It's finally happened. Roe vs Wade has officially been overturned!
In the most remarkable development for the pro-life movement in America and across the globe of the last 50 years, Roe v. Wade -- the Supreme Court decision that fabricated a "constitutional right" to abortion in 1973 and led to the murder of more than 60 million unborn babies in the years since -- has finally been struck down by the Supreme Court of the United States!
This is the most significant achievement for life in our country -- and in the world -- in generations, and marks a moment in time when America can finally begin rebuilding its culture of life and rejecting its culture of death.
But even so, we must be proactive now more than ever, and keep our eyes on the ultimate goal: Eradicating ALL abortion in America!
And with the Court's decision to overturn Roe, we can now -- for the first time in half a century -- make that happen!
Join this campaign calling on state legislators across America to introduce and support legislation that will ban abortion outright in their respective states, and then SHARE it with friends and family members!
In a landmark decision issued by the Court just today, Justices ruled in a 6-3 vote that there, in fact, exists no constitutional right to abortion, and that individual states maintain the ability to permit, limit, or ban the practice without any outright stipulations from the federal level.
The case that was decided, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, involved a Mississippi law that banned all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy, and saw the state's Attorney General, Lynn Fitch, bring forth a direct challenge of Roe in her brief -- the first of its kind since 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
After hearing oral arguments in December, Justices ruled that abortion does not fall under the category of non-specified rights protected under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, effectively overturning the deadly Roe decision, which saw more than 60 million unborn babies lost to the barbaric practice of abortion, nearly 50 years later. Justices also overturned 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey, where the Court formally upheld its earlier decision in Roe.
"The Constitution makes no reference to abortion," wrote Justice Samuel Alito, who penned the majority opinion, "and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment."
He was joined by Chief Justice Roberts and Associate Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett in concurrence(s), while the Court's three liberals (Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan) dissented.
And while, yes, this is of course a time to celebrate, it is also a time to put things into perspective and get to work, because even though Roe is no more, that doesn't mean that laws allowing for abortion have automatically been struck down with it.
It's now up to legislators across America to bring forth legislation that will formally end abortion in their state. If they fail to do so, whatever laws permitting abortions to take place will, for the time being, remain on the books, even with this unprecedented opening to repeal them.
There couldn't possibly be better news than the end of Roe, and it couldn't have come at a better time either, but lives are still on the line...
That's why we must take action now, and demand that lawmakers in our respective states do their duty to stand up for life and mark the end of the Roe era with legislation that stops the killing of innocent, unborn children, once and for all.
Please JOIN and SHARE this urgent campaign calling on state legislators across our country to introduce and support legislation to end abortion in their state in the wake of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Dobbs v. Jackson.
