This is a historic time for the pro-life movement in our country.
As of today, we're exactly one week away from the Supreme Court hearing the most important abortion-related case in the last 50 years -- Dobbs v. Jackson -- which may very well result in a decision to overturn Roe v. Wade altogether.
That's right: America is now in its best position in generations to end abortion in its entirety at the federal level.
But even if Roe is overturned, it will still be up to individual states to ensure that abortion is banned outright. And thankfully, some states are already preparing their plan of action for this critical moment as we speak.
In fact, members of the Ohio State Legislature have just recently introduced legislation that would effectively ban ALL abortion(s) in the state, setting a new, fully pro-life precedent for other states to follow.
And, to prepare for the end of Roe, it is critical for other states to follow their lead.
But we need YOUR help to spread the message...
Can we count on you to contact your State Legislators today, and ask them to prepare legislation that bans abortion outright in the event that the Supreme Court does, in fact, overturn Roe during its current session?
You can reach your State Legislators in one easy step using this simple contact form (see right) that we're making available here on LifeSite's Action Center.
Then, please SHARE this important information with your friends and family members to spread the word across your state and our country!
On December 1st, the Supreme Court of the United States is scheduled to hear arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which has been identified by legal experts as potentially the most consequential abortion case since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.
The case (No. 19-1392 on the SCOTUS docket) is a challenge to a 2018 Mississippi law called the Gestational Age Act, which bans elective abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy.
But, there may very well be more on the line than just the fate of this legislation alone.
The Supreme Court's ruling will likely come down to determining whether any state law that places restriction(s) on pre-viability abortion(s) are constitutional -- potentially opening the door to a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade itself.
In fact, the state of Mississippi has already formally asked the Supreme Court to overturn Roe in its own brief defending their law.
That's why it's absolutely crucial to prepare for that moment now.
If, indeed, the Court ultimately decides that life should be recognized as a constitutional right to be protected under the law, every state should begin taking steps as soon as possible to ensure that no innocent life is lost due to the state-sanctioned, murderous act of abortion ever again.
Overturning Roe, in itself, does NOT mean the automatic elimination of abortion in our country. It will be up to the states to do that themselves when the time comes, and some, like Ohio (you can read HB 480 HERE), are already taking action to make that happen.
And now, we need your help to keep the ball rolling...
So please, take a moment today to contact your own State Legislators and ask them to follow in Ohio's footsteps by preparing legislation to ban abortion in your state when the Supreme Court, God-willing, overturns Roe v. Wade during its current session.
