WASHINGTON: The US Supreme Court on Friday overturned a 50-year-old law. Now no woman in America can have an unwanted abortion. Protests have broken out across the country against the US Supreme Court ruling. Women have taken to the streets. President Biden called the verdict “tragic” and appealed to the people to keep the peace.
The US Supreme Court has overturned a ruling in the Rowe and Wade case, which ruled that abortion was a constitutional right of women. Today’s verdict is the result of decades of efforts by anti-abortion activists. The ruling is believed to have been made possible by three judges appointed by former President Donald Trump. It is worth mentioning here that the Supreme Court bench has given this verdict not by consensus but by a majority of 5: 6 and the judges who had an opinion contrary to this verdict said that it is sad to say that millions of American women will lose their constitutional right to abortion. It is particularly noteworthy that Orthodox Christians consider abortion to be a grave sin, and staunch Christians oppose abortion after a few weeks, even if the woman’s life is in danger. Earlier, Mississippi state law prohibited abortion after 12 weeks.
Today’s Supreme Court ruling threatens to ban abortion in as many as half of the US states. It is learned that some states have already prepared draft laws to ban the ban. As many as seven US states are expected to ban abortion after the ruling, and the issue is likely to resume in the United States. The Supreme Court ruling is likely to have a major impact on poor women who still have limited access to health care. To this day, as many as ten percent of Americans believe that abortion should not be performed under any circumstances.
Biden called the day of the verdict on the abortion tragic
Washington, Ta. 24 (AP): U.S. President Dr. Biden has said he will do everything in his power to protect women’s rights to abortion in states where abortion is banned. He made the remarks after the Supreme Court overturned Wade’s judgment against Rowe, a landmark judgment of 1973 that legalized abortion across the country. President Joe Biden told the White House on Friday that it was a tragic day for the court and the country. He further added that “the court has done what it has never done, it has taken away a constitutional right that is very basic and very American”.
He urged abortion supporters to demonstrate peacefully. The White House has been preparing for the moment since a draft court ruling was leaked in May. Officials discussed with state leaders, lawyers, health professionals and others to prepare for a future without a fence against Rowe. Thousands of abortion supporters gathered outside the Supreme Court after the verdict. Those people were shouting slogans. ‘Legalize abortion on demand’. ‘This judgment should be reversed’. Some people were protesting in favor of the verdict, shouting, ‘Is the future anti-abortion?’ And ‘Break Ron’.
