The US Supreme Court reversed the landmark Roe v Wade ruling on Friday, thereby putting an end to the constitutional right to abortion for women. The 1973 ruling had set in stone the woman's right to an abortion, but now the highly controversial 6-3 decision will allow individual states to permit or limit the procedure.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the court said. Per reports, the US Supreme Court is dominated by conservative judges. “The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision,” it added in the ruling. While many slammed the decision, there were many who were rejoicing on social media as well.

"Speaking as a former fetus, I think this is a very good decision by the Supreme Court #RoeVsWade," wrote conservative author Dinesh D'Souza. "#RoeVsWade overturned! Whoop whoop" did the rounds on Twitter as well. "Women have more birth control options available than any time in history. They are much less expensive than abortions and a life is not ended. #RoeVsWade," one of the tweets read. "Unborn babies won’t die, so stop it," wrote Republican candidate Lavern Spicer. "Prayers answered," one of the tweets read. "Love it, and not because I think abortion should be illegal. Roe was just a bad decision, legally speaking," one of the netizens opined.

"Glory to the highest God, thank you JESUS," read one of the tweets. "I'm beyond thrilled! SCOTUS finally righted the wrong of Roe v Wade. It's an issue for the people to decide, not the courts. We are more than capable of balancing the rights of the unborn and their mothers," one tweet said. "States have had the power to determine abortion law handed back to their officials. Facts: Abortion is not a Constitutional right. Roe lied in her case. There are countless alternatives to unprotected sex. People need to take personal responsibility for their actions again," another tweet seconded.

"I have worked so hard for this day for years. I know many who have fought for decades. Every single tear, every long night, and every insult has been worth it. Roe v. Wade is gone. I have never been more happy," one remarked. "It is a good day. But what I want to know is will Christians now get back to spreading the gospel so hurting people will start to understand the value of the lives saved by this decision," one tweet asked.
