On the 50th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade…

by | Jan 20, 2023

On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court handed down the devastating Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions, and thus introduced abortion on demand in the USA. On June 24, 2022, the Court in Dobbs v. Jackson overturned these cases, finding no constitutional right to abortion. Nevertheless, it left us with 64,443,118 deaths of innocent unborn babies.

To give you an idea of how many lives have been lost since Roe v. Wade, the blacked out states on this map represent a population of 64,323,828—less than the number of babies who died due to Roe v. Wade.

We do not know what those children, had they been allowed to live, would have grown up to be or the number of lives they might have saved. But we do know this: If we do not continue this battle and protect innocent human life, the map will have more blacked out states next year, and the year after, and the year after that.

Please join us and be a part of the solution. National Right to Life is working to protect the babies and their mothers. But we need your help.
