Many of our elected officials do not know, or simply ignore the fact that leading abortion advocates deliberately spread information they knew was false in the years leading up to the Roe decision and to this very day.
Help us set the record straight.
Whether your Member of Congress and Senators support life, or do not, they ought to hear from you.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement has regenerated a disturbing amount of misinformation about Roe and the practice of abortion.
In the years leading up to Roe, Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson , co-founder in 1969 of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws - NARAL - later renamed National Abortion Rights Action League and other abortion advocates widely claimed "5,000 to 10,000 deaths a year" from illegal abortions. After Roe was decided, Nathanson admitted NARAL invented a "nice, round shocking figure. " He said, "I knew the figures were totally false."
Sadly, misinformation from abortion advocates infects our public debate on abortion to this day.
Women deserve better than to be misled by lies and abandoned to the violence of abortion.
As Mother Teresa said: "Roe vs. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts-a child-as a competitor, an intrusion and an inconvenience."
I urge you to take these views into account in your work concerning abortion. For further information please see www.usccb.org/roe
