Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has joined the growing chorus of GOP voices expressing gratitude for the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. DeSantis shared a statement on Twitter.
“The prayers of millions have been answered. For nearly fifty years, the U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited virtually any meaningful pro-life protection, but this was not grounded in the text, history or structure of the Constitution. By properly interpreting the Constitution, the Dobbs majority has restored the people’s role in our republic and a sense of hope that every life counts,” DeSantis writes.
“Florida will continue to defend its recently enacted pro-life reforms against state court challenges, will work to expand pro-life protections and will stand for life by promoting adoption, foster care and child welfare.”
Back in April, DeSantis signed a 15-week abortion ban law.
“We’re here today to protect life. We’re here today to defend those who can’t defend themselves,” DeSantis said at the time. “This will represent the most significant protection for life in this state in a generation.”
