The U.S. Supreme Court decided to decline major Alabama’s bid to revive the abortion restriction. On Friday, the court decided to reject this bid to revive a state law backed by Republicans.
If the bid wasn’t rejected, and things came into action. It would be illegal to get an abortion after the fifteen weeks of pregnancy. In fact, the procedure is most common during this time which is the second trimester.

Abortion Restriction: A threat to women rights?
In the 21st century, the era of women empowerment, the basic rights of women aren’t safe. The sad part is even the law is experiencing several challenges. And if abortion restriction comes into action, all kinds of abortions will be banned from the state.
The Republican Governor named Kay Ivey in May signed a stricter bid. This means the cases of pregnancies due to rapes or incest wouldn’t be allowed to be aborted as well.
Justice C Thomas in Court’s Favor
Justice C Thomas is in favor of the court and is in favor to uphold the law of abortion restriction. The Republicans have always been against abortions. The Republicans are against the procedure of abortion called dilation and evacuation.
The procedure involves dilating the women’s uterus and evacuating it. The Republicans are calling this method the dismemberment abortion and are completely against it.
The people opposing abortion are waiting for Anthony Kennedy, to be retired because he is the pivotal member in defending the pertinent abortion rights.
