<em>Roe</em> is dead; babies can live

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood in a 6-3 decision. It ruled that the Constitution confers no right to abortion, and states must decide whether to legalize or prohibit the practice. The decision ends the 50-year-long precedent of Roe, which entailed the killing of around 63 million babies, according to The National Right to Life Committee.

What happens now? About 26 states are certain or likely to increase legal protections for the unborn either automatically or imminently after Friday’s decision. More states may soon follow, but many others will likely expand access to abortion. Capitol Police have called in additional officers in anticipation of protests. The violent pro-abortion terrorist group Jane’s Revenge is expected to follow through on its promises of destructive protests in response to the decision.
