Pro-life professors praised the Supreme Court for ending Roe v. Wade
Pro-life professors shared their excitement that the Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade today in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. The decision, written by Justice Samuel Alito, allows states to regulate and ban abortion.
“It’s truly morning in America! Roe and Casey have fallen!” Catholic University of America’s C.C. Pecknold wrote. The theologian is also on the board of Americans United for Life, which has helped pioneer the legal strategy for the pro-life movement.

Professor O. Carter Snead shared similar appreciation for the ruling.
The Notre Dame law professor stated:
In today’s historic decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the U.S. Supreme Court has correctly overturned fifty years of grievously flawed and constitutionally unjustified abortion jurisprudence including Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, and related precedents, restoring the right of the American people to create laws and policies that protect human life at all stages of development and offer comprehensive support to women, children, and families.
Those who have worked tirelessly to support unborn children and their mothers have reason to rejoice today, as they now redouble the efforts they have long pursued for the intrinsic equal dignity and value of every human life and to create a society where every child (born and unborn), mother, and family is welcomed into a network of support and protection, and loved unconditionally, from conception throughout the human lifespan.
Roe v. Wade is overturned on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart.
God is in control.
