In the United States, the number of women at risk due to the abolition of the right to abortion was estimated
In the United States, they said that the abolition of the right to abortion will affect up to 40 million women, due to the decision of the Supreme Court, more than half of American women of childbearing age will be at risk. Such estimates are given by the calculations of the American Guttmacher Institute.
In the future, the ban on abortion could affect 26 states, where 58 percent of local residents live, who theoretically may need such an opportunity.
Experts estimate that 23 out of 26 states will definitely ban abortions, and three more of them – Nebraska, Indiana and Montana – remain in question.
On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that federal governments guaranteed abortion rights. Going forward, abortion rights will be determined by the states unless Congress takes action. Nearly half of the states have passed or will pass laws banning abortion, while others have taken strict measures to regulate the procedure.
In 1973, the US Supreme Court ruled that the state could not prevent a woman from having an abortion until the fetus was viable. The reason was the appeal of Jane Rowe (Norma McCorvey’s pseudonym). She claimed that she had been raped. Then in Texas, where she lived, abortion was prohibited. The defendant was District Attorney Henry Wade. The court decision in this case has become one of the most politically significant decisions in the United States.
