Meghan pledges to take on US Supreme Court over Roe v Wade abortion ruling

She added: “These issues are systemic, interconnected, and preventable. Women of color and especially black women are most impacted by these decisions because most of us don’t have the same access to healthcare, economic opportunity, mental health resources…the list goes on. It’s difficult to overstate what this decision is going to do to these communities.”

Asked about her own experiences of reproductive health and the stigma surrounding abortion, the Duchess said it had reiterated how “fortunate” she felt to have her children, having previously tried to “normalise” the conversation about her own miscarriage.

“Nobody should be forced to make a decision they do not want to make, or is unsafe, or puts their own life in jeopardy,” she said.

“Frankly, whether it’s a woman being put in an unthinkable situation, a woman not ready to start a family, or even a couple who deserve to plan their family in a way that makes the most sense for them, it’s about having a choice. ”

She also called on men to be “vocal” about abortion, saying she had spoken “a lot” to Prince Harry about it over the “past few days”.

“This moment requires unity—really listening to people, understanding the Constitution was written at a time when women were second-class citizens,” she said. “We’re not.”

The full interview is published online in Vogue magazine.
