President Emmanuel Macron’s party will seek to enshrine the right to abortion in the French Constitution after several US states imposed an immediate ban following Friday’s Supreme Court’s ruling. 

The party, which lost its outright majority in France’s National Assembly a week ago, is proposing a draft bill as soon as today, Aurore Berge, party head in the Assembly, said on France Inter radio Saturday.
