Thousands of people gathered this Friday (21/1) for the annual protest against abortion. It is hoped that this year the Conservative majority Supreme Court will overturn the historic ruling that legalized abortion 50 years ago in the United States.
“We hope and pray that this year 2022 will bring about a historic change in life,” said Jean Mancini, president of the March for Life organization.
“We know this year is the beginning of the end of abortion in the United States,” lamented Joseph Scordado, 20, of Wisconsin, disguised as a medieval warrior, carrying a giant cross.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Dec. 1 on the Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks of gestation, which was ruled out by Tobs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
The Conservative faction of the court, which includes three judges appointed by former President Donald Trump, appears poised to uphold the law, and has gone even further. Wade, 1973 case legalizing abortion in the country.
If Ro V. Wade was ousted, and every 50 states could enact their own abortion laws.
Laws strictly controlling abortion have already been passed in several Republican-led states, but have been precisely attacked for violating the Row V rule. Wade guarantees a woman’s right to have an abortion, usually between 22 and 24 weeks’ gestation, until the fetus is possible outside the womb.
Prior to the Mississippi trial, the Supreme Court had repeatedly denied Texas legislation prohibiting abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, before most women knew they were pregnant.
The court is expected to release its verdict in the Mississippi case in June.
Polls indicate that most Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, but a section of the population, especially religious rights, has never accepted Rowe. Wade is constantly campaigning to bring her down.
