The Burger Court vote in Roe v. Wade, 410 US 113 (1973) was split 7-2, as contrasted with the later 5-4 Rehnquist Court vote in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 505 US 833 (1992), a later case that upheld Roe and removed many obstacles in state laws restricting women's access to abortion without overtly prohibiting it. The the voting shift in the latter case was caused by the addition of more conservative justices to the Court, following a long string of Republican Presidencies.

Majority (Roe)

Chief Justice Warren Burger

Justice William O. Douglas

Justice William J. Brennan

Justice Potter Stewart

Justice Thurgood Marshall

Justice Harry Blackmun*

Justice Lewis Powell

Dissenting (Wade)

Justice Byron White

Justice William Rehnquist

* Justice Blackmun wrote the majority opinion.
