The Supreme Court Appears Ready to Restrict Abortions or Overrule Roe
We begin with the oral arguments today in the Supreme Court on the Mississippi abortion case that seemed to indicate the right wing majority of justices are willing to uphold the State of Mississippi’s abortion restrictions. Joining us is Sherry Colb, Professor of Law at Cornell University who teaches courses in constitutional criminal procedure, evidence, and animal rights and has published articles in a variety of law reviews on reproductive rights and her most recent book is, Beating Hearts: Abortion and Animal Rights which addresses both the pro-life and animal rights movements. She clerked for Justice Harry A. Blackmun of the U.S. Supreme Court and we discuss her prediction in The Washington Post that the outcome is not a nail-biter since the Supreme Court will uphold the Mississippi 15-week ban and say that it is not overruling Casey because it does not need to reach the question, since a 15-week ban does not impose an undue burden. The decision, she feels, will be at best manipulative, and at worst dishonest.
