This Saturday, June 24th, marks the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision that overturned the infamous Roe v. Wade decision from 1973. Roe was the case where the Court invented a constitutional “right” to abortion—resulting in handcuffing states that desired to protect the lives of their youngest citizens.
Since then, around half of the states moved to enact strong pro-life protections, while the other half enacted increasingly radical laws promoting abortion-on-demand even up through birth. We are indeed a nation divided on this issue.
But we, and social conservatives nationwide, are not divided—that’s the encouraging news today! To celebrate the anniversary of Dobbs, we released to the media some preliminary results from our Social Conservative Straw Poll revealing that social conservatives stand together proudly pro-life.
Check out our BREAKING NEWS press release revealing those early results below, and join us in celebrating one year of our nation being free from the tyranny of Roe v. Wade!
Some experts estimate that nearly 100,000 children are alive in America today because of the end of Roe. Praise God for that and for these precious lives!
We are proud to be part of the nearly 40% in America who identify as social conservative, and proud to stand with the 92% of those who are fighting for the lives of babies in the womb and their mothers.
If you have not yet taken the Social Conservative Straw Poll to add your voice, please do so today! Time is running out.

Dobbs Anniversary Approaches; Social Conservatives United on Abortion
92% of social conservatives believe abortion should not be legal in most cases
In the only straw poll for and by social conservatives exclusively, of 13,928 social conservatives who have taken the poll to-date, 92% of them confirm that abortion should never be legal or should only be allowed up to 6 weeks, with 66% of that group making no exceptions or making an exception only for the life of the mother. Family Policy Alliance is releasing these preliminary results in celebration of the one-year anniversary of the overturn of Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court’s June 24, 2022, decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Craig DeRoche, President and CEO for Family Policy Alliance responded to these overwhelmingly pro-life early results:
“Since the high Court correctly overturned Roe v. Wade, the President, the abortion industry and the media have been spinning a narrative that abortion is a divisive issue, especially among party leaders.
“But our Social Conservative Straw Poll confirms that for social conservatives, abortion is a uniting issue. Either everyone matters or no one matters. Abortion is a a grave human rights violation against both mother and child. We will continue to compete with the abortion industry for every precious human life—and we will win.
“Social conservatives represent one of the nation’s largest voting blocks at 38%. Social conservatives are finding their voice, and speaking together with clarity — even as division and confusion creep into other political groups. That unified voice carries significant weight on election day, and we have proven that candidates who stand with conviction against abortion can carry the day in the voting booths.
“Glenn Youngkin’s win in Virginia was just the beginning. We predict the 2024 election will be the ‘year of the social conservative’ as voters prioritize issues like abortion, parental rights, and protecting children from sexualization and transgender extremism.”
The Social Conservative Straw Poll will continue to run and gather results. Family Policy Alliance will release the final results on the question of abortion, as well as who social conservatives favor for President in 2024, this summer.
Social conservatives are still able to take the Social Conservative Straw Poll at Social Conservative Straw Poll.
