Roe v. Wade Overturned
The monumental Supreme Court decision that was handed down at the end of last month sent shock waves throughout the nation. After fifty years, Roe v. Wade has been overturned!
Vitae staff celebrated with hugs, high-fives, and thanks to God for this incredible win for the preborn. This decision is one large step toward accomplishing Vitae’s mission of changing the culture and making abortion unthinkable. With the wind in our sails, Vitae Foundation staff will set sail as we continue our important work in rescuing women from the culture of death, which will remain persistent and cunning.
There are many different speculations about what the “New America” will look like post Roe. Earlier this year at a Vitae event, Pro-Life Advocate Abby Johnson said in her keynote address, “If Roe is overturned, we will have won the big battle, but then we will have fifty small battles ahead of us.” For many states, abortion is now illegal and will be a cause for celebration. Unfortunately, at the same moment, pro-aborts in other states will be celebrating legal abortion without federal oversight.
This new dynamic will undoubtedly save lives, but it will also create “abortion meccas” in pro-abortion states. Regardless of federal action, women will still face unexpected pregnancies in all fifty states. Unfortunately, women will still receive abortions by ordering chemical abortion pills online or will travel to states where abortion is legal. Many “woke” businesses have even offered to fund travel expenses for women having to leave the state to undergo an abortion.
Pregnancy Centers will hold their line in this battle. Regardless of the legality of abortion across America, abortion decisions are made in every state, and we must be there to support women in their time of need. Vitae will continue our critical research and will adjust our messages to reach women, no matter the legality of abortion in their state.
At this time in our nation’s history, we ask for your continued prayers and unwavering support. Women will still be seeking help and we must not abandon them when they need us the most.
