Liberals are losing their minds right now as the realization that the Obama legacy is just months away from being wiped away completely. Obamacare will be gone. TPP? GONE. In fact, Trump is planning on erasing most, if not all of Obama’s executive orders showing the nation that a pen and a phone, without the will of the people, is useless. The biggest win on the horizon though may be one that has been decades in the making, and that is the overturning of Roe vs Wade. Now, many people think that this will make abortion illegal…it will not. What it will do it give the decision back to each state as to whether or not they will allow abortion. The fact that Trump will get to nominate at least 1, and as many as 3 SCOTUS justices in the next 4 years guarantees a court that is open to the idea of doing away with abortion at a federal level, and that they will use new evidence; such as the fact that the preborn baby feels pain, to make this decision. Another probability is that Planned Parenthood will lose their federal funding…FINALLY. This too though will not end Planned Parenthood, it will simply mean that tax dollars can no longer go to them. They are a for profit company though, and they should have never had access to tax dollars to begin with. When this happens, we will be a year or two away from seeing them close their doors for good. So what will the entire process look like? Let’s take a look at a possible timeline.
2017-Trump appoints conservative justice to SCOTUS, his nominee is confirmed
2017-States draft bills like the “Protection at Conception Act” currently being proposed in Indiana by Hoosiers for Life
2018-Omnibus Spending Bill Cuts off all tax funding to Planned Parenthood
2019-a lawsuit is brought that challenges preborn babies NOT being given personhood status
2020-Case taken to SCOTUS and found in favor of the preborn baby
2020-Roe vs. Wade overturned on grounds of personhood
Now the really exciting thing is that while all of this is happening, cases in many states will be brought (as many already have been) such as the “Abortion is Murder Bill” and the “Protection at Conception Act”. This will allow for a simultaneous overturning of Roe and MANY states making abortion illegal.
This is vague on purpose as I am not at all a lawyer, however, it gives a framework for what could occur. One thing is for sure; the time has never been so perfect to protect the sanctity of all life, and with a GOP owned White House and Congress and Senate (not to mention 37 State Legislatures), we will be seeing this as a priority over the next several years.
One cannot be too certain where this will all lead though, as Reagan’s appointee to SCOTUS, Sandra Day O’Conner was supposed to be the judge that allowed abortion to go away back in the 80’s and 90’s, and she turned out to be a left of center social liberal. The prayer cannot stop. Paying attention to our elected representatives cannot stop. We must continue to stay vigilant!
