US court to repeal abortion law.

The US Supreme Court could be about to overturn the nationwide legal right to abortion, according to an unprecedented leaked draft of a court document.

In a ninety-eight-page draft opinion, Justice Samuel Alito writes that the nineteen-seventy-three Roe v Wade decision legalising abortion across the US is wrong”.

Report says if the top US court strikes down the ruling, “trigger laws” could instantly make abortion illegal in twenty-two US states.

The justices are not expected to issue a ruling until early July.
