Matt Gaetz defends Trump over Ukraine scandal. Bernie Sanders had a heart attack, campaign says.
The real story behind Harper Lee’s lost true crime book
What Trump isn't telling you about his children. Rubio says Trump did not make 'a real request' to China. Biden: Trump has indicted himself. Trump changes his story as evidence mounts. That two-pronged goal was clearly the intent of the bill's sponsor -- state Rep. Terry Collins R , who said after the vote: "This bill is about challenging Roe v.
Wade and protecting the lives of the unborn, because an unborn baby is a person who deserves love and protection. It quite clearly will challenge the ruling, since prohibiting abortion in all but one case seems to directly come into conflict with the Supreme Court's finding that it is against the law to place an "undue burden" on a woman seeking an abortion before a viable fetus -- one that can live outside the womb -- emerges. And while the Alabama law is the strictest in the nation -- and therefore most at-odds with established federal law -- is it far from the only piece of abortion legislation that seeks to push the boundaries of Roe.
Last month, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed a so-called "fetal heartbeat" law , which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can come as early as the 6-week mark -- a time when some women may still not even know they are pregnant. Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a similar measure earlier this month. These laws will almost immediately be appealed -- and will join a growing list of cases that could arrive at the doorstep of the Supreme Court in the not-too-distant future.
The court is poised in upcoming months to consider hearing a challenge to a Louisiana law that would force doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of where an abortion is performed, a stricture that those opposed to the law insist violates the "undue burden" notion.
According to CNN Supreme Court expert Joan Biskupic, the court calendar could well mean that a ruling on the Louisiana law comes down in the summer of -- right in the heart of the presidential campaign. Now, the court rejected a Texas law very similar to the Louisiana one back in But -- and this is the point -- that was a very, very different court. For starters, there were only eight members. Senate Republicans refused to meet with or hold confirmation hearings for then-President Barack Obama's nominee -- Merrick Garland -- citing the fact that it was too close to a presidential election for the outgoing Obama to make such a consequential pick.
When that ninth spot on the court was eventually filled, it was with Neil Gorsuch, a conservative selected by President Donald Trump. The other big difference between the court and today's court? Swing vote Anthony Kennedy has been traded out for conservative Brett Kavanaugh. Which means that there are five conservative justices and four liberals on the court.
The new court's makeup has many legal experts convinced that the next time a serious challenge to Roe is heard, the law will be struck down. Abortion will be illegal in twenty states in 18 months. And Trump, for his part, has been transparent about his desire to see Roe overturned. Witness this exchange with "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace in the late stages of the campaign:.
