The United States Supreme Court has decided end the right to abortion in the country as it has been regulated and constitutionally protected for the last five decades. Thus it follows from first draft majority opinion of the High Court that it has obtained in a unprecedented exclusive ‘Politico’.

Revocation

“Roe was blatantly wrong from the start,” Alito writes in a reference to Roe v. wade, the 1973 decision that gave US federal constitutional protection to the right to abortion. “We maintain that Roe and Casey must be revoked”, is also read in the opinion, alluding to another Supreme Court ruling in 1992 that ratified the right.

I would stop the regulation of abortion in the hands of the states, who are the ones who should decide whether to allow it or not. At least in 13 Republican-controlled there are laws prepared that, with a sentence revoking Roe (and not eliminating only some of the protections it offered), they would immediately make abortion illegal.
