Roe v. Wade Struck Down!
Washington, D.C., June 24, 2022
🚨 MAJOR NEWS: The Supreme Court has just OVERTURNED Roe v. Wade! This will allow states to handle the issue themselves, ending more than 49 years of heartbreaking federal precedent.
Today is a historic moment for our nation!
The current case before the Supreme Court was from an abortionist in Mississippi that had sued over a state law banning abortions after 15 weeks. In today’s ruling, the Supreme Court struck down its Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, calling that ruling “egregiously wrong and deeply damaging.” Justices went on to say that “Roe’s constitutional analysis was far outside the bounds of any reasonable interpretation of the various constitutional provisions to which it vaguely pointed.”
These quotes from today’s ruling are 100% correct.
We need to be careful to understand what this means. Today’s decision striking down Roe v. Wade does not ban abortions on the federal level, despite what some people claim. Instead, today’s ruling will simply allow states to handle the issue themselves, without federal interference, as should have been the case all along.
This is outstanding news.
Friends, when we celebrate pro-life victories like this, we should not do so in a way that causes emotional pain to those women who have had an abortion. Nor should we back down from being unapologetically pro-life.
I believe that abortion as a matter of convenience or everyday birth control is wrong. I’m glad to live in a state where the vast majority of people feel the same, and am thrilled that the Supreme Court has struck down Roe v. Wade, allowing states to chart their own path forward on this important issue.
What a fantastic day for our nation, and for the Pro-Life movement!
