Camilla Tominey, an associate editor of The Daily Telegraph, said she was “enraged” by the recent Supreme Court ruling undermining a women’s right to have an abortion. She questioned how in 2022 the world “can really still be denying women” such a right, before slamming the ruling for “setting women back by not just decades but centuries”.
Ms Tominey said: “I mean I am enraged. Aren’t you enraged by this, be you female or male?
“What in God’s name has gone on here? We’ve had these rights in America for 50 years. The right to have abortion care.
“Now, you are either forced into an abortion because you’ve got pregnant against your will. You’ve been raped or you’ve been the victim of, god forbid, incest.
“Something bad has happened and you do not want to keep the baby as a result.
“Or you have got pregnant and you just don’t want to keep the baby.
“In 2022, in what world can we really still be denying women the right to choose.
“Denying women the right to choose on this frankly is mediaeval in my mind.
“It is setting women’s back by not just decades but centuries.”

Leading Democratic women called on President Joe Biden and Congress on Sunday to protect abortion rights nationwide after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade.
Two Democratic progressives, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, urged Mr Biden to use federal land as a safe haven for abortion in states that ban or severely restrict the practice, after the high court on Friday overturned the landmark 1973 ruling that had recognized women’s constitutional right to abortion.
Ms Ocasio-Cortez said:”Forcing women to carry pregnancies against their will, will kill them.”
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams urged Democrats in Congress to codify Roe v. Wade into law by casting aside the U.S. Senate filibuster rule that enabled Republicans to block such an effort last month.
