New Era, Same Mission: Protecting Life

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court found, in the U.S. Constitution, an invisible “right” to kill preborn children. Even before that horrendous decision, National Right to Life was organizing and mobilizing state affiliates to defend the right to life for our littlest brothers and sisters. It took 49½ years of determination and persistence, but Roe v. Wade and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions were finally overturned in the June 2022 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Since the Dobbs decision, in which the Court righted the terrible wrong of Roe, we have seen the state of abortion in the United States shift dramatically as many states moved to enact laws that would protect unborn children and their mothers from the tragedy of abortion. At the same time, pro-abortion advocates and politicians in other states moved to enshrine into state law the most extreme abortion protections possible.

NRLC and its affiliates will continue to promote legislative efforts that provide legal protection to unborn children. We will also continue to offer hope and help to their mothers.

No woman should be led to believe that ending the life of her unborn child is the “solution” to any current difficulty she may be facing. America is better than that. Pro-life education and legislative efforts are making an impact on our culture and in the lives of women facing unexpected pregnancies.

But there is still much to be done.
