Trey Gowdy made one statement that caused Democrats to blow a gasket

Trey Gowdy made his name holding Democrats accountable.

He may be out of office, but he’s still giving the Left a reality check.

And Trey Gowdy made one statement that caused Democrats to blow a gasket.

All hell is breaking loose after a draft opinion leaked from the Supreme Court indicated that the Justices would overturn Roe v. Wade.

For nearly 50 years, the Roe decision took the fight over abortion out of the hands of elected legislatures and placed it in the courtroom.

With the end of Roe potentially looming, the power to decide abortion could finally be returning to duly-elected legislatures around the country.

On his Fox News show, former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy weighed in on what overturning Roe would really mean for the country.

“If Roe V. Wade is overturned and the issue reversed to the states, some states will ban all abortions including in the case of rape, incest and when the life of the mother is in danger,” Gowdy said.

“Some states will expand access to abortions and allow it up to the moment of birth, or maybe even beyond in the case of partial birth abortions,” he continued.

“It may be fine for the 50 states to have different views on education, crime, or the legalization of drugs. When life begins is not an issue subject to 50 different opinions,” he added.

“The right to life is not only mentioned in the Constitution, ‘No person shall be deprived of life,’ it is also mentioned on our birth certificate, The Declaration of Independence: ‘Endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights; and among these are also life…it’s right there in black and white in both of our foundational documents,” Gowdy explained.

“Democracy is hard. It was intended to be hard. It’s a privilege earned with the lives and limbs of others,” he stated.

“It’s easy to sit around and wait for five lawyers in black robes to look in the shadows of a penumbra and tell us what our rights are. That is judicial oligarchy,” he remarked.

“It’s harder to go into the public square and the ballot box and the floor of a legislative body and debate it. But that’s what we should do,” he clarified.

“Do it for ourselves. Not wait for unelected lawyers who live lives of virtual isolation to do it for us. Our rights do not belong in any shadow. Bring them into the light,” Gowdy concluded.

Roe was a terrible legal decision that took the power out of the people’s hands and placed it into the hands of judges.

For years, Democrats hid behind the Courts to protect the fictitious Constitutional right to an abortion.

Now the power to decide abortion could finally be back in the hands of legislatures where it belongs.

Conservatives could have a chance to defend the right to life spelled out by the Founding Fathers.

Gowdy’s statement shows that the fight to secure life could only be beginning.
