East pen webdesk :. The Vatican has welcomed a US Supreme Court ruling overturning a constitutional right to abortion. A statement from the Pontifical Academy for Life, a Catholic church-controlled body, said in a statement that “a large country with a long democratic tradition has changed its position on this issue, challenging the world.”
The statement further said that the protection and defense of human life cannot be limited to the exercise of personal rights. It is a matter of wide social significance. For this reason, the government should not be stuck in an ideological position but should formulate life-sustaining policies.
Last Friday, in a 6-3 vote, the US Supreme Court dismissed the 1973 lawsuit, which had guaranteed the constitutional right to abortion in the United States for almost 50 years. The US Supreme Court ruling will ban abortion in many US states. But President Joe Biden condemned the decision, saying it delayed the United States by 150 years.
“The court’s decision to criminalize abortion has taken the country back to the eighteenth century,” Biden said. All in all it is a sad day for the country. But that doesn’t mean the fight is over. ” Many in the country have reacted angrily to the US court’s ruling. There are protests in several US states over the right to abortion.
