What part of taking away people's rights to make decisions for themselves is okay?

From the TV series The Handmaid's Tale

The supreme court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade is going backwards to the Middle Ages! Before christianity, most cultures had their own way of ending a pregnancy, using abortifacients such as herbal infusions (e.g. pennyroyal and silphium), teas, pessaries or deliberate, heavy manual labor. It's not new. It's an individual's choice, not a societally prescribed ruling. 

What's the point of giving the supreme court sovereignty to establish the laws of the land and constitutional rights if it's there to be revoked?

I'm really struggling with this maniacal, patriarchal turn our country's taking. It's scary. Where will it end?
