Roe v. Wade Overturned
After 50 years, and 63 million murdered babies, Roe has finally been defeated.
I am rejoicing this morning. Frankly, it has been two days of really great news coming out of the Supreme Court. First was Thursday’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, upholding the Second Amendment, and then Friday’s decision on Dobbs v. Mississippi Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. This ends the federal right to abortion, and sends the decision on how and when abortions happen back where it belongs: to the states.
After the leak of the draft opinion and the scary fomenting of outrage from the Left with their destruction of property and protests in front of Justice’s homes, I was not sure that what was written in the draft opinion—the overthrow of Roe and Casey—would stand.
But the Justices did the work of interpreting the law and upholding the Constitution. Life made a way, and justice for the unborn was obtained.
For those of us who uphold Life, this is a point of celebration. But in celebrating, we have to remember our work is not done. We were not just pro-life in the age of Roe. Post-Roe our stand for Life must be just as vigilant, and take on different form and action.
I discuss this over at RedState in my latest piece: How We Continue to Protect Life in a Post-Roe World.
More on this over the weekend, as well as an interview for our paid subscribers with one of the writers of the book, Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words.
