The World Turns as Roe V. Wade is Overturned

“Roe was on a collision course with the Constitution from the day it was decided,” remarked Justice Alito in the opinion of the Court, which overturned Roe by a 5-4 ruling. The opinion continued, “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.” The 79-page opinion delivered by Justice Alito, which was joined by Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Coney Barrett, declares, “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives. ‘The permissibility of abortion, and the limitations, upon it, are to be resolved like most important questions in our democracy: by citizens trying to persuade one another and then voting.’ …That is what the Constitution and the rule of law demand.” Justice Roberts’ opinion agreed with the majority in the case but called for a narrow decision rather than overturning Roe. Justices Breyer, Sotomayor and Kagan dissented. The historic ruling marks a pivotal moment in our divided post-Roe nation and a victory for the pro-life movement.
