US abortion rights – level 1

12-05-2022 07:00

On Monday, the US news says that the Supreme Court may end a law. The law is from 1973. It is called Roe Vs. Wade. It lets abortion happen in the US.

The law is important in the US. Some people think that women must have it. Other people think it is bad.

Before Monday, many US states say how women get abortions. If the law ends, these states may stop all abortions. Other states will think about what to do.

Pills are a new option to get an abortion. They are now very common in the US. One medicine company works with the US and foreign doctors and companies. The US government cannot control its work with foreign countries.

Difficult words: the Supreme Court (the most powerful court that starts or ends laws), abortion (a medical job to take a baby out of a woman), foreign (from another country).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
