Roe vs. Wade: US states that will ban abortion | Digital Trends Spanish


Thousands of women in the United States are suffering a severe setback for constitutional rights, after the Supreme Court of that country revoked the Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 ruling that protects the right to abortion in the country. Now it will be left to each state to decide whether abortion is legal for its residents.

The ruling states that the Constitution “does not grant” this right and returns the authority to legislate on abortion to the “people” and their “elected representatives”.

According to him Guttmacher Institutea reproductive rights research group, 13 states have so-called trigger laws ready that will effectively ban all abortions now that the ruling is overturned.

various studies have found that abortion rates are not lower in countries with more restrictive lawsbut deaths due to abortion are up to 34 times higher.
