Donald Trump nominated three new Justices to the Supreme Court during his Presidency, the most justices nominated during one term since Richard Nixon.
Trump’s three appointments gave conservatives a 6-3 majority on the Court.
And the Supreme Court just decided to take up a major case that could change America as we know it.
The Supreme Court announced on Monday that it would take up a case next term regarding Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks.
This led several observers to come to the realization that this was actually a plan by the conservative justices to overturn Roe v. Wade without taking up a frontal challenge to the horrendous 1973 decision.
But the Court only took up the question of whether bans on abortion before a baby is viable to survive outside the womb are constitutional.
Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, is sounding the alarm over the Supreme Court’s decision to take up this case, saying that the clock was ticking for abortion on demand in America.
“Alarm bells are ringing loudly about the threat to reproductive rights. The Supreme Court just agreed to review an abortion ban that unquestionably violates nearly 50 years of Supreme Court precedent and is a test case to overturn Roe v. Wade,” Northup’s statement read.
Pro-Life Americans cheered the decision to take up this case.
“States should be allowed to craft laws that are in line with both public opinion on this issue as well as basic human compassion, instead of the extreme policy that Roe imposed,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini declared.
Of course, the Supreme Court chose to sit on this case from September 2020.
Knowing that John Roberts would vote with the Left to strike down any abortion ban, the other four conservative justices waited until Donald Trump appointed Amy Coney Barrett to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat, giving conservatives a majority on the Court.
And while the decision isn’t expected until 2022, regardless of the outcome, Roe v. Wade’s time seems to be coming to an end.
