USA. Is abortion ban on the horizon?

The US government on Monday warned of the possibility of a nationwide ban on abortion if legal protection for this right is reversed, as a recent Supreme Court leak seems to indicate.

“We believe there is a serious risk,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki explained during her daily press conference in response to a question about statements by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who alluded to this possibility during an interview with USA Today.

Although the presidential spokeswoman did not want to anticipate scenarios, she alluded to the government’s response to the veto of abortion from six weeks of gestation in the state of Texas, as a possible example of what the Biden administration will do if the Supreme Court repeals ‘Roe against Wade’.

Psaki recalled that the government created grants dedicated to expanding family planning services and access to contraceptives, adding that the Department of Justice had committed to supporting women’s right to reproductive health.
