Federal judge blocks Mississippi's 'heartbeat' abortion law
Obama appointed U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves on Friday issued a strongly worded preliminary injunction blocking Mississippi's "heartbeat" abortion law, that would have banned abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, when a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Reeves' order will combine the lawsuit against Mississippi's fetal heartbeat ban with an ongoing one against the state's previous 15-week abortion ban.
"Here we go again," Reeves wrote. "Mississippi has passed another law banning abortions prior to viability. The latest interpretation (Mississippi's new law) bans abortions in Mississippi after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is as early as 6 weeks."...
The court will probably put off any big moves until after the 2020 election, at least this article is suggesting that.

In some ways, the success of these restrictions may have set an expectation that a full abortion ban would be next, said Elizabeth Nash, senior state issues manager at Guttmacher. ‚ÄúOnce you pass five, 10, 15 abortion restrictions, there‚Äôs not much left to do but ban abortion outright,‚ÄĚ she said.
But this more extreme strategy is controversial even within the anti-abortion movement. Clarke Forsythe, senior counsel for Americans United for Life, an organization that is currently advocating for 20-week abortion bans and other restrictions like mandatory ultrasounds, said that he thinks the new wave of laws is unlikely to tempt the Supreme Court. ‚ÄúI think the court simply will not hear them,‚ÄĚ he said....

CBS News poll? You can't be serious. Either you are gullible, or you have an agenda.
Somehow legal precedence based on an immediately lie and false testimony seems totally illogical to me. Of course Rove vs Wade need not only to be revisited but overturned. Its like The Emperor's New Clothes. After the kid has pointed at the emperor and boldly proclaimed the obvious "He is naked!" then which of the emperor's counselors and advisors are going to come up with a strategy where his government can admit their error and save face?
I believe if an honest legal presentation based on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, medical testimonies, and biological and anthropological sciences then the humanity of the unborn would be clearly defined and established. Once that it out of the way then all that remains is how should all past abortions declared as legal should be classified and viewed concerning those who participated in them? But going forward after abortions are again declared illegal what should be the consequences concerning those who continue to perform and participate in them even to the point of traveling to other countries to have it performed? How should abortifacient drug and devices be regulated and administered?

Recent state laws restricting abortions have prompted speculation over whether the Supreme Court might one day revisit the decision.
