On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court issued their decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization holding that, “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.” We must redouble our efforts to accompany women and couples who are facing unexpected or difficult pregnancies, as well as to offer mercy to those suffering from abortion. And we must certainly better communicate the Church’s pastoral response that already exists at our parishes and in our ministries.
Help Mothers and their Babies
You are not alone! The Archdiocese of San Francisco sponsors Gabriel Project and Project Rachel which helps women and men heal the pain of abortion and to find the path to peace and reconciliation
In California, the overturning of the Roe v. Wade decision has resulted in California’s legislature and governor enacting even more extreme pro-abortion measures. That has included increased funding for abortion, including for those coming from out of state, and changed the law in a number of ways. As part of this, the legislature has placed on the Nov. 8 ballot Proposition 1. We urge a NO vote on Proposition 1, which will allow abortion with no restrictions for all nine months, until just prior to birth. More information here.
Those promoting abortion are also advancing false arguments that state that life-saving procedures in case of ectopic pregnancies would be illegal if abortion were ever made illegal.
