Leaked Draft Opinion Reveals SCOTUS Aiming to Overturn Roe; Christians React

Ed Stetzer, Outreach Magazine’s editor-in-chief, wrote, “If Roe is overturned, the United States might no longer be listed among the seven nations with such extreme abortion laws– including nations like North Korea and China. Roe was (and is) bad law and needs to be overturned.”

“If true, SCOTUS will overturn Roe v. Wade. A grave injustice will be corrected. Prayers answered. Now, the church must go over-and-above to care for mothers and their children,” Harvest Christian Fellowship senior pastor Greg Laurie said.

Sean Feucht, Christian singer and founder of the “Let Us Worship” movement, posted, “Every demon in hell is shrieking tonight!!!!!”

For the Gospel president Costi Hinn said, “Overturning Roe v. Wade will protect women’s rights in historic ways…Starting with the right to live—that has been stolen from the millions and millions of baby girls who’ve been murdered for decades in America. Let justice roll…”

Danny Akin, President of Southeastern Seminary, shared he is “praying more fervently that the @USSupremeCourt will indeed overturn Roe. Prayerful and hopeful! Grateful for brave and courageous justices who are willing to do the right thing. Thankful for God’s Providence in placing these men and women on the court.”

“As happy as I am about the SCOTUS abortion decision—why leak it now? So the leftists’ weeping and gnashing of teeth can get Roberts to change his mind,” Christian author and podcaster Allie Beth Stuckey wrote.

Government Officials Respond

Responses have flowed in from government leaders from Congress members to state officials, including California Governor Gavin Newsom, who said he will “fight like hell” for Roe v. Wade not to be overturned. “Our daughters, sisters, mothers, and grandmothers will not be silenced. The world is about to hear their fury. California will not sit back. We are going to fight like hell,” he wrote.

Senator Elizabeth Warren gave a brief statement to reporters Tuesday morning, visibly angry at the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

“I am angry and upset and determined,” she said. “The United States Congress can keep Roe v. Wade the law of the land. They just need to do it. This is what the Republicans have been working toward—this day—for decades. They have been out there plotting, carefully cultivating these Supreme Court justices, so they could have a majority on the bench who would have accomplished something that the majority of Americans do not want. 69% of people across this country, red states and blue states, old people and young people, want Roe v. Wade to maintain as the law of the land. We have a right! We’ve heard enough from the extremists, and we’re tired of it.”

Senator Warren referred to those in the Supreme Court as “extremists” sharing that “we never are going back.”

New York Governor Kathy Hochul wrote, “I refuse to let my new granddaughter have to fight for the rights that generations have fought for and won, rights that she should be guaranteed. For anyone who needs access to care, our state will welcome you with open arms. Abortion will always be safe and accessible in New York.”
