will the fight for abortion rights continue in 2024 all you need to know
More than a year after the United States supreme court overturned Roe v Wade, 21 states have banned abortion or restricted the procedure. The abortion rights supporters are going to state legislatures, courtrooms, voting booths and hospitals to fight for abortion rights.
According to a report by the New York Times, a few states have enacted bans or restrictions in the United States. However, some states have added new protections for the safety of women.
Will the fight for abortion rights continue in 2024?
The fight for abortion rights will continue in the United States in 2024. In Alabama, abortion is banned in almost all circumstances, and activists are fighting for abortion rights.
For activists and Democrats, abortion rights are important. Activists are already at work on 2024 abortion-related ballot measures. The 2024 United States presidential election can decide the fate of women and the future of abortion rights.
Women’s rights and abortion rights will play a crucial role in deciding the result of the 2024 election. US Vice President Kamala Harris is already shifting focus on abortion rights and women’s rights. She said in a statement, “Every woman should have the right to make decisions about her own body — not the government.”
US States where the fate of abortion rights could be on 2024 ballots
Arizona could see the fate of abortion rights on 2024 ballots. Arizona for Abortion Access, a coalition of reproductive health, rights, and justice organizations, has been working to put a constitutional amendment on the 2024 ballot, which could guarantee a right to abortion.
Colorado could also see the fate of abortion rights on 2024 ballots. Anti-abortion advocates have launched efforts to put constitutional amendments on the 2024 ballot.
Florida also wants to establish a right to abortion up until the point of fetal viability in the constitution. Voters will seek an amendment on the November 2024 ballot for abortion rights.
Missouri aims to repeal the strict abortion ban. Voters aim to establish a constitutional right to make decisions on “all matters related to reproductive health care.” Activists have fought against strict abortion measures for months.
Nevada also wants to establish a constitutional right to abortion before the point of fetal viability in the state. Abortion rights advocates will introduce a measure on 2024 ballots. Activists in Nevada are shifting focus on abortion rights and women’s rights.
New York in the United States will vote to establish a right to abortion and other reproductive health care in the state constitution. The legislation will now go to the voters in 2024 for final approval.
Abortion rights are women’s rights
Last month, in a huge win for women’s rights, Ohio voters added abortion rights to the state’s constitution. It was a major victory for abortion rights supporters in the United States.
US President Joe Biden said, “My administration will continue to protect access to reproductive health care.”
Ohio’s Issue 1 declared an individual’s right to “make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions.” Ohio’s abortion measure, known as Issue 1, has been celebrated by women rights activists.
Roe vs Wade ruling
During the 1973 Roe v Wade ruling, the US court said that the country could not ban abortions before fetal viability, the point at which the fetus can survive outside the womb. That was around 28 weeks at that time, and now it is around 23 weeks, because of improvements in medical technology.
Doctors in many US states have claimed that the standard care for miscarriages is being delayed or even denied due to abortion laws.
