After the right to abortion was overturned in the USA, the consequences are becoming increasingly noticeable. More and more men are having vasectomies. And women’s rights activists are declaring war on abortion opponents.
After the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the right to abortions, the fight between abortion opponents and women’s rights activists intensified in the USA.
Even in states where abortion remains legal, many doctors and nurses fear future lawsuits when treating patients from Republican states that now ban abortion.
Abortion clinics in democratic US states are currently seeing an enormous influx of women from neighboring, conservative neighboring states. But their Republican lawmakers and prosecutors are already threatening legal action.
Another consequence of the decision of the supreme court concerns the male world. More and more Americans now want to be sterilized. Barely two weeks after Roe vs. Wade was lifted, clinics across much of the country are reporting an unprecedented rush for vasectomies.
Before the Supreme Court decision, an average of three to four men could be sterilized a day at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, a hospital spokesman told NBC News. There are now over 90. The university hospitals in Ohio are also reporting an increase in vasectomies.
Ohio is now one of the US states where abortion is no longer legal. Last week, the case of a 10-year-old made international headlines because the girl had to travel to the neighboring state of Indiana to have an abortion.

College student Grace Wetmore is also from Kansas City, where abortion is now illegal even in cases of rape and incest — as well as in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Wetmore is among a host of American women who are now deleting their period tracking apps.
Because: More and more women are afraid that the electronic data about their periods could one day be used legally against them. After all, radical anti-abortion activists in the American media are already threatening to bring murder charges against women who terminate their pregnancies.

In any case, Google announced last week that it would promptly delete customer data from its online navigation systems after visits to abortion clinics. “If our systems indicate that someone has visited these facilities, we will remove the entries shortly thereafter,” company spokesman Jen Fitzpatrick posted on the Google website.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem also sees no room for waivers. Since last week, South Dakota has also been one of the states in which there are no longer special regulations for abortions, even after rape.
Asked whether this should also apply in the case of a 10-year-old pregnancy, as was recently the case in Ohio, the Republican said on CNN: “Every single life – every single life is precious.”
