Since 1973, the Supreme Court has refused to overturn Roe v. Wade.
But that could all be about to change.
And this Supreme Court Case could impact Roe v. Wade in a surprising way.
The Supreme Court recently agreed to take up a case that disputes a Mississippi law that bans almost all abortions after 15 weeks.
Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch (R) brought the case before the Supreme Court after the U.S Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit decided that the law placed an “unconstitutional burden” on women’s reproductive rights.
Last term, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 bare majority that Louisiana’s abortion limit was unconstitutional.
Chief Justice John Roberts sided with Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the other liberal justices on the bench to protect so-called “abortion rights” for women, going against his supposed conservative values.
But now that Donald Trump appointed three conservative justices to the Supreme Court and liberal Justice Ginsburg has been replaced with the conservative Amy Coney Barrett, the Supreme Court has a solid 6-3 majority.
This means that it is more likely that the Supreme Court will side with Lynn Fitch and uphold Mississippi’s current abortion laws, setting a new precedent for abortion rulings in the future that could eventually topple Roe v. Wade.
In an article from The Hill, the new 6-3 conservative majority could “throw the future of longstanding abortion protections into question.”
With the Supreme Court prepared to decide the case within the next year, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have suggested they would be in favor of expanding the size of the Supreme Court in order to pack it full of liberal Justices to ensure a permanent liberal majority for decades to come.
This proposed expansion of the Supreme Court goes against years of tradition that has established the Supreme Court as having no more than nine justices.
If the conservatives are able to hold on to their majority in the coming years, it could spell the end of Roe v. Wade’s murderous precedent and weaken the Abortion Lobby if more cases like Mississippi’s get upheld by the conservative majority.
