In a 1994 statement to the Pontifical Academy for Life by John Paul II, the court’s debate demonstrated how “the issue of abortion can provoke a heated debate. Changing the position of a better country with a long democratic tradition on this issue is a challenge to the whole world.
“Safety and security of human life is not an issue that can only exist in the exercise of individual rights, but a matter of broader social purpose,” the text added.
Following this decision, he points out that the world wants to “reopen the non-ideological debate about the place occupied by the security of life in civil society” and to build “what kind of coexistence and society”.
“It’s about ensuring adequate sex education, accessing health care for all, and preparing legal measures to protect family and motherhood, overcoming existing inequalities,” he added.
Vincenzo Bacchia, President of the Pontifical Academy for Life, said: “In the face of a Western society that is losing its interest in life, this act is a powerful call to reflect together the serious and urgent issue of human pregnancy.
“It is a time to heal wounds and heal social divisions; It’s time for rational reflection and civil dialogue, and it’s time for us to come together and build a community and economy that supports marriages and families.
The U.S. Supreme Court today overturned the protection of the right to abortion that has been in place in the country since 1973, allowing each state to decide whether to maintain or prohibit voluntary termination of pregnancy.
Supreme Court justices, with a conservative majority, said “Roe V. Wade” defended the constitutional right of women to abortion.
Following the Supreme Court ruling, several U.S. states have already announced that they will take steps to prevent voluntary termination of pregnancy in their region.
