The controversial United States federal protection over Abortion could end in July, as leaks from the US Supreme Court revealed it's plans to overturn Roe v. Wade.
1973 Supreme Court battle between Jane Roe and Henry Wade established
the grounds of federal protection over women getting Abortions, the
act of removing a fetus before it is born.
Politicians, and Communities against the ruling formed various blocs
to try and get Roe V Wade overturned, collectively known as the
groups have staged protests outside Abortion Clinics and Planned
Parenthood Centres, voting against future and striking down existing
Abortion laws as State Governors, and overturning it by Executive
Order after becoming President.
unlike Executive Orders which can be struck down by the next
president, Supreme Court rulings can't be overturned so easily and
can take decades to do so.
1896 Supreme Court ruling of Plessy v. Ferguson, which made
Segregation legal in the United States, wasn't overturned until 1965
but many states of the former Confederate States of America
(1860-1865) still utilized Jim Crow Laws well into the 1970's and
the leaks came out saying that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe
v. Wade, Democrats were furious, Republicans were pleased, Pro-Life
groups cheered, and Pro-Choice groups staged a protest Monday
afternoon outside the Supreme Court.
speakers inside the US House of Representatives and US Senate, Nancy
Pelosi and Chuck Schumer respectively, gave a joint statement
yesterday stating: “If this leaked report has any validation, then
the Supreme Court is poised to inflict the greatest restriction of
rights in the past 50 years”.
Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney, and former president Donald Trump all issued
statements congratulating the Supreme Court stating: “We thank the
Supreme Court for coming to this conclusion to overturn the federal
protection of these child murderers and baby killers, and for
protecting the lives of innocent babies and future Americans alike”.
US president Joe Biden and the US Supreme Court have yet to comment
on the leaks.
