The U.S. Supreme Court’s 6-3 vote to reverse the Roe v. Wade ruling of 1973 has returned to the states the right to formulate their own legislation on abortion without federal edict, which made abortion legal throughout the country. Commentators from Poland, a country known for its strict opposition to abortion, are now weighing in on the decision, including Paweł Lisicki, the editor of Do Rzeczy, who told Catholic Polonia Christiana Internet TV that he is pleasantly surprised by the decision since it was preceded by a campaign of intimidation against Supreme Court judges. 

Lisicki claimed the ruling is a big setback for the cultural revolutionaries.

“This really knocks back the revolution by decades,” he told the channel. “The decision was a radical and negative breakthrough back in 1973, a decision that paralyzed western conservatism” through the misuse of the rule of law. He feels it was a shocking interpretation of the constitution which removed the right to life for a whole category of persons. 

The conservative commentator argued that the 1973 decision activated a process of “abuse of both language and law” which led to other moves such as same sex-marriage. He believes the decision stood morality on its head and abused natural law and ethics. Lisicki welcomed the Supreme Court decision to overturn it, calling it a “great victory for the right to life and a victory for reality and nature over anti-nature.” 

The editor of Do Rzeczy weekly said he believes the U.S. Supreme Court judges have at last returned America to the fundamentals on which any state and society have to be based on, such as the protection of human life, which he argued should be the norm.

“Human life is a common good which must be protected, and this is not a question that can be decided on by any group of judges, but is something that comes from nature. This is what the Supreme Court verdict has given back to the U.S.,” said Lisicki.
