Our BBC Young Reporter club were lucky enough to interview a Journalist, Megan Ford from the Nursing Times, this week. Pupils planned and asked questions about the ins and outs of Journalism and the best way to get into the profession. It was a really great insight for the pupils and they were excellent! Mr Hickman


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.

United States Abortion ruling as “a step backwards”


Abortion has been banned in the US, and it can affect many lives. Recently many protests have been going on against abortion, but they think nothing is going to change.

When the news broke, many countries in the US panicked and quickly made it illegal, but others disagreed. The US president Joe Biden has said that he’s “completely against abortion,” and he’s trying to find out ways to stop it from continuing.

Abortion is costing other countries more money as other people are being transferred to other countries, but they say that it’s for a good cause.”

Many people have been saying that “the world is evolving backwards,” as its affecting women’s rights, and people are already struggling because of it. Some people are moving out of the US, so they can get the pill, but are afraid to go back as they think they are going to get arrested. Some doctors can be arrested for giving the pill in America.

People have been asking:

  • How long will it last?
  • Do you think that it will happen in the UK?
  • What has it got to do with Joe Biden, and is it his fault?

In the USA they have banned abortion and the UK might as well

On Friday 24 June 2022, 19;03 BST, The Supreme Court banned the legal right for abortion in many stated in the US. President Joe Bidon has a very strong opinion on this situation and says, “The health and life of woman of our nation are now at risk.” Furthermore, Biden tweets: “If banning abortion ‘stops abortions’, let’s ban guns and stop gun violence.” 688k agree with this statement and 2,817 have replied to this tweet.

Consecutive MP Scott Benton celebrates the supreme court’s decision to ban abortion in the U.S. Continuing with the crazy news that has hit them recently.

On Friday 24 June the supreme court officially made it illegal for a woman of girl to have an abortion.

6 States have already banned abortion and 12 have bans or severe restrictions soon. Another 12 have threatened it. All these states together have 39.8 million women.
Not only have women been fighting for decades for them to have equal rights and pay they now do not have choice over their own bodies. I personally find this disgusting and I'm terrified for the girls and women that are going to die because of a law that 6 elderly men and a women decided was going to help their country but instead turned it back 200 years and basically supprting the men that make females feel  like objects and its even worse when its coming from their own government.
