Conservatives fought to elect Donald Trump in 2016 so he would be the one nominating Supreme Court justices.
That paid off when Republicans confirmed Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
But now Brett Kavanaugh will be faced with a decision that could change everything.
State legislatures around the country are passing “heartbeat bills” designed to ban abortions as soon as a heartbeat is detected.
This occurs as soon as six weeks.
Alabama just passed the strictest heartbeat bill in the country which is a 100% pro-life bill with no exceptions, which protects the baby’s life at every stage of pregnancy.
The legislation also punishes doctors with 99 years in prison for killing babies.
Late Tuesday, the Alabama State Senate passed what would be the nation’s strictest abortion laws should it be signed by Republican Gov. Kay Ivey.
House Bill 314 passed the Senate by a 25-6 vote, and it does not include exceptions for rape or incest. Earlier in the day, the Senate had rejected an amendment that would have added such exceptions by a 21-11 vote margin.
Earlier this month, HB 314 was passed by the Alabama House of Representatives by a 74-3 margin, and now awaits the governor’s signature.
The bill’s proponents argue its strict nature is intended to establish a baby in the womb as a person.
With the number state legislatures around the country passing heartbeat bills, it is impossible for the Supreme Court to duck this issue.
And it will likely land in their laps during the 2020 election season.
That means Brett Kavanaugh and his colleagues will be faced with a monumental decision that could end abortion in America.
