Demokratiese wetgewers hernu oproepe om setels by die Hooggeregshof te voeg ná mondelinge argumente oor aborsie

Die hof het argumente in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization on Wednesday, en regsontleders het voorgestel dat die konserwatiewe meerderheid dekades se presedent sal vernietig ná Roe v.. Wade, the landmark ruling that limited government restrictions on abortion. As dit wel gebeur, it would open the door for state legislatures to pass laws banning abortions prior to fetal viability.

IF ROE V. WADE IS OVERTURNED, HERE’S WHAT HAPPENS

Former President Trump appointed three justices who were confirmed to the high court, shifting the makeup to six GOP-appointed justices and three Democrat-appointed justices. As gevolg daarvan, Democratic lawmakers have called to remove the Senate filibuster requiring 60 votes to pass legislation to add more seats to the court.
