On Friday, President Donald Trump lauded the decision of the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, but he also gave God praise for the decision too.
In response to a question from Fox News about whether or not the former president believes he played a part in the overturning of Roe v. Wade as a result of his appointments of three conservative justices to the Supreme Court, he stated that “God made the decision.”
It was truly refreshing to hear Trump thank God in a world where humans get most of the credit for everything.
During his time in office, President Trump chose Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court.

On Friday, the three Democratic appointees to the Supreme Court, Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elana Kagan, wrote dissenting opinions to the majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade.
Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was the case that led to the court’s decision. The case centered on legislation in Mississippi that prohibited having an abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy had passed. A lower court order that halted the implementation of the 15-week abortion restriction was challenged all the way up to the Supreme Court by the state of Mississippi, which is currently headed by Republicans.
Fox News shared these details about Justice Alito’s opinion:
“We end this opinion where we began. Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court’s opinion.
Alito’s opinion began with an exploration and criticism of Roe v. Wade and its holding that while states have “a legitimate interest in protecting ‘potential life,” this interest was not strong enough to prohibit abortions before the time of fetal viability, understood to be at about 23 weeks into pregnancy.
The scene outside of the Supreme Court the moment Roe v. Wade was overturned was a tale of two stories. On one side Christians were singing and thanking God and on the other hand, pro-abortion activists were crying and cursing.
At night though, however, things took a dark turn, and abortion activists took the streets of DC and started lighting American flags on fire and wreaking havoc.
