Will the Supreme Court end up overturning Roe v. Wade?
With a significant abortion case coming up to address new abortion laws in conservative states, that is what everyone wants to know.
According to Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), the Court will eventually overturn the long-standing precedent.
Roe v. Wade
This fall, the Court will hear arguments on one of the many new abortion laws.
The upcoming case will address an abortion law making abortions illegal after 15 weeks in Mississippi.
It is not quite as extreme as the Texas law, but this will set the measuring stick if the Supreme Court is willing to move the bar on abortion restrictions.
If that law is permitted to stand, the Texas law will surely be next.
While the Court has kicked this issue down the road in the past, Senator Cotton is now predicting that will change.
During a Federalist Society conference, Cotton told attendees that he thinks the Supreme Court will finally decide to overturn Roe v. Wade.
He added, “The only thing standing in the way of justices doing the right thing is the intense social pressure of liberal elites.”
“Now is the time for true friends of the Constitution to speak up.”
I am not sure if this is lip service by Cotton or if he genuinely believes the conservative-dominated Court is ready to make such a bold move.
All the Trump appointees have yet to show a united front, and they will need to do just that because it is almost a given that Justice Roberts will side with the liberals on the bench.
That being said, there is only going to be one chance at this, and if even one of them blinks, Roe v. Wade will stand.
What do you guys think? Is now the time to go after Roe v. Wade, or should the justices kick it down the road just a bit longer until the rhetoric surrounding Trump’s appointees is in the rearview mirror?
