During the nearly 50 years that Roe v. Wade was in place, over 60 million babies were denied the right to life. This tragedy is a devastating mark upon our culture, and even more appalling is that there is still an entire industry profiting from each child killed in the womb.
Thankfully, in the Dobbs decision, the Supreme Court upheld Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act and overturned the Roe decision that wrongly found a constitutional right to abortion. Alliance Defending Freedom was proud to assist the state of Mississippi in helping draft and defend its pro-life law all the way to the Supreme Court. With this ruling, states are once again empowered to protect women and their babies. ADF continues to work to put an end to the abortion industry and restore a culture that affirms the human right to life.
