Roe v. Wade Overturned

On the morning of Friday, June 24, in a 6–3 ruling, the Supreme Court issued a historic verdict. In a decision titled Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the court overturned Roe vs. Wade. After nearly fifty years, abortion is no longer considered to be a right under the Constitution. This development in our laws, with all that it suggests of changing currents of thought, offers reason to hope for the future. However, much remains to be done. With no federal ruling in place, individual states will decide whether and how extensively to allow abortions. We would do well to pray for the grace of the Spirit, so as to offer Christ’s mercy where it is most needed in our communities, and thus aid the transforming effects of the Gospel of Life.
