It's normal to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one's heart, a hole so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness. Visit if you or someone you know has been affected by an abortion.

Info on Pro-Life from the USCCB:

Why End Roe?

On January 22, 1973, in its twin decisions, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the U.S. Supreme Court created a constitutional right to abortion throughout the nine months of pregnancy. These decisions have been widely criticized on historical, scientific, and legal grounds. Scholar John Hart Ely said of Roe: "It is bad because it is bad constitutional law, or rather because it is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be." ("The Wages of Crying Wolf," Yale Law Journal 1973)

The purpose of is to promote a fuller understanding of what the Court did in Roe and Doe and why these fundamentally erroneous decisions must be corrected.
