Thousands to attend event on SCOTUS steps before pivotal abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson
Washington, DC – On Wednesday, December 1, the Supreme Court will hear Dobbs v. Jackson, a pivotal abortion case that could allow states to protect human life, and could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade. During oral arguments, Live Action, one of the nation’s leading human rights nonprofits, will be rallying on the steps of the Supreme Court alongside Mississippi’s Attorney General and other allied groups. Several pro-life leaders are set to speak throughout the five-hour-long event, including Attorney General of Mississippi Lorretta Fitch and Live Action’s news correspondent, Christina Bennett.
The Jackson Women’s Health Organization has challenged Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which prohibits abortions after the fifteenth week of pregnancy except in cases of a medical emergency. The Supreme Court’s decision could effectively uphold Mississippi’s legislation and encourage states around the country to implement similar policies.
“Over 60 million American children have been killed by the abortion industry since Roe v Wade restricted the ability of states to protect innocent human lives in their communities almost fifty years ago. The Court must rectify their grotesque 20th-century error and overturn the unjust and illogical precedent of Roe. I am hopeful the Justices will see reason and will allow us to once more protect life.” — Live Action Founder & President Lila Rose.
