Alert: Supreme Court Hears Mississippi Law That Bans Almost All Abortions  December 1

On December 1 the Supreme Court will hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, where the state of Mississippi had specifically asked the Court to overrule its landmark decisions in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which hold that the Constitution protects the right to have an abortion before the fetus can survive outside the womb.

The Mississippi law restricts abortion after 15 weeks with no exception for rape or incest and makes abortion illegal two months before a fetus becomes viable (meaning it can survive outside the womb).

The Supreme Court now has a majority of Christian fascist appointees, with Trump’s appointments of Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett joining others like Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and John Roberts. If they uphold the Mississippi anti-abortion law, the Constitutional right to abortion will be overturned—immediately made illegal in 24 states that already have “trigger” bans in place.

We are at a tipping point where the most fundamental right of a woman to control her own reproductive decisions will be taken away and will be under siege even in states where it remains legal, by a fascist GOP that sees banning abortion as the opening step to putting women back in their “God-given” place—with birth control, divorce, and the civil rights of LGBTQ people as next in their fanatical Christian theocratic crosshairs.

On December 1 the Women’s March has called for protests in Washington, DC to surround the Supreme Court and hold the line. If you are not near DC, be part of organizing protests, speak-outs, sticker days, etc. where you are (materials available online).

Revolutionaries should join in making this as powerful and determined as possible, bringing to this that this fight is part of an overall fight over what kind of future we will have.

Bob Avakian, revolutionary leader and the author of the new communism who has been analyzing the development of the conflicts at the top of society and throughout it for the past 40 years, has said, “It is not conceivable that all this will find any resolution other than in the most radical terms and through extremely violent means. The question yet to be determined is: will it be a radical reactionary or a radical revolutionary resolution, will it mean the reinforcing of the chains of enslavement or the shattering of the most decisive links in those chains and the opening up of the possibility of realizing the complete elimination of all forms of such enslavement?

Anyone who cares that we are at a tipping point of which way this will be resolved needs to step into this revolution now.
