the consequences of the end of the constitutional right to abortion in the United States

Published on : Modified :

the washington post raises this question this Thursday: women living in a state where abortion is now prohibited, will they have the possibility of going to another state to have an abortion? Nothing is less sure. Since ” several anti-abortion groups are already drafting bills that could pass in Republican-led states “, warns the daily. These texts ” aim to prevent American women from crossing state lines to abort “. Others would allow individuals to sue anyone who helps an American woman terminate a pregnancy “, reports the newspaper.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion, freedom of expression could also come under fire. ” In states that prohibit abortion, will it still be possible to talk about it freely? ? “, asks the New York Times.In other words : will women in these States have access to independent information allowing them to know the alternatives in States where abortion will always be accessible to them? ? The daily already foresees the next legal battle: that to defend the first amendment on freedom of expression.

the Boston Globe, for his part, sees in vitro fertilization in danger: “ 15% of couples in the United States cannot conceive naturally “, underlines the newspaper. But here it is: in vitro fertilization generates millions of embryos, the overwhelming majority of which are not implanted in the mother’s body, but destroyed.

Louisiana law already states that ” a viable human egg fertilized in vitro is a legal entity that must not be killed. Kentucky prohibits public medical facilities from intentionally destroying embryos in IVF “. Anti-abortionists have been fighting for decades for the status of person to be recognized for each embryo from its conception, recalls the Boston Globe.

In Colombia, the government of President-elect Gustavo Petro begins to take shape

The first leftist head of state in the country’s history wants ” transform the Colombian economy, based largely on oil and mining extractivism, into an economy of agricultural production and eco-responsible tourism “, remember El Pais. In this context, the appointment of the Minister of Finance was eagerly awaited. On Wednesday evening, Gustavo Petro entrusted this portfolio to Jose Antonio Ocampo, ” former Minister of Finance and Agriculture under other Colombian governments, famous university professor and former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Development Agency for Latin America and the Caribbean “.

Reactions in Colombia to this appointment have been glowing. The prestige of José Antonio Ocampo is unanimous. The Spectator regards it as one of the country’s most experienced economists, a centrist whose appointment should largely reassure markets that feared a radical socialist turn under Gustavo Petro “.

In the columns ofEl Tiempo, the finance minister of the outgoing Conservative government speaks of a ” excellent choice “. Like the centrist senator, Humberto de la Calle, for whom the new minister ” is progressive enough for this time of social crisis and orthodox enough not to splurge “.

Another reassuring signal, sent by President-elect Petro: this meeting with the man who had hitherto been his sworn enemy, the former president of the hard right, Alvaro Uribe. The photo of the two men sitting at the same table is on the front page of all the Colombian press. ” Gustavo Petro seeks national unity to solve the country’s problems “, note El Colombiano. This approach is driven by the vision of this leftist who wants to put an end to the politics of hatred, but also by a certain pragmatism, since the new president does not have a majority in parliament.

For the local newspaper of the city of Cali, Elpais, this is a ” historical encounter “who opened” a direct channel between the new president and his predecessor, Alvaro Uribe », still very influential in the country. The two men declared after this first tete-a-tete that they wanted to maintain the dialogue that had been started.
