While abortion activists are preparing for Roe v. Wade to be overturned, pro-life Americans should be ready, too.
Abortion activist groups are currently working to set up ways to provide abortions to women if Roe v. Wade is overturned, according to reports.
Recently, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case from Mississippi where abortions are banned after 15 weeks. Abortion activists are claiming this is a threat to the decision of Roe v. Wade.
The Washington Post reported, “In accepting the [Mississippi] case for next term, the court said it would examine whether ‘all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional.’ That has been a key component of the court’s jurisprudence, and the announcement sounded ominous to abortion rights advocates.”
Viability is a completely arbitrary standard which has changed over time.
In 1973 (when Roe was decided) babies were considered viable at 28 weeks.
Today, preemies are increasingly able to survive at 22 weeks or earlier – at least 1.5 months earlier than when Roe was decided.

According to Politico, abortion activists have used the pandemic to recruit more people to their cause, including “recruiting new members and online providers, adding new privacy features that could shield them from law enforcement and organizing.”
If a major change does happen to abortion laws in the U.S., then abortion activists are prepared to respond. So, pro-life Americans should be ready to respond, too. If the laws are changed, then pro-life activists can step up and help women find alternatives to abortion that preserve the life of their unborn.
We cannot give up the effort to end abortion.
