The legal right to abortion was snatched away in America, the Supreme Court reversed the 50-year-old decision

Washington: The US Supreme Court has overturned a five-decade-old decision that legalized abortion. With this, the 50-year-old constitutional protection of abortion in America has ended. Now all the states of America will make their own separate rules regarding the right of women to abortion. In the United States, in the 1973 Roe v Wade decision, the Supreme Court upheld abortion as a constitutional right. There has been a ruckus in America in the past after the draft of this decision of the Supreme Court was leaked. On the leaked draft himself, President Joe Biden said that it is a fundamental right of a woman to decide what to do with her pregnancy.

What did the Supreme Court say
The Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution does not provide for the right to abortion. He also pointed out that the right to regulate abortion has been returned to the people and their elected representatives. Delivering the majority decision, Justice Samuel Alito said, “Abortion presents a deeply moral issue on which Americans hold sharply conflicting views. The Constitution does not prohibit citizens of each state from regulating or prohibiting abortion. does.

One out of every 4 women in the US have an abortion
Abortion is a routine and safe health care procedure in the US, used by one in four women. In a 2021 poll, 80 percent of Americans supported abortion in all or most cases. In addition, 60 percent of the respondents supported the decision in Roe v. Wade.

Critics argue – this will be the beginning of the controversy
Critics of abortion believe that this will not be the end of anything but the beginning. Republican lawmakers are strategizing to enact a law to ban abortion, which would ban abortions after six weeks nationwide. The effect of banning abortion in the US can also be seen in Australia, which is sometimes referred to as the 51st state of America. Our politics and laws are completely different when it comes to abortion.
