As pro-life advocates rejoice, abortion activists vent, seethe, and devise ways for their political allies to circumvent the Supreme Court decision allowing states to protect the unborn at younger stages of their lives. "It's a sad day for the court and for the country," said President Joe Biden, who called the ruling "a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court."
The Supreme Court dealt a major blow to abortion extremism on Friday, striking down the arbitrary restriction the Left has used to prevent voters from enacting laws to protect the most vulnerable. Relying on judicial brute force for five decades may have degraded some abortion supporters' reasoning abilities, judging from their reactions. Here are a few of the most egregious comments made about the pro-life Dobbs ruling.
"We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled." With these words, nearly half a century's worth of prayer, lobbying, campaigning, and legislating has come to fruition. In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade. Moving forward, the American people, through their elected representatives, will have the power to defend unborn children. \r
The nation is now digesting the 79-page Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization ruling that overthrows Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. Critics are panicking as if this means abortion is now illegal. But this decision does not make abortion illegal. What it strives to do is return to Americans what the pro-abortion Roe and Casey decisions stole from them: the right to decide the fate of abortion state by state.
After two generations of prayer, activism, and tireless organizing, pro-life advocates rejoiced Friday morning as the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. "While we are grateful that the tyranny of Roe has ended, we are mindful of the solemnity of this moment," Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said. "What the Court has done is an act of repentance, out of which we bring forth the fruit of repentance, rebuilding a culture of life in America."
