WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court’s conservative majority justices are signaling they will allow states to ban abortion much earlier in pregnancy. And they’re indicating they may go even further to overturn the nationwide Roe v. Wade right that has existed for nearly 50 years. After nearly two hours of arguments on Wednesday, all six conservative justices, including three appointed by former President Donald Trump, indicated they would uphold a Mississippi law that is in question. That law is much more restrictive than the landmark Roe v. Wade court ruling of 1973. At the very least, upholding the Mississippi law would undermine Roe. And several justices indicated they are ready to get rid of Roe outright. A decision is expected next June.
