STATEMENT ON THE DOBBS V. JACKSON PRO-LIFE SUPREME COURT RULING

Today's Supreme Court decision is a historic milestone in protecting innocent babies and women.

(BYRON CENTER, Mich., – June 24, 2022) – John Gibbs, who is seeking the Republican nomination to represent Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, released the following statement on today’s U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson:
“Our great Declaration of Independence proclaims that all people are endowed by their Creator with the right to Life. That’s why today’s pro-life decision is a monumental step forward in protecting the lives of innocent babies and women.
The Supreme Court found that there is no right to abortion in the Constitution, thereby striking down Roe v. Wade and relegating the issue to the States. This means that the fight to protect the lives of innocent babies and women will continue at the State level, as well as at the Federal level in new ways.
We must have strength for the journey ahead. Just last month, left-wing extremists leaked a draft opinion on the case in order to threaten and intimidate the Supreme Court justices. These radicals went so far as to show up at the home of Justice Kavanaugh, fully armed and intending to do harm.
Thankfully, their plot failed, and God’s plans won. But we must remain vigilant and never back down. Let us pray against any mob violence perpetrated by the radical pro-abortion left in the upcoming days and weeks, and let us work with the relevant authorities to ensure that our places of faith and the many great pro-life pregnancy resource centers are protected.
Thank you to President Trump for appointing three justices who ruled objectively based on the Constitution. And most importantly, let us take time today to give thanks to God for answering the prayers of millions, that innocent babies be protected.”
