When Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court, Democrats feared this day would come.
Now they are about to face the moment of truth.
And Amy Coney Barrett has some bad news that will drive every Democrat crazy.
Donald Trump promised to appoint Supreme Court justices that would overturn Roe v. Wade.
After oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health it became clear that Trump nominating Barrett opened up the door to the best chance to end abortion on demand in America.
Both Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh expressed an openness to tossing the wrongly decided Roe v. Wade.
Trump’s nominations of Barrett and Kavanaugh presented for the first time in nearly 50 years a realistic chance to end abortion on demand.
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” show and explained that if the Supreme Court overturned Roe, Mississippi has a “trigger law” on the books which automatically bans abortion if the Supreme Court junks the Roe precedent.
“The state of Mississippi also has a law on the books that would ban all abortions with exceptions only for rape and the life of the mother, that would snap into effect days after Roe is overturned, if Roe is overturned.If that happens, would you start enforcing that in your state,the almost complete ban, regardless of how many weeks of the pregnancy?”host Jake Tapper asked.
Governor Reeves responded that the Supreme Court never had any business legalizing abortion on demand and that the justices overturning Roe would merely return the issue of abortion to the states since the United States Constitution does not include any so-called “right” to an abortion.
“Well, Jake, clearly it is dependent upon how the court rules and exactly what those opinions allow us to do. If, in fact, Roe is overturned — by the way, I believe very strongly, as do many Americans, that the justices on the Supreme Court today could look at the Roe v. Wade case and come to the conclusion that the court just simply got it wrong in 1973,” Governor Reeves replied.
“If you read the Constitution, in my opinion, there is no guaranteed right to an abortion in our U.S. Constitution. Furthermore, not only is there not a guaranteed right, there’s nothing in the Constitution that prohibits individual states from enacting their own laws. After all, that’s really what the Founding Fathers intended.For any issue that is not explicit in the Constitution,it should be left to the states and the state legislatures, and democratic process,” Governor Reeves added.
