ALEC in the Daily Caller: Roe Is Dead. What Happens Next?
The opinion should be welcomed by all Americans, as it will breathe life into the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization gives hope to Americans who believe in the humanity of every person, including those yet to be born. That hope now rests on the leadership of state legislators.
An important point must be made to cut through the noise surrounding this landmark decision: the Supreme Court is not outlawing abortion. Instead, Dobbs has properly moved the debate around protecting life to the elected and accountable members of every state legislature.
In all likelihood, states such as Mississippi – where the Dobbs case originated – will strictly limit abortions, while states such as California will make abortion available at all times during a woman’s pregnancy. Many states, however, will likely fall somewhere in the middle.
