So if the job of the Supreme Court it to see whether a law is constitutional or not, what if a constitutional amendment is added AFTER the Supreme Court Made a decision(say a new amendment makes abortion illegal, but roe v wade)?
Once an amendment is ratified by the states, it becomes an equal part of the supreme law of the land that such Supreme Court decisions are based on. Until then, if you don’t like abortion, don’t get one. It really is that easy, and its no one else’s business either way.
I didn’t mean to make it about abortions, just the first thing that popped into my head for an example
The constitution overrides the Supreme Court. And the constitution cannot contradict itself
An amendment takes precedence over a court decision. If the court rules an abortion law goes against the constitution, but a constitutional amendment is subsequently passed, however unlikely, a new decision may be made on that law through appeal.
I believe that just as an amendment changes the constitution, it also then trumps a prior Supreme Court decision.
The Constitution is not written in stone. It is a living document and needs to be interpreted based on the times. Things are a changing.
