It’s the case the pro-life movement in the United States has been waiting for since January 22, 1973. Finally, a case is headed to the Supreme Court with a direct challenge to the court’s landmark ruling that made killing children in the womb legal across the country regardless of laws passed by state legislatures.
In 2018, the governing body in the State of Mississippi passed a law outlawing abortion after fifteen weeks. The state’s only abortuary performs the procedure up to sixteen weeks. Proponents of killing the next generation in the womb are challenging the law based on a child not being viable outside the womb at that age.
Jackson Women’s Health Organization presented evidence that viability is impossible at 15 weeks, and the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals said that the state “conceded that it had identified no medical evidence that a fetus would be viable at 15 weeks.”
“The state chose to pass a law it knew was unconstitutional to endorse a decades-long campaign, fueled by national interest groups, to ask the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade,” Reeves wrote, according to the New York Times.
Judge Reeves added:
“This court follows the commands of the Supreme Court and the dictates of the United States Constitution, rather than the disingenuous calculations of the Mississippi Legislature.”
How wanting to protect the unborn is “disingenuous” is not explained, but the people who are not vested in supporting women in difficult positions during pregnancy will use such excuses to keep from having to face the reality of what they are advocating.
Why viability should be an issue in this matter has not been explained, either. No matter the reality on viability, a child dies when an abortion is performed.
