Roe v. Wade can be overturned by a majority of the Supreme Court or by a constitutional amendment. Some federal legislators and presidential candidates have said they would appoint Supreme Court justices who would be likely to overturn Roe v. Wade, and some have also supported constitutional amendments which overturn Roe v. Wade, either by returning the decisions to legislators or by making abortion illegal outright.
Meanwhile, divorce rates and teen pregnancy rates both rose with the abortion rate and then fell with it from the early 1990s onward — which, again, is not exactly the pattern you’d expect if abortion-on-demand was a major boon to the two-parent household, and pro-life sentiment a significant driver of family breakdown.
I will continue to fight to protect the health of women and lives of preborn children and for the repeal of Roe v. Wade.
The historic Roe V. Wade case changed the course for protecting women’s healthcare and personal freedom for generations to come. Four decades later, the majority of Americans support the premise of this decision; a woman should have the right to choose whether or not to have abortion.
The gift of life is a precious, sacred blessing. It is heartbreaking that approximately 1.2 million innocent lives have been lost per year for the past 40 years since Roe v. Wade. It is my prayer and commitment to continue pushing for laws and legislation that promise to save the precious lives of the very most vulnerable who are entrusted to our care.
I wish the amount of energy put into narrowing Roe v. Wade would be put into school funding or our budget.
As members of Congress, we carry a responsibility and duty to protect those who do not have a voice. As our fourth president and architect of our Constitution, James Madison, once warned, the rights of the minority must be protected. The unborn children of America represent our greatest silent minority. They are the most innocent amongst us, and deserve the protection we afford all other people in this great country.
Forty years after Roe, we have, indeed, come far — but there is still a long road ahead.
Despite knowing the key to a lower abortion rate, the so-called "pro-life" movement refuses to use it. Instead, they feign concern for babies while doing absolutely nothing to help children and everything in their power to make women's lives harder and more dangerous if those women dare to believe that they're entitled to a fulfilling sex life.
I am pro-life, period...A life is a life, and it needs to be protected.
I am very comfortable that Roe v. Wade is working very well.
God gives humankind dominion over the entirety of the world he has created. It’s a tremendous responsibility. Remember, after each act of creation God describes his work “good.” Far from being a self-empowering thing, dominion means service. The best word to encapsulate the responsibility is probably “stewardship.
...a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides. She’s the boss. Her life and what is right for her circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the non-autonomous entity inside of her. Always.

Roe vs. Wade has lead to the deaths of over 55 million unborn innocents in this country.
A majority of Americans consistently support and respect the decision each woman must make about her own pregnancy and oppose efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade.
They were just little babies who did nothing wrong...
look forward to working hand-in-hand with women’s health groups and women’s rights advocates to stand up for the choices and privacy all American women deserve and that, according to the Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade, our Constitution guarantees.
40 years after Roe, the 40 percent of all pregnancies in Manhattan end in abortion. A legacy of carnage in the womb. http://t.co/jzTW5U1A
We assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.
I think it should and I think that states should be able to decide that issue.
In 1973, the Roe v. Wade decision- which gave women the right to safe and legal abortion- was a historic milestone for women’s health and rights.
Roe vs. Wade remains one of the major victories for the pro-choice movement in this country. It was an epic game changer that gave women the legal authority to make their own reproductive decision as to whether or not they wanted to complete their pregnancy.
As our president and Congress begin new terms, it is time to inaugurate the promise of Roe v. Wade for all women.
We know that whether we will live to see victory over abortion is not in our hands. We also know that standing for truth, for mercy, and for justice is always within our power, and so we will keep doing it for as long as the evil endures.
We should not be ashamed to talk about abortion or apologetic for defending our rights. We should be outraged that we still need to do so.
Amen! RT @TheNWHN: With #Roeat40 let's #AimHigh4Women. End Medicaid insurance bans so any woman can afford abortion if she needs it.
The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay.
I fear that this court and the anti-choice activists are happy to adopt an incremental strategy that makes it harder for you to marshal your forces...
