Wouldn’t that be an answer to millions of prayers if Roe V. Wade was overturned?
It looks like overruling the decision made on abortion in 1973 could be even closer than we think.
President Trump was asked in an interview with Fox and Friends if Barret would be a possible part of a future 6-3 decision regarding the “life issue” President Trump responded and said: “It’s certainly possible.”
After Barrett gets confirmed in the Senate there will six conservatives vs. only three liberal judges, the President is right, anything is possible now.

If Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, the Supreme Court would move firmly to the right, putting at risk the right to abortion established in Roe v. Wade. https://t.co/HsHzTGSmyM

“Maybe they’d give it back to the states.”

The Guardian covered Trump’s comments and reported this:
Donald Trump has said it “is certainly possible” Amy Coney Barrett will be part of a supreme court decision overturning Roe v Wade, the 1973 ruling which made abortion legal in the US.
“She is certainly conservative in her views, in her rulings, and we’ll have to see how that all works out but I think it will work out,” the president told Fox & Friends Weekend of his new nominee.
Asked if Barrett, if confirmed, would be part of a 6-3 conservative-liberal ruling “on a life issue”, Trump said: “It’s certainly possible. And maybe they do it in a different way. Maybe they’d give it back to the states. You just don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Progressives and Democrats fear the Indiana appeals judge’s strict Catholicism and conservative views will colour any rulings on abortion rights arising from any of 17 cases currently making their way through the courts.

President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett for Supreme Court. Her voting record has been consistently anti-abortion and she called Roe v. Wade an “erroneous decision”. pic.twitter.com/9j3lqwTsAW

BBC News didn’t remain silent and had this to say:
President Donald Trump has said it is “certainly possible” that his Supreme Court pick will be involved in a ruling revisiting the landmark 1973 decision that legalised abortion in the US.
Mr Trump said he did not discuss abortion rights with Amy Coney Barrett before choosing her for the top court.
But Ms Coney Barrett was “certainly conservative in her views”, he said.
She has been chosen to replace the late liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg but awaits Senate confirmation.
Democrats and women’s rights advocates fear Judge Barrett, a socially conservative jurist, could play a decisive role in any ruling overturning the 1973 judgment to legalise abortion, known as Roe v Wade.
Should Judge Barrett’s nomination be confirmed, conservative-leaning justices will hold a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court, shifting its ideological balance for potentially decades to come.
I’m hoping Roe V. Wade will be overturned as soon as possible and when that day comes millions of souls of the unborn in heaven will be singing and rejoicing.
