God Wins! Roe v. Wade Overturned!
by Shari Dovale
The Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade today in a decision that returned the issue of abortion laws and regulations to state legislatures.
Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the Supreme Court in Friday’s 5-4 decision:
Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return the authority to the people and their elected representatives.
The opponents of this decision made known their views after the unprecedented leak of this decision came several weeks ago. Since the leak was made to Politico, pro-life organizations and churches have been targets of arson, vandalism and threats almost daily. LifeNews has been keeping track of the growing hostility, listing more than 60 incidents since early May.
There have been continued threats from the pro-abortion extremist group Jane’s Revenge. Flyers have popped up demanding riots.
Multiple states have prepared for this decision, with Trigger Laws in place to take effect after the SCOTUS decision is made final. These states include: Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
According to WaPo, 13 states have Roe v Wade trigger laws:
Without the landmark precedent in place, the national abortion landscape will change quickly. First, 13 states with “trigger bans,” designed to take effect as soon as Roe is overturned, will ban abortion within 30 days. Several other states where recent antiabortion legislation has been blocked by the courts are expected to act next, with lawmakers moving to activate their dormant legislation. A handful of states also have pre-Roe abortion bans that could be brought back to life.
What the Left does not want to remember is that overturning Roe v Wade does NOT ban abortions. It simply returns the decision to the states. Abortions will be EXPANDING in many blue states as a result. The practice of killing babies has not stopped, it just is not allowed at the Federal level.
The case is Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, No. 19-1392 in the Supreme Court of the United States.
