British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday called the US Supreme Court’s decision to end the federal right to abortion “a big step back”.

Johnson, for the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Kigali, said the court’s decisions “have a huge impact on the thinking of people around the world”.

“I think it’s a big step backwards. I’ve always believed in a woman’s right to choose and I hold to that point of view, and that’s why the UK has laws about what she does.”
