Gorsuch. / Courtesy of Supreme CourtDenver Newsroom, Jun 24, 2022 / 09:15 am (CNA).The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade with its landmark Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health decision, issued Friday. For the first time in almost 50 years, the debate over legal abortion returns to the individual U.S. states, allowing many states to protect the lives of the unborn. Such protection efforts will still face strong opposition from foes who say individual autonomy should trump the right to life, and Congressional Democrats have pushed for federal legislation they say would "codify" Roe.Though the Dobbs decision falls short of nationwide protections for the unborn, it nonetheless represents a major victory for the decades of pro-life efforts to cultivate and promote jurists capable of rejecting Roe's deeply troubling precedent and al...

Pontifical Academy of Life says overturning of Roe v. Wade 'challenges the world'

null / Vatican Media.Vatican City, Jun 24, 2022 / 12:54 pm (CNA).The Pontifical Academy of Life said Friday that the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade "challenges the whole world.""The court's opinion shows how the issue of abortion continues to arouse heated debate. The fact that a large country with a long democratic tradition has changed its position on this issue also challenges the whole world," the Vatican academy wrote in a statement on June 24."The protection and defense of human life is not an issue that can remain confined to the exercise of individual rights, but instead is a matter of broad social significance. After 50 years, it is important to reopen a non-ideological debate on the place that the protection of life has in a civil society to ask ourselves what kind of coexistence and society we want to build," it said.The academy's statement was the first official reaction to the court's decision issued by an entity linked to the Roman Curia.

Dobbs excerpts: Why the U.S. Supreme Court said Roe v Wade was 'egregiously wrong'

Associate Justice Samuel J. Alito Jr. / Screenshot from YouTube videoDenver Newsroom, Jun 24, 2022 / 12:08 pm (CNA).The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, saying that previous abortion rulings were "egregiously wrong from the start" and on a "collision course with the Constitution." Roe and other pro-abortion rights precedents were "an error that cannot be allowed to stand," and the abortion debate must now return to the states.The June 24 decision, authored by Justice Samuel Alito, concerned a 15-week abortion ban in Mississippi under the name Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. It often echoes a draft decision leaked in May that thoroughly rebuked the pro-abortion decisions Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, respectively issued in 1973 and 1992 by Republican-majority courts.Alito's decision was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. Thomas and Kavanaugh also filed concurring opinions.Chief Justice J...
