HAVANA, June 25 (EFE) – This Saturday, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez criticized the US Supreme Court’s decision to ban abortion that sparked protests in many cities of the North American country.

The Cuban Foreign Minister considered on Twitter that with this decision, “the political and judicial system of the United States restricts the rights of women, while defending arms producers and dealers.”

Thousands of people took to the streets in dozens of cities in the United States to protest Friday’s ruling that removed federal protections for the right to abortion, which had allowed several states to restrict the right.

Abortion is already illegal in nine states: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah and Wisconsin.

Organizations specialized in reproductive health consider that it is possible to add more countries covered by the decision. EFE
