Washington, DC – For years the Conservative United States has been campaigning for a 1973 Supreme Court ruling in Roe v Wade, affirming the mother’s right to an abortion.
The group, endorsed by the Republican Party and supported by evangelical Christians, has called for the election of responsible councilors in the states and territories, and has promoted the appointment of Conservative judges to the US Supreme Court. Now, anti-abortion agencies in the US are on the verge of a major legal victory.
Next year, the Supreme Court – consisting of a large number of cautious individuals – appears to be on the verge of violating the Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. rolling Roe and creating a major breach of ancient philosophies and conclusions.
“The law does not guarantee the survival of the fittest,” said Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in an oral argument over abortion. enactment of Mississippi laws. Instead, the Constitution “leaves the issue to the people of the nations, or perhaps Congress, to end the democratic process”, Kavanaugh said.
Elected in court in 2018 by then-President Donald Trump, Kavanaugh is one of six judges making the most of the new nine-member court. His comments echo the sentiments of abortion activists who want the Supreme Court to withdraw from the business of informing people whether abortion should be legal, and allow states to vote.
The prospect of a supreme court ruling in almost 50 years, which has sparked new controversy in U.S. governments over women’s rights, has made abortion advocates more concerned about the coming year. US women are preparing for a new political, uncoordinated, political war.
Christian Nunes, president of the National Organization of Women, told Al Jazeera: “I’m very worried about where we are going, especially with the increasing number of courts now.”
“Hearing the testimony of many judges in court, it seems he is too lenient to bring down Roe. It’s very frustrating. ”
Restoring Roe could affect millions of women in the US. According to a study by the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute, approximately 40 million women aged 13 to 44 live in states with anti-abortion policies, while about 26 million live in states that have proven to be supportive of their rights. abortion.
Twenty-six U.S. states are “certain or determined” to ban abortion if Roe is abducted, the agency found.
“We continue to fight the battles we have been fighting for years,” Nunes said. “We go back to the same things, women’s rights activists, freedom fighters for their reproductive health and well-being.”
The opinion of the Supreme Court has given new impetus to federal law in the US Congress. In September, the US House of Representatives for the first time voted 218-211 to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect the right to abortions from government bans and restrictions. But the bill will not advance in the Senate.
“We need to have one bill that will restore the security of the Constitution to Roe,” Representative Judy Chu, a California Democrat who has enacted anti-abortion laws in every Congress since 2013, told Al Jazeera. “The threat is getting very close.”
In the US Senate, the law has 48 Democratic supporters and aided by President Joe Biden but most Republicans – who occupy 50 percent of the Senate seats – oppose it. Only two Republican female senators, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, have expressed a desire to comply with the birth control law – not enough to repeal the Senate’s 60-vote bill, which could delay legislation.
While it is clear that the bill will not pass, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has volunteered to run in the by-elections, which would force senators to register with or against the election. This will give both sides a platform to campaign for, or oppose the right to abort in the upcoming November 2022 elections, and to direct Congress where it is at risk.
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the Mississippi case in June 2022. In the meantime, with the Mississippi laws enacted, some countries are making progress with abortion restrictions. Texas has recently introduced new and innovative features the law of “bounty-hunter”. which has blocked state abortion workers in the state.
“We want countries to have the power to enact laws that reflect human behavior, to use the democratic process to achieve unity,” said Mallory Quigley, vice president of Susan B Anthony List, a group that supports abortion prevention.
The rights of the ‘deep man’
“Consensus does not look like we are here, only to have abortions, until the time of birth,” Quigley told Al Jazeera.
If the Supreme Court defeats Roe, the ruling will set abortions, which are taken lightly by American generations, ahead of the Congress of 2022 and possibly the White House in 2024. Thousands of women are expected fall in Washington, DC in January to show support for women’s right to vote.
“It is difficult to say with certainty how important an abortion in court will be at this time,” Elizabeth Wydra, President of the Progressive Constitutional Accountability Center, told Al Jazeera in an email.
“The personal freedom to make decisions for the human body and the right to procreation are at stake.”
