Mia Plecic slammed for comparing vaccine mandates to the U.S. Supreme Court’s anti-abortion ruling 

Influencer Mia Plecic has sparked outrage by comparing Australia’s vaccination mandates to the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The court’s ruling ends the constitutional right to abortion across America, meaning individual states can now decide whether abortion should be legal.

Commenting on Saturday’s landmark decision, Ms Plecic, 30, wrote on Instagram: “Why is it okay to be pro-choice about one human right but not another?”

Many people who oppose Covid vaccine mandates call themselves “pro-choice,” borrowing the popular slogan used for decades by legal abortion advocates.

However, the use of the term in the context of vaccines is highly controversial, with women’s rights activists saying the two issues are incomparable.

The Supreme Court ended the constitutional protections for abortion that have been in effect for nearly 50 years by overturning the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

Power has now been returned to individual states to decide whether or not to allow the proceedings.

Women with unwanted pregnancies in America will now face the choice of traveling to another state where the procedure will remain legal and available, buying abortion pills online, or having a potentially dangerous illegal abortion.
