There are 11 states in the US that impose prisons for abortion

Only two months have passed since the conservative Supreme Court of the United States abolished abortion rights and sentenced women in that country to prosecute if they voluntarily decide to abort their pregnancy; Incidentally, it opened the door to punish the doctors who decided to practice it. And, from that moment to the present day, 11 out of 50 states have already entered into full bans.

The country of liberty practically became a taboo on an issue that had been covered by constitutional validity from 1973 until last June, when the Supreme Court of Justice—the Republican (right) dominant overturned the ruling in the Roe v. Wade case was.

Thus, women in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Idaho, and Tennessee face imprisonment—along with the health workers who support them—if they fail their pregnancies. decide to interrupt.

In fact, any form of taxation was abolished in these states, as previously there were exceptions or, even, abortions were allowed up to a certain week of gestation, but that all ended. There they approved the last two months of regulations known throughout the country as trigger laws or trigger laws, which guarantees entry into prison if abortion is ruled out.

According to data from the Planned Parenthood Organization (which provides the largest planning network in that country), there are approximately 36 million women of reproductive age who will be affected by these harsh restrictions, which are being implemented in Republican dominated and/or conservative areas. Huh. , For example, Texas Governor Greg Abbott assured that his state wanted to “protect all children from the catastrophe of abortion.”

The area also considers punishment of up to life imprisonment for abortion facilitators, and that includes fines of up to $100,000 for healthcare workers, adding to the loss of a medical license, which is what a woman has been able to take so far. Let’s help him practice. Younger she had the right to voluntarily terminate the pregnancy.

“His fundamental right to decide what is best for his own body, life and future was taken away. Pregnant people seeking abortions have been forced to flee their communities in search of care,” Planned Parenthood’s Alexis McGill Johnson was quoted in a recent article in El País, Spain.

This has prompted women in states where abortion is now severely punished to move to other areas where this right is still protected, leading to overcrowding of health services in receiving areas.

According to the Efe agency, there are only 16 states in that country in which abortion is still legal. The information indicates that these are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Rhode Island and Washington. The District of Columbia has been added to this group, where laws have also been enacted that strengthen the protection of this right.

Because it’s a dire situation, the White House – chaired by Democratic President Joe Biden – is promoting weekly reproductive health advice, coupled with legal actions that allow women to recover that right in their own country.

And although the issue has much to do with public health, it also carries a high political burden, as it became a central issue in the campaign for the November election in which two traditional parties in the United States are playing for power. While it’s almost obvious, it’s worth remembering that Democrats want abortion rights restored, while Republicans want its ban expanded to the entire country.
