It’s been three days since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Already, several states have enacted stronger pro-life laws, while lawmakers in others have announced their intent to stop such laws from going into effect.

On social media and in the news, you’ve probably seen a mixture of reactions. Joy, anger, thankfulness, fear. Beautiful posts about the dignity of life and the invaluable work of pregnancy care centers. Heartbreaking calls to action to fund Planned Parenthood, or help women seek abortions out of state. It’s all there, and it all points to the significance of the moment: Roe v. Wade was overturned.

Here at Family Policy Alliance, we know that’s good news, even the best political news of our lives. We are now living in a nation After Roe: a nation where, at last, we have the opportunity to truly protect human life.

It’s a moment to celebrate and praise God for his faithfulness. At Family Policy Alliance, we began our celebration with a livestream all afternoon on Friday, featuring pro-life leaders from around the country. You can still watch the live stream HERE!

We were honored to be featured by both Fox News and The Washington Times last week with articles highlighting AfterRoe.com.

Minutes ago, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. 

Today is a day that we will remember for our entire lives – and a day which, for many of us, we have spent our entire lives waiting. And now, because of today, millions more will have their lives.

We’d be remiss not to take this moment to reflect on the many, many heroes who have argued in court, passed laws, lobbied their elected leaders, prayed outside abortion clinics, offered a helping hand to women, and so much more to get to this moment.

And yet, really, we have been straining toward the starting line. Today, a unique race began in each of the 50 states and in the federal arena.

Our goal: that every person is treated as a person, no matter their age, size, location, abilities or any other characteristics. This means not only ending abortion but ensuring that children inside the womb have the same full legal status as children outside the womb, that parents and children receive the support they need, and that ours is a culture which comes to fully embrace life.

As of this moment, America has entered a new phase. We are a nation After Roe. We survived. Now, let’s help others thrive.

TO CELEBRATE THIS MOMENTOUS AND LONG-AWAITED VICTORY, WE ARE LIVESTREAMING ALL DAY, starting at approximately 12 pm ET (11 am CT / 10 am MT / 8 am PT)

A very blessed and joyous Mother’s Day to your family from the Family Policy Alliance team!

What an incredible week to see a Supreme Court leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, ending an invented constitutional “right” to abortion, on the same week that we celebrate Mothers!

Our own Senior Vice President of Strategy, Autumn Leva, who recently gave birth to her second daughter, wrote in The Daily Signal what the end of Roe‘s deadly 49-year reign would mean and what the best Mother’s Day gift would be for 2022.

There is a universal truth felt deeply by every mom, found somewhere at the convergence of joy, pride, and heartbreak. The truth is our babies are not really our own. They are ours to raise, guide, care for and cherish—and above all, to love always—but they are unique persons, bearing the image of God, called to their own special purposes, and, though reflecting their parents in appearance and traits, created entirely different from anyone else.

As moms, we feel this truth profoundly from the moment we see their first tiny ultrasound picture, to when we feel their first fluttering kicks while they are nestled safely inside, to when we finally hold them in our arms the very first time, to that first act of defiance as a toddler, to when we wave goodbye at the kindergarten classroom, and to when we finally send them off to fulfill whatever calling God has on their lives.

But this truth is never more obvious to me than when I am holding them both close, feeling the weight of this moment in history where Roe v. Wade may be 
overturned. They may actually grow up in a country without the shadow of Roe.

Read Autumn’s full piece, The Best Mother’s Day Gift: Overturning Roe, at the Daily Signal.

Happy Mother’s Day!

The Family Policy Alliance Team

On Monday at 8:32 p.m., Politico published the draft opinion that shook the world.

Family Policy Alliance team members, in Colorado and scattered around the nation, were mostly at home with their families. But within minutes, they were off and running – and have hardly slowed down since.

Here’s a quick and very abbreviated look at what your support made possible in this momentous week:

That’s a lot – and you did it through your support of Family Policy Alliance.

Of course, other issues didn’t stop. In the meantime, we were still busy on things like the Biden Administration’s Title IX rule on “gender identity” and an HHS proposal to force coverage of transgender procedures – plus continuing state legislative battles.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making this vital work possible! If you’d like to invest in our work next week and beyond, we’d be grateful. May God bless our continued work together.

Sincerely,

John Paulton
Vice President, State Alliances

 

 

 

Family Policy Alliance CEO Craig DeRoche hands out After Roe signs to the crowd at the March for Life.

It was already 10 AM, and the sun was out, but boy, was it cold. Taking your hands out of your gloves for just a few moments was enough to send a chill through your body.

But for as cold as it was outside, the spirit of the place was warm. Students, grandparents, professionals, and young children stood shoulder-to-shoulder. People who might not see eye to eye on every issue walked together, prayed together, sang together.

And these tens of thousands shivered together, raising their signs and their voices for one cause: life.

The 49th Annual March for Life was a powerful gathering, and our team was honored to be there advocating for the unborn and their families.

Our team shared branded After Roe gear, including signs and hats, throughout the crowd. The message? Roe v. Wade’s time is running short. And After Roe? There is life – but it will be up to every one of us to make sure that life is protected in every state. You can learn more about what life After Roe will look like in your state here.

NEW: After Roe hats and stickers!

Hear from pro-life Congressional leaders!

Behind the Scenes: Nicole Hudgens interviews Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-4) on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

The day before the March, our team was honored to interview pro-life Congressional leaders on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

“There’s no other human rights abuse in the world that parades around as if it’s a human right,” said Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-4), co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus. Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-4)) shared about why every person has value, and Rep. Debbie Lesko (AZ-8) spoke the truth: “millions of Americans have been lied to.” Rep. Rob Wittman (VA-1) shared a compelling story about why this issue is personal to him. Plus, Rep. Kevin Hern (OK-1) shared about key Congressional pro-life efforts

You can watch all the interviews here. Be sure to share with friends!

A World After Roe

The most touching sight of the March for Life? As we approached the Capitol, we noticed a little girl atop her parent’s shoulders, carrying her After Roe sign high. And it hit us: after Roe, there will be many, many more little girls like her. They will be alive because of people like you, who tirelessly advocate for the unborn, who speak out to your elected leaders, who share about why you are pro-life with friends and family. Because of you, these little children will be a testament: after Roe, there is life.

Will you help make that a reality?

Standing with you for life,

Meridian Baldacci
Director, Strategy

Roe v. Wade could soon be overturned. When that happens – and yes, we’re saying when, not if – will your state still allow abortions?

The answer varies widely from state to state. In a few states, abortion will be mostly or completely banned. In some states, abortion will sadly remain widely available. And in many states, the status of abortion regulation will be somewhere in between those two – banned or heavily regulated in some cases, allowed in others.

How does your state measure up? Click here to find out.

In every state, it will be more critical than ever to not only end abortion but promote a culture of life throughout your community.

After Roe, we must work harder than ever to protect the unborn, support their families, and foster communities that truly cherish life. But that won’t happen overnight. It will take dedicated citizens in every state advocating for the changes that need to happen in their area.

Your state has unique opportunities – and will face unique threats. And when you click on the image below, you’ll be able to learn about policy opportunities and what’s happening in your state. Plus, in most states, there is a Family Policy Council standing for life – discover if there is one in your state and learn how you can partner with them!

After Roe, Big Abortion will push harder than ever to promote abortion in your state. They’ll do that because they know that life is winning nationally, and we have the upper hand. Will you play a part on the winning team?

Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, a critical case that represents the best chance at overturning Roe v. Wade that the pro-life movement has ever seen. The seven Supreme Court justices who decided Roe v. Wade had no idea the decision would cost 62 million American lives and counting. They didn’t know what we know from ultrasounds. And they certainly didn’t know about the incredible pro-life movement that would rise up. But now they do.

After 49 horrific years, Roe’s reign of terror may soon end—either with this Dobbs case or another future case. But that doesn’t mean abortion will end right away. Instead, the battle for life could quickly shift to the states. Most legal experts believe that the justices will not completely ban abortion in America. Rather, they could return the issue to every state.

Each state would be responsible for regulating abortion. Each state would decide the destiny of its unborn children.

Our mission? Plan for a pro-life America and a pro-life Wyoming.

Family Policy Alliance put together information on Wyoming’s current laws on abortion limits, the safety and health of women, and the protection of fundamental rights here.

Sadly, post-Roe in Wyoming means abortion will still be legal in some circumstances, which means your pro-life vote matters even more. We have more work to do than ever to support babies and their mothers in embracing the sanctity of life.

AfterRoe.com has helpful information about what we’re doing to fight for life in a post-Roe world in our state and across the country.

Sign the AfterRoe pledge to start the post-Roe pro-life movement NOW.

Thanks for standing for life!

In just thirteen days, pro-lifers from around the country will gather in Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life.

Each year since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, this event has drawn attendees from all walks of life. In fact, it’s the world’s largest peaceful human rights protest.

But this year, there is a special weight and significance. Why? Because Roe’s time may soon be up.

In December, the U.S. Supreme Court heard a case challenging Roe v. Wade, putting a world After Roe clearly on the horizon.

The day before that hearing, we sat down with Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life, to learn more about the annual March and why it’s especially significant this year.

You can watch that video here:

This year, our team will be at the March for Life, marching together for a day when not only is Roe overturned, but life is truly cherished across our nation. Will you join us?

You can learn more about the March for Life here.

Plan to join us at the March? Family Policy Alliance will have After Roe signs available for you to march with! Sign up here to get in touch with us on the day of the march. We would love to meet you and give you a free sign for the march!  Also – stay tuned for an exciting announcement coming next week about branded After Roe merchandise!

Can’t make it to D.C.? You can still support the cause from your own state! Some states have their own marches throughout the year. In the meantime, watch for information about new pro-life merchandise you can sport around town and share with friends and family. Details to be revealed next week!

Whether you’re joining us in D.C. or supporting from afar, we hope that you will join us in prayer for an era After Roe – and ultimately, for the end of abortion and the embrace of life throughout our country.

Standing with you for life,

Meridian Baldacci
Director of Strategy

In 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court made a decision that, if it were made today, would be unthinkable and even appalling. Seven of the nine Justices decided that a black slave named Dred Scott was not a person and nothing more than the property of his owner. They consequently ruled that he had no rights as a citizen and no protection under the U.S. Constitution. It took eleven years, but the Supreme Court’s decision was finally overturned in 1868 with the passage of the 13th Amendment that outlawed slavery and the 14th Amendment that granted citizenship to all those born in the United States, regardless of color.

On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court made another poor decision that was even more appalling. That Court struck down state anti-abortion laws, deciding that a woman’s right to privacy gives her the right to end the life of her unborn child. In the Court’s opinion, that unborn child was not a person as defined by the U.S. Constitution and was therefore not entitled to or guaranteed even the right to life.

As in the Dred Scott case, they ruled that the unborn baby was not a person and thus was nothing more than the property of the mother. Therefore, the mother could choose along with her doctor whether the child lived or died. Someone would have to be willfully ignorant not to see the similarity between these two Supreme Court decisions.

The irony of the Court’s decision in Roe was that the year before, in 1972, the same court amended the Bald Eagle Protection Act (of 1940) and authorized fines up to $500,000 in addition to jail time for destroying an “unborn eagle” in its egg. The Supreme Court and the justices who serve on it are not infallible and have made decisions that needed to be corrected – and the Roe decision of 1973 is the most egregious and appalling of them.

Family Policy Alliance has been heavily involved in current efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade with the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case debated in the Supreme Court last month. This case is a challenge to Mississippi’s law that bans abortions after 15 weeks. Pro-life legal experts believe that there is legitimate reason to hope that the justices will return the issue of abortion to the states. That would mean that each state would then be responsible for regulating abortion and deciding the destiny of their unborn children.

Because of that very real possibility, we need to plan and work for a pro-life America as well as a pro-life Rhode Island after Roe. For more info, please visit https://familypolicyalliance.com/after-roe/

This year, I will be attending the National March for Life in our nation’s capital for the first time. Tyler Rowley has put together a 2-day bus trip to the March for Life in Washington, D.C., that is quick and affordable (January 20-21 at a cost of $125). Tyler is the founder and leader of Servants of Christ for Life, a very active Roman Catholic pro-life ministry here in Rhode Island. If you are interested in joining the group, there are still seats available. I would love to see as many as possible attend from Rhode Island. For more info, call Tyler at 401-290-7201 or email him: t3rowley@gmail.com

There is already talk of a bill to introduce taxpayer-funded abortion in Rhode Island. Please make it a matter of regular prayer that this bill will not see the light of day and that our state will once again recognize the value of every life!

For Faith and Family in RI,

David Aucoin
Chairman, Board of Directors – Rhode Island

 

P.S. Please begin to pray The Battle lines are already being drawn and we can expect to see Pro-Abortion advocates out in force
