|Today, on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the US Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the opinion was authored by Justice Alito. Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett joined Alito’s opinion. Chief Justice John Roberts did not join the majority opinion but filed a separate opinion agreeing with the Court’s decision to uphold the Mississippi law but also arguing that the Court should not have decided the question of whether the Constitution protects abortion. The three justices, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan dissented against the ruling.
|Please pray that in the days, weeks, months, and years to come, our Federal government and the states will do the right thing and vote to protect the most innocent and helpless lives among us, and that our communities continue to grow in love and support for families struggling with difficult pregnancies.
