As many as 368 women lawyers and legal professionals, many of them partners at the USA’s top-10 law firms and counsel to Fortune 100 companies, filed an ‘amicus brief’ in the country’s top court narrating the circumstances behind their decisions to terminate their pregnancies and the effects that the abortions had on their lives.    

The women said they were compelled to tell the nation’s highest court their stories in their bid to end the restrictions placed by way of laws on women’s right to make their own reproductive choices.  

The Supreme Court had on December 5 agreed to hear a restrictive abortion law in the state of Louisiana. The country is affected by controversial abortion-related laws passed due to conservative politicians and pro-life lobbying groups. 

Hundreds of top women lawyers in US share their abortion stories with the country’s Supreme Court in ‘amicus brief’ to press for revocation of law restricting women’s reproductive rights
