The Supreme Court has decided to rule on abortion laws in the state of Mississippi, which could have major consequences for unborn children and their families across the state.
The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday that it will decide if state laws banning most abortions are unconstitutional, in a major case challenging new Mississippi abortion restrictions.
The petition filed at the Court asks “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional” in the U.S., posing the most significant challenge in decades to the right to abortion created by the Supreme Court in its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.Breitbart News
If the Court rules the laws are unconstitutional, many more abortions will become legal.
If they don’t, then Mississippi will remain a pro-life state.
This really will be a monumental decision.
The Supreme Court relisted this petition for conference more than 20 times. The Court wrestled since October on if it should take this case, and there were lesser questions they could have tackled, but in the end, they decided to take up the broadest version of the issue.
From the petition:
Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act brings into sharp focus the conflict between this Court’s suggestion that states cannot prohibit pre-viability abortions, Roe v. Wade…and the Court’s repeated admonition that states have legitimate interests “from the outset of the pregnancy in protecting the health of the mother and the life of the fetus which may become a child.”Breitbart News
Unfortunately, it looks like we’ll be waiting a while to hear the answer.
Let’s hope they make the right decision for American families, and allow Mississippi to keep its laws protecting unborn children.
