SCOTUS Will Hear Important Abortion Case

Publisher's note: This post appears here courtesy of the LifeZette, and written by David Kamioner.

    The relatively new 5-4 conservative majority in the U.S. Supreme Court will be tested soon as the high court has agreed to hear June Medical Services, LLC, v. Gee. The case, which will be heard this coming Spring, is regarding a Louisiana law that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at a state-authorized hospital within thirty miles of an abortion mill in case something goes wrong during an abortion.

    Botched abortions happen far more frequently than the media would have you know. Oh no, you say? Safe and unsullied? Two words: Kermit Gosnell.

    Republican Members of Congress have signed an amicus brief urging the SCOTUS to reconsider the Roe precedent while ruling on this particular case.

    The undecided factors in this case are the two new Trump-appointees, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Both are conservatives and Kavanaugh is known to be pro-life from previous decisions and legal opinions.

    If both of them voted to uphold the Louisiana law, as the 5th Circuit has, then the political impact in a presidential year could be enormous.

    It would gladden conservatives with another Trump win. But remember Newton's Third Law: For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. Thus young women, who have sadly been conditioned to believe that the right to an abortion is something the Founders included in the constitution, would make a lot of noise and perhaps increase Dem turnout.

    All the law does is actually make the sordid procedure safer by mandating that a woman can trust she will be rushed to a hospital in a medical emergency and that the doctor performing the abortion has the opportunity to practice at the hospital. Not exactly a radical position.

    But to pro-choicers who feel anything that could hinder a woman in getting an abortion at any time, at any place, at any stage of pregnancy up to and including birth is a monstrosity, this law is poison.

    However, it's not up to them. It's up to the SCOTUS.
