This’ll get challenged in the appeals courts, most of which won’t allow the bans. The main concern is whether or not the 5th circuit of appeals will, which would likely push this to the Supreme Court. It’s a constitutional right they’re trying to ban.
Not trying to ban it nationwide because that will never happen, just get it kicked back to the states so that each state can then vote on what they want their laws to be.
States can't pass laws that violate federal law or the Constitution though. This likely will end up going to the Supreme Court at some point and they're going to be forced to smack it down. Doesnt matter how conservative they are. It blatantly violates the Constitution. Even Uber-Conservative Scalia knew he had to follow that.
Yes, and the Supreme Court, once ruling something as "Constitutional" is never overturned at a later when a later court acknowledges that the original ruling was wrong. For instance: Supreme Court ruled in the Dred Scott case that slavery was Constitutional, they ruled in Plessy vs Ferguson that segregation was Constitutional and they ruled in Baker vs Nelson that state laws banning same sex marriage were Constitutional.
That's fair, but I have faith that the sheer backlash and outrage that the rest of the country is expressing will help influence them if they're tempted to try to overturn Roe v Wade.
I think you might be unpleasantly surprised how much ideologues don't give a fuck about other people's beliefs
I think it ought to just go back to the individual states to be decided and voted on. Most pro-life people are not stupid and acknowledge that it will never be totally outlawed at this point, but each state needs to be able to decide.
I disagree. Alabama just proved that states cant be trusted to do the best thing for their people when it comes to issues like this. If we left it up to the states, most of the south would still have slavery.
Murder is a constitutional right?
An abortion may be performed up to the time when the foetus is viable outside the mother’s body. Under the Criminal Code, this is 24 weeks. In practice, doctors apply a two-week margin of error, and stick to a time limit of 22 weeks. after that period a doctor cannot perform an abortion unless there is an serious medical situation, typically because the child cannot survive outside of the mother. abortion is a constitutional right under Roe V. Wade.
Sorry, but the law as passed will not prosecute you for getting an abortion. It will prosecute the doctor who performs it.
"HB 481, which is due to take effect on January 1, 2020, would also have consequences for women who suffer a miscarriage. If a woman were to miscarry based on her behavior—such as use of drugs or alcohol—she would be liable for second-degree murder, which is punishable to 10 to 30 years' imprisonment".
I don't see how they won't argue that a woman seeking out an abortion, through a doctor, wouldn't lead to them also blaming the woman for enlisting the service of someone with the goal of, "murdering her baby" on her behalf, like a hitman.
You may say I'm reaching with the latter part, but causing a miscarriage is tantamount to second degree murder, so I don't see how they would be cool with the woman seeking out an abortion.
