(ReliableNews.org) – The Supreme Court is currently deliberating about whether to overturn or severely limit the 1973 Roe v. Wade precedent that legalized abortion. One Arizona representative is now speaking out about the issue and he argues the procedure is unconstitutional.
On December 10, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) sat down for an interview on Newsmax’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.” He discussed abortion, saying the unborn already have constitutional rights when they are in utero. He explained, “The first right is the right to life,” and since fetuses are alive, they have constitutional rights.
Unborn children are finally being protected. Please pray that this trend continues until Roe v Wade is struck down. May God forgive us for allowing it to stand this long. 🙏💫 https://t.co/OSIebO6Mwh

Biggs went on to say that when the SCOTUS set the Roe precedent they allowed lower courts to take away the constitutional rights of unborn babies. “They’re human beings in the womb,” he said. Fortunately, he has been pleased to see states pushing back and passing laws to protect the unborn. That, he said, is “the true federalism that [America] is meant to have.”
One of the states protecting the right to life is Mississippi. The state passed a ban on abortions after 15 weeks of gestation. A lower court blocked the law from going into effect and now the Supreme Court is deciding whether it will reverse that ruling. If it does, either it will overturn Roe completely or the fetal viability standard will be moved back roughly nine weeks, opening the door for states to pass strict laws regulating the procedure.
