Applauds the SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade
Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania – Now that the Supreme Court has finally overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, it is up to the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to do our part. Pennsylvania stands ready to welcome women and unborn children.
CWA of Pennsylvania State Director Dilonna Coran, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision:
“Every child deserves the right to life. Roe was wrong from the start. Today’s significant decision is welcomed after decades of pro-life activism. Individual states are now finally free to protect life.
“Unfortunately, nothing will immediately change for Pennsylvanians. The fight for women and children now goes to a different level. The Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act of 1989 keeps abortion legal up to six months of pregnancy. In post-Roe, Pennsylvania could become a destination state for those seeking an abortion. According to the Guttmacher Institute, people driving to Pennsylvania seeking an abortion will increase by over 1,000 percent.
“It is up to the citizens of this great Commonwealth to do our part. We must work tirelessly to elect legislators and a governor who support the culture of life and who will pass life-affirming legislation.”
