Former President Donald Trump praised the Supreme Court’s Friday ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. The former president, who appointed three conservative justices to the bench, told Fox News that he believes the decision should have always been up to the states.

Fox News reports:

“This is following the Constitution, and giving rights back when they should have been given long ago,” Trump told Fox News.

When asked if he had a message for any of his supporters who may be pro-choice, Trump told Fox News: “I think, in the end, this is something that will work out for everybody.”

“This brings everything back to the states where it has always belonged,” Trump said.

When asked whether he feels he played a role in the reversal of Roe v. Wade, after having appointed three conservative justices to the high court, the former president told Fox News: “God made the decision.”

Former Vice President Mike Pence also reacted to the news to Breitbart, calling for a nationwide ban on abortions.

According to Mediaite:

“Today, Life Won. By overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court of the United States has given the American people a new beginning for life, and I commend the justices in the majority for having the courage of their convictions,” Pence said in response to the 5-4 decision from the U.S. Supreme Court in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

“By returning the question of abortion to the states and to the people, this Supreme Court has righted an historic wrong and reaffirmed the right of the American people to govern themselves at the state level in a manner consistent with their values and aspirations,” Pence continued in the statement. “Now that Roe v. Wade has been consigned to the ash heap of history, a new arena in the cause of life has emerged, and it is incumbent on all who cherish the sanctity of life to resolve that we will take the defense of the unborn and the support for women in crisis pregnancy centers to every state in America. Having been given this second chance for Life, we must not rest and must not relent until the sanctity of life is restored to the center of American law in every state in the land.”

The individual states may ban abortions, Then the Citizens will vote these politicians out of office, and vote in people who are more sympathetic.

That’s the way it’s supposed to work. That’s Democracy at work. Also, the 1973 Supreme Court used the Roe v Wade decision to create a RIGHT that is not now nor ever was written in the Constitution. You have been lied to for almost 50 years and have murdered over 60 million babies that had no voice in what their outcome should be. Let me also remind you that Margaret Sanger, the creator of Planned Parenthood was a eugenicist that wanted to eliminate blacks and brown people in this country. This is the woman that Pro-Abortion radicals look up to. You need to educate yourself about what has transpired over the last 50 years. This country has done something that even Adolf Hitler could accomplish. Hitler exterminated 6 million Jews in Germany in less than 5 years, and the United States exterminated over 60 million babies in approximately 50 years. You should be really proud of that statistic and accomplishment. This country out did Hitler by 10 times.

Mr. President, you da Man! Now if a state favors abortion (God forbid), then the abortionists can move there. And if you want thoughtless and limitless pleasure minus consquences, you’d better move to a benighted abortion state.
