|Dear Maryanne,Nearly 50 years ago, the March for Life was founded after the abhorrent Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. Since then we have fought tirelessly for the unborn and thanks in no small part to all of you who have marched over the years, that day has finally come!! Let that sink in.|
Roe v. Wade is overturned!
Today, the United States Supreme Court handed down one of its most life-honoring decisions in decades, simultaneously correcting one of the darkest eras in our nation’s history. In 1973, the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade struck down state laws that protected life based on the flawed reasoning that any law restricting access to abortion prior to an unborn child’s “viability” was unconstitutional. Because of this decision, abortion on-demand, right up until birth became the law of the our country.
This is all changing now.
| The Supreme Court’s decision today in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization returns the ability to protect the unborn to the people through their elected officials at the state and federal level. This decision gives Americans the ability to protect unborn babies while supporting mothers and families, too.|
Today we give thanks for this momentous decision and for your part in making history!
Now, we move into a new season to protect life.
The fight is not over, and state and federal officials now tasked with enacting pro-life policies will need more support than ever before. We’ve already seen the pro-abortion lobby aggressively pursuing radical pro-abortion agendas on the state, local, and federal levels in anticipation of a post-Roe era. But our spirits are uplifted and inspired by the Dobbs victory, and we are more enthusiastic than ever to keep up the fight.
In light of this seismic shift in federal policy, we’ve put together a website specifically designed to chart a path forward and unpack what this all means for the pro-life movement. Click the button below to learn more.
|On this momentous and historic day, I thank you for continued prayers, support, and heart for the pro-life movement. You know that there is dignity and value in every human life from conception to natural death, and your powerful and peaceful witness at the March for Life was undeniably essential in making today possible.|
Please join me in celebration and in continuing our mission to empower women and protect the unborn!
