President Donald Trump praised the Supreme Court’s Friday decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which firmly overturned the 1973 ruling of Roe v. Wade and its subsequent reaffirmation in Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992.
“Today’s decision, which is the biggest WIN for LIFE in a generation, along with other decisions that have been announced recently, were only made possible because I delivered everything as promised, including nominating and getting three highly respected and strong Constitutionalists confirmed to the United States Supreme Court,” Trump said in an official statement made through his Save America PAC.
In early May, a draft opinion on the case of Dobbs v. Jackson was leaked, indicating that the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) was positioned to overturn the previous rulings on both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
Preceding the abortion decision on Friday, President Trump remarked in a post on Truth Social following SCOTUS’s ruling on a gun rights case in New York (New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen), “Elections have consequences. I promised to appoint Judges and Justices that would stand up for the Constitution. Today, the Supreme Court upheld the Second Amendment Right of all Americans.”
Continuing in his statement regarding the ruling to revoke the constitutional “right” to an abortion, President Trump said it was his “ great honor” to appoint three conservative justices sitting on the court today.
“I did not cave to the Radical Left Democrats, their partners in the Fake News Media, or the RINOs who are likewise the true, but silent, enemy of the people,” said the 45th president. “These major Victories prove that even though the Radical Left is doing everything in their power to destroy our Country, your Rights are being protected, the Country is being defended, and there is still hope and time to Save America!”
He added, “I will never stop fighting for the Great People of our Nation!”
