Supreme Court Declines To Hear Case Over Whether Unborn Babies Have Constitutional Rights

  • The U.S. Supreme court turned away a case Tuesday that would determine if unborn children are entitled to have constitutional rights following the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade last summer.
  • After justices overturned the Roe decision in June, the plaintiffs asked the Supreme Court to consider the case.
  • “This Court should grant the writ to finally determine whether prenatal life, at any gestational age, enjoys constitutional protection – considering the full and comprehensive history and tradition of our Constitution and law supporting personhood for unborn human beings,” the petitioners wrote.
