Supreme Court Overrules Roe v. Wade in Mississippi Abortion Case

JTN: The Supreme Court on Friday strikes down the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wadecase, which for nearly half-a-century has offered a constitutional protection to a woman’s right to an abortion.

The majority opinion, issued in the Mississippi case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Healthwas written by Justice Samuel Alito and joined by fellow conservative Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas and Amy Coney Barrett. 

Chief Justice John Roberts, who filed a concurring opinion, wrote that he agrees “with the Court that the viability line established by Roe and Casey should be discarded under a straightforward state decided analysis. That line never made any sense.”

The court’s final 6-3 decision overturns Roe and subsequent the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Caseydecision, which largely upheld the initial right. 

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” wrote Alito in a first draft of the now official decision that was leaked in early May. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.” MORE

  1. Only made possible by President Trump and his appointees. This is why some of us realized the God worked through this man. Even with his faults.

  2. Roe vs Wade overturned! A beautiful day for life, babies and our country. With all the evil we see in our world today, this shows that God is in control.

    ‘If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.’
    2 Chronicles 7:14 King James

  3. PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!

    I’m in tears. Oh, my God in Heaven, this is for you! We have prayed and you helped us defeat the evil! God help the states ban abortions now! Have mercy on us and our precious unborn children! Amen

    38
  4. CBS News assholes that interrupted Let’s Make A Deal for their crappy report kept harping about those at the Poverty Level would be hurt the most. The women at this level need to be taught to keep their legs together, instead of having Unprotected Sex. A number of them do it in exchange for dope & or money anyway.

    25
  5. Amen, amen, amen! In many states, right now, abortion is illegal, thanks to laws passed and just waiting for this moment.

    In other states, like mine (CA) the butchery will be ramped up. Will mean more work for those of us who have prayed outside PP clinics for years. I’m looking forward to that.

    22
  6. Churches and pregnancy centers prepare for violence.
    The abortion goons are gassing up their Molotov Cocktails at this very moment. Be on high alert!

    12
  7. I’ll say one thing about the Democrats, their alacrity at crafting a message for public dissemination is laudatory.

    The wicked witch of the west is already declaring the next election a referendum on the protection of women’s rights, repeating the lie that this decision just outlawed abortion. On the low information, easily cowed and swayed voter will believe this nonsense.

    13
  8. We are going to witness wailing, gnashing of teeth and rending of garments bigly. They are going make the Democrats’ reaction to the overturning of THEIR Dred Scott decision look like a day at the park.

    12
  9. Yes Virginia, there is a GOD and his power and justice are AWESOME !!!!!
    Many prayers have been answered on this special day. Also, for those Catholics, I can’t think of a better day for this abomination to be overturned than on the Feast Of the Sacred Heart of Our Lord.

    19
  10. Hallelujah, praise the Lord God Almighty. The genocide will stop and many precious children will now live.

    The satanucally imposed abomination known as Roe v Wade is no longer.

    Praise the Lord! Thank you Jesus…

    13
  11. Cleaning up a lot of judicial messes created by activist judges. We have the man who got the most LEGITIMATE votes for President of the United States EVER to thank for this DESPITE the questionable honor of some of his SCOTUS appointments.

    The one that will come down today will be tantamount to the overturning of the Dred Scott travesty foisted on the United States by the Democrats.

  12. Go armed tonight if you don’t do so already.

    Satan will not take kindly to his bloody sacrifice being interrupted.

  13. “Justice Thomas wrote, “In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell,” the decisions that established rights to contraception, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriage.”

    Please, big-brained legal scholar here, what does this mean?

    6
  14. Thank you President Obama for making fun of Trump in 2011. Had it not been for your arrogance and disdain for the American People and your total ineptitude, Donald Trump may have never run for the office.

    16
  15. Progressives always tell you EXACTLY what they stand for. They are going to define themselves in the coming hours. Anyone who doesn’t recognize Satan at work, doesn’t want to face reality.

    11
  16. Ah. Does Thomas mean that the Court should (will?) take the same approach to constitutionally-guaranteed same-sex marriage contraception, and same-sex relationships as they just took regarding Roe v. Wade? Holy smoke!

    8
  17. I imagine REgressive states will see a big uptick in providing abortions for out of state residents. None the less, this is a joyous day, 10s of 1,000s of lives will be saved.

  18. Wonderful day in America. I don’t care what is burned down, the decision has been made, and the right decision. Today, the unborn gets a second chance.

    15
  19. I’m still extremely suspect of our gov’t, including the SCOTUS. WHY did they time the decision to announce it on the 2nd day of summer? Why not in the deep of winter, under rain, sleet and snow, when it is much harder for rioters to rouse themselves from their beds?

    10
  20. Anyone from the Halfrican to Pelosi to Maxine are encouraging violence. Jane’s Revenge has promised violence. They are threatening the Churches too. Be careful where you go tonight. Especially if it’s to church.

    11
  21. Does this decision now affect federal dollars given to Planned Parenthood?

    (In the past month or so I’ve seen two instances of PP standing on Seattle street corners — in the Ballard neighborhood and down at the Market — with signs and handing out pamphlets. Women with wide smiles and welcoming attitudes, eager to talk with those seeking their wares. Sickening.)

    3
  22. Apparently the Court Leaker is still leaking. Why else would the January 6th Clown Court suddenly decide to wait to reconvene? Dirty rats.

    5
  23. … and how many decades has the Republican establishment been promising to do something about this obviously outlandish decision? In 2016 Donald Trump made that explicit promise and I, for one, believed him. Say what you will about him, the motherfucker delivers.

    16
  24. AA – He’s saying it’s not up to SCOTUS, it’s the purview of the States and their legislatures.

    5
  25. Ghost of Burner: Thanks. Does the SCOTUS now give cover to individuals of states which do not recognize these things? Do these individuals still have the right to sue and appeal up to the SCOTUS for these things? I am ignorant of what the SCOTUS has previously ruled and if they are the law of the land.

    1
  26. The only downside to this is I wish SCOTUS had taken the next step, and declared a baby in the womb is a human being with all the rights and privileges of any other human. But I will take what I can get.

  27. JD — haha! It’s a man protesting the Court trampling on “his” uterus?! I don’t see his high heels in that photo. Are we sure he’s not a pimp?

  28. Justice Thomas was stating the court will not consider prenumbra decisions not founded on constitutional principles. No more cases using judicial activist derived rights out of thin air by leftist judges need apply.

    The SC will now go back to its constitutionally defined parameters, and activists asking the Justices to rule on issues outside the boundaries of constitutional precedent need not apply.

    Starie Desicus hardest hit.

  29. If they want to attack churches and synagogues, they are going to find out that churches they target are not chock a block full of appeasers and infiltrators. They are full of God fearing people who have the means and the will to respond appropriately to violent attack.

    Ecclesiastes 3

    A Time for Everything
    3 There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
    2 a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
    6 a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    8 a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

  30. As a man considering pregnancy this is truly an infringement on my constitutional right to an abortion.

  31. Weather report out of the northwest: Seattle and Portland expected to be clobbered by Hurricane Ultra MAGA. Violent temper tantrums coming.

    My advice: Stay the hell out of shitholes. Shelter at home and keep your powder dry.

  32. JD

    Yep, I have people emailing me local FB posts that are threatening violence. The Libs are going to go nuts over this. I’m thinking back at how nuts they were during the 2020 campaign. I caught to little old ladies ripping Trump signs down. I told them they were breaking a federal law, and the told me to fuck off while frothing at the mouth. It’s going to be much worse than that.

  33. The issue of abortion should be left up to elected politicians and not 5 out of 9 unelected justices who are bound to follow the Constitution in any event. That is the ruling in this case. The problem for the pro-abortion people is that is is difficult to convince elected politicians to sanction abortion in most states, and the progressives are used to using the judiciary as cover for their unconstitutional policies.

    Blue states like California, Illinois and New York will continue to sanction abortion through legislative activities. But it may be a closer question than one thinks even in those states – most politicians do not want to go on record as baby killers. Abortion has always been based on lies – when Roe v. Wade was first decided, the catch phrase was “safe, legal and rare.” Now, abortion is just another form of birth control.

    8
  34. The progressive movement is trying to control the narrative. Their drones are already posting rhetoric that will be useful in demonstrating to anyone who is not aware of what the progressive movement stands for, EXACTLY what they stand for.

    When the base your movement recruits from is absolutely littered with perpetual adolescents what you have to deal with sooner or later is an out of control mob.

  35. @AbibailAdams

    In those three cases mentioned by Justice Thomas, Griswold endorsed right to privacy, Lawrence permitted homosexual acts and Obergefell mandated that every state must recognize homosexual marriages performed in another state.

    The fourteenth amendment contains the Equal Protection clause and the Due Process clause upon which these cases were decided.

    Constitutional carry, in effect, should be in all 50 states based on the Obergefell decision. One state’s concealed carry license should be recognized in all other states based on the same reasoning of Obergefell.

  36. And those “devout” Catholics, Pelosi and Biden, are complaining the most. Can you say, HYPOCRITE!

  37. 1harpazo — thank you, indeed! And no worries about the moniker — I kinda like “Abibail..” 🙂

    Many thanks again! I wished the SCOTUS would boil things down to a “Supreme Court Rulings for Dummies” version. I’ll be looking into this further.

  38. Wyatt — Abortion was already legal pre-Roe v. Wade, in cases of threat to a woman’s life. In Texas where Roe was hatched, abortion was legal with respect to protecting the pregnant woman’s life. I don’t know about the rape and/or incest situations. It probably varied by state — so now we have come full circle and many dead children in the meantime.

    One other reason there will be senseless violence and destruction in response to this decision is that abortion is a multi-billion dollar enterprise that reaches far beyond abortion. There is a baby parts operation to consider as well as all those who are paid to protect R v. W, look the other way and keep the enterprise solvent and growing. PP is another gov’t build-out enterprise of the spoils system just as ACORN was (is, under different names). The sheer amount of money is staggering and most of it is tax-payer paid or gained through nefarious means. That dragon will not slither back to its cave without a tremendous fight.

  39. We have Libtard Elected officials doing far worse things, as far as inciting violence, than anything they’ve even accused Trump of doing. These people are nuts.

    A buddy just sent me a tweet from some blue checked moron.
    “We need to burn all churches. Except for the black ones”

    So hurry up a paint your local churches black.

  40. FWIW the above headline is not what Thomas said. What he said is that it is up to the individual States and in that he’s spot on. The lib press is trying to further inflame the lunatic fringe, like the Goddamned idiots need any encouragement to throw a temper tantrum.

  42. Could this be the spark that ignites the leftist dream of revolution or secession?

    Let them. If they want to wave the bloody red shirt of revolution, let them bring it into some of our neighborhoods. I’m ammo’d up.

  43. Praise The True and Living God! It is no longer a Federal supported “law” to slaughter American citizens in the womb. That has been the goal of Satan and men who hate this country – to reduce our population
    to render America as depleted/defenseless as possible.

    For fifty years the blood of aborted infants cried out and God’s faithful remnant fasted and prayed. Fighting such a spiritual stronghold took time and lives, yet those of us who love God and support life have prevailed in the name of Jesus. Hallelujah!

    Now the citizens of states will be accountable. As it should be – choose you this day, mammon or God. Blue/Purple states are on notice. The window for shutting down abortion clinics may close after the elections in 2024 or even the Midterms 2022. After those events -the judgement.

    Roberts, Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor chose the wrong side on this decision and have blood on their hands. Justice Alito made reasons to overturn this injustice very clear. Justice Thomas alerted the left, conservative Supreme members need to look at the weak standing of “gay” marriage/unions. God bless them both, mightily!
    As for Kavanagh, Gorsuch and Barrett…well, proof God is in control.

    Abortion is now more difficult to obtain. Many lives are saved from enfantcide. I’m so overjoyed God has kept His Word to visit the Supreme Court to do what is right. He’ll do it again.

    “@SNS–

    Plain Jane is rejoicing with the angels in heaven!”

    Amen. She was too good for this world anyway. Apparently,a merciful God agreed. She’s MUCH better off being with Him now.

    …still, she was an implacable foe of this evil, and stood against it to the end. I just think she and all she stood with (including you) earned a victory lap for it, and I sure would have appreciated hearing her praise God for it in her own words.

    Thank you for your work in this too. Standing unarmed before satan’s minions at the very gates of hell with the announced intention of depriving the devil himself of his food takes a kind of courage that only the strongest in the Lord can possibly have. Thank you for doing that with her.

    God Bless,

    …some Churches have sheepdogs.

    Armed ones.

    They may find out the hard way which ones.

    37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

    38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.”

  46. I was 19 and just short of 20 when Roe was decided in the middle of Jan. 1973 and had just been at NAS Miramar, Cal. for 2 weeks when I was assigned TAD duty to Special Services and was in charge of the reader boards at both gates of the base. It was also the same day that LBJ died (coincidence, I think not) because I put up the notice that LBJ had died on the reader boards at both gates of the base. Today has been a long time in coming and I am very thankful to God that Roe was overturned finally and returned to the states to decide like it should’ve been in the first place. The decision by SCOTUS today doesn’t end abortion but kicks it back to the states to decide whether or not they will allow abortion within their state borders. It’s still a win/win and most states will now decide for themselves what to do about abortion. Unfortunately, my lousy governor Jay Inslee and the other 2 ghoulish governors on the left coast have declared open season on unborn children, God help us. I’ve said before that I met Norma McCorvey while rescuing with Operation Rescue in Aug. 1996 in San Diego and I wish that she was still alive to see Roe overturned. She and we have been vindicated now that Roe is gone. And besides the original Roe decision was based and predicated on a lie concocted by the left in Harry Blackmun’s ungodly and unconstitutional decision that abortion was a constitutional right guaranteed by a so called right to privacy in the Constitution. BS, and I am extremely glad and happy to see that Roe has finally been overturned nearly 50 years after its evil and ungodly conception by the left. Praise God and Hallelujah and thank you President Trump for championing the cause of the unborn. Now I pray that the left will get their comeuppance for this 50-year nightmare they foisted on all the unborn children they have murdered and especially children of color that they created in Jan. 1973.
