Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade this week: report

Fox News reports that the U.S. Supreme Court could announce its decision on whether or not to overturn the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade as early as Monday. 

This will come as part of the court’s much-anticipated decision in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Center. The justices, here, are considering the legality of a Mississippi law that bans abortions at the 15-week mark of a pregnancy.

In the process of ruling in Dobbs, the justices will be given the opportunity to overturn Roe, the case in which the U.S. Supreme Court discovered in the U.S. Constitution the so-called right to have an abortion.

A recent leak of the justices’ decision in Dobbs suggests that Roe will be overturned. This will return the controversial abortion issue to state legislatures where it can be decided by the people rather than a group of nine unelected judges.

Violence is possible

A new memo from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) indicates that the Biden administration is preparing for widespread violence should the justices decide to overturn Roe. 

We have already seen highly-questionable tactics being employed by the political left in an attempt to prevent the justices from overturning Roe. 

Pro-abortion advocates, for example, have targeted the private residences of conservative Supreme Court members. They have also targeted pro-life crisis pregnancy centers and even Catholic churches. This is expected to continue.

A separate memo from the DHS reveals that it is investigating threats that have been made both to the Supreme Court building as well as to the Supreme Court justices. One such threat, for example, is to “burn down” the building.

Security has been increased to prevent these threats from becoming a reality. Among other things, the justices are being protected and a fence has been erected around the Supreme Court building.

It could happen this week

The next opportunity that the justices have to release their decision in Dobbs will be Monday, May 23, at 10 a.m.

The Supreme Court’s term is rapidly coming to an end. Typically the term finishes around the end of June or the beginning of July.

The decision in Dobbs is expected to be issued before the end of the term.
