America BANS rights for women and girls to have abortions in over THIRTY states
6 states are banned with 24 threatened, 13 being expected to ban
Protests can be heard around the US fighting for the rights of women. These rights have existed for over 50 years, yet they were abolished by the US supreme court on Friday. This left individual states to decide what to do, most of which siding with this choice.
It remains legal to travel to a different state for abortion, though governments do not encourage it. Banned states are looking at way to prevent woman receiving the pill or out of state abortions in ways such as tracking internet IP addresses.
Many states, including Idaho, Mississippi, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming, preparation for this, placed trigger bans over thir states, which may come down at any point.
Six states have the ban in place, with more from the list above being expected to follow. The rest of the states are either unsure on what to do, or have laws protecting the rights to abortion.
This leaves many questions unanswered. Will other states follow? If so, what states? Will other countries also put restrictions in place? The list goes on, all we know is that women’s rights are being unnecessarily stripped away.
