(La Porte, IN) - A local pastor agrees with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, the 50-year-old ruling that gave women the Constitutional right to an abortion.
Dennis Meyer of Bethany Lutheran Church said it's up to the states under the governing rules of the country to decide certain matters like abortion.
"We live in a Federalist system, and that means the national government decides some things and states decide other things," Meyer said.
Meyer also said the ruling does not outlaw abortion. People will still have a right to exercise their choice in states that allow the procedure. Meyer also said he believes in the sanctity of life and that there are better options than abortion, such as adoption.
"I know there are a lot of families that I have worked with over the years that have had infertility issues that would love to be able to adopt a child," Meyer said.
