Washington’s anti-abortion advocates celebrate Roe ruling, though in a low-key fashion | The Seattle Times

Julie Barrett, founder of Conservative Ladies of Washington, said, “I am pleased with the decision.” Overturning Roe is in line with the Constitution, she said, because it returns the abortion issue to elected state leaders. Though she noted that means abortion remains legal in this state.

For Barrett, the court’s decision doesn’t limit women’s choices. “Motherhood is not obligatory,” Barrett said. “We are not educating people about the choices they have, like adoption. You don’t hear people talking about how to prevent pregnancies in the first place.

“I had an unplanned pregnancy at a very early age. I was 15 minutes away from an abortion, but I backed off. Now that kid is 26.”

Barrett was a bit more willing to note this milestone than other advocates in Washington. She said, “People I have been in contact with are really happy. Christians around the country have been praying for this for 50 years. It is a great cause for celebration.”
