Dannenfelser: The Pro-life Movement’s Work Is Just Beginning; SCOTUS Decision Raises the Stakes of Midterm Elections

Washington, D.C.Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America celebrated a landmark victory today as the U.S. Supreme Court issued its final decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization – upholding Mississippi’s law limiting abortion at 15 weeks, overturning Roe v. Wade, and restoring the right to protect unborn children and their mothers to the people.

“Today marks an historic human rights victory for unborn children and their mothers and a bright pro-life future for our nation,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Today the Supreme Court, in line with modern science and overwhelming public consensus, recognized the truth in every mother’s heart and that pro-life advocates have argued all along: unborn children are human beings, deserving of protection. Every legislature in the land, in every single state and Congress, is now free to allow the will of the people to make its way into the law through our elected representatives.

“An entirely new pro-life movement begins today. We are ready to go on offense for life in every single one of those legislative bodies, in each statehouse and the White House. Over the next few years we will have the opportunity to save hundreds of thousands, even millions of lives by limiting the horror of abortion in many states. In this mission of justice and mercy, we redouble our commitment to women and families – building on a pro-life safety net that includes 2,700 pregnancy centers nationwide and initiatives like SBA Pro-Life America’s Her PLAN, as well as a growing number of state Alternatives to Abortion programs, in order to love and serve both mother and child.

“Today’s outcome raises the stakes of the midterm elections. Voters will debate and decide this issue and they deserve to know where every candidate in America stands, including those who toe the Democratic Party line of abortion on demand without limits. Federal as well as state lawmakers must commit to being consensus builders who advocate for the most ambitious protections possible. SBA Pro-Life America will work tirelessly to expose and defeat abortion extremists using the tools of democracy. Life is winning in the hearts and minds of decent men and women across this nation, and when Americans remember our foundational values, life will win.”

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
