History was made today, June 24, 2022. The United States Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade.
Abortion will now go back to the state level where it has always belonged.
The American people will finally have a say on the issue through their elected representatives.
The Associated Press reports:
Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade; states can ban abortion
The Supreme Court on Friday stripped away women’s constitutional protections for abortion, a fundamental and deeply personal change for Americans’ lives after nearly a half-century under Roe v. Wade. The court’s overturning of the landmark court ruling is likely to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states.
The ruling, unthinkable just a few years ago, was the culmination of decades of efforts by abortion opponents, made possible by an emboldened right side of the court fortified by three appointees of former President Donald Trump.
Both sides predicted the fight over abortion would continue, in state capitals, in Washington and at the ballot box. Justice Clarence Thomas, part of Friday’s majority, urged colleagues to overturn other high court rulings protecting same-sex marriage, gay sex and the use of contraceptives.
Pregnant women considering abortions already had been dealing with a near-complete ban in Oklahoma and a prohibition after roughly six weeks in Texas. Clinics in at least eight other states — Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, South Dakota, Wisconsin and West Virginia — stopped performing abortions after Friday’s decision.
Pro-life people celebrated.
This is one of the greatest days in American history. Praise God.

When nearly any other Republican President would have folded to the pressure from the left and the media, Donald J. Trump stood by Kavanaugh and refused to budge.
And today, conservatives just got our biggest win from the Supreme Court in a generation.

People on the left are losing their minds, as you can probably imagine.
