Liberals on social media were wringing their hands on Wednesday after the US Supreme Court heard oral arguments on a case involving a Mississippi law which many speculate could result in the court striking down the landmark Roe vs. Wade case.

As Yahoo News reports:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices on Wednesday indicated support for upholding a restrictive Mississippi abortion law in a ruling that would undermine or outright overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing the procedure nationwide.

The court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority, heard about two hours of oral arguments in the southern state’s appeal to revive its ban on abortion starting at 15 weeks of pregnancy, a Republican-backed law blocked by lower courts. During the arguments, the three liberal justices sternly warned against ditching important legal precedents like Roe v. Wade.

Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only abortion clinic in Mississippi, challenged the law and has the support of Democratic President Joe Biden’s administration. A ruling is expected by the end of next June.

Conservative justices downplayed the idea that the court must be careful in overturning its own precedents, noting that it has done that in many notable contexts including overturning a notorious 1895 ruling that allowed racial segregation.

Liberals weren’t happy with how the arguments played out:

Conservatives, on the other hand seemed to be celebrating what many believe to be an inevitable victory at the nation’s highest court and likely the end of legal abortion in many states:

I am not a lawyer or a doctor but I always thought as the images in the womb improved as the technology and science improved we would see what Bible Reading Christians have always known. God knows each of us from before our conception and creates each of us in His image. Our attempts to become gods and manage, manipulate or change His will have never ended well. Just ask Adam and Eve or the builders of the Tower of Babel. Is our country and our world a better place since the 1973 Supreme Court put themselves in between God and mankind and the Sacred Act of Creation? Righting this wrong may just be the first step towards returning our Country back to the Hands of the Creator and out of the hands of the politicians.
