The chief justice of the Supreme Court Wednesday asked abortion promoters why isn’t 15 weeks enough time to decide whether to get an abortion.

The court heard arguments over a case out of Mississippi where a new state law would limit abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, lowering the limit that now is vaguely called “viability,” which is considered to be about 24 weeks.
Chief Justice John Roberts said, “If you think that the issue is one of choice – that women should have a choice to terminate their pregnancy – that supposes that there is a point at which they’ve had the fair choice, opportunity to choice.
“And why would 15 weeks be an inappropriate line? Viability, it seems to me, doesn’t have anything to do with choice. But if it really is an issue about choice, why is 15 weeks not enough time?”
A lawyer promoting abortion, and fighting the state’s new limit, Julie Rickelman, speculated that the problem would be “there will be no stopping point. States will rush to ban abortion at virtually any point in pregnancy.”
While the case is about a Mississippi limit, it’s widely considered to be a way for the high court to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade precedent that essentially created an unlimited “right” to abortion in the U.S.
The problem is that abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution and the author of the opinion creating that right, Harry Blackmun, admitted in the opinion itself that it was based on assumptions.
He said “if this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] amendment.”
Another justice considered to be on the conservative side of the Supreme Court spectrum, Samuel Alito, questioned a pro-abortion lawyer about “viability.”
“What would you say to the argument that has been made many times by people who are pro-choice and pro-life, that the line really doesn’t make any sense — that it is, as Justice Blackman himself described it, arbitrary?” he asked Rikelman.
He pointed out that the unborn child “has an interest in having a life” both before and after viability, to which Rikelman said, “In some people’s view it doesn’t.”

Fox News reported Justice Brett Kavanaugh asked whether the Supreme Court actually can simply ban abortion, but Mississippi Solicitor General Scott Stewart said it cannot.
“As I understand it, you’re arguing that the Constitution’s silent and therefore neutral on the question of abortion. In other words, that the Constitution’s neither pro-life nor pro-choice?” Kavanaugh said, to which Stewart agreed.
The lower abortion time period actually would move the U.S. away from alignment with repressive nations like China and North Korea, which also use that standard, and into step with much of the rest of the civilized world.
If Roe is overturned, regulation of abortion would be the responsibility of states.
Democrats in America, in fact, have gone to extremes to promotion abortion up to the point of birth, or even after.
It was Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam who infamously argued for infanticide in a radio interview several years ago.
He said if a child survived an abortion attempt, “it would be kept comfortable if that that’s what the mother desired” and then there would be a “discussion” between the doctor and mother about whether the child would be allowed to live.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
