The Supreme Court is set to consider a case today that could potentially undo Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion in the U.S. The High Court will hear a challenge to a 2018 Mississippi law that would ban most abortions at 15 weeks of pregnancy. Pro-choice advocates and lower courts say that the law violates women’s rights. However, pro-life advocates say it is time to change the long-standing precedent regarding abortion. Constitution expert and FOX News Contributor Jonathan Turley previews what he calls “most consequential abortion case in decades,” speculates how the more conservative Court could rule and what would happen if Roe v. Wade is actually overturned.
Concern over the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been making waves across the globe and in the U.S. stocks took a dive while health officials issued warnings. President Biden spoke out, telling Americans not to panic and assuring them shutdowns would not be used to combat the pandemic. Dr. Jerome Adams, 20th U.S. Surgeon General and Director of Health Equity Initiatives at Purdue University joins to discuss why we still need more information on the severity of the Omicron variant, why this variant’s multiple mutations could be cause for concern, and the need for the federal government to create more sensible policies on COVID-19 while the states make their own choices.
