Pro-lifers celebrate the second anniversary of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization

Next Monday is the second anniversary of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a genuinely historic decision which clarified once and (hopefully) for all that there is no “right” to abortion in the U.S. Constitution. That day will forever be etched in my mind because the news dropped while we were in a general session at the annual National Right to Life Convention.

The news—which came courtesy of a gentleman in the back of the room—electrified the audience. More than a few cried. However, we knew then, and has been confirmed over the last two years, that the forces who believe that abortion is the “solution” for everything would redouble their efforts.

The pro-abortion movement—the Planned Parenthoods, the NARALs, the EMILY Lists—could count on the Biden Administration to move (so to speak) heaven and earth to expand abortion into every nook and cranny of our culture. There is nothing that is intended for good that Biden et al. won’t attempt to corrupt. And they have unlimited access to private and public funding.

The Supreme Court will soon decide whether the Biden Administration will be allowed to override Idaho’s Defense of Life Act which would mandate abortion on demand throughout all fifty states in hospital emergency rooms. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) was enacted in 1986 and contains a duty to both a pregnant woman and her unborn child.

The act never mentions abortion.

 “The Biden Administration is attempting to twist the compassionate EMTALA law to push their radical agenda of unlimited abortion,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

As they do with any life-affirming action. It’s what they do, it’s who they are.

Our Movement rejects the either/or mentality. We believe in both/and, love for both mother and child.

Thank you, Justice Samuel Alito, for Dobbs v. Jackson.
