Abortion rights have long been a thorny issue, and Biden's latest move is a massive step in the right direction. But not everyone is happy about it ...
Women all over the world have long fought for the right over their own bodies.

The Roe V. Wade legal case saved many women's lives.
via: GettyThe 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case affirmed that a woman's access to safe and legal abortion is a constitutional human right.
Though the abortion law is more at risk than ever before.
via: GettyThe right to safe and legal abortion has been the law of the land for more than forty-five years and is a part of the fabric of this country. Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court dealt a huge blow to our right to access safe, legal abortion, however. Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump, who had previously made a clear promise to nominate judges who would "automatically" overturn Roe v. Wade.
And there are still people who don't think women deserve the right to a safe abortion.

They aren't known for their subtlety.

They've made some pretty outlandish claims.

They are known for their quite dramatic views.

What people seemingly don't understand is that the opposite of pro-life isn't abortion...

But this week has marked a huge victory for women's rights...
As Biden has made a landmark decision.
The 2-dose regimen of hormone blocker misoprostol and mifepristone will be made available by post in all states.
"We are pleased to see mifepristone regulated on the basis of the scientific evidence during the pandemic, rather than political bias against comprehensive reproductive health care," the ACOG said in a statement.
This will allow women all over the USA to access early abortion.
