Women for America March for Life Today in Washington, D.C.
Enthusiasm Grows for New Efforts after 50 Years of Roe v. Wade
Washington, D.C. – Today, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), the largest public policy women’s organization in the country, and its Young Women for America (YWA) leaders marched on Washington D.C., to celebrate the overturn of Roe v. Wade and look to the future of championing life in the country. January 22 is the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion federally and was overturned in June 2022 with the Dobbs v. Jackson decision.
“Thankfully, Roe v. Wade is on the ash heap of history, but we in the pro-life movement still have a lot of work to do,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWALAC. “We are working hard at the grassroots level with state legislators and Members of Congress to adopt policies that protect life in the womb.
“In today’s post-Roe America, we are finally allowed to have the conversation about what we as a society now know—by following the science—about fetal development. We can finally put into place stronger protections to stop destroying human life.
“Consistently, since 1973, around 70% of the American people have supported restrictions on abortion. Through advances in science, families and medical professionals are now able to understand what happens in the womb.
“We also need to do more to help mothers make the choice for life. CWALAC is working with Members of Congress and state legislators to support a one-stop-shop website that offers all the resources an expectant mom needs in her journey. One click is all it would take to learn by state and zip code all the available alternatives needed to choose life, including resources for housing, education, healthcare, legal assistance, adoption, mentoring, and other support.
“The Left has pushed for taxpayer-funded abortion up until the point of birth. This position is out of step with the American people.”
