Mississippi has reportedly filed a new brief with the Supreme Court on a case which has the potential to challenge the landmark ruling ‘Roe vs Wade’ for the first time in decades.

As National Review reports:

On Thursday afternoon, Mississippi attorney general Lynn Fitch filed a brief in the most important Supreme Court abortion case in three decades. 

In the brief defending the constitutionality of Mississippi’s law prohibiting abortions after 15 weeks of gestation (with exceptions for when the life or physical health of the mother is endangered and in cases of severe fetal abnormalities that would prove fatal to the child), Attorney General Fitch argues that the Supreme Court’s Roe and Casey decisions should be overturned and state legislatures should be allowed to pass laws protecting the lives of human beings in the womb.

If the Court isn’t willing to allow legislatures to pass any rational law protecting the lives of unborn children, the attorney general argues, the Supreme Court should at the very least reject the “unworkable” and “arbitrary” line banning any prohibition on abortion before viability.  

“Overruling Roe and Casey makes resolution of this case straightforward,” the brief states. “The Mississippi law here prohibits abortions after 15 weeks’ gestation, with exceptions for medical emergency or severe fetal abnormality. That law rationally furthers valid interests in protecting unborn life, women’s health, and the medical profession’s integrity. It is therefore constitutional. If this Court does not overrule Roe and Casey’s heightened-scrutiny regime outright, it should at minimum hold that there is no pre-viability barrier to state prohibitions on abortion and uphold Mississippi’s law.”

The brief will be a test of the court’s six conservatives, three of whom were appointed by former President Trump. Will they live up to their past statements or submit to the fashionable wishes of liberals once again?

You females no longer have the brains to use contraceptives. We will be taking your vote away from you.

I agree. Women have embraced lifestyles that will expose them to unwanted pregnancy, which automatically translates to government dependency, or government funded abortions (And don’t believe for one second that our taxes have not already paid for these procedures.) This ‘benefit’ is a key component of a liberal campaign to enjoin women within their dependent constituency.

It’s also up to men. A package of head gaskets doesn’t cost much. I believe that both men and women share responsibility to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

China and Russia will be taking our votes away; will actually, there mostly likely will not be any more elections once they arrive on our shores..

Whoa….. as much as I hate abortions I take umbrage at your statement. Why don’t you males have the brains to use a contraceptive? You both need to be responsible even though the female is the one that suffers the most.

My girlfriend told me a joke. When she resisted my attempts to have sex, she said the best way to prevent unwanted pregnancies is to take aspirin. The she added, put an aspirin between your knees and don’t let it drop. Women are the ones who get pregnant. If you haven’t noticed, many women flaunt their attributes to entice men to crave their sexual favors. So you can’t blame men for doing what comes natural. Indeed, the woman should insist upon protection, but as we’re beginning to notice, many of those women still have to endure the vagaries of unprotected sex. In days of old, there was a female option called “Abstinence”. Currently, women have the option of claiming rape, and there are more ways than that to inhibit the male drive, including women demanding a wedding ring before sex. (That’s how my wife snagged me…)

We need to expand abortion criteria. In the case of Numb Nuts, the trimester limit to authorize the procedure should be adjusted to the 240th.

GOD should overturn Roe vs Wade. Reward abortionists and supporters with painful, terminal incurable disease. They take lives from voiceless innocent infants. WE THE PEOPLE WILL PROTECT THOSE LIVES AND PUNISH MURDERERS AND DISMEMBERERS

Not to mention abortion clinics chopping those kids into pieces and selling their parts on the black market. Between the wars they orchestrate, abortions, rioting, drugs and the Clinton hit lists, it seems liberals are well acquainted with the Grim Reaper.
