The Best Opportunity to Overturn Roe (December 1, 2021)

“Then I charged your judges at that time, saying, ‘Hear the cases between your fellow countrymen, and judge righteously between a man and his fellow countryman, or the alien who is with him.” – Deuteronomy 1:16

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court will begin hearing oral arguments for the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. This is a massive case, as it provides the best opportunity to overturn Roe since the 1973 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to legalize abortion.

The case centers around the constitutionality of Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act. This law does not allow a mother to have an elective abortion after fifteen weeks, which is nine weeks before the “point of viability” at twenty-four weeks. This law, furthermore, is a direct challenge to the abortion jurisprudence of Roe v. Wade.

Scott Stewart, the solicitor general of Mississippi, will be arguing in defense of the Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act and for the unborn this morning before the nine Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

This morning, members of The Family Foundation team have assembled on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court as the Justices of the High Court hear the arguments for this momentous case. There is also a rally that the members of
The Family Foundation team will attend where pro-life allies from all across America are uniting together in support of overturning Roe.

The Family Foundation has joined with 21 other state family policy organizations in filing an amicus curiae brief asking our nation’s high court to protect the common law right to life and overrule Roe in the case.

Father, we pray that this case will be used to overturn the 1973 decision to legalize abortion. Lord, please give Scott Stewart and his team Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as they present their arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court. Father, give the U.S. Supreme Court Justices the courage and conviction to rule righteously in this case. May America one day be a land where every life is cherished and protected. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
