Families, communities, and nations are stronger when every life has value, including the unborn. The 50th annual March for Life was held today in Washington, D.C., the first one since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2022. Roe v. Wade became the law of the land in 1973. The decision spurred the pro-life activist to March for Life.
Even though Roe v. Wade was overturned, unborn babies are still in danger, and right-to-life activists are fighting for them. Last week, the House of Representatives passed a bill to save the lives of babies born in botched abortions. All the Republicans voted for the bill, but only one Democrat joined them.
The House also passed a resolution that condemned the attacks on pro-life groups and churches since the leak of the draft of the decision in early May in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. It was the decision in the Dobbs case that overturned Roe. Even though 78 pro-life groups and 108 churches have been attacked in the months since early May, all the Democrats in the House voted against the resolution except for three of them.
The Democrat votes in the House show that Democrats do not care about unborn babies or the activists who seek to protect them. Thus, the fight for the right for unborn babies continues even though Roe was overturned.
