The Justice Foundation has presented the Supreme Court with over 500,000 signatures asking the Court to overturn the anti-life Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion-on-demand in 1973.
Life News reports:
Allan Parker, President of The Justice Foundation, a pro-life nonprofit leading the charge, told LifeNews.com that the “Moral Outcry” petition “stands on the premise that U.S. citizens do not accept abortion as the law of the land.”
“Pro-life leaders across the nation have added their voices to the growing movement calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade,” he said. “We are honored that 500,000 people have joined us in calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe.”
“Especially now that every state has passed safe-haven laws, the “unwanted child” argument of the pro-abortion lobby is no longer valid,” he added. “Advocates of ‘The Moral Outcry’ say the petition represents many who wish to see the innocent lives of children in the womb protected under the Constitution.”
“With millions struggling with infertility and waiting to adopt, every child in America is wanted. In this age of advanced medicine and widespread adoption alternatives, abortion is obsolete. It is time for the Supreme Court to protect both women and children.”
“Every child, born or pre-born, has the inalienable right to life given by God,” said Students For Life of America Vice-President Tina Whittington. “Students for Life of America stands with the hundreds of thousands of signers who call on the Supreme Court to do the right thing and protect the lives of the pre-born. The Pro-Life Generation will not rest until abortion is abolished and made unthinkable.”
