The Right to Abortion: The Supreme Court Judgment That Shocked the United States
The Supreme Court on Friday ruled in favor of ending the constitutional protection of the right to abortion in the United States.
The Supreme Court of the United States has overturned a 50-year-old order legalizing the right to abortion nationwide. The ruling has thus become an opportunity for individual provinces to no longer have the power to prohibit abortion.
In a 1973 lawsuit between Roe and Wade in the United States, it was ruled that ‘abortion is a woman’s personal right, it is a constitutional right’.
Similarly, in a 1992 case between Pennsylvania and Casey, it was ruled that ‘a woman involved in a 22 to 24 week pregnancy can legally have an abortion’.
In this case, the rights to abortion in the United States will be reversed following today’s ruling. The provinces will no longer take action one by one to ban the practice of abortion. Probably half of the U.S. states are expected to introduce new legislation or regulations that would ban abortion.
Following the Supreme Court ruling, 13 provinces have enacted laws prohibiting abortion. Others are likely to pass some new restrictions quickly.
States which are likely to be the first to restrict abortion – Arkansas, Idaho ,Kentucky ,Louisiana,Mississippi, Missouri ,North Dakota,Oklahoma ,South Dakota ,Tennessee,Texas ,Utah ,Wyoming.
Control of guns in the United States: Passage of the Bill in the Senate
With the permit for personal possession of firearms in the United States , there has been widespread demand for a restriction on the use of firearms in the wake of recent shootings there. At the same time, the notion that owning a firearm is an individual’s right is put aside.
Following this, a bill was introduced in the Senate imposing additional restrictions on the possession of firearms by civilians. There were 64 votes in favor of the bill and 34 against. The bill was subsequently passed.
Fourteen Republican representatives voted in favor of the bill. The bill will then be put to a final vote over the weekend.
The National Rifle Association has opposed the bill. The first gun control law was passed in 1994.
The law prohibits the use of high-powered firearms by the public. But the law expired 10 years later.
This is the first time since then that the gun control law has received this level of support from Republican and Democratic senators.
