(en) France, UCL - For the right to abortion, solidarity with women around the world (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 14 Sep 2021 10:41:13 +0300

Victory of the conservatives in their war against women: Texas has just adopted a law that prohibits abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy, whatever the circumstances. It is the most restrictive law on abortion (abortion and IMG) since its legalization. ---- Six weeks of pregnancy is half the period granted by France, a quarter of that granted in Spain. At six weeks, that is not enough time for most women to realize that they are pregnant. This law makes no exception for victims of rape and incest, or even when the embryo is not viable. ---- Endorsed by a Supreme Court ruling, this law gives citizens the responsibility to file complaints against pregnant women and organizations that help them to abort, with the possibility of financial compensation. It is thus a question of establishing a right of denunciation against women and those who would provide help, support or even simple advice. A website aimed at collecting these accusations was even opened briefly. The Texan state thus encourages violence against those who practice and benefit from abortion. In addition, by taking advantage of the lockdown of the Supreme Court of the United States, the conservatives are thus opening the door to a judicial war which ultimately aims to effectively abolish the right to abortion in this country,

As usual, this law will hit the poorest and most precarious among Texans even harder. In addition to the risk of being subjected to violence following a denunciation, many women will be forced to go to a border state which will represent an extreme cost and material difficulties; the only additional cost calculated to cross the border, corresponding on average to a full working day at minimum wage.

The UCL wishes to recall that the right to dispose of one's body, to freely choose one's pregnancy, is a fundamental freedom. All of our feminist solidarity goes to women in Texas and elsewhere, humiliated and coerced by their fellow citizens and judges. Remember that banning abortion does not make abortions go away, only safe abortions.
