Revocation of the right to abortion in the United States: “Countries that are religious are a danger to women’s freedoms”, denounces Élisabeth Badinter

-

“A feeling of despair and unprecedented indignation”, reacts Élisabeth Badinter on Saturday June 25, 2022 on France Inter, after the decision of the American Supreme Court to revoke the Roe vs Wade judgment of 1973 on Friday. This judgment paved the way for the legalization of abortion in the United States. “It’s a step back, not only 50 years but 150 years ago, and it’s unbearable”, protests the philosopher and feminist Élisabeth Badinter. >> Report. End of the constitutional right to abortion in the United States: “It’s ridiculous that nine individuals can determine our fundamental human rights” franceinfo: What does this revocation of the right to abortion in the United States inspire in you? Elisabeth Badinter: A feeling of despair. Since you can’t overturn a decision of the US Supreme Court like that, it will be extremely difficult for years. “If the country that seems to be the head of Western democracies does this, we are in great danger.” Elisabeth Badinter at franceinfo I must say that it is both despair and unprecedented indignation. Women are put in a terrible state of dependence by politics. Every American state will decide what a woman should do with her body, it’s absolutely unbearable. It makes me think that countries that are religious, whether Muslim or America in this case, are a danger to women’s freedoms. What is a religion that confines women to their sole role of procreation? I don’t know how to answer this question. But I would say that America, which calls itself a secular country, has a secularism that does not resemble ours at all. In France, we must hold on. We can’t avoid asking ourselves the question ‘and if that happened to us, French women, what should we do?’ It is indeed secularism that protects us from all this. God does not legislate. Human beings are the ones who decide their fate. I have never thanked the law of 1905 so much, because religion has been put back in its place, that is to say in the private sector. When you don’t do that, as Mr. Trump said, ‘God prevails’. It’s a step back, not just 50 years, but 150 years and it’s unbearable. “Everything must be done to keep the course of separation between Church and State.” Élisabeth Badinter at franceinfo No longer having the choice to dispose of your body, is that what is the most serious? Absolutely. We can very well not want children, live a childless life. Therefore it is an incredible right that has been taken away from women. We are no longer in the old days. It seems to me that there is a contradiction in what is happening in America. 50% of women live below the poverty line and will no longer be able to have an abortion. Which means for thousands, even millions, of women a failed, ruined life. Even if at the moment the democratic states are doing everything they can to alleviate this, by increasing the possibilities of having abortions for women, by increasing the money they can earn to come and make the trip. Despite all these decisions, I think it will be extremely difficult.
