The same High Court that passed down the ‘Right’ for woman decide on their body has now ruled against it….
The vote was 6-3 ….
President Donald Trump’s appointments to High Court made this possible…..
This group of judges do have a political right lean…
(They just ruled that Americans have the ‘Right’ to own guns against state restrictions )
This is NOT the end of abortion in America…
It just changes the battle feild….
The ruling was widely expected after the first round canvasing of the justices was leaked to the media….
Anti-Abortion activists have their day….
Some American’s will take to the streets in protest….
This ruling could be a start of questioning American ‘Rights’ across the the spectrum ….
The Supreme Court on Friday overruled Roe v. Wade, eliminating the constitutional right to abortion after almost 50 years in a decision that will transform American life, reshape the nation’s politics and lead to all but total bans on the procedure in about half of the states.
The ruling will test the legitimacy of the court and vindicate a decades-long Republican project of installing conservative justices prepared to reject the precedent, which had been repeatedly reaffirmed by earlier courts. It will also be one of the signal legacies of President Donald J. Trump, who vowed to name justices who would overrule Roe. All three of his appointees were in the majority in the 6-to-3 ruling.
The decision, which echoed a leaked draft opinion published by Politico in early May, will result in a starkly divided country in which abortion is severely restricted or forbidden in many red states but remains freely available in most blue ones.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. voted with the majority but said he would have taken “a more measured course,” stopping short of overruling Roe outright. The court’s three liberal members dissented.
The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, No. 19-1392, concerned a law enacted in 2018 by the Republican-dominated Mississippi Legislature that banned abortions if “the probable gestational age of the unborn human” was determined to be more than 15 weeks. The statute, a calculated challenge to Roe, included narrow exceptions for medical emergencies or “a severe fetal abnormality.”….
Not that they care…
But this ruling is gonna cost the court American public approval….
Support for abortion among American’s is a majority….
