On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume argued that “all-out challenges, head-on challenges to Roe v. Wade” like Alabama’s abortion ban will not succeed at this time.
Hume began by saying, “I think, in the long run, that’s — the pro-life side will win.”
He later added, “I also don’t think this Alabama gambit is going to work. And the reason I think that is, that it will get to a trial court…and a judge, bound by Roe v. Wade, will strike it down. It will get to an appellate court, and it — and I don’t think it will be reversed there. The Supreme Court will then, in my judgment, decline to hear it, and that will be that. So, I think Missouri may be on to something. … But I don’t think these all-out challenges, head-on challenges to Roe v. Wade will work right now.”
