Abortion Foes Seize on Chance to Overturn Roe

posted on April 16, 2018

POLITICO’s Jennifer Haberkorn reports, “The anti-abortion movement believes it’s one Donald Trump-appointed Supreme Court justice away from a shot at overturning Roe v. Wade, and advocates are teeing up what they hope will be the winning challenge.” A series of harsh state-level restrictions on abortion have been passed or been proposed in recent months, any of which would prompt lawsuits that could then make it to the Supreme Court. Haberkorn writes, “The determination to revisit Roe comes amid renewed speculation about the possible retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, which would give anti-abortion forces their best opportunity in a generation to weaken or strike down the ruling that made abortion legal.”
