Supreme Court Justices PULL RUG Out From Under Democrats
(USNewsBreak.com) – On the morning of June 24, the US Supreme Court released its opinion about Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization regarding a Mississippi ban on abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy. The court decided by a 6-to-3 vote to uphold the law, essentially overturning Roe v. Wade and returning the abortion rights question to the states.

SCOTUS ruled there was no constitutional right to abortion. Fox News reported on Justice Samuel Alito’s statement, which called the procedure a “profound moral question” best left to governments to decide at the state level. Justice Alito wrote that he believed Roe v. Wade was “egregiously wrong” from the beginning because of its weak reasoning.
The court’s desire was to return the abortion issue back to the hands of elected officials who could be voted out of office if they failed to represent the will of their constituents. People who live in states not representing their beliefs have two choices: garner enough support from like-minded individuals to vote politicians out of office or move to an area that aligns more with their views on abortion. Given the number of impoverished communities, inflation, home prices, and rent, the idea of relocating is impossible for many.
In response to the opinion, pro-choice protests have erupted across the nation. Even so, with the decision set in stone, the outcry will do nothing to reverse the ruling. Multiple states, including but not limited to Idaho, South Dakota, and Tennessee, already had trigger laws ready to go into effect if Roe v. Wade was overturned. Other states are also expected to introduce abortion bans and regulations in the wake of the ruling.
What do you think this decision will mean for the United States going forward?
