(Tea Party 247) – Thankfully, we are on the cusp of the US Supreme Court reviewing Roe v. Wade and possibly overturning it. Congress has started a petition calling on the Supreme Court to do just that and it’s gained the support of over 200 lawmakers, including two Democrats. The lawmakers have reportedly “signed an amicus brief led by Rep. Steve Scalise in a Louisiana abortion case set to be heard by the Supreme Court this spring,” One America News Network reports.
According to One America News Network:
In their petition lawmakers are advising the court to take up Roe v. Wade again and, if appropriate, should overrule the entire case. The document claims the right to abortion is “unworkable” and that the ruling has set a precedent, which has proven “radically unsettled.” The Supreme Court made Roe v. Wade law in a landmark 1973 ruling, deeming restrictive state regulation of abortion unconstitutional.
Proud to join @SteveScalise & more than 200 of my colleagues in the House & Senate in support of Louisiana’s common-sense law to protect life, health, & the safety of our nation’s mothers & children.

The new petition seeks to grant legal control over abortion to the states.
The measure reflects a law brought-forth by Louisiana lawmakers in 2014, requiring doctors be given “admitting privileges” before performing an abortion.
“The pro-choice side is saying that’s too restrictive…the pro-life side is saying, actually it’s good to know a doctor has these admitting privileges because that means he’s been checked out by the hospital.that means he’s not grossly incompetent or has something horrible in his record.” explained Paul Strand, Washington, D.C. journalist.
Critics also suggest the bill is designed to close abortion clinics altogether. This comes after the nation’s highest court turned down an identical bill in Texas in 2016 after claiming the law imposed an “undue burden” on women’s rights.
Louisiana’s proposal will be the first abortion case presented to justices since President Trump added two Republican justices to the bench. Hearings are expected to be held in March.
The progressive, death-obsessed left is reckless when it comes to the matter of abortion. They want no restrictions at all despite the dangers. It’s impossible to have a reasonable discussion about abortion with those on the left. They want unlimited access to abortion-on-demand in any and all circumstances, bar none. It’s truly sick and their agenda does little to hide the real goal here: population control and the oppression of minorities and the poor.
That being said, back in the 70’s when Roe v. Wade was first decided, there was nowhere near the kind of technology available as we have today. Sonograms weren’t widely used as common practice during pregnancies and even when they were used, the imagery was nowhere close to as vivid and clear as today. We can clearly see that babies are humans from very early on in development and that their heartbeats start incredibly early as well.
In the 70’s it was easy to dehumanize these very human beings. It was simple lack of knowledge but now we know better and the more we know the better we have to do. It has become obvious thanks to advances in medical science and technology that abortion is the ending of human life, period. It’s high-time the Supreme Court review Roe v. Wade and establish that personhood is established at conception and that the unborn are protected individuals just like born people.
It’s encouraging to see so many Congress members throwing their support behind this petition. Perhaps there is still hope.
