Dobbs Decision: Our Representatives Can End Decades of Injustice for Unborn Babies and Moms

Press Releases · Jun 24, 2022

WASHINGTON – Heritage Action, a national conservative grassroots organization with two million activists nationwide, today released a statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson following the official release of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Mississippi.

Today’s official Dobbs decision finally allows the elected representatives of the American people to end decades of injustice and save millions of babies with beating hearts from the ravages of the abortion industry. Every life is precious, and this is a major milestone in our decades-long fight to protect life.

This victory for life is but the first step in our fight for the unborn. State and federal lawmakers will once again be free to advance protections for life. American public opinion has advanced with science – mothers have been able to see ultrasounds and hear their baby’s heartbeat at six weeks. Recognizing that, over the past 50 years Americans have steadily become more passionate about protecting life, and the twenty-six states with protections for life already in place reflect the desire of the American people to defend unborn babies. Now, other states must follow the lead of governors in South Dakota, South Carolina, Florida and Nebraska, in calling for special sessions and new legislative initiatives to protect life, and our federal representatives should join the states in enacting new protections for life.

Despite the pro-abortion Left’s best attempts to undermine America’s system of justice, the Supreme Court refused to give into their bullying, harassment, intimidation, and even assassination attempts. As the Court is now met with threats from Democrats in Washington to pack the Court and nuke the filibuster, or attacks from Speaker Pelosi calling the Court ‘dangerous,’ justices continue to carry out their duties with the same standard of justice and impartiality.
