ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the initiative of U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the integrity of constitutional rights concerning the abortion controversies of pregnant inmates. Reproductive human rights scholar Rachel Roth has offered the possible effects if the political science would ignore the humanitarian approach for women. It states that a policy which protects the inmates' free reproductive choice is highly recommended by the court to abolish the court order policy.
