What women who have an abortion now risk in certain American states – BFMTV

-

After the US Supreme Court’s decision to revoke the right to abortion, some states have already banned it. Others go even further, providing for prison sentences for women or doctors. A halt in the right to abortion. After the Supreme Court’s decision to challenge the Roe versus Wade decision on Friday, leaving the choice to the States to legislate themselves on the question, 9 have already banned abortion in stride, according to the New York Times .Among them Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, or South Dakota. Efficiency allowed by the “trigger laws” or “zombie” laws drafted to automatically come into force in the event of a reversal of the Supreme Court. 13 States had taken such measures prior to the Supreme Court’s decision. According to the Guttmacher Institute, in all, 26 states could ban abortion. Up to 10 years in prison in Louisiana But while some states prohibit voluntary termination of pregnancy, others go even further by providing penalties for women who have abortions and for the health professionals who perform them. In Louisiana, for example, representatives passed a law last May that allows women to be prosecuted in criminal court and declares abortion a homicide. Women and health professionals can then incur up to 10 years in prison. Same case in Arkansas and Oklahoma, where doctors can be sent to court and incur up to 10 years in prison. Some exceptions are made in Louisiana and Arkansas for those who treat miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies. In Missouri, a very conservative southern state and the first to ban abortion on Friday, patients also risk up to to 15 years in prison. State officials are also analyzing a bill to prevent residents from traveling to neighboring states for abortions and to sue doctors in court. Anyone who performs an abortion faces up to 5 years in prison in Kentucky, except when it comes to saving the woman’s life. In South Dakota, medical professionals can face up to two years behind bars except to save the patient’s life.”American women’s lives are at stake”In Texas and Idaho, doctors can be denounced by the families of women who have had an abortion. In some cases, families can also file a complaint. Texas even promises a bonus of up to 10,000 dollars for those who denounce abortions. Provisions that greatly worry associations defending the right to abortion. Elizabeth Schlachter, spokesperson for the International Planned Parenthood Federation in the United States, speaks to our colleagues at Franceinfo about “terrible news for American women living in these states (…) The lives of many American women are at stake Louisiana Civil Liberties Union director Chris Kaiser also speaks of a “barbaric law that would put people at risk of life and murder for aborting.” US President Joe Biden assures that “the fight is not over” in his speech, saying, “I will do everything in my power to protect women’s rights”. There remains the case of the abortion pill which represents almost the half of abortions in the United States according to the Guttmacher Institute. These pills, which can be taken up to 10 weeks of pregnancy, have been available via online sales since the Covid-19 epidemic. The sale has also increased significantly since the epidemic. Despite a legal vagueness around this pill, elected officials are looking to have it banned in certain states or limit its use.
