One Hearing Could Overturn Roe v. Wade For Much Of The South

The Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling in 1973 marked a dismal day for mothers, families, and unborn children across the United States.

With abortion quickly becoming a common practice, pro-life activists began the tireless journey to save the countless lives being senselessly taken.

All the hard is work is paying off, and legislation is being introduced that would make all murder a criminal offense – especially in Mississippi!

It is difficult to get the Supreme Court to hear a case that would possibly compromise the previous Roe v. Wade ruling, but in Mississippi, they did it!

Mississippi is trying to pass legislation that would ban abortions after 15 weeks, according to The New York Times, which could “end up weakening or even overturning Roe v. Wade.”

Caitlin Knowles Myers is an economist at Middlebury College and co-author of research presented by The New York Times on how Mississippi’s legislation could change abortion access in surrounding states.

A post-Roe United States isn’t one in which abortion isn’t legal at all. It’s one in which there’s tremendous inequality in abortion access,” Myers told the Times.

The New York Times calls legislation to fight the slaughter of the unborn “trigger laws.”

With this in mind, the analysis done by NY Times and Myers shows abortion could soon become illegal in 22 states should the Supreme Court rule in favor of life in the Mississippi case.

The analysis looks at factors such as financial position and distance to the nearest abortion clinic.

Depending on the ruling, legal abortion access could effectively end for those living in much of the American South and Midwest, especially those who are poor, according to an analysis updated this week.

The National Bureau of Economic Research found a direct correlation between the distance to drive to an abortion clinic and the amount of abortions performed.

The numbers work out to mean there would be at least 100,000 fewer babies killed in the womb every year if Mississippi passes its 15-week abortion ban, Myers reports.

There is sadly one loophole, however.

As Mommy Underground has previously reported, Biden has made getting abortion pills through the mail extremely easy.

This could cancel out all the good the Mississippi law would do.

The only upside to Biden’s mail-order abortion is, since it was approved because of the pandemic, that once the pandemic finally ends, so will abortion-by-mail.

With the appointment of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the Supreme Court may have enough votes to turn legislation towards supporting our fundamental right to life.

 

We will be keeping a watch on this Mississippi case, expected to begin within the year.

Hopefully, we will see the right to life begin to ripple all throughout this great nation.
