Marjorie Taylor Greene Praises Reported Roe v. Wade Ruling: 'Our God is Bigger'

Marjorie Taylor Greene has praised a report suggesting the Supreme Court backs overturning the landmark abortion rights ruling Roe v. Wade.

In a series of tweets, the Georgia Congresswoman expressed her support for the majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito, which concluded that the court is prepared to overturn the 1973 case that legalized abortion across the country.

Among the tweets posted by Greene was an image of a crowd that had gathered outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. with the caption: "Our God is bigger."

The draft document, obtained by Politico, says the SCOTUS will vote to strike down Roe v. Wade, along with a subsequent 1992 decision, Planned Parenthood v Casey, which cemented the constitutional right to abortion services in the U.S. but allowed individual states to implement restrictions on when the procedure can be performed.

According to Alito, the landmark ruling that legalized abortion nationwide was "egregiously wrong from the start."

"Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division," Alito added.

"The inescapable conclusion is that a right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the Nation's history and traditions."

If confirmed, the 98-page draft opinion obtained by Politico does not mean that the decision is final and a decision on Roe v. Wade may still alter when the court rules on the case in late June or early July.

In another tweet, Greene described the report that the Supreme Court is preparing to overturn Roe v. Wade as "the most significant and glorious news of our lifetime" while posting a video of her delivering a statement.

"I'm overwhelmed with emotion because this is the best news of our lifetime," Greene said in the video.

"This is a great victory. It's a great victory for God and the unborn who have been innocently slain for years, my entire lifetime."

The Supreme Court opinion was drafted in February and could still be subjected to multiple rewrites. It is unclear if there has been any subsequent changes to the draft opinion.

The alleged leak of the Supreme Court draft is also unprecedented, with the Justice's opinions and discussions of such votes usually held in secret until the final ruling is published.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz was another lawmaker who praised SCOTUS' apparent backing for overturning Roe v. Wade as "nothing short of a massive victory for life" while adding he is "appalled by the shocking breach of trust" posed by the leak.

"This is a blatant attempt to intimidate the Court through public pressure rather than reasoned argument," Cruz tweeted.

"I hope my fellow former clerks and the entire legal community will join me in denouncing this egregious breach of trust."

Republican senator Tom Cotton also condemned the apparent leak while praising what it revealed.

"The Supreme Court & the DOJ must get to the bottom of this leak immediately using every investigative tool necessary," Cotton tweeted.

"In the meantime, Roe was egregiously wrong from the beginning & I pray the Court follows the Constitution & allows the states to once again protect unborn life."

As expected, the details of the leaked draft opinion has been met with outrage from those on the other side of the abortion debate.

In a joint statement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said voting to overturn Roe v. Wade would be an "abomination" and "one of the worst and most damaging decisions in modern history."

"Several of these conservative Justices, who are in no way accountable to the American people, have lied to the U.S. Senate, ripped up the Constitution and defiled both precedent and the Supreme Court's reputation – all at the expense of tens of millions of women who could soon be stripped of their bodily autonomy and the constitutional rights they've relied on for half a century," the pair added.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul said she was "horrified" by the apparent draft Supreme Court opinion.

"For the sake of women across the country, this should not be the Supreme Court's final opinion when it comes to abortion rights," Hochul added in a statement.

"We have been fighting this battle for too long. I refuse to go backwards. I refuse to let my new granddaughter have to fight for the rights generations have fought for and won, rights that she should be guaranteed."

The Supreme Court has been contacted for comment.
