Wednesday, December 1, 2021, the Supreme Court heard arguments on “the most significant challenge in decades to Roe vs. Wade” in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
From Live Action:
Roe v. Wade made abortion legal throughout every U.S. state, prohibiting states from restricting abortion before the arbitrary point of “viability,” which abortionists have admitted is ever-changing based on their personal opinions, but is believed to fall around week 24 (LMP) of pregnancy.
Babies born as young as 21 weeks (19 weeks post-fertilization) have survived outside the womb. The question the Supreme Court will likely answer in this case is, “Under the Constitution, may a State prohibit elective abortions before viability?”
Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is around Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, limiting abortion after 15 weeks.
Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) explains it further here:
“It’s very important that we are clear about what overturning Roe would mean for our country. Overturning Roe will not, will not, ban abortion nationwide, as many on the Left like to claim in an attempt to mislead Americans. Instead, it would return the power to state and federal lawmakers, allowing them to protect the most vulnerable and act on behalf of the people they are elected to represent.”
