2.) In 1973 the United States Supreme Court handed down the famous case Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), wherein the Court determined that the decision to have an abortion is a private decision that is protected from government intervention, in some circumstances, by the U.S. Constitution.

Which is controlling in that state, the statute or the decision of the United States Supreme Court? Explain your answer.
