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:
We hope you find these resources useful, and we will be sure to keep you in the loop as this case proceeds!
In the meantime, please join us in praying for a favorable outcome that honors the dignity and humanity of the unborn child.
