Supreme Court ruling gives reason to be proud of Idaho

| June 30, 2022 1:00 AM

In the Idaho Republican Platform it currently states, "We believe human life begins at conception and is protected by the unalienable rights endowed by our creator along with the fundamental right to life and shall not be infringed upon." 

The United States Supreme Court's recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has been long overdue, but thankfully the abortion issue can now be settled by the states, as it should be. We ought to stand firm on the fundamental right to life for the unborn and celebrate this monumental and joyous moment in our nation's history.

Congressman Fulcher put it best in his statement on the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court decision:

"Today’s historic announcement by the Supreme Court on Dobbs v. Jackson – where the court upheld Mississippi’s pro-life law and overturned Roe v. Wade – is a momentous victory for life and an affirmation of our federalist system. States, as the constitutionally prescribed authority on this matter, will now have the opportunity to enact policies that promote a culture of life. Since the Roe decision in 1973, America has endured the tragedy of some 63 million abortions. I am proud that Idaho has already enacted legislation that prohibits abortion upon the repeal of Roe."

I, too, am proud of Idaho.
