The Supreme Court of the United States reversed one of its most grievous mistakes, when upholding Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, a majority decided to overturn its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. June 24 will be remembered as a momentous day when the political, legal, and activist strategies of the pro-life movement gained a generational victory by removing the stain on the American body politic, namely the fiction that abortion was a constitutional right.
It is cause for celebration. But the end of Roe marks the beginning of a new chapter to restore legal protection to all preborn children. Let the hard work begin!
