According to a new report, there are still enough conservative votes on the Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs. Wade.

As The Daily Wire reports:


A Supreme Court majority in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade was reportedly still in agreement long after a draft of the majority opinion was written in February.

The draft, which was leaked to the public last week, does not represent the final decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. Justices are still able to suggest changes to the majority opinion or switch their votes altogether until the court publishes its decision in the case.

As recently as two weeks ago, however, the reported majority in favor of striking down Roe was still together, sources told The Washington Post. “[T]hree conservatives close to the court” told WaPo that “the majority of five justices to strike Roe remains intact,” a question that has stirred those on both sides of the debate that has erupted around the future of abortion law in the U.S. in the wake of the leaked draft.

Chief Justice John Roberts is not siding with the majority, telling his colleagues in December that he planned to write an opinion upholding both Mississippi’s restrictions on abortion, in question in Dobbs, as well as Roe to the extent possible. The majority of the court disagreed with the chief justice and were “more interested in an opinion that overturned the precedents,” WaPo reported, citing a source “close to the most conservative members of the court.”

The news comes in the wake of a violent pressure campaign begun by radical Democrats and Progressives which has seen protestors come to the homes of Justices as well as firebomb and vandalize pro-life centers.

I think Robert’s point of view will be that Roe v Wade precedent does not need to be “overturned” in order to affirm that States have the purview on abortion. Roe v Wade was never specifically about abortion, it’s about a persons right to privacy and choices regarding their own healthcare. It actually applies to other things, such as choosing whether or not to get vaccinated, “my body, my choice”. What Roe v Wade doesn’t address, ones right to choose ends when it deprives another’s human right to life, and at what point an unborn child attains that human right to be protected by the Constitution. It is not mentioned in the Constitution, it is not ratified by a law from Congress. Congress, relizing this in the midst of a SCOTUS decision, is scrambling right now to push a bill establishing that an abortion can be done up to the point of birth, establishing that a xhild attains human rights at birth. Since the Constitution does not specify or delegate the purview of this to the US Govt, Ammendment 10 specifies, “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited to it by the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
The point at which an unborn child attains human rights has always been the purview of the States in accordance with Ammendment 10 of the Constitution. Roe v Wade still applies to many other things; there is no need to “overturn” Roe v Wade in order to affirm that States have purview of when human rights for a child born or unborn begin, and policy and law on abortion, and this authority has always been in the realm of “to the States, or to the people.” Roe v Wade and abortion can exist at the same time.

The Supreme Law of the land is not the U.S. Constitution, it is God’s WORD, and the Bible says that the shedding of innocent blood will desecrate your land, and this nation has slaughtered approx. 70 million of the most innocent of all life in the wombs of their mothers.
The Bible also says that the land must be cleansed of this innocent blood, and the cleansed is done by fire….
God has been sending His warnings of the destruction of the United States by heathen nations by a nuclear attack.
There is a cleansing fire that is about to fall from the East to the West, and the worldly protector of Israel will never again rise to power. The United States is about to reap the death and destruction she has so freely sown throughout this Earth for the last one hundred years or more.

To be transparent, I believe that life begins at conception! However, I was interested in your statement about Roe v Wade was never about abortion but a person’s right to privacy and choices regarding their own healthcare. First: When does my right to privacy or your right to privacy or anyone’s right to privacy justify murdering another human being? Here is what baffles me: a woman can abort a baby, in some states, up until time of delivery but let someone be the cause of an accident that kills her baby and they can/eill be tried for manslaughter or murder. SO, when it is convienent (or should i say inconvienent) for them it is considered health care.
Second: If it is their choice and all about healthcare, why are the taxpayers that had nothing to do with choice paying for her choice?
As for my take, I think it is in most cases (not including rape or incest) experience the exilerating pleasures of sex without taking responsibility for their actions.
Blessings

These ‘justices’ are all CATHOLIC TRAITORS. They are the bunch that want Americans to NOT have guns.

The justices have the same right. But the left claim to be anti gun but are heavily armed. They just want the guns of any opposition
