Roe v. Wade, along with its accompanying ruling, Doe v. Bolton, mandate that abortion be legal up till birth if any one physician willing to perform the abortion says it is needed for the "health of the mother." Roe cites specific examples of what may be considered harmful to a mother's health, such as the "stigma of unwed motherhood," the work of "child care," and the distress of having an "unwanted child."
