(Frankfort, KY) – The Commonwealth Policy Center applauds the U.S. Supreme Court decision today to overturn Roe v. Wade. CPC agrees with the majority opinion that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.”

“The Court’s landmark ruling to overturn Roe turns the page on a dark chapter in American history marked by convenience disposal of tens of millions of healthy pre-born human lives,” said CPC Executive Director Richard Nelson. “While this ruling does not automatically end abortion, it takes the issue out of the hands of the federal government and restores authority to the states to decide their own abortion policy.”

CPC will continue its work in promoting a culture of life in Kentucky, and will continue supporting the work of crisis pregnancy centers in caring for vulnerable mothers.
