Mississippi Gov. Reeves: Hoping Court Upholds Abortion Ban, Tosses Roe v. Wade

GOP Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves said Sunday if the Supreme Court upholds his state’s strict 15-week abortion ban on abortion, he hopes they’ll overturn the historical 1973 decision that made abortion legal across the country as well.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Reeves said he believes “as do many Americans” that the justices could “look at the Roe v. Wade case and come to the conclusion that the court just simply got it wrong in 1973.”

“There’s nothing in the Constitution that prohibits individual states from enacting their own laws,” Reeves added. “After all, that’s really what the Founding Fathers intended for any issue that is not explicit in the Constitution, it should be left to the states and the state legislatures and democratic process. I just want to make sure everyone is clear that if Roe v. Wade is overturned, that doesn’t mean that no one in America is going to have access — although that might make people like me happy.”
