Abortion Around the World and Women: Are We There Yet?
Volume III, Issue III, 2020
In 2019, nearly 30 state legislatures of the United States of America passed anti-abortion bills which seek to either ban abortion outrightly like in Alabama or allow abortion only up till 6 weeks into the pregnancy- like in Louisiana- which is too soon as many women even don’t even know that they are pregnant within 6 weeks’ time. This has given considerable momentum to the century old debate of pro-life v. pro-choice, not just in America, but worldwide. In light of the above scenario, this paper aims to critically analyse the Anti- Abortion Regime in the USA, the chain of events that has led to this rather controversial state of affairs, and draw comparisons with international jurisdictions of India and Uruguay.
