In the year after the momentous decision of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the pro-life movement has accomplished tremendous victories, as well as tackled new challenges. It has been an eventful year as the battle for Life continues in the state legislatures, at the ballot, and in the courts.

8. Battles over Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs): Win & Challenge.

7. Proposed Administrative Rules Touching on Life Issues: Challenge.

5. Defeat of Physician-Assisted Su***de Bills: Win.

4. Litigation over State Constitutions: Win & Challenge.

3. Strong Protections for Life Enacted: Win.

2. Issue 1 In Ohio: Challenge.

“This is going to ruin your life.” “You have to drop out of college.”

“This is a mistake.” “Abort the baby.”

These words, uttered by people whom I trusted and loved most in this world, struck me like a knife.

When I learned I was pregnant, I was 21 years old and still in school. I was engaged to be married, and while those two pink lines came as a complete shock, I wanted to be a mother.

My feelings were overlooked by those close to me. Rather than offering support, my family and friends responded with criticism and doubt. It was Thanksgiving Day, and my fiance at the time told me to abort the baby and that we could “try again after we got married.” When I insisted on keeping my child, he abandoned me.

Scared, alone, and with no support, I stumbled upon the Pregnancy Resource Center of Rolla, Missouri. I sought out a free ultrasound, which was one of the many services it provided. While there, I met Jane Dalton, who served as the center’s client services director. I told her my situation, and in turn, she asked me what I wanted.

I wanted to be a mother — and a good one at that. But I also wanted to finish school and become financially self-sufficient. Jane told me that I could do all of those things and that the PRC would be there to help.

I soon moved into the maternity home connected to PRC and was immediately surrounded by love and support from complete strangers rather than the fear of family and friends that my life would hold less value as a mother. I had weekly meetings with certified professional life coaches who walked me through every step of my pregnancy, focusing on my emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. I gave birth to my beautiful son Noah and wondered in awe at the remarkable life I had created.

In the more than 50 years since Americans United for Life was founded, we've seen incredible pro-life achievements such as the Congressional Hyde Amendment, life-protecting victories in states from coast to coast, and, of course, the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

At the same time, we've lived through significant disappointments, like the failure in the 1980s to enact a federal constitutional amendment to protect life and the tragic outcome of the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision. What we've seen as advocates for life over so many years is that, despite the bitterness of occasional political setbacks, American history remains the story of a people's pilgrim journey on the path toward constitutional justice.

Onward.

Did you know? Current Ohio law permits elective abortions up to 20 weeks’ gestation. In other words, if voters reject Issue 1, Ohio residents can still obtain contraception, fertility and miscarriage treatment, continue their pregnancies, and have an abortion.

If Ohioans pass Issue 1, the amendment’s fallout will be devastating, especially for the welfare of Ohio women and their preborn children.

Ohio abortion lobby's latest attempt is to use deceptively worded ballot language to enshrine the intentional killing of humans into law.

"In the most comprehensive text of its time, Pushing Roe v. Wade Over the Brink chronicles the tumultuous history of abortion in America, contextualizing the conception of pro-life giant Americans United for Life, from state legalization of abortion preceding Roe to the post-Roe present day." - The Federalist

In 'Pushing Roe v. Wade Over the Brink,' Clarke D. Forsythe and Alexandra DeSanctis tell the story of pro-lifers' successful struggle.

When Congress funds abortion, it funds the male partner, the parents, and the trafficker, because abortion clinics never ask and don’t want to know.
