Abortion rights are expanding around the world while the US is an outlier

Ian Explains: The US Is a Global Outlier on Abortion Rights | GZERO World

Almost 50 years ago, the wife of a Republican US president came out in favor of abortion. Good luck with that happening today.
We now live in a much more divided country — as has been on full display after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and removed the constitutional right to an abortion, Ian Bremmer tells GZERO World.

Interestingly, much of the rest of the world has been moving in the opposite direction. Largely Catholic countries in Latin America and Europe have legalized abortion in recent years, while African nations have rolled back or are rethinking colonial-era abortion bans.


China is ... complicated.

Regardless, the SCOTUS ruling will make waves around the world.
