North Carolina Values Coalition Executive Director Tami Fitzgerald made a statement today about news of a possible Supreme Court decision regarding Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and its implications on abortion law.
RALEIGH, NC: “If the Supreme Court’s draft opinion leaked last night turns out to be the Court’s final opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, we wholeheartedly support it. However, until the Court issues its final opinion, we must wait and see. We believe the people of North Carolina have the right to decide the issue by enacting laws that protect unborn children and honor women, and that is exactly what we are prepared to do. If Roe and Casey are overturned, as the draft opinion indicates, we must build consensus for the strongest protections possible for unborn children and women in North Carolina, and we are ready for this moment in history.
“We must also continue to support pregnant women and children in need, as the pro-life movement has already been doing in our state for decades. There are hundreds of pro- life pregnancy centers, thousands of churches, and millions of North Carolina citizens who are here to provide a safety net for women who experience unplanned pregnancies and their babies. The pro-life movement is here to love and serve both mother and child.”
