A group of lawmakers belonging to French President Emmanuel Macron's party will propose a Bill to inscribe abortion rights into the country's Constitution, according to the statement by two Members of Parliament on June 25.

The move comes after the U. S. Supreme Court overturned a 50-year-old ruling and stripped women's constitutional protections for abortion.
