In 1973, the Supreme Court found a constitutional right to abortion in the landmark case Roe v. Wade. Nearly 50 years later, the Supreme Court is poised to reconsider the legal foundation that laid the groundwork for the abortion debate in post-Roe America.
This Wednesday, December 1st, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for Dobbs v. Jackson, a case that arose from Mississippi’s “Gestational Age Act” passed in 2018. By June of 2022, the Supreme Court will issue its opinion in Dobbs, potentially righting the ship of a dark history of abortion on demand that has resulted in killing 68 million preborn humans in the United States alone. Whatever the result, one thing is for certain: the Supreme Court is uniquely poised to reconfigure modern abortion jurisprudence set into motion by Roe.
The outcome of Dobbs could mark a striking shift away from the deeply flawed viability standard that has governed legal and legislative behavior for the past half-century. Science has changed the way we view the inception of human life, and it’s time for the law to catch up to the science.
And so we're doing everything we can to inform the Court's decision.
Since our inception as an organization, defending the unborn has been central to the purpose of our existence. Whether it is championing pro-life legislation like our Human Life Nondiscrimination Act (HB453), or filing amicus briefs for important pro-life cases like Dobbs vs. Jackson, we are doing our part to advance the cause of life. We're even planning to be in D.C. this week to amplify your voice on the steps of the Supreme Court during oral arguments.
Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity that takes place November 30th. It's also a great opportunity to support organizations that are working to protect the lives of the unborn.
If you support our work protecting life, would you consider making a one-time or monthly donation of $25, $50, $100, or more in honor of #GivingTuesday?
PS: Thanks to a generous donor, every dollar you donate will be matched and have its impact DOUBLED!
Thank you for your continued support and generosity!
