My statement on SCOTUS' decision to overturn Roe v. Wade

Updated: Jun 25

"Today’s decision by the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade corrects one of the most egregious examples of judicial activism in United States history. Over the last 50 years, even liberal legal scholars have questioned the legal premise used in the Roe decision. America is a Constitutional Republic where power is shared between the States and the federal government. Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution is the right to an abortion implied or mentioned. Today, through the courage shown by the Court and in accordance with the 10th Amendment, the issue is once again rightly returned to the States.


I have always believed in the sanctity of all human life, especially in the case of the unborn, who lack the ability to advocate on their own behalf. While today’s decision is cause for celebration, it must also serve as a reminder that our battle to protect and preserve human life is far from over. In fact, the real work has just begun. It is imperative that our elected officials work together to craft legislation and implement policies that encourage life and help alleviate the burdens of an unexpected pregnancy."
