  • Sen. Lindsey Graham championed the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

  • "This is a huge victory for the pro-life movement," Graham told "Fox News Sunday."

  • In addition, he championed former President Donald Trump, saying he deserves credit for the decision.

Sen. Lindsey Graham championed former President Donald Trump and hailed the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade ruling during an interview on "Fox News Sunday."

"This is a huge victory for the pro-life movement. President Trump deserves a lion's share of credit here. He fought like a tiger to put three constitutional conservative judges on the court," the South Carolina senator said. "He stood behind Kavanaugh and all of us who have been working for the last 50 years to get this right and to have a constitutional reset."

"Friday was a glorious day," Graham added.

The highest court's conservative majority delivered the ruling on Friday, giving the states the authority to create their own abortion laws, as Insider reported. Many Americans flooded the streets outside the Supreme Court protesting the decision, while pro-life advocates were ecstatic about it.

Separately, Trump also praised the decision and even took credit for it in a statement he released on Friday.

"Today's decision, which is the biggest WIN for LIFE in a generation, along with other decisions that have been announced recently, were only made possible because I delivered everything as promised, including nominating and getting three highly respected and strong Constitutionalists confirmed to the United States Supreme Court," the statement said.

During Fox News Sunday, Graham said the "radical left are constitutional anarchists" and told them to "elect people who agree with you."

He continued: "To the left, the way you do this is to do what we did. You take it to the ballot box, you don't try to destroy America. These constitutional anarchists like AOC, have to be dealt with and there will be a backlash  against this effort to intimidate our judges."
