Supreme Court agrees to hear major Mississippi abortion case

Although Donald Trump is no longer in the White House, his appointments of three conservative jurists to the U.S. Supreme Court will have a lasting impact on the nation. This week, the high court made headlines after it agreed to hear a major case regarding abortion.

On Monday, the court announced that it will hear a challenge to a Mississippi law that protects the unborn from abortion after 15 weeks gestation, a ban that has been blocked by lower courts as a violation of Supreme Court precedent, PJ Media reported

This case will present the first opportunity for Trump-appointee, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, to address the issue of abortion since she was confirmed last fall.

Justice Barrett

A devout Catholic and mother of seven, Barrett was nominated in September 2020 following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from complications related to pancreatic cancer.

During Barrett’s 2017 nomination hearing for federal court, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) seemingly attacked Barrett’s Christian faith, telling the judge that “the dogma lives loudly within you.

The left was furious over Trump’s decision to make the appointment, arguing it shouldn’t be permitted in an election year.”

The court ruled 29 years ago in Planned Parenthood of Eastern Pennsylvania v. Casey that states were generally prohibited from restricting abortion until after viability.

While the Supreme Court is unlikely to rule that life begins at conception, it may revise the standard regarding when states can move to protect life.

Law protects women and babies

Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal group that is among those supporting Mississippi, released a statement praising the abortion law.

“Every human life is valuable, and Mississippi’s law is a commonsense step toward protecting unborn children and their mothers from the harms of late-term abortion,” said ADF senior counsel Denise Harle.

She continued, “The law protects the life of a baby who can already move around and kick in her mom’s womb — a child who has a heartbeat, can taste what her mom eats, and can experience pain.”

“And the law also protects women, since late-term abortions grow increasingly dangerous to the mother’s health,” Harle added. “Women and their children both deserve real health care; that’s why we’re glad the Supreme Court has decided to take up this matter.”
