Roe Vs. Wade May Be Sent to the Supreme Court Very Soon

Abortion, Rundown, US Politics

A murder case in Alabama may be the reason behind pushing the controversial and twice affirmed Roe Vs. Wade decision back into the supreme court of the United States.

When Jessie Livell Phillips murdered his wife who was eight months pregnant, the state of Alabama pursued a conviction of double homicide against him under the state’s fetal homicide laws which treat unborn children as humans in cases of murder, manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, and assault.

Justice Tom Parker of the Alabama Supreme Court, who upheld the conviction of double homicide against Jessie Livell Phillips, claimed that it was a logical fallacy to consider an unborn child to be a human when dealing with murder charges, but not in the case of abortion.

This case could potentially be pushed to the supreme court sooner than most expected it to and could lead to the third affirmation or overturning of the initial ruling.
