States quick to criminalise abortion after SCOTUS decision

From First Up, 5:43 am on 27 June 2022

To the United States, where some states have already made it illegal for a woman to get an abortion, with clinics forced to close their doors and women needing treatment to cross state lines to get it. There have have been massive protests across the country after the US Supreme Court overturned the Roe v Wade decision over the weekend, meaning it's now up to individual states rather than the federal government to decide whether it's a crime for women & non-binary people to get an abortion.
