“By overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court of the United States has given the American people a new beginning for life and I commend the Justices in the majority for having the courage of their convictions. … Now that Roe v. Wade has been consigned to the ash heap of history, a new arena in the cause of life has emerged and it is incumbent on all who cherish the sanctity of life to resolve that we will take the defense of the unborn and support for women in crisis pregnancies to every state Capitol in America. Having been given this second chance for Life, we must not rest and must not relent until the sanctity of life is restored to the center of American law in every state in the land.” —former Vice President Mike Pence

“A thought: It would be great if every pro-lifer here could find their nearest pregnancy resource center and make a commitment to donate $6.24, $62.40, or $624 (whatever you have capacity for) every year on this date. They do heroic work and deserve our support.” —Ryan T. Anderson

“States that pass abortion restrictions should also pass stricter laws holding men responsible for supporting those children.” —David Harsanyi

“We have Trump to thank for this. Ain’t a mean tweet in the world that can overshadow what is now the greatest presidential legacy in history.” —Allie Beth Stuckey

“I could not think of a better way to end Pride Month.” —Matt Walsh

Demagogues

“Today, the Supreme Court of the United States expressly took away a constitutional right from the American people that it had already recognized. They didn’t limit it. They simply took it away. That’s never been done to a right so important to so many Americans. But they did it. And it’s a sad day for the Court and for the country. … Now, with Roe gone, let’s be very clear: The health and life of women in this nation are now at risk. … Make no mistake: This decision is the culmination of a deliberate effort over decades to upset the balance of our law. It’s a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court, in my view. The Court has done what it has never done before: expressly take away a constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many Americans that had already been recognized. … This fall, Roe is on the ballot. Personal freedoms are on the ballot. The right to privacy, liberty, equality, they’re all on the ballot. … With this decision, the conservative majority of the Supreme Court shows how extreme it is, how far removed they are from the majority of this country. They have made the United States an outlier among developed nations in the world.” —President Joe Biden

“This is a healthcare crisis, because understand: Millions of women in America will go to bed tonight without access to the healthcare and reproductive care that they had this morning; without access to the same healthcare or reproductive healthcare that their mothers and grandmothers had for 50 years. This is the first time in the history of our nation that a constitutional right has been taken from the people of America. … Today’s decision … calls into question other rights that we thought were settled, such as the right to use birth control, the right to same-sex marriage, the right to interracial marriage.” —Vice President Kamala Harris

“Today, the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has achieved the GOP’s dark and extreme goal of ripping away women’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions. Because of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, the Republican Party and their supermajority on the Supreme Court, American women today have less freedom than their mothers. … While Republicans seek to punish and control women, Democrats will keep fighting ferociously to enshrine Roe v. Wade into law. This cruel ruling is outrageous and heart-wrenching.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

“Today is one of the darkest days our country has ever seen. Millions upon millions of American women are having their rights taken from them by five unelected Justices on the extremist MAGA court. These justices, appointed by Republicans and presiding without any accountability, have stolen a fundamental right to have an abortion away from American women in this country. These justices were intentionally appointed by Republicans to overturn Roe v. Wade and every Republican Senator knew this would happen if they voted to confirm these radical justices. These MAGA Republicans are all complicit in today’s decision and all of its consequences for women and families in this country.” —Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer

“Six radical Supreme Court Justices have overturned nearly 50 years of precedent, stripping away the constitutional right to an abortion. After decades of scheming, Republican politicians have finally forced their unpopular agenda on the rest of America.” —Senator Elizabeth Warren

“I’m outraged by the Supreme Court’s decision. As a pro-choice pastor, I’ll never back down from this fight. Women must be able to make their own health care decisions, not politicians.” —Senator Raphael Warnock

“I am deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court has voted to overturn Roe v. Wade. It has been the law of the land for nearly 50 years and was understood to be settled precedent. I trusted Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh when they testified under oath that they also believed Roe v. Wade was settled legal precedent and I am alarmed they chose to reject the stability the ruling has provided for two generations of Americans.” —Senator Joe Manchin

“To hell with the Supreme Court! We will defy them!” —Congresswoman Maxine Waters

“Overturning Roe v. Wade would be a direct assault on Black lives.” —Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (“This is the mindset of black feminism. Planned Parenthood was literally founded upon the idea of ‘assaulting black lives,’ and yet Pressley seems to view it as virtuous. This same narrative will be preached … at many urban black churches that promote liberation theology.” —Darrell B. Harrison)

“Just a few months ago I literally had to explain to Republican members of Congress how periods work. Their complete and utter incompetence is now killing women and pregnant people across the US. There remains no legitimate grounding or basis to force birth in the United States.” —Congresswoman Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez (“The same people that brought you ‘pregnant people’ are now talking about ‘forced birth’ as if you can tie women up and place a baby inside without them knowing.” —Virgil Walker)

“What the Supreme Court just did was that they chose to endanger the lives of all women and all birthing people in this country.” —AOC

“Forced pregnancy is a crime against humanity.” —AOC

“This decision and this policy will kill people no matter what their spin and what their talking points are. And that’s what the data shows and that’s what the statistics show.” —AOC

Dezinformatsiya

“They have eliminated the constitutional right to an abortion.” —CNN’s Jessica Schneider

“It’s the first time in my lifetime that I can think of where a Supreme Court took away a right. … There really is [sic] a lot of people who believe this is a rigged Court.” —MSNBC’s Chuck Todd

“They are activist judges. These are judges who will reach out and reject decades of precedent. … We are in a new era with a new activist court.” —ABC News’s Terry Moran

And Last…

“Roe v. Wade was decided by seven white men and overturned by a woman and a black man!” —Greg Price
