The Supreme Court just overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. This is devastating, an absolute national tragedy. But know that this isn't the end of this fight, that activists and organizers are diligently working to continue access to safe abortion. A thread:
SCOTUS just overruled Roe & Casey, ending one of the most morally & legally corrupt eras in US history. Praise the Lord.
Abortion is now illegal in Texas.
And today I’m closing my office—and making it an annual holiday—as a memorial to the 70 million lives lost bc of abortion.
Whether you are pro-abortion or not, this was the right decision legally. You may not like it, but you were lied to by the Roe & Casey justices who told you abortion was a constitutional right. This Court set things straight & now it’s where it belongs: in the hands of the ppl.
🚨 URGENTE!!! A Suprema Corte Americana acaba de reverter Roe v Wade e PP v Casey ACABAR COM O DIREITO AO ABORTO no país! A decisão volta a ser, como antes da década de 70, individual de cada um dos Estados! Um grande dia para a vida! Promessa de Trump cumprida! 🚨
BREAKING: SCOTUS overturns Roe v Wade, ruling, "The Constitution does NOT confer a right to abortion; Roe & Casey are overruled. The authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people & their elected representatives."
America regressed 50 years today. Horrific.
Today, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, undermining 50+ years of individual liberty, bodily autonomy, and gender equality rights.
We’ll be blunt – people will die because of this decision.
I applaud the courage of the Supreme Court in standing up for our most vulnerable in the face of violent intimidation from leftist agitators and the Democratic Party. Roe and Casey were bad science and bad law. Now they’re history. The Supreme Court’s decisions in Roe v. (1/4)
BREAKING: Alito: "The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives."
The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives. #RoeVsWade
For those who haven’t read the ruling, here’s the gist 🧵:
Court (Alito, Thomas, Barrett, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh): Mississippi’s pro-life law is legit, Roe and Casey are not.
Libs (Breyer, Kagan, Sotomayor): but we like abortion!!
Roberts: guys, can’t we chill with the Roe stuff?
Hoy nos unimos a millones de estadounidenses — incluyendo a la mayoría de los hispanos que valoran la vida humana — para celebrar la decisión del Tribunal Supremo de 6 a 3 que anula "Roe" y "Casey". https://t.co/fcciuR3tZI
In sharp contrast to Roe/Casey viability line, abortion in France is legal through 14 weeks (one week earlier than Mississippi 15-week ban), and that legalization happened legislatively, not via judicial diktat. https://t.co/qcRvXVQQvq
Excellent if limited news for gun safety. But hard to rejoice on the day the Court disastrously overruled Roe and Casey and the day after it dangerously extended gun rights from self-defense in the home to carrying concealed firearms outside the home.
Roe and Casey have been overturned in a 6-3 decision. Kentucky has a trigger law where abortion is now banned. If you can please consider donating so we can continue to support folks traveling to IL and Virginia. https://t.co/TPsotWfTlX
Conception happens in the first trimester.
Casey v Planned parenthood enshrined states with the authority to regulate abortion in the first trimester in 1992.
Today’s ruling has done literally nothing that Casey didn’t do.
We need a BLUE tidal wave! Roe and Casey are OVERRULED by extremist GOP SCOTUS 6-3 in Dobbs outlawing abortion in almost half the states. I’m 45 yrs old & have never known a world without a constitutional right over my own body! We won’t go back! #Fresh #ONEV1 #DemVoice1 #wtpBlue https://t.co/ipeFpPx2Xs
Casey said he’s already thought about using Cade, Killian and Jaden together.
The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood. Here’s what that means. (THREAD)
Roe V Wade is overturned! I will continue to be a voice for the unborn in Arizona!
SCOTUS: "The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives."
Today’s ruling overturning Roe and Casey delivers a gut punch to tens of millions of Americans.
I commit to stand with all women against this travesty. And let’s not lose sight of what J. Thomas’ opinion makes clear. They’re coming after many more fundamental human rights next.
The dissent: "No one should be confident that this majority is done ... The right Roe and Casey recognized does not stand alone. To the contrary, the Court has linked it for decades to other settled freedoms involving bodily integrity, familial relationships, and procreation."
In Casey's controlling opinion they "called the contending sides of a national controversy to end their national division." This was in 1992. Guess you could say their call didn't work. 22/ https://t.co/aZz2yoI2wp
saint casey is tearing up in public on the bus thinking about the future and how bleak it all feels
I think that's how Casey was for me. I couldn't be a mutant ninja turtle, but I could be like Casey Jones going on adventures with the turtles. 4/?
