The Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Life has praised the US Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v Wade which protected abortion rights for women.
They also called that legislation ensures that those giving birth are given the support needed to keep and care for their children.
In a statement released on Twitter, the Catholic organization said "The fact that a large country with a long democratic tradition has changed its position on this issue also challenges the whole world."

They also called for sexual education, accessible healthcare, and support for "mothers, couples, and the unborn child that involve the whole community, encouraging the possibility for mothers in difficulty to carry on with the pregnancy."
Pope Francis has previously compared abortion to the atrocities of Nazi Germany, to hiring "a hitman to resolve a problem," and has said it is akin to "throwing life away."
President Joe Biden, who is a Catholic, has condemned the Supreme Court's ruling and has called for the 1973 ruling to be reinstated.
"Let me be very clear and unambiguous: The only way we can secure a women's right to choose, the balance that existed, is for Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade as federal law," the President said. "No executive action from the president can do that."
