The Supreme Court is currently reviewing a Mississippi law that would ban nearly all abortions after 15 weeks.
Though the leftists’ pro-abortionists thought they would enjoy the pleasures with a positive result out of this one, they got intercepted by Judge Clarence Thomas – a veteran in his field, with over than 30 years of experience.

Justice Clarence Thomas asked a pointed question during the hearing that should have pro-abortion liberals worried.
” Does a mother have a right to ingest drugs and harm a pre-viable baby? Can the state bring child neglect charges against the mother?“ he asked.
The attorney representing Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the organization attempting to overturn the law, had this to say: “That’s not what this case is about, but a woman has a right to make choices about her body.”

Here’s more from CNN’s report, explaining further that Roberts and Kavanaugh might be looking at a “middle ground,” where they may not support completely reversing Roe v Wade:
“Roberts suggested the court could look at Mississippi’s 15-week law as a new viability standard, rather than Roe and Casey, which is over 20 weeks. And Kavanaugh, meanwhile, has asked to confirm that Mississippi isn’t asking the court to outright prohibit abortion, a way to say it’s not overturning Roe while limiting access.
Kavanaugh asked another set of questions suggesting he is inclined to rule with Mississippi and even go as far as to reverse Roe.
In broad strokes, he sums up Mississippi’s argument asking the court to interpret the Constitution as neutral on abortion and to return the issue to state or Congress. He asked Rikelman to respond.
Then he asked a question about stare decisis, ticking off several “consequential” decisions — including on school segregation, voting rights, and business regulations — where the court overturned precedent.”
CNN’s report on Roberts stated:
“Roberts, a key swing vote, had questions specifically about Mississippi’s ban, asking Julie Rikelman, a lawyer representing Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only licensed abortion clinic in the state, why 15 weeks is not enough time for a woman to obtain an abortion.
Rikelman said that a “reasonable possibility standard” would be “unworkable” for the courts and that without the viability line, states will push that point earlier and earlier in the pregnancy.
She also pushed back on a claim by Roberts that the United States stands out internationally for how late into the pregnancy it allows abortion. She said that many countries – including Canada and several countries in Europe – permit abortion up until viability. She also noted that other countries have fewer regulatory barriers to the procedure.”
“The Constitution is neither pro-life nor pro-choice … and leaves the issue to the people to resolve in the democratic process,” Kavanaugh said.
