On December 1, members of The Family Foundation team were at the U.S. Supreme Court as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is being heard, a critical case that represents the best chance at overturning Roe v. Wade that the pro-life movement has ever seen.
The seven Supreme Court justices who decided Roe v. Wade had no idea the decision would cost 62 million American lives and counting. They didn’t know what we know from ultrasounds. And they certainly didn’t know about the incredible pro-life movement that would rise up. But now they do.
After 49 horrific years, Roe’s reign of terror must soon end—either with this Dobbs case or another future case. But that doesn’t mean abortion will end right away. Instead, the battle for life could quickly shift to the states.
Each state would be responsible for regulating abortion. Each state would decide the destiny of their unborn children.
After Roe, Kentucky is well positioned to ban nearly all abortions, both chemical and surgical. We helped pass a “trigger law” that bans abortions in nearly all circumstances once Roe is overturned.
The right to life is the most fundamental right given by God, and every state should have the right to protect its most vulnerable citizens. After Roe, Kentucky will be one of the most staunch pro-life states in the nation – but we’ll still have significant work ahead of us – including Kentucky’s ‘Yes for Life’ Constitutional Amendment on the ballot in November of 2022.
The Family Foundation is proud to partner with the other state family policy councils across the country and Family Policy Alliance to launch the After Roe campaign, dedicated to raising up a movement of people ready to protect the most vulnerable in more powerful ways than ever before.
After Roe, your pro-life vote matters even more. Our lawmakers are even more responsible for the lives protected or the lives lost in Kentucky, without Roe to blame. And, we have more work to do than ever before – supporting babies and their mothers in embracing the sanctity of life.
Even before Roe ends, the work of After Roe has already begun in Kentucky.
Join the After Roe movement today.
