Pro-life activists across the country are pushing for anti-abortion legislation in order to pave the way for successful court battles and the eventual overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, late of #NeverTrump fame, vetoed legislation Dec. 13 that would prohibit abortions after six weeks of gestation. Also called the “heartbeat bill,” the law would have outlawed abortion at the time that the baby’s heartbeat could be detected. However, he signed into law a bill outlawing abortions after 20 weeks of gestation, at which time pro-life activists argue the unborn baby can feel pain. The “pain-capable” legislation is akin to that which 15 other states have enacted.
Ending Roe v. Wade could happen if the U.S. Supreme Court was packed with pro-life conservatives. To that end, pro-life organizations such as the Susan B. Anthony List and Concerned Women for America supported President-Elect Donald Trump’s candidacy.
Earlier this fall, Trump pledged to support legislation that would defund Planned Parenthood as long as it continued to perform abortions. He also said he would sign into law a federal “pain-capable” abortion ban. During his Oct. 19 presidential debate with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump famously described partial-birth abortions as procedures in which abortionists “rip the baby out of the womb of the mother.”
At present the U.S. Supreme Court lacks one justice, since Republicans in the Congress successfully stared down President Barack Obama and thwarted his desire to appoint a liberal replacement when Antonin Scalia died Feb. 13.
Scalia was nearly 80 years old when he passed away. At 83 years old, liberal icon and former general counsel for the ACLU Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the court’s eldest member. Pro-gay marriage justice Anthony Kennedy is the next oldest at 80 years of age, followed by 78-year old Clinton appointee Stephen Breyer. Every other Supreme Court justice is 68 years old or younger.
If during Trump’s administration the good Lord calls any or all of these three eldest justices to account, or if they retire, the president-elect’s nominees would presumably be stalwart defenders of unborn children. It is possible that the era of big, frequent, easy abortion could end in the next decade. All that’s needed are five votes.
Advocates of white interests debate whether abortion has a positive or negative impact on demographics, but there is no debate as to whether killing babies merits the blessing or curse of God. In that context, without question it is in the interests of any white ethnonationalists to defend the lives of unborn children.
