US Supreme Court abortion ruling ‘a big step backwards’: UK PM

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday called a US Supreme Court ruling ending the federal right to abortion “a big step backwards”.

Johnson, in Kigali for a Commonwealth heads of government meeting, said the court’s rulings have “massive impacts on people’s thinking around the world”.

“I think it’s a big step backwards. I’ve always believed in a woman’s right to choose and I stick to that view, and that’s why the UK has the laws that it does.”
