Law professor Alan Dershowitz on Fox News called out the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade as judicial activism.
During an interview with Sean Hannity on Friday after the decision, Dershowitz stated that the court overstepped its authority by deciding on a question that was not before the court.
The Mississippi case before the court raised the question of whether a 15-week ban was constitutional.
“I do think the Supreme Court should never have had to reach beyond the 15 weeks. That’s what was before the Supreme Court,” Dershowitz told Sean Hannity. “Why did the Supreme Court have to jump into this and say, ‘We’re not going to decide the case before us. We’re going to ban Roe vs. Wade, overrule it, and allow states… to abolish abortion completely’? That was judicial activism, overreaching. And Sean, you oppose judicial activism.”
