With the Supreme Court’s historic overturning of its unsubstantiated abortion precedents, we are officially living in the Dobbs time.
The contrast between pro-life and pro-abortion reactions could not be starker. The pro-life movement has long been ready for this moment – we are hopeful and eager to get to work. The pro-abortion side is marked not by reflection on how they have failed to serve and meet the needs of women, but by lies, terror and another push by congressional Democrats to impose abortion on demand until birth throughout the country.
Now that the people and their elected representatives are free to adopt policies that reflect their values, lives are immediately saved. Within days, at least a dozen states have moved quickly to enact broad protections for unborn children and mothers, and more are set to follow.
RAISING MY DAUGHTERS AFTER ROE V. WADE, SHARING THAT PRO-LIFE EQUALS PRO-WOMAN
Abortion advocates realize they are losing the battle for the hearts and minds of Americans. With the president’s public approval at an all-time low, pro-abortion Democrats are throwing fuel on the fire in an attempt to rally their base.
President Biden denounced the decision, saying, “Women could be punished for protecting their health…poor women are going to be hit hardest. It’s cruel.” Vice President Harris called it a “health care crisis” and cited a long list of unrelated precedents that were supposedly at risk, ignoring Justice Samuel Alito’s explicit writing that Dobbs concerns abortion and only abortion, the intentional killing of an innocent child.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, quickly called for another vote on the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act – legislation that would extend abortion on demand to the moment of birth and block new and existing pro-life laws. This follows her refusal to condemn attacks on pregnancy centers, places of worship and other peaceful defenders of life. More than 40 incidents of violence, vandalism and intimidation have been documented since the leaked draft notice.
SUPREME COURT OVERHEADS ROE V. WADE AFTER WALKING, PRAYING AND KEEPING THE FAITH
Not to be outdone, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has called for setting up tents in national parks to perform abortions — imagine that sight on your family vacation to Yellowstone or the Grand Canyon. Warren announced a bill to “crack down” pregnancy centers just over a day after a center in Virginia had its windows smashed.
Every day we see and hear false claims that women will be thrown in jail, medical professionals will refuse care for miscarriages or ectopic pregnancies, and more. Hillary Clinton said bluntly, “Women are going to die.
This kind of alarmism is not new. To be absolutely clear, abortion is not health care. It’s not a cure for miscarriages or ectopic pregnancies – even Planned Parenthood knows that. As Dr. Christina Francis, head of an organization that represents thousands of pro-life obstetricians, puts it, “The sole intent of an abortion is to produce a dead baby.” Pro-abortion lies endanger countless women and their unborn children. They must not be allowed to stifle the truth that real hope and help are available.
Over the decades, pro-life heroes have built an extensive network of pregnancy centers, maternity homes and other frontline organizations serving women and families. For example, Mary’s Shelter in Virginia provides housing and support for up to three years. Customers at pro-life centers give them higher ratings than Chick-fil-A, Netflix, Chipotle or the iPhone.

Through initiatives like Her PLAN, a project of the SBA Pro-Life America Education Fund, we strive to facilitate women’s connection to public and private resources and address the root reasons why they feel compelled to ‘abortion.
The most ambitious pro-life states expand access to services for women and families while working to limit abortion. In Texas, lawmakers allocated $100 million to the state’s Alternatives to Abortion program at the same time they signed into law their Heartbeat Act. South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem launched a website, LIFE.sd.gov, for women in her state to find community help. And in Georgia, Governor Brian Kemp recently signed “Betsy’s Law” to create more housing options for pregnant women in need.
Pro-life Republicans have also offered many creative policy proposals, including expanding child tax credits, unborn child support, WIC, paid vacation, and more. These and other opportunities for developing pro-life policies are worth considering and discussing.

To win pro-life victories and defeat pro-abortion extremism at the polls this year, the SBA Pro-Life America and Women Speak Out PAC field team is working to reach eight million voters in the states from the battlefield – four million right on their doorstep – to take back the United States House and Senate. In Kansas, we are working to notify voters of an important pro-life ballot initiative coming in August. The Democrats’ pro-abortion platform is unpopular, and we see minds and votes changing every day.
Every pro-life American has a role to play in making sure life keeps winning in the Dobbs time. We must continue to educate our fellow Americans about what Dobbs really means, the humanity of unborn children and the importance of making their voices heard. The fight is not over, a whole new phase has just begun.
