Walking With Moms In Need

“Every human life, unique and unrepeatable, has value in and of itself; it is of inestimable value”

Pope Francis

“In firmly rejecting ‘pro-choice’ it is necessary to become courageously ‘pro woman,’ promoting a choice that is truly in favor of women. … The only honest stance, in these cases, is that of radical solidarity with the woman.”

Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge Chairman, USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities

The Truth about Abortion and Women’s Health

– Abortion does not save women’s lives.
– Outlawing abortion will not affect treatment for miscarriage.
– Women can get the lifesaving treatments they need—without abortion.

Background Information

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.”

In response, California doubled down on abortion. Voters approved Proposition 1 in November 2022 which codifies a right to abortion for all nine months until birth in the California state constitution. In addition, the overturning of the Roe v. Wade decision has resulted in other extreme measures being enacted by California’s legislature and governor.

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.

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.
