Supreme Court prepares for new term by looking back, with likely impact on 2024 elections
The Supreme Court is preparing for a new term and looking back at previous landmark decisions that could shape the law in the years to come. With the court set to hear cases on incendiary issues such as abortion, religious liberty, and the 2020 presidential election, it is likely that the upcoming term will have a profound impact on the 2024 elections.
One key area of focus for the Court is the upcoming case of Doe v. Harris, which deals with whether California’s “Gender Change Recognition Act” gives people the right to change their gender on official government documents and IDs without medical certification. This decision could have a major impact on the debate over transgender rights, with potential implications for issues like bathroom access, healthcare, and employment discrimination.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is expected to hear cases challenging the Affordable Care Act and seeking to clarify the scope of religious liberty laws. It will also hear a challenge to Pennsylvania’s Mail-in Ballot law that was issued amid the coronavirus pandemic. The eventual ruling could have an impact on how states choose to administer their upcoming elections.
Whatever the outcome, the Supreme Court’s decisions in the upcoming term will have a lasting impact on U.S. laws and politics for years to come. With the 2024 election on the horizon, these decisions could play a major role in shaping the political landscape and the issues on which American voters will decide.
