More than 180 pro-abortion protesters detained in Washington

A protest rally took place in the center of the American capital - demonstrators demanded the abolition of constitutional guarantees for women's right to abortion. They blocked the street at the supreme court, where a week ago permission was granted to the states to independently regulate issues related to abortion.

On Twitter, the Capitol police specified that 181 people were detained.

It's worth reminding that on June 24, the United States Supreme Court overturned a 1973 ruling under which the country's federal authorities guaranteed the right to terminate a pregnancy.

"The constitution does not give the right to abortion, and the right to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives", - the court said in the ruling.

Now the United States has lost the constitutional right to abortion, and unless Congress takes action, this right will be determined by the states. Nearly half of the states now have or will adopt anti-abortion laws, while the other has adopted strict measures to regulate the procedure.
