The Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade and return abortion laws to states showed that the court did not cave to extreme liberal pressures.
The May draft decision leak led to numerous protests, including demonstrations at the homes of the court’s justices.

“A former high court clerk for Alito, Sherif Girgis, told the Washington Examiner he thinks the final ruling is ‘identical in almost all respects, except for the addition of those paragraphs responding to the dissent’ from the court’s three Democratic-appointed justices,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“The fact that there were no changes suggests that while people obviously have predictable disagreements with the substance of the legal analysis, or they think that the legal factors cut in a different direction, there were basically no identified objective errors in terms of historical claims that are easily rebutted and that were rebutted,” Girgis added in the report.
JUST IN: Mississippi’s only abortion clinic just filed a lawsuit to block the state from enforcing its Roe v. Wade trigger ban.
“The Mississippi Constitution protects a right to abortion,” the lawsuit says, pointing to a 1998 State Supreme Court ruling.https://t.co/XL56O0goO4

The ruling has not stopped pro-abortion supporters from an outcry against the verdict. In Mississippi, the state where the pro-life case originated, the only abortion clinic has already sued to stop a trigger law from going into effect.
Nationwide, numerous demonstrations took place over the weekend in frustration over the ruling, including some acts of vandalism.
In Michigan, a pro-life center was attacked this week. The state’s Democratic governor has yet to condemn the violence.

The trend of violence when losing is becoming a concerning new norm of the left.
Despite numerous acts of vandalism since the May leak, the court stood firm, offering a major win for life.
