One of the major moments from Wednesday’s blockbuster oral arguments in the Supreme Court hearing on Mississippi’s law banning abortion after 15 weeks was when Chief Justice John Roberts noted that because of Roe v. Wade, America found itself in the company of China and North Korea in allowing abortion after viability was reached. This important point went completely unmentioned by the broadcast networks that took up the liberal position in support of the barbaric act.
“Roe v. Wade established a woman's constitutional right to have an abortion and if the court upholding the Mississippi law, it would undermine or overrule Roe altogether. Today, it seemed clear the conservative justices are ready to do exactly that,” sneered ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran on World News Tonight.
“12 [states] have trigger laws that would automatically halt or nearly all abortions if Roe is overturned,” noted correspondent Janet Shamlian on CBS Evening News. And on NBC Nightly News, they suggested women would become “second class citizens” if Roe was overturned.
