An alarming step backwards for the Americas. On Friday June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned the Roe vs. Wade judgment which had recognized the right to abortion at the federal level for 1973 years. He was, until now, authorized to terminate a pregnancy until the fetus was considered “viable“, that is to say up to 22 to 24 weeks. But according to Samuel Alito, one of the assessor judges who sits across the Atlantic, the right to abortion is not “not rooted in history or tradition” of the country. This is what is noted, in any case, in the official document that he wrote.
In America, in Europe, all over the world, this societal regression is scandalous. As of July 1, 2022, 16 US states have banned the right to abortion or are “on the way” to ban it, according to the newspaper The world, including Texas, Kentucky or Wyoming. Five other states have decided to restrict it by reducing the legal period to 6 to 8 weeks. To combat this phenomenon, remotely, the non-profit organization Thanks for nothing organized a protest movement in Paris on Sunday July 3, 2022. Although very pregnant, Alysson Paradise wanted to participate in the effort alongside her soon-to-be 7-year-old little boy, Marcus.
