Victories over the American Taliban forces are hard to come by these days, so it’s important to get the word out when they occur. Here is the Right wing’s reaction to the high court’s decision not to take up Roe v. Wade again from Agape Press:
The pro-life community is reacting to yesterday’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, refusing to reconsider the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion. Norma McCorvey, the woman who was known as “Jane Roe” in the Roe v. Wade case, filed a petition asking the high court to rethink the fateful judgment of 32 years ago.
It was McCorvey’s protest of Texas’ abortion ban that led to the Supreme Court’s determination three decades ago that abortion is a woman’s constitutional right. Years later, however, the plaintiff became a Roman Catholic and came to regret her role in the case, which prompted her to pursue the legal challenge. In her appeal, she argued that the matter should be heard again in light of mounting evidence that abortion harms women.
In rejecting the petition, the Supreme Court basically stated without further comment that it would not hear the appeal. According to an Associated Press report, McCorvey told media at a Dallas news conference yesterday that she has now done everything she knows how to do to overturn Roe v. Wade and now “the weight of the world is no longer on my shoulders.”
…Whether the Supreme Court’s refusal was anticipated or not, its refusal to review the case has dismayed pro-lifers across the nation who were praying for a reversal. Tracey Reynolds of the group Operation Outcry got the bad news Tuesday afternoon. Operation Outcry assisted in the preparation of McCorvey’s petition. Lamenting the high court’s rejection of the appeal, Reynolds says, “It’s sad because there were over 1,000 women that had sworn testimonies in the case, and there were 10,000 that filed a brief that were in post-abortion healing ministries.”
