Washington, D.C. – Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), the largest public policy organization for women in the nation, had this to say about the news that the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization—a case challenging a Mississippi law that limits abortions after 15 weeks, except in certain circumstances.
“As the hundreds of thousands of women I represent have made clear throughout the years, we will never stop fighting for the most vulnerable among us—for babies in the womb and mothers in crisis pregnancies. That is why this law in Mississippi was passed. It is a good law that protects women and children. It seeks to recognize the humanity and dignity of unborn children while protecting the health of mothers.
“We are thrilled that the Supreme Court gets another shot at correcting the nonsensical and unscientific structure established under Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. It is way past time for the Roe house of cards to come down. Women deserve better.
“Concerned Women for America members are ready! We cherish the opportunity to have this debate inside and outside the courtroom.”
