“This is a long-overdue opportunity for the Supreme Court to restore the rights of states to reflect the will of their voters in commonsensical and broadly supported abortion laws. Americans overwhelmingly agree in their opposition to abortion during the second and third trimesters. Ending the division over abortion in America begins by giving the people a say in the issue through their elected representatives; and voters want more protections for innocent human life.” Ashley McGuire is a Senior Fellow with The Catholic Association. 

“Ultrasound images of human beings kicking, sucking their thumbs, and even smiling have moved the hearts of Americans to recognize the humanity of babies in the womb, so much so that we spend billions of dollars a year giving premature babies a chance to live. Even Americans who identify as “pro-choice” oppose unlimited abortion access, with a majority who say that abortion should be limited to – at most – the first trimester. It is time to allow popular and compassionate laws like the one the Supreme Court has just decided to consider.” Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie is a Policy Advisor for The Catholic Association.
