Supreme Court: Roe v. Wade is Struck Down
The official word has come from the Supreme Court. Roe v. Wade has been overruled. The vote was 6-3, with the conservative majority prevailing.
Roe vs. Wade was a 50 year old landmark ruling that declared a constitutional right to abortion. This ruling itself does NOT outlaw abortions. It sends the issue back to the individual states to decide.
“Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey [a 1992 Supreme Court case] are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”
The ruling upholds a Mississippi law outlawing abortions after 15 weeks, and will trigger “bans” on abortions in 13 states (automatically or with minimal effort). It is expected that other states will go equally in the opposite direction.
The potential for this ruling leaked from the Supreme Court last month, in the form of a draft supported by a majority of Justices, but not in final form. Protests have already begun, but have been sporadic up to this point. At the time of this writing, a protest was forming up around the Supreme Court.

As we published yesterday, riots in DC, and likely across the country are already planned. And no, I don’t mean protests. Expect severe property damage, expect injuries, expect more. This will not be peaceful, the left has trained itself to be violent, anything goes.
