France is on track to become the world’s first nation to explicitly enshrine abortion rights into its constitution, pending a final vote from lawmakers on Monday evening, amid a rollback in reproductive rights in the U.S. and elsewhere. [time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”] Members of Parliament have been summoned to Paris by President Emmanuel Macron for a special meeting at the Palace of Versailles, where the bill to protect abortion rights will need three fifths of the vote to pass. The historic bill—which is widely expected to pass—protects women seeking abortions under Article 34 of France’s 1958 constitution.
