The U.S. Supreme Court might end up issuing a shocking decision that could affect the landmark Roe v. Wade case.
According to Breitbart News, “Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch filed her opening brief with the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday defending the constitutionality of her state’s 15-week abortion ban.”
The outlet called it “the most significant challenge since 1992.”
According to Breitbart, the Mississippi state official brief stated, in part:
Under the Constitution, may a State prohibit elective abortions before viability? Yes. Why? Because nothing in constitutional text, structure, history, or tradition supports a right to abortion. A prohibition on elective abortions is therefore constitutional if it satisfies the rational basis review that applies to all laws.
This case is made hard only because Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992), hold that the Constitution protects a right to abortion.
