United States: The US Supreme Court may overturn a 50-year-old decision on the constitutional right to abortion. A draft of the Supreme Court related to this has been leaked. According to drafts leaked to the media, abortion rights are set to be abolished. The draft suggested that the Supreme Court voted to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Demonstrations have started in America against this.
Media reports have said that leaking this draft before the mid-term election could be beneficial for President Joe Biden’s party. Some Republicans behind the scenes are also happy, as the Supreme Court move could end abortion rights and criminalize the practice in many states. Americans have united against this.
November has raised hopes of a large majority in Congress for the Republican Party. A recent survey found that 70% of Americans are against overturning the Roe v. Wade decision. Former President Barack Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, said the Supreme Court’s decision could push women, and especially young voters, to Republican support.
Preparations have begun for the mid-term elections in America. If the Supreme Court gives this decision, then Joe Biden, who seems to be lagging behind in the survey so far, can get some edge. In a recent survey by three agencies, President Joe Biden’s Democratic Party is lagging behind former President Donald Trump’s Republican Party.
The biggest displeasure of the people surveyed with the Democratic Party is rising inflation. 41% of the people say that the Republican Party will prove to be better in controlling the rising inflation. On the other hand, only 20% supported the steps taken by the Biden government on the same issue.
