If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed as a U.S. Supreme Court justice, one of the cases he could help decide would set a pro-life precedent.

The Unborn Infants Dignity Act was signed into law in 2016, but the federal court system soon rejected it as unconstitutional.

“The Dignity for the Unborn Act provides civil rights protections for unborn babies based upon a variety of factors, including their race, their gender, whether they have a disability, Down syndrome, [and] even national origin,” explains Mike Fichter of Indiana Right to Life. “So this is at its core protecting and acknowledging the civil rights for the unborn child.”

Indiana has announced it will be asking the Supreme Court to accept the appeal because, after all, the court has taken cases in the past that deal with civil rights of people who have been born, including issues like race, gender, and disabilities.

“This could be just a momentous ruling by the court,” Fichter asserts. “Of course the court is not forced to accept the appeal on this, so we are praying that the court will accept it and that it will result in an historic ruling.”

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and the American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit against the pro-life measure.
