The Supreme Court has taken up one of the most important abortion-related cases in decades – Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. In doing so, the Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether abortion limits placed prior to 15 weeks gestation are constitutional or not.
Because a decision will not be reached until next summer, this next year will be a hard-fought battle – not only in the courts – but also for public opinion on the matter.
With tremendous advances in science and technology, we know so much about the unborn baby at fifteen weeks, including that the baby has all of his/her functioning organs, a visible skeleton, and is practicing things like sucking and swallowing!
Additionally, public opinion polls for well over a decade show that 65% or more of Americans believe that abortion should be illegal in the second trimester. As of January 2020, Marist Poll found that number to be 7 in 10 Americans who support limiting abortion only to the first three months of pregnancy.
Despite this, immediately following the Supreme Court announcement, pro-abortion advocacy organizations began working overtime to convince Americans they don’t want the Supreme Court to rule in favor of the unborn.
While we have come a long way in educating the American public about the humanity of the unborn child, this moment is a critical one for education. Please stay informed!
Here are a few recent interviews, opinion pieces and articles that explain the importance of this case:
President of the March for Life Explains Significance Behind US Supreme Court's AnnouncementPresident of the March for Life, Jeanne Mancini, shares her reaction to the comments made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki regarding abortion, including her saying "critical rights like the right to choose have been under withering and extreme attack, including draconian state laws." Mancini also tells us more about the big news coming from the US Supreme Court; that it will be taking up the case of Jackson Women's Health Organization v Dobbs. She explains what this case means on a larger scale and whether she believes this could be the beginning of the end of Roe v Wade. Even though this case will not be taken up until the Fall, Mancini discusses whether the Supreme Court is considering any other pro-life cases. She gives us an update on how she sees the state of the pro-life movement at the moment, especially on the state and local levels.
