NRTL Marks 1st Anniversary of Overturned Roe

One year ago, on June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down the Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

“With the Dobbs decision, the Court correctly decided that a right to abortion is not in the Constitution,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life (NRTL). “Dobbs gives the people, through their elected representatives, a voice in protecting the right to life.”

Shockingly, there are those in our society and leaders in our government who have doubled down on promoting and protecting unlimited abortions. On Friday, June 23 — while attendees at the NRTL Convention were listening to Benjamin Watson, former NFL tight end, pro-life speaker and author — President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were being lauded and endorsed for re-election by several major pro-abortion groups for being “champions” of unlimited abortion.

“One year later, instead of working to protect innocent human lives and working to create safety nets for women in need, pro-abortion groups and their sympathizers, including the Biden-Harris administration, have worked to protect unlimited abortions and the abortionists who do them,” continued Tobias.

In a statement, the Biden-Harris administration flaunted its commitment to unlimited abortion by outlining actions it has taken or will be taking. These actions include protecting abortionists from lawsuits, defending chemical abortions in the courts, expanding abortion coverage in health care plans under the Affordable Care Act and pushing for taxpayer funding of abortions. In addition, the Biden-Harris administration has:

• Strongly supported the radical Women’s Health Protection Act, which would essentially remove all legal protections for unborn children on the federal and state level and prevent future protections for unborn children;

• Supported eliminating the Hyde Amendment, which prevents the use of federal funds to pay for abortions except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother;

• Taken actions to advance access to abortion, including an effort to illegally fund elective abortions at Veterans Affairs medical centers and pay for travel with taxpayer dollars through the Department of Defense; and

• Pursued illegal action in promoting the mailing of chemical abortion drugs.

“The Biden administration has spared no effort in promoting unlimited abortion with no thought of the innocent unborn child or the safety of her mother,” said Tobias.
