MSNBC legal analyst Danny Cevallos told the “Morning Joe” panel Wednesday that with Alabama’s enactment of the most restrictive anti-abortion bill in the country, there’s a good chance it could eventually lead to Roe v. Wade being overturned by the Supreme Court.

“This is about the Supreme Court Justice [Brett Kavanaugh]. You’ve heard it from activists inside the state of Alabama. One saying, quote, ‘Why not go all the way?’ This was not possible until this moment. We feel like we’ve got a chance. If this makes it to the Supreme Court, to overturn Roe v. Wade,” host Willie Geist said.

The article goes on to state the following:

“There is a very good chance if this makes it to the Supreme Court that Roe v. Wade would be overturned because we’ve known since the ‘70s that Roe v. Wade stands on a weak foundational basis,” Cevallos said. “Whether you’re pro-life or pro-choice, Roe v. Wade is really about, do we have an individual, fundamental — do women have a privacy right in the Constitution that overrides state legislatures’ abilities to make laws affecting abortion.

“It is interesting to note, the year 1900, almost every state prohibited abortion. By the time Roe v. Wadewas decided, it was down to 30 states. The trend was that abortion … prohibiting abortion was going away. But now, by giving it to the Supreme Court, it creates a precedent that can be overturned, and the bottom line is that even if you are pro-choice, the right to privacy does not exist, either in the history or the text of the Constitution, which is why Roe has always been ripe to be overturned,” he said.

    They shouldn’t be worried, they have Ruth Bader Ginsburg on their side. Never mind the fact that no one has seen the old woman in public in months. She reported to still be alive but who really knows? If she’s not there to give her vote, she should be declared dead and let POTUS put another judge on the bench. #WheresRuth?
