Abortion Health Emergency Declaration
On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court made the historic decision in the Dobbs vs Jackson Women's Health Organization case to overturn Roe vs Wade, declaring that, "procuring an abortion is not a fundamental constitutional right, ... 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." (www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf/19-1392_6j37.pdf)
It should come as no surprise that with this victory, there comes a tremendous backlash from the left, the Democrats, and pro-abortion activists. As more and more states have been implementing stronger abortion restrictions, those opposed to life are scrambling to find "solutions" to increase access to abortions. One such solution is a letter written by 83 Congressional Democrats urging President Biden and Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Beccara, to declare access to abortion a public health emergency under the Stafford Act. We cannot allow this to happen.
We have been fighting for life for 50 years and with this victory it is not time to become complacent or let our guard down. Those that are opposing us are not going to rest, this step to try to have access to abortion through public health emergency is proof that the fight is really just beginning.
I urge you to sign the petition to President Biden, Xavier Beccara, and the House Leadership, letting your voice be heard that this attempt at circumventing the Supreme Court's ruling is unacceptable and that you stand on the side of life.
