The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) criticized the US Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe vs Wade saying the decision to no longer recognize a constitution right to abortion, was a setback that would ultimately cost lives.

WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus said during a media briefing that decades of scientific data prove that access to safe and legal abortion save lives.

The WHO Head said the evidence is irrefutable and restriction drives women and girls toward unsafe abortions resulting in complications even death.

He said safe abortion should be understood as health care// and warned that limiting its access would disproportionately hit women from the poorest and most marginalized communities.
