Virginia Delegate Wren Williams lauded a draft Supreme Court decision reported by Politico that would overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect the lives of their unborn citizens. Williams, who served as a Trump election lawyer before unseating a long-term incumbent and taking office, said the draft opinion has signaled that “the iron curtain is cracking.” He went on to vow that Virginia will work to ban abortion in the state.
In the draft majority decision on Roe v. Wade authored by Justice Samuel Alito, the court rules that the 1973 decision that led to the systematic destruction of tens of millions of unborn American babies was “egregiously wrong from the start.” The Constitution, Alito’s opinion explains, never mentioned abortion. Therefore, it belongs in the hands of the states.
“This could be the biggest win for life, liberty, and limited government that we may see in a lifetime,” Williams, Virginia’s 9th District State Delegate, said in a statement made after the Politico story broke. “For the past 49 years, under the Supreme Court’s unilateral orders, the murder of 62 million unborn children was legalized and sanctioned – against the will of the American people,” Williams went on, celebrating the court’s decision as a sign that “the iron curtain is cracking” on the issue of abortion, long a pet project of left-wing radicals.
“The Supreme Court recognizes the evident truth,” Williams said. “That Roe v. Wade was terribly decided, that abortion was never a ‘constitutional right,’ and that the American people and their representatives should have the power to protect the right to life of unborn children.”
“When this decision is passed down, I will work with my colleagues and fight to protect the unborn here in Virginia on behalf of my constituents,” Williams went on in saying.
“I will never stop fighting for the rights of the most vulnerable among us who have no voice. And I will always stand and vote for Life.”
For Virginia, the potential for Legislators like Wren Williams to take action to protect the unborn represents a huge reversal from the state’s political fortunes of just a few years ago, when Governor Ralph Northam made international headlines by advocating for late-term and partial-birth abortions, as well as outright infanticide.
