It was, by any standards, a startling development. After almost 50 years, the US Supreme Court appeared to end the consitutional right of American women to have an abortion.

The court chose not to strike down a Texas law that effectively banned abortions after six weeks, even in the case of rape or incest.

President Joe Biden called it an assault on women's rights and vowed to find a way to defeat it.
