America's Allies Have Spoken Out Against The Overturning Of Roe v. Wade

The Overturning of Roe v. Wade Has Influenced Other Countries and How They Tackle Reproductive Rights.


There are over 195 countries on Earth, yet the overturning of Roe v. Wade put the United States in a minority category, with 66 other countries prohibiting abortions. While all 50 states in America haven’t abolished abortions, over half of them implemented trigger bans that will severely restrict or terminate a woman’s right to choose.

While June 24 was a day of devastation in the United States, thousands of people in other countries protested in support of abortion rights; a crowd gathered outside of the U.S. Embassy in London along with posters and signs that read “Our bodies, our choice.” Political leaders also joined the conversation, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson claiming that the overturning of Roe v. Wade is “a big step backwards” for America. 

France is another country fighting back against the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Over the last few days, the French government has discussed the possibility of permanently adding abortion rights into its constitution. Canada, another ally of the United States, doesn’t have an abortion ban because it’s legal for women to get abortions at all stages of pregnancy, no matter the reason. However, Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, spoke out against the overturning of Roe v. Wade and said, “No government, politician, or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body.”

The fight for a woman's right to choose will never stop until the government stops trying to control other people's bodies.
