If the Supreme Court sends the question of legal abortion back to the states, pro-life groups must be prepared to respond, pro-life leaders told CNA on Monday.
Pro-abortion activists are preparing for a potential reversal of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling that struck down a state abortion ban and legalized abortion nationwide.
Politico reported Tuesday that some pro-abortion groups are already organizing to provide surgical or chemical abortions in the event Roe is overturned and future state abortion bans are enacted; the groups are “prepared to defy any laws banning abortion,” Politico reported.
Some of the steps outlined in the report include efforts to arrange travel for women seeking surgical abortions, or the distribution of abortion pills by mail.
