The next steps of the pro-life movement.

Yes! We began marching in 1974 in response to the United States Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade with the promise that we would March for Life until this wrongful decision was overturned. After 50 years, we have finally reached that goal — but the fight to end abortion in our country is not over.
Prior to Roe, each state had the power to make its own abortion laws. Roe stripped that power, making abortion legal federally through all nine months of pregnancy for practically any reason. While it's a major step in the right direction, overturning Roe does not end abortion. Overturning Roe returns the ability to protect the unborn back to the American people through their elected officials both federally and in the states.
The end of Roe means the power to decide abortion legislation will return to the states. Currently, 21 states have pro-life laws in place that will go into effect the moment Roe is overturned. Meanwhile, 19 states are trying to enact pro-abortion legislation.
Now that Roe is overturned, our ability to protect the unborn and their mothers has increased exponentially. We can now effectively advocate for laws that protect the unborn that were previously blocked by Roe and expand the social safety net for moms and families, but we need your help!
The goal to overturn Roe — that’s always been a hope. But a much deeper and harder and loftier goal has been to make abortion unthinkable. To change hearts and minds so that women don’t want the right of an abortion — the so-called right of abortion.
