Family Policy Alliance Launches After Roe Campaign, Prepares for Pro-Life Battlefield in the States

As Supreme Court hears Dobbs case, Family Policy Alliance equips citizens for what comes After Roe

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, as the Supreme Court hears a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, Family Policy Alliance is launching a campaign that prepares for what comes After Roe. The campaign’s vision: 50 pro-life states.

Whether in today’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case or another future case, many legal experts believe Roe v. Wade’s days are numbered. But a Roe reversal would not automatically outlaw abortion across America. Instead, experts agree that most likely, each state would be responsible for regulating abortion. Each state would decide the destiny of their unborn children. States would face vastly different scenarios after Roe, ranging from very pro-life to strongly pro-abortion.

To help citizens prepare for this reality, the After Roe website prominently features an interactive map where users can click on their own state to find out what the abortion laws would be following Roe, and – in most states – how they can connect with their state family policy council to take action for life.

Family Policy Alliance is honored to work in alliance with the network of family policy councils across the nation, a group of independent organizations standing for family values in their states. These organizations have stood for life in their states—in many cases for decades—and their alliance uniquely positions the family policy movement to lead in a post-Roe world.

Roe’s time is up!” said Craig DeRoche, President & CEO of Family Policy Alliance. “After 49 horrific years, Roe’s reign of terror may soon end. But that doesn’t mean abortion will end right away. Instead, the battle for life could quickly shift to the states. Family Policy Alliance, together with family policy councils across the nation, stands ready to compete with the abortion industry—and win!—for every precious life. In a post-Roe world, every pro-life vote matters even more and every state is directly responsible for the lives lost or saved. The After Roe campaign exists to equip pro-life men and women across the nation to join with us.”

The After Roe campaign aims to support pro-life citizens to stand for life on the frontlines of their own states. This involves 1) educating citizens about what a Roe overturn would really mean, 2) mobilizing them to take action after Roe, and 3) preparing to have a truly pro-life world after Roe.

With an eye toward action, the After Roe site helps visitors connect not only with their family policy council, but with national efforts, as well. The site features ways to partner with other leading pro-life organizations including:

  • Alliance Defending Freedom
  • American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists
  • American College of Pediatricians
  • Americans United for Life
  • Christian Medical & Dental Associations
  • Concerned Women for America
  • Family Research Council
  • Focus on the Family
  • March for Life
  • National Institute of Family & Life Advocates
  • Students for Life of America
  • Susan B. Anthony List
  • 40 Days for Life

Creating a pro-life nation requires a movement of people ready to protect the most vulnerable. Each state will have unique needs – which means the movement needs people in every state. Family Policy Alliance invites others to sign the After Roe pledge – stating their commitment to fight for life after Roe. Pledge-signers will be among the first to hear about key action opportunities for life. This After Roe team will be equipped with information on pro-life events, breaking news, educational opportunities, grassroots mobilization, and more.

Even before Roe ends, the work of After Roe has already begun.
