For the first time in decades, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments tomorrow in a case that could overturn Roe v. Wade‘s fetal viability argument and therefore overturn Roe v. Wade in its entirety. The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, concerns a 2018 Mississippi law that bans abortions at 15 weeks (or before fetal viability) except in a medical emergency.
The law differs from other pro-life laws in that it requires doctors to determine the baby’s gestational age before determining an abortion. This closes a loophole some abortion facilities practiced where doctors purposely avoided verifying the age of the baby before terminating them.
Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief on behalf of more than 70,000 Hispanic American and Black American churches urging the Supreme Court to uphold the sanctity of life while also decrying abortion as a tool of eugenics. These churches collectively demand the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade because the ruling supports eugenics and violates the right to life as outlined in the Constitution.
In multiple instances, Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, argues for birth control and abortion to produce the communist “ubermench,” or “Superman.” This “Superman” is nothing resembling the comic book hero. Instead, communists regard him as the man or woman inside of everyone whom they must brainwash into existence through weaponizing education and selective, eugenic breeding.
Therefore, by upholding abortion, in many ways Roe v. Wade upheld Margaret Sanger herself and her religious adherence to sterilizing races other than hers to remove “the unfit” from procreation. Abortion and birth control’s purpose was not to “assist” women or to prevent unwanted births, but to sterilize Black Americans out of existence. Therefore, abortion and Roe v. Wade are Margaret Sanger’s true eugenic legacy.
So why is Roe v. Wade on the chopping block? The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals cited Roe v. Wade as the reason the Mississippi law is unconstitutional. According to the ruling, 15 weeks is before “viability” and therefore Roe bans all abortions at this period. So the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade and ends the fetal viability standard if they rule in favor of Dobbs et. al.
Fetal viability is the earliest possible week where a baby can live with doctors’ help when removed from the womb. Currently, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey made that period from 22 weeks onward. However, doctors have kept babies alive from as early as 21 weeks, which questions Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey‘s scientific arguments for a 22-week fetal viability.
Additionally, central to the abortion debate is whether life begins at conception. Science answers that question with an emphatic “yes.” This indicates that, regardless of fetal viability, abortion constitutes murder since the baby is alive in the womb.
