The Outside World Donald Trump on Roe v. Wade Published 2 years ago on Nov 15, 2016 By Jade Wilson Roe v. Wade has existed in the United States for forty three years now, giving right and choice to women on abortion. Recently, President-elect Donald Trump appointed Supreme Court justices who are against abortion laws as a part of his campaign. Scott Olson/Getty Images Trump’s Statement on Roe v. Wade In a recent interview with Lesley Stahl of CBS, Trump said that “pro-life” judges – who are against the concept of abortion – shall be appointed in the Supreme Court to decide the fate of Roe v. Wade. Now there is a possibility that Roe v. Wade might be rescinded. If that happens, then women will “have to go to another state” for abortions. When Stahl questioned Trump, “And that’s okay?” for the statement, Trump didn’t respond. Jessica Kourkounis/Getty Images Somehow it seems like Roe v. Wade has high chances of being annulled by the “pro-life” Supreme Court judges. What will women do if it really gets repealed? Not all women can afford to go to another state for an abortion. Is Roe v. Wade in Trouble? According to constitutional law expert Jessica Pieklo, “Roe is under threat, both directly and indirectly.” What will women do if Roe vs. Wade is overturned? Well, Mason Pieklo is also worried about the fact that if Congress proposes for a ’20 week ban on abortion’ or ‘Dilation and Evacuation’ (D&E), then Trump might sign it. Is Roe v. Wade Safe from Any Angle? The litigation director of Center for Reproductive Rights, Julie Rikelman thinks that Roe v. Wade cannot be overturned, and she gave three reasons for it. Spencer Platt/Getty Images Firstly, in the last four decades, Roe v. Wade has passed through many threats of being overturned by anti-choice administrations and most notably Justice Anthony Kennedy. The Supreme Court gives significance to precedents and to stare decisis. In stare decisis, the Supreme Court rules that the final verdict was reached after interpreting the constitution properly. So, to challenge this, very strong premises must be given for any argument against the verdict. Secondly, the Supreme Court has eight Justices now and Trump will appoint the ninth one, who will supposedly be a “pro-life” judge. There are five Justices who are in favor of Roe v. Wade making it secure. Even if one of the supporting Justices dies during Trump’s term in office, Roe v. Wade would still be protected as a precedent. And thirdly, the Supreme Court needs to hear a case to decide whether to overturn Roe v. Wade or not. There are many rules that need to be fulfilled before putting the case in the Supreme Court. No case can come within two weeks from now and demand an overturn of a precedential law. The right to abortion hasn’t yet been annulled completely in the United States, but they are under threat for sure, and so are the American women. The recently proposed bans on abortions and Trump’s statement might make the American woman lose her fundamental right of her body. A woman has her rights to get pregnant and to get an abortion in a democracy. But Leaders and Justices who are pro life, think otherwise. Next: Why Did Kendall Jenner Delete Her Instagram Account?...
