Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds SCOTUS Ruling Overturning Roe v. Wade
Atlanta, GA – On Friday morning, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) issued its ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, ruling that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. As a result, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey were overruled. Authority to regulate abortion is now returned to the people and their elected representatives.
In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement: “Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a victory for constitutional governance. The Constitution is silent on the matter of abortion, and the Supreme Court that issued the Roe ruling 49 years ago was simply wrong when it did so. With the issuance of today’s ruling, the five members of the Supreme Court who joined to overturn Roe have courageously taken a stand in defense of constitutional principles, and we applaud them for it. The question of abortion now goes back to the states and to the democratic process, where it should have been all along.”
