Justices signal they'll OK new abortion limits, may toss Roe******
Participants hold signs during the Women's March "Hold The Line For Abortion Justice" outside the United States Supreme Court in Washington, DC on Wednesday.。
In the biggest challenge to abortion rights in decades, the United States Supreme Court's conservative majority on Wednesday signaled they would allow states to ban abortion much earlier in pregnancy and may even overturn the nationwide right that has existed for nearly 50 years.。
With hundreds of demonstrators outside chanting for and against, the justices led arguments that could decide the fate of the court's historic 1973 Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion throughout the US and its 1992 ruling in Planned Parenthood v Casey, which reaffirmed Roe.。
The outcome probably won't be known until next June. But after nearly two hours of arguments, all six conservative justices, including three appointed by former president Donald Trump, indicated they would uphold a Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.。
At the very least, such a decision would undermine Roe and Casey, which allows states to regulate but not ban abortion up until the point of fetal viability, at roughly 24 weeks.。
And there was also substantial support among the conservative justices for getting rid of Roe and Casey altogether. Justice Clarence Thomas is the only member of the court who has openly called for overruling the two cases.。
Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Trump appointee, asked whether the court would be better off withdrawing completely from the abortion issue and letting states decide.。
"Why should this court be the arbiter rather than Congress, the state legislatures, state supreme courts, the people being able to resolve this?" Kavanaugh asked. "And there will be different answers in Mississippi and New York, different answers in Alabama than California."
Abortion would soon become illegal or severely restricted in roughly half the states if Roe and Casey are overturned, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that supports abortion rights. Legislatures in many Republican-led states are poised for action depending on the Supreme Court's ruling. On Wednesday the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit vacated previous rulings that had blocked a Tennessee law that included banning abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected – about six weeks – and ordered a rehearing by the full court.。
People of color and lesser means would be disproportionately affected, supporters of abortion rights say.。
The court's three liberal justices said that reversing Roe and Casey would significantly damage the court's own legitimacy. "Will this institution survive the stench that this creates in the public perception that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts?" Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked.。
In unusually strong terms for a high-court argument, Justice Stephen Breyer warned his colleagues they "better be damn sure" before they throw away the established abortion decisions.。
Public opinion polls show support for preserving Roe, though some surveys also find backing for greater restrictions on abortion.。
