Reading tea leaves is risky business. But that is what many Supreme Court observers are doing in the wake of the oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s health Organization case.
So, what is the case?
Dobbs v. Jackson is a 15-week abortion ban from Mississippi. Dobbs is the most consequential case since Planned Parenthood v. Casey in which the SCOTUS affirmed Roe’s central findings. At the center of the argument is the viability standard. Viability is now believed to be between at 21-24 weeks, but it is constantly changing and, hence, is not a workable framework.
As the justices of the Supreme Court respond to oral arguments for a case that directly challenges Roe v. Wade, they peddled 5 falsehoods about legalized abortion on demand and constitutional jurisprudence that need addressed.
Would overturning a decision that was admittedly wrong threaten the court’s legitimacy, or help to restore it?
Is the fact that human life begins at conception a mere arbitrary religious viewpoint?
On abortion policy, America has more in common with the North Korea and China regimes than with our friends Britain and France. If the phrase “you’re only as good as the company you keep” rings true for nations, perhaps too good, our nation must finally scrap Roe v. Wade.
John 1:5 reads “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
