Abortion rights protesters, including Full House actress Jodie Sweetin, were shoved to the ground by police officers during a demonstration in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Video footage posted on social media appeared to show members of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) roughly pushing, throwing, and hitting protesters with their hands and batons.

Thousands of protesters hit the streets across the US on Friday and Saturday following the US Hooggeregshof’s decision to strike down the constitutional right to abortion care by overturning the landmark 1973 decision in Roe v Wade.

Intussen, Joe Biden has urged voters to support lawmakers who will codify dokters versoek die Hooggeregshof om aborsieregte te beskerm into law, calling the high court’s decision a “sad day” for the court and country after the court’s conservative majority took the unprecedented step to strip a constitutional right from Americans.

The president also blamed former president Donald Trump for nominating justices willing to undermine established precedent, while clinics across the US in states that have outlawed abortion prepared to close their doors, even as patients wait to return for appointments.

Mr Albanese told ABC that women were “entitled to their own views, but not to impose their views on women for whom this is a deeply personal decision.”

Hy het bygevoeg: “That is, in my view, one for an individual woman to make based upon their own circumstances, including the health implications.

“This decision has caused enormous distress. And it is a setback for women and their right to control their own bodies and their lives in the United States. It is a good thing that in Australia, this is not a matter for partisan political debate," hy het gesê.

“That’s not the debate today in Arkansas. It might be in the future," hy het gesê, adding that the law currently bans abortions with only one exception.

There are still seven cases left for the Supreme Court to decide this term

Supreme Court justices will return to the court on Monday morning with seven argued cases to decide this term, set to end later this month or in July.

Rulings are released one by one on the court’s website beginning at 10 am EST, in 10-minute intervals. They are released in reverse-ranking order of justices’ seniority. Opinions from Chief Justice John Roberts typically are released last.

We do not know which cases will be decided on each opinion-issuance day or in what order they will released.

But remaining cases include a potentially landmark decision in West Virginia v the Environmental Protection Agency, a high-stakes climiate crisis case that could set limits on the Biden administration’s attempts to slow the damage by regulating greenhouse gases.

The court is likely to schedule at least one more opinion issuance day next week.

Maternal mortality rates in the US outpace other industrialised nations. It’s about to get worse

Without access to abortion care or financial support and guaranteed healthcare, the nation’s most vulnerable women could be forced to carry unwanted or unsafe pregnancies to term, or self-manage abortions, worrying health officials and physicians that the end of constitutional protections for abortion access will have a devastating impact to maternal health outcomes.

Rates of pregnancy-related deaths have steadily risen in recent years, increasing from 20.1 deaths per 100,000 births in 2019 aan 23.8 in 2020 – easily outpacing other industrialised nations.

Abortion pill manufacturer ‘well prepared’ for surge in demand after Supreme Court ruling

Danco Laboratories, one of the pharmaceutical companies that manufactures mifepristone, the FDA-approved drug for abortion care, said the company is “well prepared” for any surge in demand after the US Supreme Court revoked the constitutional right to abortion.

Supply of the brand-name drug Mifeprex is “plentiful and stable,” according to a company spokesperson.

“We are incredibly disappointed by, and not at all in agreement with the decision [the Supreme Court] made,”Het die woordvoerder gesê. “Danco remains steadfast in our commitment to assuring that healthcare providers and women have access to Mifeprex as an option for safe and effective early abortion.”

A two-drug regimen of mifepristone and misoprostol – drugs that are available over the counter in some countries – is overwhelmingly safe and effective, and can be taken in the comfort of a patient’s home.

Medication abortion is by far the most common form of abortion care in the US, accounting for nearly 60 per cent of all procedures. The drug was approved for use by the US Food and Drug Administration in most cases up to 10 weeks of pregnancy in 2000.

Laas jaar, the FDA permanently lifted the in-person requirement for medication abortion prescriptions, allowing patients to access the drugs via telehealth appointments and online pharmacies so patients can take the drugs at home.

State restrictions on abortion care largely do not distinguigh between procedural abortions and mediation abortions. Anti-abortion state legislators are increasingly targeting the drugs, including laws against telemedicine appointments, online prescriptions and mail-ordering

The Justice Department has warned states against implementing bans on FDA-approved abortion drugs, setting up looming legal battles over their access.
