The Fight to Defend Life in the States Continues

Abortion referenda challenges for this November have been presented in the following states.  The process for amending the constitution varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

As of May 2024, two of the states, New York and Maine, have failed to complete the necessary steps in order to have an amendment proposal placed on the 2024 ballot.  Abortion is already legal in both states, so, as things now stand, nothing will change for them this year.

Click on your state to see a summary of the proposed amendments and how to be involved.  Everyone is invited to pray for the guidance of all those involved in the decision-making processes to secure protection for life in law.
