Donald Trump rally LIVE — Former President to speak in Illinois amid Roe v Wade abortion ban | The Sun

FORMER President Donald Trump is headlining a rally in central Illinois to further endorsed Mary Miller in a GOP House race.

Trump has shown continued support for Representative Mary Miller, who is running against incumbent Representative Rodney Davis.

Miller is running for the 15th Congressional District, which was created this year by Democratic state lawmakers, reports Newsweek.

This comes as the country is reacting to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe V Wade.

On Friday, Miller shared a video on her social media showing support for the SCOTUS decision and thanking Trump.

"We applaud President Trump for doing what he said he was going to do and appoint Supreme Court justices who value life.

    What happened with Roe V Wade, continued

    O'Brien told The US Sun that Thomas's concurrence "basically says: Okay, we’ve gotten rid of Roe V. Wade, but we should get rid of all the cases that rely on substantive due process."

    "Here’s what it means: The courts have used the due process clause of the Constitution to establish important rights like the right to privacy.

    "Thomas is saying that these rights should be rolled back as well. So other cases are now on the chopping block."

    What happened with Roe V Wade?

    Friday's 5-4 decision hands the issue of abortion off to each state, and technical, legal language in 26 states means abortion bans will be implemented immediately or within 90 days.

    Former federal assistant district attorney Kevin O'Brien looked closely at the language of conservative Justice Clarence Thomas' decision.

    Thomas argued that the legal rationale could be applied to other precedent-setting cases and specifically mentioned Griswold v. Connecticut, Lawrence v. Texas and Obergefell v. Hodges.

    The cases said Americans had a right to contraception, have sex with the people of the same gender and legalized same sex marriage, respectively.

    "We should reconsider all of this Court's substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell," Thomas wrote.

    "Because any substantive due process decision is 'demonstrably erroneous.'"

    Impact of Roe V Wade

    Trump has boasted the decision to overturn Roe V Wade was made possible because he "delivered everything as promised" by putting three justices on the bench.

    Trump nominated Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court

    "These major Victories prove that even though the Radical Left is doing everything in their power to destroy our Country, your Rights are being protected, the Country is being defended, and there is still hope and time to Save America!" Trump said in a Friday statement.
