Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts predicted during an interview with Breitbart News Saturday that Roe v. Wade would be overturned.
The shock prediction came as the Supreme Court is weighing whether to uphold a 15-week abortion ban in Mississippi. If they rule in favor of the ban, it will set off a domino effect that will lead to the dissolution of Roe v. Wade.
Roberts told Breitbart News that, “In the depths of the aftermath of the Roe decision in 1973, what happened, I would say provided by Providence, is the conservative movement grew up. I thought gosh, the second half-century of the Heritage Foundation of the conservative movement is going to be defined by a post-Roe world. In other words, I’m convinced Roe v. Wade is going to be overturned.”
The Supreme Court seems likely to side with Mississippi as the Supreme Court is majority conservative, and Democrats seem to know it’s a strong possibility.
Oral arguments for Dobbs v. JacksonWomen’ss Health Organization began this past week, and all eyes will be on the Supreme Court.
If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it will represent the greatest victory in conservative history.
