Significant recent drops & sustained declines over the last 25 years…..the one major increase is in chemical abortions (from 9.6% in 2004 to 43.7% in 2019). Continue to make our voices heard with our legislators, at the annual March for Life, Prayer Chain & 40 Days for Life!!!
As we near the date of Wednesday, December 1, 2021, we want to make sure you are aware of the things that will be happening in D.C. regarding the Thomas E. Dobbs (Dobbs) v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, (JWHO) oral arguments to the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS).
There will be a pro-life rally outside SCOTUS during the oral arguments on December 1, and you are invited to join in from 8 am until noon in D.C. We will rally together to Empower Women and Promote Life (Graphic Attached) and we ask you to share this information with your pro-life friends, colleagues, members, constituents or anyone who might be interested in attending. Those attending are being asked to wear the color blue and to be publicly pro-life!
A Facebook page has been created to help promote the event too.
The Women’s Health Protection Act is a sign of the unease among the pro-abortion forces with the recent pro-life victories in Texas and upcoming Dobbs vs Jackson decision at the US Supreme Court which will determine whether or not a law banning abortion after 15 weeks in Mississippi will stand.
This decision could potentially overturn Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood vs Casey and increase protection for the unborn in the United States. Oral arguments in the case have been scheduled for December 1, 2021 and a decision is expected by June 2022. For an excellent analysis of the case, see Ed Bechmann’s blogpost.
This is a critical moment in the pro-life movement, and we must respond with prayer, fasting, and witness. Please stay tuned for more information about a dedicated campaign of prayer and fasting for the Supreme Court during the coming months as we await the outcome of the momentous decision.
