Gianforte Proudly Adds Name to Supreme Court Abortion-Rights Challenge

-

Governor Gianforte joined a dozen other states in support of Mississippi’s abortion case that is making its way to the Supreme Court. The state is asking the court to overturn both the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, which made abortion legal, but also Planned Parenthood v. Casey, a 1992 ruling that gave states the right to regulate abortion a little bit, but still upheld the constitutional right to get one in the first place.

Three years ago, Mississippi banned nearly all abortions after 15 weeks, an action that swiftly saw them sued and taken to court. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals declared it unconstitutional, but the state aggressively petitioned the higher powers until the Supreme Court agreed to hear it starting this October.

By signing on to the amicus brief, Gianforte joined the other governors in showing their support.

“The governor is pro-life,” said Gianforte spokesperson Brooke Stroyke in a statement “and believes we must protect the most vulnerable among us, the unborn.”

While many are hopeful that the Supreme Court will give a favorable ruling on account of the three new justices nominated by Trump giving the court a conservative advantage, it’s worth noting that the original decision wasn’t decided by Democrat-nominated justices, but by Republicans. Upworthy notes:

The bill to ban abortion at 15 weeks is more aggressive than what Montana currently has in place.

In April of this year, Gianforte signed 3 bills restricting abortion, including a 20-week ban sponsored by Rep. Lola Sheldon-Galloway, a bill requiring that health care providers to ask abortion-intending pregnant women if they want to see an ultrasound before they pull the proverbial and literal trigger that was sponsored by Rep. Amy Regier, and a third bill by Rep. Sharon Greef that required women seeking abortion pills like ‘Plan-B’ to have an in-person visit with a health professional first, visit than a rather than through telehealth.

A fourth measure, sponsored by Rep. Matt Regier is a ballot initiative requiring doctors and nurses to provide life-saving measures for any children born alive during a botched abortion. The referendum is called the Montana Born-Alive Infant Protection Act and will be voted on by Montanas in 2022.

In 2018, there were 1,674 abortions reported in Montana, with girls and young women between the ages of 15-19 accounting for 11%.
