Repeal ruling that allows abortion throughout the US / Lasso denounces attempted coup in Ecuador

In a decision in which the conservative majority was clear, the Supreme Court of the United States struck down the 1973 ruling that allowed abortion throughout the country. Demonstrations of support and rejection of the measure were immediately registered, through which the decision to allow abortion or not is now rooted in the legislatures of each state of the Union. The majority of six judges based their decision on the fact that abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution or in legal jurisprudence, while the liberal dissidence of three judges affirmed that with this the Court acts in a manner inconsistent with what it ruled in 1973 and reaffirmed in 1992. In Ecuador, President Guillermo Lasso denounced that the forces that promote the demonstrations that have shaken the country for almost two weeks are seeking to remove him from power through a coup d’état behind which the forces that support to former President Rafael Correa. In Peru, the government is accused of trying to restrict freedom of information by promoting a project that does not allow reporting on ongoing judicial investigations until the oral trial takes place. And 18 African migrants died trying to enter the Spanish enclave of Melilla, generating a stampede that trampled fatalities.

  • The US Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. In a historic decision by six votes against three, the Supreme Court of the United States annulled the 1973 ruling that allowed abortions throughout the country, generating immediate reactions between supporters and opponents of abortion, an issue that has divided American public opinion for 50 years. The conservative majority pointed out that “Roe was notoriously wrong from the beginning” and affirmed that the issue of abortion – which is not mentioned in the US Constitution – must be resolved at the political level by each state through its democratic processes. The ruling, therefore, does not annul the possibility of abortion, but instead gives each state legislature the power to legislate for or against abortion.
  • Petro consolidates legislative majorities in Congress. At the same time that the delegations of President Iván Duque and the elected president, Gustavo Petro, advance in what has been called the “joint” between the outgoing administration and the incoming one, Petro consolidated the majorities in Congress that will allow him to carry out his transformation program. With the support of the Liberals, the new Head of State will have 54 senators (out of a total of 108), while in the Chamber of Deputies the Liberal support adds 33 supports to the 30 that Petro’s Historical Pact has, to the that other related parties must be added, such as the Green Alliance and other sectors.

  • Threat to freedom of expression in Peru. In the midst of the accusations involving President Pedro Castillo, the Peruvian government seeks to curb free access to information by promoting a project that proposes to penalize the dissemination of confidential information from criminal investigations, on the grounds that, according to the Executive, a criminal investigation ceases to be reserved only when it passes to the oral trial. The press unions and various specialists question the proposal, because according to them, it violates freedom of information.

  • At least 18 dead in an attempt to enter Melilla. The tragedy was triggered when a mob of some 500 African migrants tried to jump over the fence to enter the Spanish enclave of Melilla. The human avalanche ran over those who were trapped, generating the tragedy, according to the Moroccan police. There are 63 injured migrants and 140 Moroccan policemen with injuries, five of them serious.

  • New Tory rebellion against Boris Johnson. The British prime minister, who has just passed a motion to remove him from power, is now facing a new attempt by his Conservative Party dissident group to force a motion that will remove his confidence and force him to resign. The rebels are trying to gain control of a party committee created in 1922, which is the one that defines when a leader must submit to a vote of no confidence, which would allow them to change the statutes to allow a new vote. Under the current rule, after defeating the motion that tried to bring him down, Johnson has immunity for one year.

  • Inflation hits the countries of the European Union. The sustained rise in prices is affecting the 27 members of the EU, and could even threaten the unity of the group. High inflation is accompanied by a rise in interest rates with the intention of curbing it, but this measure also puts a brake on investment and economic growth. All this creates problems for the most indebted countries and risks fragmenting the monetary union. The different governments are trying to counteract the effects of the situation with emergency social aid, reduction of VAT and fuel taxes.
