France: France became the first country in the world to provide constitutional protection for the right to abortion. In the joint session of the French parliament yesterday, members of parliament voted to amend the 1958 constitution. During the meeting, the amendment was approved by 780 votes against 72. A long-standing ovation. This amendment ‘guarantees’ the right to abortion for women. Remember that abortion has been legal in France since 1975, but surveys show that About 85 percent of the public supported a constitutional amendment to protect the right to abortion. Women’s rights activists have praised President Emmanuel Macron’s move after court decisions in the United States returned abortion rights. It should be remembered that in 2022, the United States canceled the decision granting the right to abortion, which US President Joe Biden called a sad day for the country.
With this move, France has become the first country in the world to provide explicit protection for the termination of pregnancy in its constitution.
