The possibility of a massive Supreme Court pro-life decision has the entire nation watching the highest court.
“The Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on Dec. 1 for a highly anticipated case that could dramatically alter abortion access in the United States,” according to Fox News.
“While the court could overturn its landmark decision in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion, observers have suggested the justices could take more complicated paths to allowing states the power to impose greater restrictions on abortion,” notes Sam Dorman.
The case – Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health – is based on Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, and could help craft a new standard for restrictions. This particular law offers the justices an opportunity to not only change abortion jurisprudence, but do so in a way that is substantially different from standards established in Roe or Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, which reaffirmed Roe and set the “undue burden” standard.
Dorman then laid out specific alternatives that the Supreme Court might rule.
