Supreme Court to Hear Challenge to Roe v. Wade

Case involves Mississippi law.

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court accepted a Mississippi challenge to an abortion precedent set by Roe v. Wade. In an unsigned order, the Court said it would hear the case but limited its scope to the first question presented in the petition, which is whether “all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortion are unconstitutional.” Two other questions which related to scrutiny of abortion restrictions will not be included.

In the petition, Mississippi’s attorney general asked the Court to consider if the state’s 2018 law banning abortions before 15 weeks is unconstitutional. She wrote that the Court must resolve contradictions in its decisions over when viability begins.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Supreme Court justices as they decide which cases to hear in their next term.
  • For the attorneys writing briefs and preparing for arguments in the challenge to Roe v. Wade.
  • With gratitude for the attempts being made in the states to protect life in the womb.
