News Synopsis

In America, there has been a debate about abortion. The Supreme Court of America has overturned a nearly 50-year-old historic decision that allowed abortion to be legal, after which voices of protest are being raised. After the US Supreme Court overturned the Roe v Wade decision, the legal status of the right to abortion for women in America would end. The US Supreme Court has made it clear in the decision that the Constitution of the country does not give the right of abortion. With this, now there is every possibility in America that all the states of the country can make their own rules regarding abortion.

Let us tell you that the decision which has been reversed regarding abortion in America was given by the US Supreme Court in the year 1973. The name of this case is Roe vs. Wade. In that case, a woman named Norma McCorvy already had two children, but she did not want a third child. The Federal Court did not allow her to have an abortion, shortly after which she approached the Supreme Court and the court, ruling in favor, allowed the abortion. During that time, the court said that the decision regarding the pregnancy should be of the woman. After this decision of the Supreme Court, women in America got the right to safe abortion.

On this matter, President of America Joe Biden Joe Biden has also expressed concern about this decision of the Supreme Court regarding abortion in America. He has said that the Supreme Court's decision is taking the country on a dangerous path. However, he has appealed to the protesters not to take the law into their own hands.
