  Liberals attack Supreme Court after it puts off ruling in Texas abortion case The Supreme Court didn't rule on a procedural issue in the Texas abortion law case Monday, but it did decide a water rights dispute between Tennessee and Mississippi. "John Roberts playing ‘haha made you look’ when it comes to abortion rights is about all you need to know about this Supreme Court. #ExpandTheCourt," Demand Justice Chief Counsel Christopher Kang tweeted.

The Supreme Court of the United States examines, on Wednesday, December 1, a statement of the state of Mississippi on a law that aims to limit access to the voluntary interruption of pregnancy (IVG). The state of the southern United States simply calls for the highest jurisdiction of the country to cancel its case-law which guarantees the right to abortion.

for anti-abortion activists, it is already a victory. The mere fact that the Supreme Court agrees to consider a request that clearly resets the right to IVG is a novelty. So far, the court had always said no. But now, it is composed of a majority of conservative or even ultra-conservative judges, the last three named by Donald Trump.

Scotus preview for big abortion rights case from Mississippi to be argued next week

  Scotus preview for big abortion rights case from Mississippi to be argued next week The future of abortion rights in the U.S. is now before the Supreme Court, where the 6-3 conservative majority may be poised to strike down or severely limit the impact of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision legalizing the controversial procedure. An upcoming case from Mississippi represents arguably the court's most dramatic opportunity to overturn its own precedent since Brown v. Board of Education. That may be because few social issues draw as much personal and political passion as the constitutional right to abortion, with the nationwide legal fights over its access dating back nearly 50 years.

Breaking the ROE stop against Wade

The Mississipi State Query, in the southern United States simply aims to break the ROE judgment against Wade of the same Supreme Court, which since 1973 has been interrupted. pregnancy volunteer a constitutional right. Otherwise, the Mississippi requests that more latitude be left to the states in the supervision of this right and within the time allowed to practice abortion.

According to the current legislation, it is 22 to 24 weeks after the beginning of pregnancy, that is, the beginning of the viability of a fetus. The law presented by the Mississippi in 2018, and which has been blocked so far, proposes 15 weeks.

Equivalent

projects of other southern states and Midwest have equivalent or even more stringent projects, even going to a total prohibition, ready to be immediately out of the boxes in the event that the Court would pronounce in this direction. Its decision planned by June 2022. According to the powerful organization of family planning, Planned Parenthood, 28 states would not fail to do, and 36 million women of childbearing age would be deprived of access to pregnancy interruptions.

The defenders of women's right to abort, "worried like never", tighten ranks. Medical, feminist or civil rights associations have written to the Court to ask him to invalidate the Mississippi law, as well as hundreds of democratic elected officials or 500 high-level athletes, including the Megan rapinoe footballer. All ensure that alterer, if only a little, the current jurisprudence, will make all the building fall.

The Supreme Court should make its decision next spring.

America Is One Gut Punch Away From Throwing in the Towel on Democracy .
I remember the political gut punches. They were moments that I could not believe were happening in America. They ran contrary to the idea of America that I had been raised with. But they also defied logic and reason. While America had been rocked by riots and assassinations when I was a kid, the first big political development in America that shocked me was the election of Ronald Reagan. He was a boob, a Hollywood actor, not even a very good one.
