Telefono Rosa chief ‘indignant’ at Roe v Wade cancellation

(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 24 – The head of Italian domestic abuse action group Telefono Rosa told ANSA Friday she was indignant at the US Supreme Court's ruling overturning the historic 1973 Roe V Wade legalization of abortion in the US, saying that the controversial sentence by the conservative-dominated court will fuel anti-abortion propaganda in Italy too.
"There is a systematic attack on women's independence, it's inconceivable to begin again battles that were won 40 years ago," said Gabriella Carnieri.
"The mentality has got worse. They are calling into question all our freedoms, I'm indignant. There will be those who will ride this sentence in Italy, I'm certain that anti-abortion propaganda will start here too".
Writer and feminist Dacia Maraini told ANSA: "It is a great regression on civil rights. I hope that in Italy we won't be so stupid as to follow what is happening in America. I don't think it likely to happen". (ANSA).
