.- The Committee for Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a new effort to dispel myths about Roe v. Wade. Brief informational cards, called “Roe Reality Checks,” will be distributed regularly to members of Congress and the media, each highlighting a basic fact about Roe v. Wade or its impact.

The cards are part of a broader educational campaign by the Pro-Life Committee called The Second Look Project, which presents basic factual information about abortion so people can reconsider the issue.

“Opinions on abortion are often based on mistaken perceptions or on emotions. The Second Look Project is innovative because it provides basic facts, and lets the facts speak for themselves,” said Cathy Cleaver Ruse, Esq., director of planning and information for the USCCB Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities.

The misinformation about Roe v. Wade was recently highlighted by a Harris poll describing Roe as “the U.S. Supreme Court decision making abortions up to three months of pregnancy legal.” Even with this substantial error, the poll showed Americans supporting Roe v. Wade by just 52 percent, with 47 percent opposed.
