On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court’s long-awaited decision in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was released, reversing the landmark abortion decisions Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
For decades, the Supreme Court imposed a destructive and unworkable abortion policy on the entire nation. Because it declared abortion a “constitutional right,” the people could not change abortion policy through the legislative process.
The only way to do so ultimately was either to amend the Constitution, or to have the Supreme Court reverse its decision.
It took 49 and a half years, but the Supreme Court finally acknowledged in Dobbs that “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion” and that therefore “the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”
