Here Is What Abortion Rights Are Like Around the Rest of the World

Here Is What Abortion Rights, Are Like Around the Rest of the World.

The June 24 Supreme Court decision that overturns Roe v.

Wade means that dozens of U.S. states could ban abortion.

Legal experts say the decision puts the U.S. with a small number of nations that have restricted abortion in recent decades.

[Overturning 'Roe' places] the United States in the company of countries like Poland and Nicaragua, Supreme Court Brief, via 'The New York Times'.

By contrast, other nations with similar democracies have expanded access to abortion in recent decades.

In countries with legal traditions and democratic values most comparable to the United States, such as Great Britain and Canada, abortion is legal until at least viability, Supreme Court Brief, via 'The New York Times'.

13 states already have trigger-bans in place.

Experts say it may become worth it to consider international options.

If enough states prohibit [abortion], there might be some places where it's cheaper or easier to travel internationally [...] than it is to travel to another state, Glenn Cohen, Harvard Law School Professor, via 'USA Today'.

72 countries allow abortion "on request," as the U.S. did for 50 years until the 'Dobbs' decision on June 24.

With close to 601 million women of child-bearing age, some of these nations have friendly relations with the U.S., such as Canada, Puerto Rico, France and Germany.

Other countries on this list include North Korea, China, Cuba, Belarus and the Russian Federation.

Other countries on this list include North Korea, China, Cuba, Belarus and the Russian Federation.

23 percent of women of child-bearing age live in countries in which abortion is legal on extensive social or economic grounds.

14 percent of women of child-bearing age live in countries that allow abortion for broad reasons pertaining to health.

Five percent of women of childbearing age (close to 90 million women) live in countries where abortion is outlawed.

All of these numbers have yet to be updated in the wake of the June 24 Supreme Court decision
