The right to abortion is being challenged in the US Supreme Court

The right to abortion is being challenged in the US Supreme Court

Mississippi’s controversial abortion law prohibits abortion after 15 weeks, with very few exceptions. If the court decides that the law will continue to apply, it means that the preliminary ruling “Roe v. Wade,” which for nearly 50 years has guaranteed the right to abortion throughout the United States, has been at least infringed.

“Nothing in the constitutional text, structure, history or tradition supports the right to abortion,” the state says in a letter to the court.

The court could frame itself in a number of different ways, which also affect Roe v. Wade to varying degrees — but if the precedent were to be overturned, it is likely that at least 20 Republican-governed states would tighten their abortion laws.

On Wednesday, you will nine Judges begin hearing oral notes, as abortion opponents hope to put an end to Roe v. Wade. A case decided in 1973 gave women in the United States the right to have an abortion until such time as the fetus was considered viable.

We ask the court to make history. We are asking the US Supreme Court to remove Bro v. Wade and re-create the sanctity of life at the center of the country’s law, former Republican Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday.

The fact that the court agreed to go to the Mississippi case was seen by many as a sign of its willingness to review previous decisions, or at least ask when the fetus was deemed viable, which has so far been estimated to be around 22-24 weeks.

– This is the first time they’ve had a clear majority of judges critical of abortion, says Carol Sanger, of Columbia Law School.

So they have the votes if they choose to use them.

Heather Weininger Fed Dunn Right to Live, a non-profit organization that works against abortion, gives hope.

– I think this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for, she says.

– This is the really important thing when we can go back to the time when we protect life from the moment of conception.

If the right to abortion is repealed or severely curtailed, opponents of abortion owe it a great deal to former President Donald Trump. In the 2016 campaign he promised to nominate judges who would restrict abortion rights, and during his presidency he appointed three conservative justices—Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Connie Barrett—facilitating challenges to abortion rights.

The court’s ruling is expected at the end of June 2022.

The Supreme Court also has to rule on objections to a controversial law in Texas that bans abortions after six weeks, which is before many even know they are pregnant. Arguments for and against this law were presented a month ago, but the court has not yet made its decision.

In this case, the court must rule on purely procedural issues of law relating to the extraordinarily worded law.
