June 24, marks the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade and held that there is no constitutional right to abortion. 

Not surprisingly, the Left responded with an apocalyptic tone. Their false and alarmist claims of fascism, a war on women, and systematic inequality due to the Supreme Court’s decision even went so far as to lead to dozens of violent attacks on pro-life groups across the country. 

But as it turns out, Dobbs didn’t lead to a catastrophe for women’s rights across the country at all. Instead, it merely returned the contentious issue of abortion to the states, where the people could debate the merits of the issue for themselves and let their elected representatives reflect those beliefs. This principle is the core of self-government, which asserts that the people – not the courts – are our nation’s true source of authority.
