In Washington, several thousand people gathered on the National Mall at the weekend and then walked to the country’s Supreme Court. According to US media reports, people demonstrated in hundreds of cities across the country. An expected court decision is likely to result in massive restrictions on abortion rights with serious consequences for women in the country.

There is no federal law in the United States that allows or prohibits abortion. However, abortions are permitted at least until the fetus is viable – today around the 24th week. It is based on a 1973 US Supreme Court ruling, Roe v. Wade is known. At the beginning of May, the magazine “Politico” published the draft of the Supreme Court’s verdict. It shows that the US Supreme Court is about to overturn this liberal abortion law. In the absence of federal legislation, the states would have jurisdiction. Numerous conservative-governed states want to largely ban abortion.
