My body my business
‘ My body my business ‘ In June 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe vs Wade, the groundbreaking piece of legislation that made access to abortion a federal right in the United States. The decision dismantled 50 years of legal protection and paved the way for individual states to curtail or completely ban abortion rights.
Already in many states abortion is banned automatically or through state measures after the decision. In addition, other landmark rulings need to be reconsidered, including established rights of access to contraception, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriage. The implications, especially for women of color, will be very worrisome. It should not be the case that in a country like America the equality between men and women is thrown back in time 50 years again
