Luetkemeyer on Historic Overturning of Roe v. Wade

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Today, Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) released a statement regarding the landmark ruling from the United States Supreme Court that will overturn the tragic 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

“The Supreme Court is charged with interpreting the law, not writing it. However, in Roe v. Wade, the Court inappropriately established law in the United States making abortion legal.  In the decades that followed, that misguided decision took the lives of millions of innocent babies. This morning’s decision restores the Constitutional rights of our citizens and the legislative process. More importantly, it will protect millions of children from having their lives ended before they can live the life God intended,” said Luetkemeyer.

“Today is a great day, not just for pro-life Americans, but for everyone who believes in the rights of the innocent, the protection of the vulnerable, and the miracle of life.”
