Last Friday, in a 6-3 decision, the US Supreme Court overturned fifty years of federally guaranteed abortion rights. The controversial ruling has been denounced by President Biden and abortion rights groups. But opponents of abortion, including many religious groups, celebrated the decision as a victory in their decades-long campaign to end legalized abortion in America.
