Breaking: U.S Supreme Court to Hear Direct Challenge to Roe v. Wade
Washington, D.C. – Today, the United States Supreme Court announced it will hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, regarding the Gestational Age Act. The case involves the constitutionality of Mississippi’s new law that limits abortions after 15 weeks. The case will be an opportunity for the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
Lila Rose, President and Founder of Live Action, and author of “Fighting for Life” responded:
“This is the most important abortion-related case in a very long time. We are long overdue for the Supreme Court to revisit Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey – cases that have led to the death of over 60 million innocent children and led many women and men to lifelong regret.
The Supreme Court must acknowledge what science has long revealed: that a unique and individual human life begins at the moment of fertilization. They must recognize that the arbitrary line of viability is an ever-changing goalpost as science and technology advance, and a child’s ability to survive outside the womb should not determine his or her humanity or right to not be murdered in a violent abortion.
Every child, including a baby’s ‘pre-viability’ should be protected from the horrors of abortion and the abortion industry. A 15-week old baby has a face, fingernails, eyelashes, a heartbeat, and brain waves. The Supreme Court should grant equal protection under the law to all humans, even from the very beginning of every human’s life.”
Lila Rose is available for media interviews.
