In the middle of the path towards the law onIvg a San Marinothe comment by Marina Corsi of the Welcome of Life Association and by Vanessa Muratori of the Union of San Marino Women on the abolition of the sentences on the legalization of abortion by the American Supreme Court.
The President of the Hospitality of Life, Marina Corsi, reads the decision of the Court in terms strictly foreseen: “Evidently – he says – for 50 years in the United States a sentence had been used which had led to the deduction that the right to abortion was enshrined in the American Constitution. The judges who spoke yesterday gave a correct interpretation, reporting to the reality of the facts that abortion is not a constitutional right, it is not present in some of the amendments to the American constitution. When we want to have a practice accepted and pass it as a right, as in the case of abortion, there is a stretch. Not only does the sentence that brought a practice such as abortion back to the legal and social reality, but also makes us reflect the ferment that was already present overseas, in one of the most advanced countries “. A decision of the Supreme Court that represents an important starting point for Marina Corsi to reflect on, also in the light – she says – of the European position: “Europe has even been trying for some years to legislate so that abortion is part of the rights of the person”.
Vanessa Muratori of the Union of San Marino Women is criticized: “It looks like the backlash of the Trump administration, with the appointment of three ultraconservative judges, shifting their balance. Already several states in the central south already have anti-abortion laws that will come into force in the next few days. From Texas – with abortion only until the sixth week, when women hardly notice they are pregnant – or to Oklahoma, where the abortion woman is punished with higher sentences than those foreseen for rape. This is to understand the regression that this sentence will bring. The consequences will suffer the most vulnerable women will resort to voluntary clandestine interruption, the one that really does people. This thing should not enter the San Marino debate, we are not a theocracy, parties should not answer to the clergy. There population expressed itself very clearly with the referendum to the 77%. Do not miss the opportunity to make a good law, which legalizes abortion and above all prevents it in a civil way, with education. conscious sexuality, with birth planning services, facilitating motherhood, considering that today motherhood is the main obstacle to working life. This is intolerable for us ”.
