America woke up to historic news last Friday. Fifty years after the Supreme Court decided that abortion was a “right” and would be legal across the country, the same court sent it back to the states and overturned the infamous ruling. In the 50 years Roe v. Wade was the law of the land, 63+ million babies were murdered. Now it’s up to the individual states, and within days of the Supreme Court ruling (and in some cases just hours), states across the country have implemented various forms of abortion bans.
Roe v. Wade has now joined the trash heap of history and will go down in the history books as an unconstitutional ruling that was one of the biggest mistakes in the history of our country, leading to a period of deadly genocide of generations of Americans. People who had the potential to carry out their American Dream and do great things, just like you and I, were murdered in cold blood because of the disastrous unconstitutional Roe v. Wade ruling. There will be a lot of buzz in the next few weeks and months, but one thing remains true regardless of partisanship: It is now my generation’s turn to become the Post Roe generation. Abortion is not a right. Abortion is not healthcare. Anybody who tries to tell you otherwise doesn’t understand the basic definition of a “right” or “healthcare”. After 50 years, that ruling has been struck down for what it was - unconstitutional. This is a huge win for life.
While this was the most covered decision from the Supreme Court in decades, it wasn’t the only major decision the court made that week. The day before Roe v. Wade was overturned, the court decided in a 6-3 vote that Americans have a right to carry firearms in public for self-defense. This case came about because New York had a law on the books infringing on citizens’ rights, saying that they needed to provide a specific reason to carry a firearm. That directly goes against the Second Amendment, which explicitly says, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. New York was trying to say that residents of the state needed to have a permit to carry a gun in public. To get a permit, they must show that they have a specific reason for wanting to carry in public, and this specific reason has to be greater than a member of the general public might normally need. The state was forcing citizens to show a special need for carrying a gun in public, so it should come as no surprise that the highest court in the land charged with defending the constitution struck this down as well for what it was - unconstitutional. This is a huge win for your Second Amendment rights!
As if a monumental decision on gun rights and overturning Roe v. Wade wasn’t enough for one week, the Supreme Court decided Monday to rule on the case of a Washington state football coach whose post-game prayer on the 50-yard line cost him his job. The court ruled that Coach Kennedy’s prayer was protected by the First Amendment, which states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”. The First Amendment guarantees Americans freedom of religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. Coach Kennedy was fired from his job for expressing his right to religion in 2015, and this week after his case finally made it to the Supreme Court, the court ruled in his favor setting a precedent across the country protecting your religious rights! This is a huge win for religious freedom!
Some would say after these recent conservative victories in the Supreme Court it’s the most triggered the liberals have been since a businessman was elected to The White House in 2016. That businessman was Donald Trump, and he ran a campaign promising to appoint conservative judges and justices across the country. In 2020, he ran a re-election campaign with the slogan, “Promises Made, Promises Kept”, and that’s exactly what his four years in office consisted of. In one term as President, Donald Trump appointed not one, not two, but three staunch conservatives to the Supreme Court who made these three significant rulings in the past week possible. The credit for these conservative victories goes to the justices who weren’t afraid to stand up against the mob and vote the way they thought was constitutionally correct, but it also equally goes to Donald Trump, who made three-lifetime conservative appointments in four years.
The Supreme Court has now entered recess until October, but when they come back, we can only expect more constitutional victories to come, thanks to the majority made possible by President Trump!
