Fetal Rights and the End of Roe (Illinois Family Spotlight #289)

Could the 14th Amendment summon the end of Roe? Joining the IFI Spotlight this week is Dr. Steve Jacobs with the Illinois Right To Life. Dr. Jacobs is the program director for IRL and has graduated with a law degree from Northwestern University School of Law and PhD from the University of Chicago. IFI’s Monte Larrick and Jenna Smith ask Jacobs about his firm belief that Roe will be overturned in June, and the evidence backing him up.

“The mere fact that they allowed the Texas Heartbeat law to go into effect, which essentially renders Roe no longer good law in this nation. . .if they allowed that law to go into effect, they would allow similar legislation in each of the fifty states to go into effect.”

Jacobs continues to state that as “Roe stood for the proposition that states could not restrict abortion access before viability,” and the Texas law is restricting abortion at the detection of a heartbeat, Roe is now void.
