Abortion was never a “right” protected by the U.S. Constitution. This fact was finally recognized on June 24, 2022, with the court’s momentous Dobbs vs. Jackson ruling.
The court did not “take away the constitutional right to abortion.” The Court overturned and corrected the wrongful Roe vs. Wade ruling and ruled explicitly that no such “right” exists constitutionally.
The Child Protection League hails the Dobbs vs. Jackson ruling as the most significant step ever to protect children from violence. For nearly 50 years, this horrific and false edict from the high court has made a woman’s womb the most dangerous place for a pre-born child.
Like the 1857 Dred Scott decision which claimed the U.S. Constitution protected the property rights of slave owners, Roe vs. Wade similarly abused its judicial authority by reinventing the constitution. It created a “right” unconnected to the Constitution itself, without reason or authority.
Even with the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, Minnesota children in the womb tragically remain legally unprotected because the U.S. Supreme Court stopped short of ruling that unborn children have a constitutional right to life. For that reason, Minnesota remains in the grip of legally protected abortion. Our state is poised to become a magnet for abortion-seekers across the nation, and Minnesota taxpayers will be footing the bill.
In 1995, the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled (in Doe vs. Gomez) that the Minnesota constitution established a constitutional right to abortion, including taxpayer-funding for low-income women. For decades, Minnesota Governors, including Governor Walz, have appointed abortion advocates to the courts. Majorities on the court have not respected the Minnesota constitution, the right to life for all, or the innocent and helpless unborn children under attack in the womb.
It is time to change this. It’s now or never, Minnesota.
The most vulnerable among us need real liberation. Get engaged. This is a battle for the lives of children and the soul of our state.
