Missouri Makes History In Light Of Landmark SCOTUS Ruling On Abortion

On Friday, Missouri became the first state in the country to activate its trigger law, officially making the murder of the pre-born illegal after the Supreme Court overturned the blood-drenched Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal across the United States almost 50 years ago.

According to TheBlaze, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, tossed Roe in the garbage and held that our Constitution does not delineate a right for abortion, thus, the right to regulate the vile practice has reverted back to the states.

“In immediate response, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt issued an opinion that activates part of the state’s fetal heartbeat law, effectively ending abortion in the state of Missouri,” the report went on to say.

“Today, following the United States Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, with the issuance of an attorney general opinion, my Office has yet again reinforced Missouri’s dedication to protecting the sanctity of life, both born and unborn. With this attorney general opinion, my Office has effectively ended abortion in Missouri, becoming the first state in the country to do so following the Court’s ruling,” Schmitt stated.

He then added, “My Office has been fighting to uphold the sanctity of life since I became attorney general, culminating in today’s momentous court ruling and attorney general opinion. I will continue the fight to protect all life, born and unborn.”

The law in Missouri clearly states that except in cases of a medical emergency, “no abortion shall be performed or induced upon a woman.”

Missouri is one of thirteen states that have “trigger laws” that are now expected to go into effect, imposing major restrictions on the practice of murdering the unborn or in many cases, outright banning it. This is what it looks like to uphold the value of human life.

In Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Ohio, and South Carolina, courts have blocked or struck down laws banning all or most abortions. Given the Supreme Court’s decision, those cases are now moot, and those laws could go into effect within weeks or months, according to the Washington Post,” TheBlaze reported.

There are a few states in the union, like West Virginia, that actually have laws from before the Roe decision that banned abortion that has not been enforced all this time and that might now be enforced.

“In some Democratic-led states, like Michigan, Democratic leaders have called for anti-abortion laws on the books to be repealed or vacated,” the report continued.

Dana Nessel, Michigan Attorney General, stated back in May that she would not be enforcing the state’s 1931 abortion ban, which she slammed as being “draconian,” should the Supreme Court decide to overturn Roe.

According to reports, there are indications that abortion clinics in states that have strong pro-life laws are now stopping their operations.

“I’m hearing from clinic sources in Louisiana, Kentucky, Texas, Missouri that are halting abortions immediately (can’t speak to ALL clinics in those states, but hearing from some) in response to SCOTUS decision. Also hearing Planned Parenthood has stopped abortions in Arkansas,” NPR Sarah McCammon stated in her report.

This is a fantastic day of celebration for all who are pro-life. It’s a major victory and as Missouri is here illustrating, we are on our way to a culture of life instead of one of death. However, it took almost five decades to get here. Let us not forget all of the innocent blood shed during all those years. Keep fighting for them.
