USA: Supreme Court ban abortion, wipes away ‘Rights’ from constitution

The United States Supreme Court has ended constitutional protections for abortion that had been in place nearly 50 years, a decision by its conservative majority to overturn the court’s landmark abortion cases.

Friday’s outcome overturning Roe v. Wade is expected to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states –expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, which is related to a highly restrictiveness Mississippi abortion law.
