‘Reason For Optimism’: Mississippi Governor Hopeful Roe Will Be Overturned, Defends State’s Pro-Life Law

Mississippi Republican Governor Tate Reeves said he had some “optimism” that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade, adding that he would “do everything I can to protect the lives of unborn children.”

Reeves was interviewed on CNN where he discussed the oral arguments made before the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which is a challenge to a pro-life Mississippi statute which prohibits the abortion of an unborn child after 15 weeks. 

“If you believe, as I believe very strongly, that innocent unborn child in the mother’s womb is, in fact, a child, the most important word when we talk about unborn children is not unborn, but it’s children,” the governor said. “And so, yes, I will do everything I can to protect the lives of those children.”

The Supreme Court could possibly overturn Roe in this case, which would allow Mississippi’s law to stay implemented. Reeves noted that he had “some reason for optimism” that the 1973 abortion ruling would be overturned. Nearly 60 million unborn babies have been aborted since that case.
