Mississippi Gov. Reeves: ‘No guaranteed right to an abortion’ in Constitution

Appearing on CNN’s “Stato dell'unione,” Reeves, un repubblicano, said that judging from the justicesline of questioning he believes the pro-life movement will be handed a major win, as his state’s case could result in a shift away from rulings in aborto rights cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

This has been a watershed moment in American history over the last week, as this case that many of us in the pro-life movement have hoped would come before the court for many years,” disse il governatore. “Chiaramente, the questioning by a number of the justices led many people across America and particularly journalists who opine that they were looking very favorably on upholding the case, the Dobbs case, the Mississippi case, and that’s certainly a favorable outcome for us.

If you read the Constitution, secondo me, there is no guaranteed right to an abortion in our U.S. Costituzione,” Lui continuò. “And furthermore, not only is there not a guaranteed right, there’s also nothing in the Constitution that prohibits individual states from enacting their own laws. And after all, that really is what the founding fathers intended – for any issue that is not explicit in the Constitution it should be left to the states and the state legislatures and the democratic process.

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

Since Roe was enacted in 1973, ci sono stati 62 million American babies that have been killed through this process,” Reeves continued. “I will do everything I can to protect the lives of those children.

Il Corte Suprema on Wednesday heard oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Salute delle donne Jackson, where the state of Mississippi is petitioning to strike down a lower court’s ruling blocking its 15-week aborto ban law from taking effect.

Legal analysts have suggested the Supreme Court’s conservative majority could strike down some or all of the decades of precedent following Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, opening the door for state legislatures to pass laws banning abortions prior to fetal viability.
