Pro-life organizations are weighing in on what is expected to be a landmark case at the Supreme Court that could overturn Roe v. Wade, which made abortion the law of the land decades ago.
According to a report in Breitbart News, the groups who have been working for years to overturn the law that has allowed for the death of tens of millions, are praising the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the Texas abortion ban to stand while they hear Whole Women’s Health v. Jackson.
“The decision by the U.S. Supreme Court this morning to allow the Texas abortion law to remain in effect is very encouraging,” Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director, CEO and Founder of And Then There Were None, said in a statement. “It has given the opportunity for life to thousands more unborn babies.”
“I’m very hopeful the Justices are poised to rule favorably in Dobbs, delivering the decision of abortion back to the states, where more than half will immediately ban the procedure,” Johnson said referring to the other notable abortion case currently in the court, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which is an attack on Mississippi’s 15-week ban on abortion.
Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino posted her reaction to the SCOTUS decision on Twitter:
“With today’s controlling opinion in Whole Women’s Health, it was refreshing to see the Court rightly address procedural questions about SB8 and its jurisdiction as such. Could the days of the Court’s ‘abortion distortion’ jurisprudence finally be behind us? I’m optimistic,” Severino said.
“After being subjected to continuous intimidation and fearmongering from the Left, the Court’s five constitutionalists showed an unwavering commitment to applying the law to the facts before them, and an unwillingness to expand Article III standing, as they were asked to do
“The plurality (Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett) and Thomas disagreed only about SB8’s saving clause, each opinion applying good faith textualist methodology but reaching a different conclusion as to whether federal suit may be brought against the licensing officials.
“The Court’s dismissal of DOJ’s suit as improvidently granted further illustrates what has become increasingly clear: Merrick Garland is not the moderate he was presented to be when he was nominated, and runs a department that has been radically politicized.
“Litigation regarding SB8 will continue, both in Texas state court and against licensing officials in federal court. It’s a reminder of the chaos that Roe and Casey created, and the importance that those precedents be overturned.”
Family Policy Alliance government affairs director Nicole Hudgens also made a statement about the court’s decision:
“Today, the Court has ensured that more Texas children will have the chance to celebrate a birthday. We celebrate today’s victory with our friends in Texas, and eagerly await the day when every child across America has a chance to celebrate a birthday.”
“By dismissing the Biden-Harris administration’s attack on preborn children – and the attacks of many others – the Court has sent a clear signal that life is winning,” the Alliance press release on the decision said.
