Finally it looks like Republicans are manning up to try and take down the greatest evil of our time.
11 governors, including Ron DeSantis are trying to get the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade. The crazy thing is, it might just work.
Along with DeSantis, 10 other GOP governors signed the brief: Kay Ivey of Alabama, Doug Ducey of Arizona, Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, Brian K. Kemp of Georgia, Brad Little of Idaho, Kim Reynolds of Iowa, Mike Parson of Missouri, Greg Gianforte of Montana, J. Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, and Greg Abbott of Texas.
While this may appear at first glance to be a move to outlaw abortion, it is actually an action that would leave regulation of abortion to the states.
Federal rules have overturned local desires to maintain morals and traditions by mandating that every state adheres to their ruling on what can be widely considered a hotly debated topic. GOP Governors are citing the U.S. Constitution and claiming the Federal Government has long overreached into issues that are reserved for the states to handle.
Ron DeSantis asks the Federal Government to correct their mistake in their abortion jurisprudence and recognize that the test of the Fourteenth Amendment has nothing to do with abortion.
Mississippi Attorney General Lyn Fitch says that some believe Roe v. Wade had settled the issue of abortion once and for all but in reality, it created a “special-rules regime for abortion jurisprudence”. She believes that this has caused laws that lack focus on their objective and stunt the advancement of society.
The great thing is that the Supreme Court has agreed to take up this case and will begin hearing arguments in the fall.
This is really going to be the greatest test for this "conservative" majority Supreme Court. However, this is the same Supreme Court that has failed us many times already, aligning themselves with the liberal justices on the Supreme Court.
