Mississippi Governor Says Fetuses Could Live Outside Womb at Only 15 Weeks

Donald Trump’s presidency was impactful in numerous methods. His most long enduring actions, however, may be in the courts. Not just did he position 3 Conservative justices on the Supreme Court, he designated Republican judges all over the United States.

And red states have actually been pressing recently to reverse Roe vs. Wade. Tate Reeves, the Mississippi guv appeared on CNN this weekend to discuss the efforts.

Reeves informed Jake Tapper, “For people such as myself that are pro-life, I believe that the Supreme Court made a mistake [by upholding abortion rights] in the 1970s. But that’s not the issue at stake that is before the court, hopefully when the arguments are heard sometime in the fall.”

The red state guv continued:

“The fact is we know so much more in America today about the formation of young [fetuses] in the womb than we did when Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. And what we know now, Jake, is that we know that the heart partially formed at 15 weeks. We know that the [fetus] in the womb is practicing breathing. We know that most internal organs have started to form and we believe that child is viable outside the womb.”

Naturally, we don’t understand that. The youngest early child to ever make it through was born at 21 weeks old. Tapper, nevertheless, did not press back on the claims Reeves made throughout the broadcast.
