Roe v. Wade is officially overturned!

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! 
For Life,

Harvard/Harris poll offers very encouraging results on abortion questions

Dave Andrusko

By Dave Andrusko

No one would ever suspect that abortion polls conducted by Harvard/Harris would be tilted in a pro-life direction. That’s why the results of the latest poll, conducted May 18-19, are a real shocker.

#1. “Plurality of Voters Say abortion should only be permitted in cases of rape or incest.” 43% to be exact. 

Another 27% would allow abortion up until 15 weeks. The case the Supreme Court heard December 1 dealt with Mississippi’s law that banned abortions after the 15th week.

#2. “Do you think that a fetus is viable at...?” A whopping 39% said the child is viable at 6 weeks, paralleling the Heartbeat Law in Texas. An additional 13% said viability begins at 12 weeks. Another 17% said viability begins at 16 weeks.

#3. “In Roe v. Wade the Supreme Court held that women had the right to have an abortion until the first 24 weeks of pregnancy. Do you think the Supreme Court should…?”

35% responded “Repeal Roe v. Wade, entirely leaving abortion laws to the states.”

38% said “Affirm Roe v. Wade as it is.” Of course, as presented, respondents would not know that the only thing preventing abortions from being done up until birth is finding an abortionist with a strong enough stomach. Another 19% said “Make the date to have abortion 15 weeks instead of 24,” a limitation which Roe does not allow.

It really gets interesting now. “If the court rolled back Roe v. Wade entirely leaving all abortion laws to the states would you favor or oppose that change?” Almost exactly even: 49% would favor this reversal, 51% would oppose.

They compare these results to the results of a November 2021. 46% would favor rolling back Roe, 54% opposed—a net gain of 3%.

How much had people heard about Justice Alito’s leaked draft opinion?  “Have you heard or not heard about a recent Supreme Court draft opinion that was publicly leaked which showed the court overturning federal abortion rights granted by Roe vs. Wade and allowing states to decide abortion rights on their own?”

Almost exactly three-quarters (76%) had heard.

And then the politics of the leaked opinion: “Are you more likely to vote Democrat or Republican because of this leak, or will it not make a difference?” 34% said Republican, 32% said Democrat, and 34% said it would make no difference.

Fascinating. The public is much closer to the pro-life opinion than the media would have you believe.
