The year 2017 marks the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the U.S. Supreme Court decisions that made abortion legal through all nine months of pregnancy. Since these decisions were issued January 22, 1973, more than 58 million unborn children have died. Please send a pro-life message to your Representative and two Senators in Congress, urging them to work to end Roe and Doe as the law of the land.

For more information about Roe and Doe and related U. S. Supreme Court decisions on abortion, please see the website EndRoe.org. There you can find the stories of Norma McCorvey and Sandra Cano, on whose behalf the cases were brought, and their calls to overturn the decisions. Other resources include the texts of the Court’s decisions; summaries of those decisions; a review of dissents; questions and answers; an introductory overview essay; selected readings; and an annotated bibliography.

ACTION: Contact your Representative and Senators by sending an e-mail or a tweet through the Human Life Action Center here.

SUGGESTED MESSAGE:

“The year 2017 marks the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the U.S. Supreme Court decisions that made the destruction of pre-born human life legal through all nine months of pregnancy. Since these decisions were issued, more than 58 million unborn children have died. Please work to end the regime of Roe and Doe.  I and millions of Americans oppose these deadly decisions which have been severely criticized by many legal scholars as lacking a basis in the Constitution.”
