Abortion rights in the US: 'America has joined repressive regimes in regulating women's bodies'

President Joe Biden said on Wednesday the Supreme Court and Republicans are clueless about the power of American women as he signed a second executive order aimed at protecting abortion rights. The president's actions come a day after Kansas voters rejected one such effort, to remove abortion protections from the state's constitution. The vote was a resounding win for the abortion rights movement in the first statewide electoral test since the Supreme Court ruling. For more analysis on the continued fallout of the US Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, FRANCE 24 is joined by award-winning documentary filmmaker Dawn Porter. She asserts that 'Americans are overwhelmingly in support of choice,' as seen by the Kansas referendum. Ms. Porter describes states' efforts across the country to roll back access to abortion as "an abhorrent and unbelievable situation for a democracy to be in today. America has joined repressive regimes in regulating women's bodies in shutting down the right to choice."
