The US Department of Homeland Security has issued warnings about potential violence linked to a forthcoming ruling on abortion by the US Supreme Court.

At the time of this July edition of ET going to print in mid June, the US Supreme Court has not yet handed down its decision in the Mississippi case that could overturn Roe v. Wade.

The 1973 Roe v. Wade case effectively legalised abortion throughout America. Overturning that decision would mean each individual state could decide their own laws.

It is believed about half of all US states would introduce some sort of limit on abortion, much to the fury of pro-abortion supporters.
