Mississippi Governor Defends State Ahead of Dobbs: “There is No Right to Abortion in the Constitution”


On Tuesday, the United States Supreme Court will hear a critical case which has the potential to see Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that effectively legalized abortion, overturned or significantly weakened.

The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, challenges a Mississippi law which bans abortion after 15 weeks gestation.

On Sunday, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves defended the state’s abortion regulation and pushed back against the idea that there is any such thing as a “constitutional right” to abortion, as many claim.

“I believe, in a simple reading of the United States Constitution, that when Roe was decided in 1973, there is no fundamental right in our United States Constitution to an abortion,” he told Meet the Press, as reported by The Washington Times.

What’s more, he added, “I believe very strongly that if you read the Constitution, there is nowhere in the Constitution that prohibits individual states, states like Mississippi, to limit access to abortions.” the governor said. “And so I think Roe was wrongly decided.”

The issue being considered in Dobbs is whether Mississippi, or any other state that puts restrictions on abortion, violates the precedent set by Roe.

It is expected that as the high court now has a conservative majority, the justices will at the very least significantly weaken Roe, if not overturn it all together.

Now is the time to pray fervently for our justices and for the attorneys arguing against the terrible decision that was made in 1973 that has led to the death of millions of unborn babies.

We can never profess to be a civil or just nation as long as the slaughter of unborn children in any form is permissible. Pray that this major milestone towards ending abortion once and for all might finally be passed.
