WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
By Councilman Rev. Ruben Diaz 18 District, Bronx
You should know that on January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court approved “Roe Vs. Wade” which made abortion legal throughout our nation.
A woman named Norma McCorvey, under the pseudonym "Jane Roe" sued the State of Texas and its Attorney General Henry Wade, bringing about the infamous case known as "Roe-vs-Wade.
Ms. McCorvey (Jane Roe) was represented by 2 female attorney’s Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee.
The Supreme Court in 1973 was in its majority composed of liberal, left-leaning justices which resulted in a 7–2 decision in favor of Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe"). These justices were of the opinion that women in the United States have a fundamental right to choose whether or not to have abortions without excessive government restriction, and they struck down Texas's abortion ban as unconstitutional.
You should know that in recent years, U.S. President’s, George Bush and Donald J.Trump have appointed more conservative, and moderate judges to the Supreme Court. This has resulted in a Supreme Court that is composed of justices that lean conservative. The view and fears of the liberal left are that the court now is prolife and anti-abortion and that it puts Roe vs Wade at risk of being overturned.
Thanks to those appointments by Presidents George Bush and Donald Trump, people of faith who support the sanctity of life and oppose abortion have seen a change in the decisions made by the Supreme Court.
The (9) Supreme Court justices this month upheld the Texas abortion Law that bans abortions after 6 weeks, known as the “Heart Beat Bill”. The Texas liberals were defeated and the Texas abortion bill stands.
It is important for you to know, that this Supreme Court decision now begins a new fight of titanic proportions in the State of Texas and it will affect the future of abortions in America. In the near future, one way or another you may notice that the appointments of President George Bush and Donald Trump have opened a path for the Right to Life and Abortion to be decided once and for all that, therefore this infamous decision which began in Texas in 1973 will likely end in Texas.
