Big things are happening in the country, despite Joe Biden’s best efforts.
Despite what Democrats try to do, there is one Trump victory they can’t erase, his Supreme Court.
The court enjoys a 6-3 conservative majority. And it’s set to hear a major case that will have a tremendous impact on the country.
And red state Mississippi is not wasting this chance. They are calling on the court to overturn a historic, landmark decision.
From Daily Wire:
Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday to defend “the right of the people to pass laws that protect life and women’s health,” urging the court to overturn Roe v. Wade…
“The conclusion that abortion is a constitutional right has no basis in text, structure, history, or tradition.”
Why It’s Important:
The Supreme Court will soon hear a case regarding a pro-life law out of Mississippi. Leftists have challenged the law, demanding the court reject it.
But the state’s AG is going even further than just defending this law. She is calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
This 1973 court decision ruled it was unconstitutional for the government to prevent a woman from having an abortion.
However, Fitch argues that the ruling has “no basis” in the text of the Constitution, nor is it supported in our “history or tradition.”
Fitch is also arguing that the outdated ruling restricts the states’ right to decide on such a crucial issue.
The state of Mississippi wants Trump’s Supreme Court to decide if Roe v. Wade should stand. If it does overturn this ruling, it means the federal government no longer considers abortion legal.
What could this mean for America? Joe Biden, while on the campaign trail, vowed to pass legislation to legalize the practice. That’s a long shot, to say the least.
Most likely, it would fall to the states. We could be looking at a situation where red states have the freedom to outlaw this practice entirely.
And that’s what some of them are already planning. Texas just signed into law a bill that will outlaw the practice entirely.
Other states will be sure to follow.
- Mississippi AG is calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
- The state argues the decision has no basis in our text or history.
- Such a move would give states the power to pass their own pro-life laws.
