Victory for Human Rights and Life in Dobbs Decision
CWA’s historic fight to protect life moves to the state level
Washington, D.C. – Today, Concerned Women for America (CWA) praised the U.S. Supreme Court for their recognition of the grave error of imposing the Court’s view of abortion policy on the nation by judicial fiat. SCOTUS issued their opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization; in a 6-3 decision, the Court overturned the wrongfully decided Roe v. Wade decision and sent the battle to protect life back to the states.
“Today was a huge victory for human rights and life,” said Penny Young Nance, President and CEO of CWA Legislative Action Committee. “Concerned Women for America has been working towards this decision for almost 50 years. In 1973, the Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court made it legal to destroy life, a child, in the womb up to birth. In 2022, the Dobbs decision has allowed the conversation to begin again about what we, as a society, now know about fetal development and what restrictions should be placed on destroying human life in the womb.
“Concerned Women for America and Young Women for America leaders and activists are ready to continue the fight for the unborn at the state level and work with legislators to make sure our law reflects the voice of the people through the democratic process. Truly, the pro-life movement’s work has just begun, but this decision is a huge step toward CWA’s goal of making abortion unthinkable.”
The court held: “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”
