It’s been a wild year, to say the least.
In May, someone leaked the the Supreme Court’s draft majority opinion in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade’s green light to abortion on demand.
The leak was completely unprecedented and followed by months of pro-abortion protests outside justices’ homes. The date June 24, 2022, when the high court released its decision in Dobbs, is one that Americans will remember for generations to come since an estimated 10,000 lives already have been saved since the overturning of Roe, according to Catholic News Agency.
And while fate of Roe made headlines and protests raged, another debate was underway over biological males going into women’s-only spaces and joining women’s sports teams. The Biden administration was, and still is, seeking to redefine gender and sex by rewriting an important education amendment known as Title IX. The goal: to expand the definition of gender beyond male and female to include gender identity and sexual orientation.
Fall brought a frenzy of excitement over the midterm elections for members of Congress and statewide offices. The “red wave” so many Republicans predicted didn’t come to pass, although Republicans did manage to gain control of the House.
And somehow, throughout the year, singer-songwriter Taylor Swift kept making her way into the headlines, her fandom culminating in November when ticket sales for “The Eras Tour” nearly broke Ticketmaster.
