After the US Supreme Court overturned the right to abortion from 1973, there is a debate in Europe about whether abortion should be part of the fundamental laws. Picture Dall-E/CNE

Should the right to abortion be in the Constitution? Several European countries debate this question. Another view on this issue is the protection of the weakest in this discussion; the unborn. It could be argued that, at least, that is civilised too.
