Planned Parenthood's Strategy to Continue Aborting Babies Even if Roe-v-Wade is Overturned: Here's What Pro-Lifers Can Do About It

Calvin Freiburger : Jul 6, 2018 :

As usual, working the judicial system is the key way immoral or unethical laws are protected. But constitutional amendments? That's quite another thing.

(Washington, DC)— [] As pro-life Americans hopefully anticipate a new Supreme Court justice that may vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, a leading national pro-life advocate says that pro-lifers are overlooking the rise of an even bigger obstacle to ending abortion. (Image: a Pre-born baby/via Wikispaces)

On Saturday, Save the 1 founder and president Rebecca Kiessling warned that the Iowa Supreme Court's decision Friday to strike down a state law requiring women to wait 72 hours before having abortions was part of a broader legal strategy to immunize their court victories by rooting them in state Constitutions rather than Roe.

"This has been the latest strategy of the abortion lobby and Planned Parenthood. They've been suing in State Courts and no one has been paying attention," she wrote on Facebook. "Other states such as North Dakota have found a broader right to an abortion under their state constitutions than there is pursuant to Roe versus Wade and they have been overturning even reasonable regulations."

Chief Justice Mark Cady wrote in his majority opinion that the law "violates both the due process and equal protection clauses of the Iowa Constitution because its restrictions on women are not narrowly tailored to serve a compelling interest of the state." The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld shorter 24-hour waiting periods as compatible with the federal Constitution.

"So, this whole discussion of Justice Kennedy retiring and President Trump getting to appoint a new Supreme Court Justice is really rendered moot because, when Roe is overturned, abortion will be legal in every blue state as well as in every red state where there is a liberal judiciary," Kiessling continued.

Despite keeping Roe in effect, the Supreme Court has upheld a variety of additional regulations on abortion, including prohibitions on non-physicians performing abortions, parental notification and consent requirements, excluding abortion funding from state Medicaid programs, and informed consent requirements. But in an interview with LifeSiteNews, Kiessling explained why those would be harder to uphold under the legal regime Planned Parenthood is trying to establish.

"This happened not just in Iowa, it happened in North Dakota several years ago, this is happening in Minnesota," she said, "Planned Parenthood, as a strategy, preparing for Roe v. Wade to be potentially overturned, has been filing cases in state court, in pro-life red states that are passing abortion regulations ... and they have been getting reasonable regulations overturned which would be upheld by the US Supreme Court, and they're finding a broader right to abortion under state constitutions"...
