The Supreme Court decision Friday that overruled Roe v. Wade and did away with the premise that there’s a constitutional right to an abortion was Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case originated in Mississippi and was the linchpin in one of the greatest victories for the pro-life cause in the past 50 years.
Mississippi’s governor, Republican Tate Reeves, has been instrumental in building the culture of life in his state to get to this point and hopes that Friday’s victory is the first of many.
“We want to represent to the rest of the country that every single life has worth, every single life has value, and that there are people in this state, and there are people in this country, that care and love every single mom,” Reeves said.
“I think we’ve made progress,” he adds. “And the reason is because I believe in my heart that if we talk with compassion, we have the ability to win people’s hearts and minds across the country on this issue.”
Reeves joins the show to discuss how Dobbs made its way to the court, and what the future holds for life in America.
