As women worldwide face the greatest threat to our reproductive rights for 40 years, we look at the countries where abortion is already illegal

There are many countries where abortion is illegal. Donald Trump makes clear his intention to overturn Roe V. Wade – the landmark Supreme Court case that established access to abortion as a constitutional right for US women for over 40 years. If this happens, women in states such as Oklahoma, Texas, Michigan, Indiana and South Carolina (amongst others) are under high risk of losing their reproductive altogether. For thousands of women worldwide – who currently have no rights over their own bodies when it comes to reproductive health – this has been a reality for far too long.
