America: After the ban on abortion in the southern state, thousands of women turned to clinics in Illinois, this is the reason

Washington, AP. There is a state of panic in America after the Supreme Court’s new order on abortion. In fact, the US Supreme Court, overturning the old law on abortion, cleared the way for states to enact laws prohibiting it. After this decision, many states imposed a complete ban on abortion while many states decided to impose a ban after a few weeks or months. Meanwhile, a large crowd was seen for abortion in Illinois, America. Let us know why this is so….

The rush for abortion in Illinois

Many women come for abortions at the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Fairview Heights, 15 miles east of St. Louis, USA. Hundreds of women travel to the southern tip of Illinois every week to get abortions after abortion was banned in the southern US state. After the ban in 11 southern states, women traveled 1,800 miles to clinics here for abortions.

Every day 100 women come for abortion

Dr. Colleen McNicholas of the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Illinois told the AP that before the new abortion law, she performed one or two abortions a day, but now hundreds of women come to her clinic. In fact, there is currently no ban on abortion in the state of Illinois and abortion is legal, so thousands of women come here. Said Dr. Colleen that 58 women had abortions at the clinic the previous day, but the new day is still full of appointments and there are about 100 abortion cases pending.

Many obstacles still come after reaching Illinois

Dr. added. Colleen that once women arrive at a clinic for an abortion in Illinois, one of the most abortion-friendly states in the country, many obstacles await them. He said that in Neon Hazard West, anti-abortion advocates sit outside clinics in the hope that maybe these women will agree not to have an abortion with their words. At the same time, after the decision of the Supreme Court in June, the clinic’s waiting list for abortion increased from two days to almost three weeks.

Clinic staff are also facing problems

The clinic staff also faced many problems. Staff must work 10-hour shifts, even working Saturdays and Sundays at the clinic. There are so many people that despite all this, many women do not get their turn for abortion.

The Supreme Court gave this decision on abortion

We will tell you here that the law prohibiting abortion is implemented in most of the southern states of America, because of this women moved to the northern states. It is noteworthy that in June last year, the US Supreme Court, which overturned Roe vs. Wade’s abortion law, took away the constitutional right of women to have an abortion and gave states the freedom to make their own laws about denying it. After this many states banned abortion.
