Conservatives have been incredibly frustrated with the U.S. Supreme Court over the last few years. Why? Because, even though there is a supposed “conservative majority” on the court now, many of those “conservative” justices have voted in decidedly non-conservative and non-Constitutional ways.
It makes you want to scream.
Now, though, the court has the opportunity to begin to actually do their jobs by taking on controversial cases and striking down anything that is unconstitutional. You know, like murdering children, which is exactly how most conservatives view abortion. Jack Phillips writes,
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to take a major abortion case and would consider Mississippi’s appeal of a lower court ruling that reversed a ban on most abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
The case will grant the Supreme Court the opportunity to reconsider landmark abortion rulings including Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. With Roe v. Wade, in a ruling that was derided by conservatives and religious adherents, the high court in 1973 ruled that a woman had a right to an abortion and reaffirmed it about 20 years later.
In a single-line order, the court wrote, “The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted limited to Question 1 presented by the petition.”
The announcement Monday is being seen as a boon for opponents to abortion, who have long sought to overturn Roe v. Wade, and who are pinning their hopes on a more conservative Supreme Court after Justice Amy Coney Barrett—who some have said would be more receptive to overturning the ruling—was appointed last year.
The Supreme Court will start hearing arguments in the case in October, and it will be the first abortion-related case since Barrett was confirmed.
We’ll have to wait until late this year to see what is going to happen, but millions of Americans are praying that this Supreme Court will actually do their job in their handling of this case.
