Washington, D.C. – Today the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will review Mississippi’s pro-life law limiting abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, passed by overwhelming majorities in the state legislature and signed by then-Governor Phil Bryant.
A growing body of scientific literature indicates unborn children can feel pain at least by halfway through pregnancy, if not earlier.
In response to the news, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) issued the following statement:
“This is a landmark opportunity for the Supreme Court to recognize the right of states to protect unborn children from the horrors of painful late-term abortions,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Across the nation, state lawmakers acting on the will of the people have introduced 536 pro-life bills aimed at humanizing our laws and challenging the radical status quo imposed by Roe. It is time for the Supreme Court to catch up to scientific reality and the resulting consensus of the American people as expressed in elections and policy.”
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
