Protests and celebrations as US overturns Roe v Wade

Protests and celebrations as US overturns Roe v Wade thumbnail

The US Supreme Court has overturned the constitutional right to choose abortion which has existed for almost 50 years, paving the way for half the country to ban or severely restrict the practice.

The power to decide on abortion rights will now be handed to the 50 states to determine individually after one of the most consequential rulings in recent times by America’s highest court.

Crowds gathered outside the court in Washington DC when the ruling emerged – with some there to celebrate while others rallied against what they see as an attack on women’s freedoms.
