The Legal History: Roe v. Wade

Roe v. Wade is the 1973 Supreme Court case which struck down existing state laws nationwide that had formerly made abortion illegal. Roe v. Wade effectively legalized abortion throughout a woman’s nine months of pregnancy. While the legal validity of Roe v. Wade has always been considered questionable by those in defense of the sacredness of human life, in recent years this case has come under considerable scrutiny and criticism from the general public and influential media outlets.

To learn more, visit the USCCB’s page on Roe v. Wade, which provides church documents, fact sheets, and more that examine the facts and myths about the Supreme Court decisions that legalized abortion nationwide.

Statistics about Abortion in the US

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, approximately 1 out of 3 women in the United States will have had an abortion by age 45. It’s fair to say that the majority of Americans have either had an abortion or know someone who has experienced one.   

When Does Human Life Begin?

Life is beautiful, and it begins in the womb!

Science for Unborn Human Life contains hundreds of easily accessible facts about the rapid development of the unborn child, focusing on the first eight weeks after conception.

The resources include citations from scientific journals and are affirmed by multiple OBGYNS. Truth Booth: A window to the womb offers DVDs and displays of 3D and 4D ultrasound images, providing an educational experience for all age groups on the development of a child in the womb.

The Charlotte Lozier Institute offers additional evidence from scholars like Dr. Maureen Condic, a professor of neurobiology and pediatrics.
