SCOTUS agrees to take up Mississippi abortion case that will challenge Roe v. Wade

If you’re one of the millions of conservative Christians who have literally prayed for the opportunity to make a dent in the laws that prohibit certain limits on abortion procedures, which were cemented in 1973 in Roe v. Wade, it appears as if those prayers might soon be answered.

That’s because the high court has agreed to take on an abortion-related case out of Mississippi, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which centers around a 2018 law passed in the state which bans abortions after the 15-week mark, with limited exceptions, according to the Washington Examiner

The case, which is scheduled to be heard later this year with a potential conclusion by June 2022, will essentially be a direct challenge to two landmark abortion rulings, including Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

At the crux of the argument is the number of weeks at which “fetal viability” enters the equation in the case of an abortion. The 2018 Mississippi law that prevented abortions after 15 weeks was shot down by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

According to NBC News, in the upcoming SCOTUS case, the state is challenging the current fetal viability standard of 22 weeks, which was set in the 1973 landmark abortion ruling, arguing that medical science has greatly advanced in the past 50 years, suggesting that the viability number be lowered to match what modern medicine is capable of doing with an unborn baby of that age.

“It is well past time for the Court to revisit the wisdom of the viability bright-line rule,” wrote Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch in a brief submitted to the high court.

Interestingly, Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the clinic that originally challenged the 2018 law and succeeded, reportedly urged the Supreme Court to not take up the case.

One reason for that might be the fact that it will be the first major abortion test for a heavily-stacked conservative SCOTUS bench, including former President Donald Trump’s most recent appointee to the court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who once labeled aborted babies as “unborn victims.”

While Roe v. Wade will likely not be struck down completely, it’s not a stretch to presume that there could be a number of landmark updates to the half-century-old ruling — a ruling that is responsible for the deaths of untold millions of unborn lives.
