2022 could be the most important year for the global pro-life movement in its entire history. A week ago the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Dobbs vs. Jackson’s Womens Health Organization.

We’ve been building up to this for a long time. In 1973, when the Court first delivered the Roe v. Wade ruling, 30 U.S. states banned abortion without exception and 16 more allowed it only in narrow cases. Abortion was generally available in just four U.S. states. But the Court of the 1970s was even more radical than it is today. So it simply invented a “right” to abortion out of whole cloth. Since that decision, more than 60 million children have been butchered in the name of choice.

For almost fifty years, perhaps the single most important goal of religious conservatives in America has been reversing that ruling. When conservatives talk about the importance of the courts, especially the Supreme Court, for many of them, if not the majority, they’re talking specifically about abortion. Yet over and over, conservatives have been betrayed, as party leaders gave them jurists who failed to roll back abortion laws. Consider the Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision in 1992. That was a case where the state of Pennsylvania, while defending pro-life legislation, explicitly asked the Court to vacate Roe. The Court that heard that case had eight Republican-appointed justices, and the one Democrat appointee, Byron White, was part of the original dissent on Roe 18 years before. Three of the justices on that court, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter, and Sandra Day O’Connor, were explicitly chosen with the expectation that they would overturn Roe. Only one of them had to vote that way to make it happen. But instead, all three caved and preserved abortion as a phony constitutional “right.”

It’s taken another three decades, but we’re back again. Once again, the Court should be a friendly one. There is a 6-3 majority of Republican-appointed justices. Every single one of those justices was vetted by religious conservatives and the Federalist Society. Every single one was sold to the base as a rock-solid pick for overturning Roe and removing this hideous stain on the nation’s soul. Will the Court deliver this time? Only time will tell. But know this: If the Court fails again, it will be a sign that the GOP establishment can never be trusted on judges ever again, and only a total replacement will deliver what the base actually demands.

Kathy Barnette is a U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania. The pro-life movement is very close to her heart, for deeply personal reasons. You’ll often hear Republicans say that they oppose abortion, but want exceptions for disabilities or rape. Kathy, though, was herself conceived in rape, and she is only able to join us today because her mother heroically chose life.
