The United States has been demonstrating this May for the right to abortion . The protests come amid fears that Roe v. Wade, who has guaranteed legal abortion across the country for nearly 50 years, is overturned by the Supreme Court.

If the decision is reversed, the country would return to the situation before 1973, when each state was free to prohibit or authorize abortion. Faced with the impending ruling of the Court, Democrats tried to pass legislation that would maintain the right to abortion in the United States, but the bill was defeated in a Senate vote last week.

In Colombia, in February, the Constitutional Court decriminalized abortion up to 24 weeks of gestation.

In Brazil, abortion is permitted by law in cases where the pregnancy involves a risk to the woman’s life, when the pregnancy is the result of rape and in the case of anencephaly, that is, when the fetus has no brain.

In view of this, the CNN asked the pre-candidates what they think of the current legislation and whether, for them, the cases in which abortion is allowed should decrease or increase.

Lula (EN):

The presidential adviser said that the government plan will be prepared with society and allied parties and delivered on the date set by the TSE.

Jair Bolsonaro (PL):

The president has not responded at the time of publication.

Ciro Gomes (PDT):

The pre-candidate has not responded at the time of publication.

João Doria (PSDB):

The pre-candidate has not responded at the time of publication.

André Janones (Avant):

I am 100% against abortion and I want to make that very clear. As a public policy, there can be no incentive to terminate a pregnancy. From conception to birth, life must be protected. The state, at the federal, state and municipal levels, needs to offer pregnant women all the support necessary for the pregnancy to proceed with medical support and care. It is also the duty of the public power to provide means for our babies to develop with access to public health, quality school and employment.

Simone Tebet (MDB):

I am in favor of maintaining the current law and any change in legislation needs to be widely debated with the whole society. This is a very complex topic and cannot be discussed only every four years, during elections.

Felipe d’Avila (New):

I am in favor of keeping the legislation as it is. I believe it is in line with what most Brazilians think. Regarding the case of the United States, I would like Brazil to have a model of federalism closer to the American one, and for the states to have autonomy to legislate on these issues. Different states may have different policies on these issues.

Luciano Bivar (Union Brazil):

Like every citizen, I have my personal convictions on the subject, but as President of the Republic they cannot override the collective interest, much less the competence of the National Congress, which is responsible for legislation on the subject. It is up to the federal government to resolve the issue from a public health perspective. We cannot continue to allow thousands of women to die performing clandestine abortions. We also need to invest heavily in the education of adolescents to act in the prevention of the problem.
