SCOTUS to hear Mississippi abortion law case, could rock the foundation of Roe v. Wade

Over the coming week, there is a chance — the first chance in some time — that the U.S. Supreme Court could be on the path to being convinced that the landmark 1973 abortion case Roe v. Wade should be modified or perhaps even totally reversed.

According to the Washington Examiner, the high court will begin hearing arguments in what will likely become another landmark decision involving a challenge to Mississippi’s 2018 Gestational Age Act, a state law that bans abortions after the 15-week mark of pregnancy, instead of the 24-week standard set in the 1973 decision.

Proponents of the Mississippi law argue that thanks to medical science progression since the 1973 abortion ruling, it has been proven that 15 weeks is the new gestational age of “viability,” as unborn children have survived outside of the womb at that age — something that wasn’t likely nearly 50 years ago.

It’s important to note that the age of viability doesn’t equate to “humanity,” rather, it’s an updated age at which an unborn child can survive outside of its mother’s womb with the help of medical technology.

“If you study the history of Roe v. Wade … you will see how arbitrary it was that viability … was introduced … It was inserted rather superficially and arbitrarily … the Supreme Court ignored the science involved and most certainly the morality,” Frank Pavone of Priests for Life told the Washington Examiner.

Not only will this the first real challenge to Roe, but it couldn’t have come at a better time, as the SCOTUS bench is stacked with a 6-3 conservative majority, with three of the sitting justices chosen by former President Donald Trump, a staunchly anti-abortion individual.

“If the Mississippi law is found constitutional, then the holding of Roe collapses. It will take its deserved place in the ash heaps of history along with Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson, cases that upheld slavery and institutional segregation,” Examiner writer Thomas Glessner wrote.

According to the Associated Press, arguments in the case will likely unfold in the fall of 2021, with court experts expecting a ruling around the Spring of 2022, which interestingly will also fall in the time frame of politicians waging campaign battles for the 2022 midterm elections.

Only time will tell how the case ends up, but with several pro-life SCOTUS justices on the bench, there’s a strong chance that great strides will soon be made in the effort to protect the sanctity of human life.

  1. Dr. Fauci wants masts because he is a criminal, and criminals use masks to hide who they are. This is just like the criminals in congress ( Dems and Rhinos ). They think that we wont know who they are, That is why they have to take a voice vote on all issues. It is called transparency, so the people know if their reps. are doing, what they want them to. Since Dems typically do not do, what the people in their districts want they are required to wear a mask, because they are criminals. You ask how do I get to that point. It is simple, They are paid to represent the people in their district, if they are not then they are getting paid for not doing their jobs, that ………….is…………… called…………. fraud, which is a criminal offence. So Pelosi needs to put her mask on.

  2. You can tell Biden, that he can stop wasting his time on gun control. The people are voting on this issue right now, in gun shops across the country, and they are voting with their TRIGGER FINGER. The people are going to keep their guns, even if they have to get rid of Biden. The people want to add to the Second Amendment to prevent any and all agencies from trying to alter or remove the Second Amendment. Or to use other so called laws to circumvent any and all of the laws in the Bill of Rights.
