Massachusetts Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Says Supreme Court Was Wrong To Overturn Roe v. Wade

February 27, 2024

A Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Massachusetts recently said the federal Supreme Court got it wrong when it overturned Roe v. Wade.

Cryptocurrency lawyer John Deaton made the statement while slamming the Alabama Supreme Court.

The Alabama Supreme Court ruled last week that two parents could file a civil wrongful death lawsuit against an in-vitro fertilization clinic where someone dropped and destroyed several of the couple’s unborn children, who were frozen embryos at the time.

On social media, Deaton condemned the Alabama Supreme Court for the in vitro fertilization decision and the United States Supreme Court for its June 2022 Dobbs v. Jackson decision; the latter decision overturned Roe v. Wade and restored to states authority to regulate abortion. 

“Children are a blessing,” Deaton posted on the social media platform widely known as Twitter this past weekend. “Efforts to prevent couples from conceiving are unconscionable and cruel. This is health care and it’s about family. Just as they were wrong on Dobbs, out-of-control judges should not be deciding these things. Period.”

The United States Constitution does not mention abortion. Pro-lifers have argued that the Tenth Amendment explains why states should handle abortion law.

The Tenth Amendment says:


The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.


Deaton is seeking the GOP nomination to run against incumbent U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Cambridge). Warren is expected to win re-election this year, according to Sabato’s Crystal Ball.
