Macron.Abortion is a fundamental right for all women. We must protect it

French President Emmanuel Macron

 French President Emmanuel Macron declared on Friday that abortion was a basic right for women, in response to the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn the historic 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion verdict.


"Abortion is a basic human right for all women. We must safeguard it. I'd like to express my sympathy with all the women whose liberties have been jeopardized by the United States Supreme Court today "Macron tweeted on his Twitter account.


The United States Supreme Court took the dramatic step on Friday of overturning the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which recognized a woman's constitutional right to an abortion and legalized it nationwide, handing a significant victory to Republicans and religious conservatives who want to limit or ban the procedure.
