Life wins as Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade:
In a historic decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has overturned its controversial Roe v. Wade opinion, which established a constitutional right to abortion in 1973.
“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the majority in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a case concerning a Mississippi law that, with few exceptions, bans abortions after 15 weeks.
The court upheld the Mississippi law, which was challenged as unconstitutional under the Supreme Court precedents established in Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992).
Emphasizing that abortion "presents a profound moral question," Alito's opinion finds that the Constitution "does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating and prohibiting abortion."
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division," Alito wrote. --->READ MORE HERE

Abortion clinics shutter in pro-life states following Supreme Court decision:
Abortion clinics in multiple states where pro-life laws are now, or will soon be, in effect ceased operations Friday after the Supreme Court overturned its Roe v. Wade decision.
In a 6-3 decision for Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the court upheld a Mississippi law that bans abortion procedures after 15 weeks or pregnancy, ruling that the Constitution does not protect a woman's right to kill her unborn child. The ruling lets states individually decide how they will regulate abortion, if at all, opening the door for at least 26 states with pro-life governments to enact new limits on abortion.
In some states that already have pro-life laws on the books, including so-called trigger laws that will now go into effect after the court's decision, abortion clinics have already halted scheduled abortion procedures and closed their doors.
Texas, for example, has a law that will ban most abortions from the moment of conception forward, excepting medical emergencies where the life of the mother is at risk. State Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) announced Friday that the law will go into effect in 30 days after the court issues its judgement in Dobbs — a judgement is a legal document to be issued by the court that is separate from its opinion, which was released Friday. --->READ MORE HERE
