TRENDING: BREAKING: SUPREME COURT REVERSES ROE v. WADE – ABORTION RETURNED TO THE STATES

The 79 page opinion overturning the landmark case was written by Justice Samuel Alito, with a separate concurring opinion from Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Justice Alito wrote that the Roe court “usurped the power to address a question of profound moral and social importance that the Constitution unequivocally leaves for the people.”

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote. “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”

Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan filed a joint dissent.

“Whatever the exact scope of the coming laws, one result of today’s decision is certain: the curtailment of women’s rights, and of their status as free and equal citizens,” the dissenters wrote.

Laws related to abortion will now be returned to the states to decide.
