Attorney General John O’Connor praised the U.S. Supreme Court for its long-awaited decision today overturning Roe v. Wade. That decision, Dobbs v. Whole Woman’s Health Organization, makes clear that there has never been a fundamental right in the U.S. Constitution to kill unborn children and that Roe was egregiously wrong when it was decided. Now the voices of the people, speaking for themselves and for our unborn children, can once again be heard.
“After almost 50 years, the U.S. Supreme Court has wiped one of the most horrifying opinions in American history from the books. It has courageously done so in the face of intimidation, leaks, violence, and even an assassination attempt,” Attorney General O’Connor stated. “Roe not only took away over 60 million lives, it also barred Oklahomans and all other Americans from protecting our unborn children. We should help every woman facing a crisis pregnancy, but not at the cost of the innocent child’s life. This is truly a day for celebration and thanksgiving.”
