The full name of the case is Thomas E. Dobbs, State Health Officer of the Mississippi Department of Health, et al. v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, et al., but most people call it “Dobbs v. Jackson” or simply “Dobbs.”
In the Dobbs case, the Supreme Court has to decide the constitutionality of a 2018 state law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of gestation in Mississippi.
Abortion groups have challenged Mississippi’s 2018 pro-life law ever since it passed, pointing out that it seems to violate the “constitutional right to abortion” guaranteed by Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in all 50 states.
But that’s just the thing! When the Supreme Court agreed to take on Dobbs, everyone quickly realized what it would mean. Their ruling on Dobbs could amount to a ruling on the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade itself, together with other pro-abortion legal precedents such as the case of Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which further cemented the “constitutionality” of Roe.
We can’t take anything for granted, but yes, the Supreme Court of the United States currently has a majority of five Justices who are widely considered to be pro-life — including the three justices added during the Trump administration.
In fact, Justice Clarence Thomas has even openly called for the Supreme Court to consider striking down Roe as wrongly decided.
They couldn’t be more opposite! Jackson Women’s Health Organization believes that Roe v. Wade is sacred and must always remain the law of the land. Mississippi officials, on the other hand, have openly called on the Supreme Court to repeal Roe. Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch called Roe “egregiously wrong,” and officially requested that the high Court return the abortion issue to the states, where the people and their own elected lawmakers would be able to pass pro-life laws to protect the unborn.
CatholicVote is calling on Catholics everywhere to spend time with Jesus in the Eucharist. Please bring the intentions of the pro-life movement — and of our precious unborn brothers and sisters — before the Lord! “We’re asking every Catholic parish in America to consider an overnight vigil — with adoration of the Blessed Sacrament — on the eve of December First, the day when the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Dobbs case,” said CatholicVote President Brian Burch.
To inspire every Catholic in America to live out
the truths of our faith in public life.
