With Joe Biden making a mockery of the federal government (and with Democrats turning Congress into a circus), it falls to state leaders to preserve our rights and values. And over the last year, we’ve seen conservative leaders from state to state do just that. In the most crucial issue facing America, some unlikely places have led the way.
Conservative-lead states have sought to undermine Biden’s toxic, leftist agenda. Florida, for instance, has fought back against Biden’s radical mandates and requirements. They have helped fight his open border agenda. And they are even addressing the supply shortage Biden helped create.
Two Republican states recently passed laws that directly challenge one of the left’s biggest treasures. And both will be going before the Supreme Court soon. Democrats are panicked over how the court will rule, thanks to Trump’s conservative majority.
The court will hear arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson and United States v. Texas, both of which challenge the Texas abortion law.
On Monday, the court will deliberate on concerns around the structure of the Texas law rather than consider whether the law violates Roe v. Wade…
On December 1, the court will consider a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy…

The Supreme Court is set to hear arguments over Texas’ pro-life law this week. The court famously refused to block the law from going into effect September 1—triggering every abortion-loving Democrat on the planet. They also refused to block it when they agreed to take up the case themselves, after lower courts offered their opinions.
It will also take up the case against Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, which had been the most restrictive abortion law, until Texas passed theirs. The state had previously revealed it passed the law to specifically challenge Roe v. Wade, hoping it would go to the Supreme Court.
These cases come as the court enjoys a 6-3 conservative majority. Chief Justice Roberts (a Bush appointee) has acted as an unexpected swing vote, but if all of the conservative justices voted together, he still wouldn’t be able to sway a ruling.
Since the court has reconvened last month, things have changed. In their post-COVID session, where they have resumed in-person hearings, Justice Thomas has become more vocal. The longtime conservative lion has apparently taken a greater leadership role on the court and his influence could have a profound impact on how the court rules.
The outcome of these two rulings could determine the fate of abortion in the United States. The court might not overturn the original ruling that made abortion legal, but their decisions could give states greater power to determine abortion restrictions within their own borders. This could open the door to many more conservative states banning the practice altogether.
What kind of world will that be like?
