Abortion access and gun rights among 29 cases left in Supreme Court term

The Supreme Court announced this week it will release opinions on Monday and Wednesday amid a slower-than-usual pace for the court's work ever since the May 2 leak to the press of the draft opinion for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which signaled the majority of justices were in favor of giving states the right to make laws severely limiting abortion access.

Here are the top five cases to watch for in the coming weeks as the court is slated to conclude its term by the first days of July.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization

Perhaps one of the most anticipated rulings of this term will be the decision in Dobbs, a lawsuit between the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi and the state itself.

The case relates to a Mississippi law passed in 2018 that prohibits abortion procedures after 15 weeks of pregnancy, with Jackson Women’s Health Organization suing the state to stop its implementation.

Does anyone know the racial percentages of the babies that Jackson Women’s Health Organization has killed so far this year?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Another group of decisions will be released Monday and Wednesday.  Let's hope they unload the Dobbs case as soon as possible.

Carson v. Makin

Justices heard arguments in Carson v. Makin in December, a free-exercise challenge to a scholarship program in Maine that pays for some students to attend private schools but excludes from the program schools that provide any kind of religious instruction.

The court will examine a previous ruling related to the topic and determine if any religious freedoms and equal protection clauses were violated.

This case is similar to Everson v. Board of Education (1947).  In that case, the court sided with the State who was using public school funds to bus kids to private parochial schools.  In this case, the State is denying public school funds for parochial schools.  With Everson, the Court ruled that New Jersey did not violate the Establishment Clause.  But with Carson, the Court would have to rule that Maine is violating equal protection.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
