The Supreme Court finally crossed a line no one thought was possible.
It has massive implications for the future of American politics.
The Supreme Court is facing one question that could decide Donald Trump’s future.
Conservatives on the Supreme Court finally agreed to take up the most significant challenge in a generation to the 1973 Roe V. Wade decision.
Pro-abortion activists were furious believing that the Supreme Court intended to curtail the abortion on demand status quo that dominated America since 1973.
“Never forget that [Senate Minority Leader Mitch] McConnell and others mocked us and gaslit us through the Kavanaugh fight for claiming that legal abortion was in jeopardy,” National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League President Ilyse Hogue posted on social media. “They knew. They lied. We knew. We fought. And we’re so far from done fighting.
“Whether the Court rules in favor of MS or not, they’re normalizing narrowing the aperture, placing more people who need abortion further from service,” Hogue added. “They have always understood, sometimes better than people who support Roe, that a right without access is not a right at all.”
“Reproductive rights are in danger,” the Women’s March official Twitter account wrote. “We can’t let the GOP roll back our rights. It’s time to codify Roe v. Wade.”
Pro-life activists were encouraged, but wary after having been burned so many times in the past.
In the Mississippi case—where state law banned abortions after 15 weeks—the Court took up one question about if all restrictions on abortion prior to the baby being viable outside the womb were unconstitutional.
At the same time, pro-life activists warned that the entire conservative legal movement would collapse with defeat in this case.
“That the Supreme Court is considering this Mississippi law is a promising signal that perhaps a majority of Justices wish to give states greater power to regulate abortion,” Americans United for Life Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel Steven Aden stated. “At the same time, if the Court rejects Mississippi’s common sense HB 1510 protections, the pro-life movement will face a fundamental reckoning.”
Donald Trump’s defining political legacy stands to be remaking the Supreme Court into a six to three conservative majority.
Trump appointed three justices and tilted the Court further to the right by appointing Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Donald Trump would also like to mount a 2024 comeback campaign for the White House.
Trump will likely win the Republican nomination no matter what, but Trump will need supercharged GOP base turnout to win in 2024.
In 2016 and 2020, Trump achieved that goal by promising to appoint conservative Supreme Court justices and arguing that he followed through.
Should Trump’s three Supreme Court nominees fail to strike a blow against Roe v. Wade, will Trump be able to count on such heavy conservative base turnout?
