It's been a week since the U.S. Supreme Court released its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. This is a victory for life and for those who have fought for decades to protect the unborn. (The photo above is from the annual March for Life held on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade that many Wisconsinites have attended over the decades.)
For almost fifty years the decision of nine unelected Justices have prevented a democratically derived consensus on the profound moral issue of abortion to be formed. This decision will now allow that democratic process to unfold in each state to determine at what point does society have the responsibility to protect life. Hopefully, the debate will be conducted with sincerity, compassion, and respect for the broad range of views that people hold.
