USA: tennis players reactions on cancellation of abortion rights – Tennis World USA

USA ended up at the center of the attention of the whole world for a decision, made official on the afternoon of Friday 24 June, which will certainly cause discussion in the coming days, weeks, months and probably years. The Supreme Court has in fact abolished the historic Roe vs Wade ruling, with which in 1973 the same body had legalized abortion in all states of the nation.

A stance that was carried out thanks to the 6 votes in favor of the provision against the 3 against: “The Constitution does not confer the right to abortion,” is written in the document. Now individual states will be free to choose their own laws on the matter, being able to follow the choice made by the Court or go against the tide.

Texas and Missouri will make it illegal, California, Oregon, Washington and even New York will defend the right. Now is the time for extensive reflections in a story that almost takes America back to the past. “The US Supreme Court took away a constitutional right.

Overturning the sentence was a tragic mistake, the result of an extreme ideology. The health and lives of women in the country are at risk. Women must remain free to travel safely to another state to seek the care they need. If she lives in a state that prohibits abortion, the Supreme Court’s decision does not prevent her from traveling in one that allows it,” President Joe Biden explained and emphasized in a speech after learning of the news.

The reaction of the tennis players

There was absolutely no lack of strong sorrow and reactions from the world of tennis, precisely from US players. On Twitter Sloane Stephens shared exactly Michelle Obama’s thought: “I am heartbroken for Americans who have lost the fundamental right to make informed decisions about their bodies.

A horrible decision with devastating consequences,” she commented. Coco Gauff‘s words are also very hard:” Incredibly disappointed with the choice made. The sad thing is, this decision won’t stop abortions from happening.

Illegal and unsafe ones will increase significantly. It’s a very sad day for our country and I can’t believe history is repeating itself once again,” she said on her Twitter account.
