For many, the Supreme Court has been a source of significant disappointment.
Conservatives fought for Kavanaugh and Amy Coney-Barrett to bring balance back to the Supreme Court.
All that fighting only to see them turn a blind eye to the election corruption that was robbing President Trump of another four years.
Well, the Supreme Court has another chance to uphold the letter and spirit of the Constitution.
The Supreme Court has just approved the hearing of a case that could narrow or overturn the most significant pillar of abortion, Roe v. Wade.
Reuters gives us the rundown.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to consider gutting the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, taking up Mississippi’s bid to revive a Republican-backed state law that bans the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
By hearing the case in their next term, which starts in October and ends in June 2022, the justices will look at whether to overturn a central part of the landmark ruling, a longstanding goal of religious conservatives.
In the Roe v. Wade decision, subsequently reaffirmed in 1992, the court said that states could not ban abortion before the viability of the fetus outside the womb, which is generally viewed by doctors as between 24 and 28 weeks. The Mississippi law would ban abortion much earlier than that.
This is exciting news! Maybe.
The Supreme Court in a 5-4 June 2020 ruling struck down an abortion law in Louisiana that imposed restrictions on doctors who perform the procedure. The late liberal Justice Ruth Bader was still on the court at the time, and conservative Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the court’s liberal wing in the ruling. Roberts at the time, however, made it clear that he voted the way he did because he felt bound by the court’s 2016 ruling that struck down a similar law in Texas.
It all depends on our new Supreme Court Justices. We already know that Justice Roberts was a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and based on how they handled the election fraud, the jury is still out on ACB and Kavanaugh.
Conservatives are holding out hope because, for the first time in nearly three decades, a court has the potential to interpret the Constitution, not legislate.
In more good news, Twitter liberals and Progressive politicians are not happy about this. They’re downright scared. Their anger means they know this fight has a real shot at working.
Breaking: #SCOTUS to hear direct challenge to Roe v. Wade. Never forget that McConnell and others mocked us and gaslit us through the Kavanaugh fight for claiming that legal abortion was in jeopardy. They knew. They lied. We knew. We fought. And we’re so far from done fighting.

Politicians are rushing to get Abortion as normalized and entrenched as possible.
BREAKING: The U.S. Supreme Court announced it will review Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
This case is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade.
It’s why Congress needs to act NOW to codify the protections guaranteed under Roe!

As conservatives and pro-life advocates, this moment in history could end up being one we tell future generations about.
It will be interesting to see how this fight develops as it gets put on the calendar to be heard in front of the most powerful court in the world.
