On Thursday, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch asked the United States Supreme Court to defend “the right of the people to pass laws that protect life and women’s health,” urging the body to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The Daily Wire reports:

“This Court’s abortion precedents depart from a sound understanding of the Constitution. In Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992), this Court held that abortion is a right specially protected by the Fourteenth Amendment, and so laws restricting it must withstand heightened scrutiny,” Fitch wrote in a brief. “This Court should overrule Roe and Casey.”

“Roe and Casey are egregiously wrong,” the brief stated. “The conclusion that abortion is a constitutional right has no basis in text, structure, history, or tradition.”

The brief was filed in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which will be the first major abortion case that the court’s three new conservative justices will hear. The case centers around the question of whether all pre-viability bans on abortions are unconstitutional, the Daily Caller reports.

“There are those who would like to believe that Roe v. Wade settled the issue of abortion once and for all,” Fitch said in a separate statement. “But all it did was establish a special-rules regime for abortion jurisprudence that has left these cases out of step with other Court decisions and neutral principles of law applied by the Court.”

Would be great but our SCOTUS supports, condones and protects baby killers, election fraud scum, terrorists like antifa and BLM. These are 9 subhuman animals. When we needed them most they abandoned us and cut out our hearts. THEY DESERVE SAME PUNISHMENT AS EVERY TRAITOR. ESPECIALLY TRAITOR COMMIE KAVANAUGH and BARRETT. AMERICA STOOD UP FOR THEM. WE THOUGHT THEY WERE GOD FEARING AMERICANS. TURNS OUT THEY ARE SATANIC FILTH WHO DESERVE GODS WRATH.

Very pleased with Mississippi’s sentiments; HOWEVER, why in the name of all that’s holy is Mississippi petitioning the Supreme Court to reverse Roe v Wade? Their legal argument clearly and convincingly states that Roe v Wade has no constitutional legs, that it is effectively null and void. Well then, Mississippi–and other States as well–look to the 10 th Amendment, and predicated on the legal argument already tendered by Mississippi to justify the Supreme Court’s reversing its Roe v Wade ruling, simply exercise your residual authority NOT to enforce that bogus Supreme Court ruling. Why make a mountain out of a mole hill, or words to that effect. DON’T HONOR OR ENFORCE Roe v Wade. Such is completely within a State’s constitutional purview. States have become so accustomed to being the lap dogs and vassals of big brother, they’ve lost their way, their principles and their spines.JUST SAY NO, for God’s sake. You have the authority to do so. Wake up!!!
