Many Canadians have recently been in the U.S. Supreme Court. I have a deep interest. The country's abortion law decides to defeat the Roe v. Wade case.

As explained in The Hill, "Friday's Supreme Court defeated the Roe v. Wade case, giving the constitutional right to abortion nearly 50 years ago. Eliminates and imposes significant restrictions on state authorities, or bans procedures. "

From both social and traditional media, many people, perhaps in Canada, courts It is clear that he thinks he has had an abortion.

Not so. Currently, all states are free to create their own laws on abortion.

NBC's Jon Decker is a reporter and the only lawyer in White House Press Corps. He told me on Monday, "The Supreme Court's ruling on Friday is that there is no federal right to abortion as stipulated in the Constitution, but the court said that the abortion procedure was allowed. It was up to the individual states of the United States to decide whether or not, which means that all 50 states have different rules and laws regarding the procedure for obtaining an abortion.

Canadians are accustomed to the many powers invested in leaders and higher levels of government. The leaders of each of Canada's major political parties exert tremendous power over their political parties in the federal and state affairs. Individual members are expected to make a difference.

The prime minister has great power in his state. As an example, one of the first things that former Toronto city council member Doug Ford, the Premier of Ontario, did when he was first elected was to cut the number of councilors in the Toronto council in half.

It is a great force for urban problems.

As a result, Canadians may not be familiar with the decentralization of power and the dedication of many Americans to the purposes of Article 10 of the Constitutional Amendment.

Lists the powers granted to the federal government, not many. The tenth amendment states: Jurisdiction and rights were not explicitly delegated to the United States by this coalition, but were gathered in Parliament.

Decker said, "Well, that's right. We have a federal approach to government and there are many issues that are decided at the local level. The Supreme Court The decision is that looking at the US Constitution, there is no constitutional right to abortion, which is why they said we did not completely ban abortion. You look at the state. The decision was no more an abortion decision than a constitutional decision. "

Whether the state likes it or not, they will have to deal with the problem now.

The law is already in force and some are ready.

Law and politics are two different things. Many will stick to their heartfelt belief that the decision was wrong, regardless of legal or constitutional debate.

Regarding the states and their paths, Decker tells us to look at the maps of the "Red States" (Republicans) and the "Blue States" (Democrats) to get a pretty clear idea of ​​what will happen. .. Legalize abortion.

The state becomes political. I think the Supreme Court has made a good constitutional decision.
