Protests against abortion ban in US
According to reports, protests against the ban on abortion began in the United States.
The US Supreme Court has overturned a decision of its own 50 years ago, which declared abortion legal.
Protests have broken out in several cities, including the capital, Washington, against the decision, which was announced two days ago.

In the immediate aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling, right-wing and conservative US states have banned the provision of medical abortion services immediately.
President Joe Biden has called the abortion court’s decision a “tragic mistake” based on extremist ideology.
Biden called on Congress to protect abortion services in law. According to Biden, this will be a major issue in the November midterm elections.
