Big decision by US Supreme Court, abolished the constitutional right to abortion

Washington: Breaking news coming from US taken by Supreme Court on Friday to abolished the constitutional right to abortion. America SC ended abortion rights, which have been one of the most divisive and bitterly contested issues in American politics. The court overturned the landmark 1973 ruling of Roe v Wade which ensured a woman’s right to an abortion and said that individual states may allow or prohibit the procedure.

The court’s decision came in the decisive case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which Mississippi’s last abortion clinic opposed the state’s efforts to ban abortion after 15 weeks and reverse Row in the process. The majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, held that abortion is a deeply moral issue on which the American people hold conflicting views. We believe that Roe and Casey should be dismissed. The constitution does not prohibit citizens of each state from regulating or prohibiting abortion.

The Court held that the Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision. Reversing the 1973 ruling would again allow individual US states to ban abortions. At least 26 states are expected to do so immediately or at the earliest.

Actually, recently there has been a significant increase in the cases of abortion in America. Religious factors have also been involved in whether women should be given the right to abortion. It has also been a point of contention between Republicans (Conservatives) and Democrats (Liberals). This dispute reached the Supreme Court in 1973, which is known as the Roe v Wade case.
