The U.S Supreme Court declared that abortion is not a constitutional right. Each individual state can restrict or ban abortion. But the opposite is also the reality in that Congress and states can make abortion legal. So, the unborn still desperately need our help!

The recent 50th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. was a victory lap for the pro-life movement. After 49 years of marching to nonviolently protest the U.S.’s infamous Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade–which legalized abortion during all nine months of pregnancy– the high court finally overruled that highly immoral decision and stated that the U.S. Constitution does not confer a right to abortion.
Throughout the world, every year approximately 73 million unborn babies never get to see the light of day. They are brutally dismembered and murdered by abortion. Currently 66 countries have legalized or decriminalized abortion on request.
And although the U.S. Supreme Court has now declared that abortion is not a constitutional right, it did not outlaw abortion. However, at least Congress and each individual state can greatly restrict or even totally ban abortion. But the opposite is also the reality in that Congress and states can make abortion legal.
According to the March for Life, the number of U.S. abortions continues to remain at well over 900,000 each year, but with the overruling of Roe, that number is projected to decrease by 200,000 annually. Saving 200,000 unborn babies every year is a major victory for life. But the fact that approximately 700,000 babies will still be subjected to the deadly violence of abortion each year, remains an appalling tragedy which we cannot ignore.
Americans United for Life is providing invaluable assistance in helping states to craft and pass constitutionally- based legislation to protect vulnerable human beings from abortion and physician-assisted suicide, as well as advocating for basic healthcare for all patients and families, and freedom of conscience laws–recognized by the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights–which protect doctors, nurses and other professionals from being forced to participate in the violence of abortion.
An interesting diverse mixture of pro-life conservatives, moderates and liberals have banned together to build a post-Roe pro-life future that boldly embraces new pro-family policies which provide:
• affordable prenatal, delivery, and new child healthcare,
• expanded child tax credits,
• paid parental leave to care for infants,
• flexible work hours for new parents,
• affordable childcare that supports working parents, as well as policies that help at-home parents, and
• fully enforced prenatal child support.
