Monday marks the 246th Independence Day of the United States of America. Two-hundred-and-forty-six years ago, the founding fathers of the US wrote that "All men are created equal". The authorities seems to be following this dictum－literally. The equality they promote is limited to men alone.
On June 24, the US Supreme Court ruled against Roe vs Wade, denying US women the right to an abortion. A 10-year-old girl who got pregnant after being raped in Ohio was denied an abortion as her state does not allow it once fetal cardiac activity is detected, in the sixth week of pregnancy. She was thus travelling to neighboring Indiana, which can prove very risky for her; she might bleed on the way, or suffer some kind of lifelong damage. But, who cares?
