Hume: I Don’t Think ‘Head-on’ Challenges to Roe Like AL Law ‘Will Work Right Now’

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.”
