Sky News correspondent Martha Kelner says the US Supreme Court has made the “historic decision” to overturn the landmark Roe v Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.
Pro-choice and pro-life protesters have gathered outside the Supreme Court.
“Having this confirmed now doesn’t make it any less of an earthquake,” Ms. Kelner said.
“Just to put it in context, this dismantles 50 years of legal precedent.”
She said up to 26 of the 50 US states are expected to severely restrict or ban abortion.
