TRANSCRIPT

After hearing arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson case back in December, the U.S. Supreme Court will likely hand down a ruling in July. That decision could completely change America as we know it.

Church Militant's Hunter Bradford reveals what states are doing in the meantime, and what our country may look like soon.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health revolves around a 15-week abortion ban in Mississippi. But there's a possibility Roe v. Wade, the monumental 1973 case, could be completely scrapped. 

Many commentators on both sides of the issue believe the court will at least restrict access to child killing. The court has a conservative majority fronted by Catholics, including Clarence Thomas and Amy Coney Barrett.

Many pro-lifers are hoping Barrett will put her money where her mouth is and help turn the tide against the Culture of Death.

Amy Coney Barrett, justice, U.S. Supreme Court: "As Richard Fallon from Harvard said, Roe is not a super-precedent because calls for its overruling have never ceased. But that doesn't mean that it should be overruled."

Some of the liberal justices, like fake Catholic Sonia Sotomayor, believe a ruling against Roe in any way would cast doubt on the integrity of the highest court in the land.

Sonia Sotomayor, justice, U.S. Supreme Court: "Will this institution survive the stench that this creates in the public perception that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts?"

No matter how the court rules, states are taking sides in preparation for the likely landmark ruling. For example, on March 3, the Idaho Senate passed a bill that would award a minimum of $20,000 dollars to family members of an aborted child who sue the abortionist.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.: "I'm pro-life. I welcome pro-life legislation."

On the same day, state senators in Florida passed a 15-week ban on abortion. The measure now rests on the desk of Catholic governor Ron DeSantis.

Kentucky is moving in the same direction, with a Senate committee approving a Republican-backed bill banning abortion, also at 15 weeks.

Liberal states are going in the opposite direction — moving to even further embrace chopping up babies limb by limb. For example, back in December, California politicians vowed to make the Golden State a refuge for women seeking to dismember their own children. 

Few issues divide the American people more than the slaughter of the unborn. Both sides are firm in their beliefs, and the battle for life is heating up. 

Both West Virginia and Arizona have pushed a 15-week abortion ban through at least one chamber and await a vote from the other side of the legislature.
