Read MCFL's statement on Monday's leaked SCOTUS Dobbs decision

BREAKING: Leaked Document Reveals SCOTUS Poised to Overturn Roe v. Wade 

Late yesterday, Politico obtained leaked documents from an unknown source which show Justice Samuel Alito's initial draft in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

The Court is scheduled to share its official ruling on Dobbs before the end of June, and we anticipate that a majority of the justices will rule in its favor. It is also suspected by both sides of the aisle that the Court will rightfully take the appropriate ruling to overturn Roe.

If the Court's opinion holds, Massachusetts Citizens for Life (MCFL) will be very pleased that justices recognized that our Constitution does not imply or permit abortion on demand.

Though this ruling would overturn Roe, it would not outlaw abortion. Pro-life supporters and the press need to understand that such a ruling in Dobbs would return the abortion issue to elected representatives in each state legislature. Unfortunately, abortions will continue to be available across the country in many places, including here in Massachusetts. There will be much work left to do to protect our most vulnerable citizens and support women and men faced with unplanned pregnancies.

    It’s morning again in America. - Hal Riney, producer, Reagan-Bush ‘84

    Forty-nine years after one of America’s darkest days, who besides the Great Communicator offers a proper comparison to today’s brighter tone—that fiery haze of optimism rising within the pro-life movement? Just as President Reagan’s campaign ad prompted viewers to recognize possibility born from accomplishments, it’s time to acknowledge a similar potential, the result of some impressively coordinated efforts throughout the past five decades, yours among them.
