WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Friday, June 24th 2022 the United States Supreme Court ruled in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The majority opinion of the court effectively overturns the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which codified mass abortion across the nation. The scenes outside the Supreme Court were predictable, if not dissonant. Young activists who had not been aborted prior to their birth gathered in their hundreds decrying the move as “illegitimate” while Rage Against The Machine’s Killing in the Name Of blared in the background. Some smiles, hugs, and selfies could be spotted amongst the congregants
Washington, D.C.-based news outlet POLITICO is reporting that an early draft of a majority opinion for Planned Parenthood v. Casey will strike down the 1973 abortion law. POLITICO reports: The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO. The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right. “Roe was
An anti-abortion activist dubbed the “pro life pitbull” of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has spoken out as video evidence (below) emerged of conference Chairman Matt Schlapp admitting he shut down attempts to host a panel discussion on the subject at their latest event in Florida. Alison Centofante – who has served at Live Action, Alliance Defending Freedom, and the Concerned Women for America – took to Twitter on Wednesday to explain her disappointment with the American Conservative Union (ACU) and its conference, CPAC, for refusing to promote pro-life issues in the same way they promote other issues. “I
The U.S. Supreme Court announced it would hear a major challenge to the Roe v. Wade 1973 ruling on abortion. Announced on Monday, the case would decide if states can ban nearly all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy and also potentially challenge Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The justices announced they would hear an appeal from Mississippi that urges the court to “reconsider the bright-line viability rule,” which renders states unable to prohibit abortions until the time a fetus is capable of living on its own. Documents reveal the first question is “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh cited two major abortion-related decisions in a recent opinion explaining when "erroneous precedents" should be overturned.
The New York Times recently polled the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates on the topic of abortion. The results should be of grave concern for the pro-life movement. The survey was completed by Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Joe Sestak, Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang. Steve Bullock, Julián Castro, John Delaney, Tulsi Gabbard, and Kamala Harris did not complete the survey — their answers were pulled from previous plans and remarks. Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick were not in the race when polling was conducted. While the survey covered many
Alabama has enacted the first law in decades to make abortion illegal again in a state. The new law is designed as the boldest and most direct challenge to Roe v. Wade in over 25 years. The law, titled the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, was passed by an overwhelming vote (74-3 in the state House and 25-6 in the state Senate) and promptly signed into law by Governor Kay Ivey. It will take effect in six months if it is not blocked by a court and will make abortion a felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison for any
The seventh-largest state in the U.S. has enacted a law to protect unborn babies from abortion as soon as a heartbeat can be detected. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed the Human Rights Protection Act on Thursday after it passed the state House by a margin of 56-40 and the state Senate by a margin of 18-13. (Similar bills had passed the state legislature in 2016 and 2018 but were vetoed by then Gov. John Kasich.) The law prohibits abortionists from aborting any baby once a fetal heartbeat can be detected — usually around six to eight weeks into the pregnancy
