A shocking decision in the USA has Christian-Talibans in Greece to come out of their holes and claim a stop to abortions, a legal right women in Greece in 1979. Within minutes after the US Supreme Court decision became known several accounts on social media hailed the decision and started posting against abortions with fake diagrams showing full developed embryos been “violently removed” as they claimed.
“What happens in Greece after the US Court decision? It’s time to defend the rights of the unborn children,” one accoutn posted on Twitter.
It was only in Janaury 2020 that the Greek Orthodox “Trumpistas” had filled the metro stations with posters against abortions.
A so-called “fertility congress” promoting the theory of the unborn child had to be cancelled following a public outrage.
US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, holding that there is no longer a federal constitutional right to an abortion.
Roe v. Wade of 1973 was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States generally protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion.

50 years later, the Middle Ages return to the USA, at least in 20 federal states eager to put a break to pregnancy termination.
- Abortion rights will be determined by states, unless Congress acts.
The abortion ban makes no exception for rape, incest or lethal fetal condition.
Biden: “Literally taking America back 150 years”
“The court laid out state laws criminalizing abortion that go back to the 1800s as rationale — the court literally taking America back 150 years. It’s a sad day for the country, in my view.
Biden looked ahead to the elections in November and said voters must vote for representatives who will restore abortion rights.
“Let me be very clear and unambiguous. The only way we can secure a woman’s right to choose … is for Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade as federal law. No executive action from the President can do that,” he said.
“This fall, Roe is on the ballot. Personal freedoms are on the ballot. The right to privacy, liberty, equality — they’re all on the ballot. Until then, I will do all in my power to protect a woman’s right in states where they will face the consequences of today’s decision,” Biden said in his address.
Former President Donald Trump who planted six judges in the Supreme Court to satisfy his Pro Life supporters, said the decision on Friday was “God’s work.”
Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues—attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.

Greece’s main opposition leader, leftwing SYRIZA tweeted:
Supreme Court decision on abortion sends dangerous message affecting the international community.
Rights that should be self-evident are challenged. Our duty is to stand against those bringing us back to the dark ages.
The right of every woman over her own body is non-negotiable.

I read that the Acronym for the US Supreme Court is SCOTUS. It fits well, as Skotos in Greek means “Darkeness”.
