Walter Hudson Committed to Abolish Abortion as Roe Overturned
Deepening the stakes of the 2022 midterm election, news broke late Monday that the United States Supreme Court stands poised to overturn Roe v Wade, the lynchpin legal opinion which has barred states from prohibiting the killing of unborn children since 1973.
The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO.
The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision — Planned Parenthood v. Casey — that largely maintained the right.
Minnesota state representative candidate Walter Hudson responded to the news on Tuesday, saying:
"... the end of Roe is not the end of our fight for life. Babies will continue to be massacred in Minnesota unless we have elected officials willing to act in their defense. As your next state representative for northeastern Wright County, I will work to prohibit the murder of children."
Hudson has been endorsed by the Republican Party of Minnesota for House District 30A, representing Rockford Township, Hanover, St. Michael, Albertville, and much of Otsego.
