Emotions clash one year after Roe v. Wade was overturned

 June 25, 2023

This past Saturday marked one year since the Supreme Court came down with a landmark decision that overturned Roe v. Wade

The Associated Press noted that the occasion was characterized by celebration from pro-life advocates and anger from those who support abortion.

Vice President Kamala Harris says ruling will create "a healthcare crisis"

Among those to speak up was Vice President Kamala Harris, who tweeted that "365 days after the Dobbs decision, we stand together to advance the promise of freedom."

"That includes the freedom of every woman to make decisions about her own body – not having the government tell her what to do," she added.

The tweet included a video of Harris speaking at an event in North Carolina, Charlotte where she said that the ruling "would create a healthcare crisis in America."

Trump says he is "proud to be the most pro-life president in American history"

Meanwhile, the Associated Press quoted an attendee at a Washington, D.C. march who said, "I’m absolutely livid that people think that they can interfere with medical decisions between a woman and her doctor."

However, the occasion was hailed by many conservatives, including former President Donald Trump, who spoke on Saturday evening at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington.

"I am proud to be the most pro-life president in American history," the former president told those in attendance while also touting the three justices he appointed to the Supreme Court.

"Exactly one year ago today, those justices were the pivotal votes in the Supreme Court’s landmark decision ending the constitutional atrocity known as Roe v. Wade," he stressed.

Pro-life student group: "Love them both"

The pro-life group Students for Life tweeted out a video from the day that Roe was overturned in which its members could be seen chanting, "Love them both."

"The Constitution does not protect a right to abortion," Students for Life president Kristan Hawkins declared after the ruling had been announced.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
