Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade local advocates react

EL PASO, Texas -- The Supreme Court decides to overturn the the1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. This ends 50 years of Federal Abortion Rights.

The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision to overturn the landmark ruling. States can now ban abortion.

Rough estimates expect half of the states to pursue a ban.

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott had this to say in part:

"The U.S. Supreme Court correctly overturned Roe v. Wade and reinstated the right of states to protect innocent, unborn children. Texas is a pro-life state, and we have taken significant action to protect the sanctity of life. "

He closed his statement by adding that Texas "will always fight for the innocent unborn, and I will continue working with the Texas legislature and all Texans to save every child from the ravages of abortion and help our expectant mothers in need."
