Roe v Wade 40

Dear Pro-life Friends,

On January 22, 1973, the two most destructive and disastrous decisions of the United States Supreme Court were imposed on our nation: Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton. These decisions legalized abortion throughout pregnancy.

We are now approaching the 40th anniversary of these decisions, and the pro-life movement is preparing to observe this occasion with appropriate events of prayer and action.

On this website we will post pertinent events, activities, articles, and other items related to the observance of the 40th anniversary in January, and throughout the year 2014.

On this page, you will see links to various activities that pro-life organizations can take part in to mark this important year.

If you would like to share what you or your group are doing in observance of this anniversary, or have ideas about what the pro-life movement should do, or want to be kept informed of special initiatives, please fill out the form below.

God bless you!

Fr. Frank Pavone
National Director, Priests for Life
Coordinator, Pro-life Leadership Coalition
