WASHINGTON, November 30, 2021 — On the eve of the United States Supreme Court hearing of Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health, Lifeline Children’s Services President Herbie Newell arrived in the nation’s capital to take part in several pro-life events and to urge the nation’s highest court to overturn Roe v Wade. Dobbs v Jackson challenges Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. In her defense of the law, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch wrote, “The national fever on abortion can break only when this Court returns abortion policy to the states – where agreement is more common, compromise is more possible, and disagreement can be resolved at the ballot box.”
“It is my hope and prayer that the United States Supreme Court will finally recognize that there is no constitutional right to abortion,” said Newell. “For almost 50 years, states have been stymied in their ability to protect vulnerable unborn children. It’s time for the tyranny of Roe to end. Organizations like Lifeline Children’s Services are ready to help women in crisis to be empowered to choose life for their precious children.”
Newell will be present, along with numerous pro-life leaders and groups, at the Supreme Court the morning of December 1 to pray and advocate for the end of abortion. He will also host several Facebook Lives outside the court.
“This is a historic moment. The Supreme Court’s decision means life or death for millions of babies,” said Newell. “Justices, I urge you to do what is right. Respect the Constitution and don’t let Roe v Wade turn 50.”
