Obama Reacts As US Supreme Court Overturns Ruling That Legalized Abortion In The US

The former President of the United States, Barack Obama, has provided his response following the decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to strike down the right to abortion in the United States.

The decision of the United States Supreme Court to reverse Roe v. Wade was reportedly announced a few hours ago by the Daily Mail. The judgment that was made in the case of Roe v. Wade over half a century ago acknowledged that the right to personal privacy that is guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States protects a woman's rights to have an abortion.

According to the information provided in the report, on January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court came to the conclusion that the Constitutional right to privacy includes protection for women who choose to have abortions.

Nevertheless, as a result of the decision being reversed, it is anticipated that around 24 states will take the necessary steps to make abortion illegal if they are given the opportunity to do so.

As was to be expected, many who are against abortion have praised the Supreme Court for its decision, while a large number of individuals who are in favor of abortion rights have quickly denounced the decision.

In his response, former US President Barack Obama, who was dissatisfied with the ruling, lamented the fact that by its ruling, the Supreme Court had not only overturned a precedent that had been in place for nearly half a century, but it had also relegated the most intensely personal decision that an individual can make to the whims of politicians. Obama was reacting to the fact that the precedent had been in place for nearly half a century. According to him, this constitutes an assault on the fundamental liberties enjoyed by millions of people in the United States.
