Letter to the Editor: Respect for life

Concerned Women for America of South Dakota State Director Linda Schauer’s letter to the editor on overturn of Roe v. Wade was recently published in the Rapid City Journal. For those who do not have a subscription, the letter to the editor is printed below.

 

Letter to the editor: Respect for life
July 8, 2022

We are grateful for the overturning of Roe v. Wade and for South Dakota’s 2005 trigger statute prohibiting abortion except to save the life of the mother. We mourn the lives of over 60 million babies who were victims of the wrongly held decision of the Court in 1973 that legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. We grieve with those mothers (and fathers) who felt it expedient to abort their baby and now live with grief and regret and sometimes physical scars.

 

We are thankful for those heroes who started and labored in the right-to-life effort. Many sacrificed their time and treasure to save babies. They prayed outside abortion facilities, counseled mothers at pregnancy care centers, and sought laws to restrict the deadly practice.

 

We are not so naive as to think that no more abortions will occur. After 50 years of a culture of death, we still have hearts and minds to change. We must continue to lovingly support and encourage women in their pregnancies. We must declare respect for life from the moment of conception and understand that all life is precious. We must recognize that we are created in the image of God.

Question for a Pro-life OB/GYN: Next Steps in a Post-Roe America

By | Dobbs, News and Events, YWA | No Comments

Since June 24, 2022, when the Supreme Court ruled in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that “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,” dangerous lies and misconceptions regarding abortion laws have circulated around social media and in the news.

 

Young Women for America (YWA) is hosting Dr. Bill Lile, a board-certified OB/GYN and pro-life speaker, on Monday, July 11,  to help arm YWA leaders with the truth concerning the overturn of Roe so that they are able to compassionately dispel any lies and encourage women that “pro-life is pro-woman.”

 

This informative event is open to all pro-life activists, young and seasoned alike, who are interested in hearing first-hand from a pro-life medical doctor as we transition our nation to a post-Roe America.

Concerned Women for America of North Dakota Supports
Bipartisan “Trigger Statute” Soon to Go Into Effect

 

Bismarck, North Dakota – Attorney General Drew Wrigley announced this morning that he hand-delivered a letter to the North Dakota Legislative Council today in response to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

 

The 2007 bipartisan “trigger bill,” House Bill 1466, banning abortion, was written to take effect should the Roe precedent be overturned. Its primary sponsor was former Rep. James Kerzman, a Democrat.   Many other Democrat House members voted to pass the bill, including the current Minority Leader, Sen. Joan Heckaman (New Rockford), Sen. Richard Marcellais (Belcourt), and Sen. Tim Mathern (Fargo).

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of North Dakota State Director Linda Thorson, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the certification of the 2007 legislation regulating abortion:

“We are grateful that the North Dakota Legislature passed a strongly supported bipartisan ‘trigger statute’ that goes into effect next month! North Dakota stands ready to welcome women and unborn children. Our citizens, members of the state legislature, and our state administration have strongly supported a culture of life that protects all.”

 

“We are not so naive as to think that no more abortions will occur. After 50 years of a culture of death, we still have hearts and minds to change. We must continue to lovingly support and encourage women in their pregnancies. We must declare respect for life from the moment of conception and understand that all life is precious. We must recognize that we are created in the image of God.”

It’s Now In Our Hands – Will You Join Us?

By | California | No Comments

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned the Roe v. Wade decision giving the law and authority to the states to decide on how to protect the rights of the unborn. It is time to celebrate a historic victory! It is time to recognize the power of prayer. Thank you to everyone who tirelessly prayed and worked on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case at the state and national levels.  This is evidence that all the work you are doing DOES bear fruit.

 

Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the lives saved by this decision.

 

Over 40 years ago, Mrs. Beverly LaHaye founded Concerned Women for America around her kitchen table with a few praying women for legislation such as Roe v. Wade because it did not represent her as a Christian, as a woman, as a wife, or as a mother. Now, Concerned Women for America is the largest public policy women’s organization in the nation, having a strong pro-life voice in the media, in the courts, on Capitol Hill, in state and local governments, in high school, on college campuses, and in culture.

This week, Concerned Women for America (CWA) of California participated in the California March for Life. Prior to the start of the march, CWA of California hosted a prayer vigil to pray for life, for safety at the March for Life, prayers to bless families in California, for the California legislature to pass life-giving bills, and praying for the Supreme Court Justices to overturn Roe. Hearts were softened and prayers were answered! We need to enter the throne room carrying our banners and noise makers and praise the LORD Hallelujah!

 

More pictures from the day here.

The battle is not over. The end of Roe did not make abortion illegal.

The Court’s decision gave law and authority back to the people in states, which means now more than ever, recognize that your voice really matters. Engage with your local and state representatives. Continue your prayer efforts and be in the know about your state government. Ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s a matter of two paired hearts, the mom and her child.
 
Join with me in prayer for hope, support, and knowledge that there are networks of churches, pregnancy health centers, and medical clinics that provide nurturing environments that give free support, from prenatal care to counseling and adoption services to diapers and other childcare supplies.
 
God does have a plan for this nation. Praise the LORD and Hallelujah for this victory for life!

God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and action!

Missouri First State to Ban Abortion

By | Missouri | No Comments

Concerned Women for America of Missouri is excited and proud that Missouri is the first state to ban abortion after the announcement of the overturning of Roe v Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. A trigger clause was added to HB126 in 2019, so when Roe was overturned, Missouri would ban abortions.

 

Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt (Republican) announced the activation of the state’s trigger law shortly after the high court’s decision was released. Read more here.

 

The work in the pro-life movement doesn’t end, but it is a new day in America and Missouri.

Supreme Court Overturns Roe vs. Wade
Missouri First State to End Abortion

 

Jefferson City, MO – In a 6-3 decision last Friday, June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, sending the battle to protect life back to the states. On that same day, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (Republican) issued an opinion to the Missouri Revisor of Statutes that “triggers” parts of Missouri’s House Bill 126, effectively ending abortion in the State of Missouri. Missouri is the first state in the country to do so.

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri State Director Bev Ehlen, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, had this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision and the actions of Attorney General Schmitt:

 

“It was a great day for our country. Every child deserves the right to life. Roe was wrong from the start. The Court’s significant decision is welcomed after decades of pro-life activism. Individual states are now finally free to protect life. 

“Our gratitude goes to our great God and those thousands of pro-lifers who have stood for the sanctity of human life in so many ways over these past 49 years.”

Roe vs. Wade is Overturned! CWA of Texas Responds

June 24, 2022  

FOR MORE INFORMATION: Ann Hettinger (972) 658-4204

 

Concerned Women for America of Texas

Applauds the SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade

 

Rockwall, Texas – In America, after forty-nine years of living with the unjust United States Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, today it has been rightfully overturned. This decision by the Court reveals the incorruptibility of these Justices. They were unjustly targeted by the left, and they stood strong. We are thankful for them.

 

Texas has determined that children, still in the protection of their mother’s womb, will be safe from destruction. The 87th Legislature in 2021 passed HB 1280, authored by Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-District 98), sponsored by Sen. Angela Paxton (R-District 8), and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott. This statute bans abortion in Texas, except if the continuation of the pregnancy would endanger the life of the mother. The act takes effect in 30 days, now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Also, because there was a ban in Texas statutes in 1973 when this decision was handed down, some believe the original ban can be immediately enforced.

 

Ann Hettinger, State Director of Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Texas, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision:  

 

“CWA of Texas has worked diligently for years to do two things: First, support, with life-affirming services, women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies. Second, we have worked to educate citizens on the value of every human life and the promise it brings to the future of Texas and our nation. 

 

“We have worked to elect officials who have stood fearlessly for these precepts and have undergirded women with functional governmental help. We are sincerely grateful to all the leaders who have served our State through the years, our Governors, our Lt. Governors, our State Senators and Representatives. They have faced hostility, ridicule, and opposition in every vote, and yet they have remained faithful to their commitment to life.

 

“We will continue to support all families when they are challenged with unplanned pregnancies. We believe every child deserves protection, provisions, and most of all, love. When public policy issues arise, we will stand for life!”

Conservative Women’s Group Applauds the Overturning of Roe

 

Leola, South Dakota – We are grateful that in 2005 the South Dakota Legislature strongly supported a “trigger statute” that goes into effect now that Roe is overturned. Over 60 million unborn baby deaths later, the Court has finally recognized that there is no right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution. South Dakota now stands ready to welcome women and unborn children. Our citizens, members of the state legislature, and our state administration strongly support a culture of life that protects all. 

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of South Dakota State Director Linda Schauer, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court decision:

 

“We appreciate our past and present pro-life legislatures and governors who passed some of the strongest pro-life informed consent restrictions in the nation as well as the trigger statute. I’m reminded of Sen. Tom Hansen’s (R-District 22) remarks during the Senate debate on our trigger statute, ‘Killing an innocent human being, whether born or unborn, is wrong. That is not something we do in a civilized society.’

 

“We are not so naive as to think that no more abortions will occur. After 50 years of a culture of death, we still have hearts and minds to change. We must continue to lovingly support and encourage women in their pregnancies. We must declare respect for life from the moment of conception and understand that all life is precious. We must recognize that we are created in the image of God.”

CWA of New Mexico State Director Nickie McCarty, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision:

 

“Last year, Democrat Gov.

Now that the Supreme Court has finally overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, it is up to us, the people of New Mexico, to do our part. We must work tirelessly to elect legislators and a governor who support the culture of life.

 

“The Dobbs decision will allow the citizens of New Mexico to debate and discuss this issue with their state legislators. Decisions about abortion going forward will be made by New Mexicans, not by judges. That is ultimately a very good thing.”

Frankfort, Kentucky – The Commonwealth of Kentucky’s majority pro-life legislature and a strong support network of pro-life groups have worked hard for many years to transform hearts and minds of Kentuckians regarding the value of human life in the womb.

Concerned Women for America of Louisiana State Director Laura Huber, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision:

 

“In 2006, the Louisiana legislator passed the Human Life Protection Act, which ensures that the state of Louisiana has the authority to prohibit abortion following the reversal of Roe v. Wade. In addition, the Louisiana Love Life Amendment passed in 2020 protects our pro-life laws prohibiting state judges from ‘finding’ a right to abortion or funding abortion in the Louisiana Constitution.

 

“And just this week, Gov. Bel Edwards signed into law several pro-life bills. The Governor made this statement on the bill signing, ‘My position on abortion has been unwavering. I am pro-life and have never hidden that fact.’

 

“Organizations around Louisiana stand ready to support, encourage, and advocate for pregnant mothers and children. Through solid resources to assist and good legislation, Louisiana is prepared to support a culture of life that protects all.”

Indefensible Roe –The Spiritual Track

By | Indefensible Roe, LBB, Legal, News and Events, Publications, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

Thank you for reading. Throughout the Indefensible Roe series, we have explored how the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that opened the door to the more than 62 million babies killed in abortion in the U.S. since 1973 has no basis to stand on today as the Supreme Court reexamines its validity in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The Supreme Court’s meddling in abortion policy has been a complete failure—a betrayal of the most fundamental principles of liberty. We have discussed how Roe and its supporting cases are indefensible legally, as a matter of policyscientifically, and today we explore perhaps its most tragic failure: the spiritual one.

Though some may be tempted to dismiss this aspect of the discussion as somehow outside the bounds of the legal/policy discussion, I submit to you that the injustice of abortion strikes at the heart of the legal case. As Aquinas put it, an unjust law is no law at all, but a sort of violence:

Human law is law only by virtue of its accordance with right reason; and thus it is manifest that it flows from the eternal law. And in so far as it deviates from right reason it is called an unjust law; in such case it is no law at all, but rather a species of violence. (Summa Theologiae, Ia-Ilae, q. xciii, art. 3, ad 2m.)

Further, the social consequences of the spiritual atrophy our country has suffered in the last 50 years, following the selfish, deathly path of abortion, have brought our country to the brink of self-destruction.

Look around. We are not a healthy nation.
