New study indicates that pro-life culture may be on the rise

.- An official with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops says there is new evidence, indicating that “the culture is turning away from abortion.”

Cathy Cleaver Ruse, Esq., director of planning and information for the USCCB’s Pro-Life Secretariat, pointed to a recent study by the Center for Gender Equality, which supports unlimited abortions, about “top priority” issues for the women’s movement. The survey results indicate that “keeping abortion legal” came in at last.

Ruse called the Roe vs. Wade decision a “social experiment on the lives of women and children,” from which people have begun to turn away.

“More and more people believe that all children deserve a chance to be born, and that women deserve better than abortion,” she said.

The pro-life movement has a strong grassroots, “especially among young people who have grown up under Roe and have seen the damage it has done," she said, adding that the movement is preparing for the possibility of changes to the Supreme Court.

Ruse again urged Senators not to impose a “pro-abortion litmus test” on judicial nominees to the Supreme Court.

"Requiring allegiance to Roe v. Wade as a condition for serving as a federal judge is … wrong,” said Ruse. “It not only offends Catholics, but also the majority of Americans who believe an unlimited right to abortion is wrong."
