The Dobbs Supreme Court decision: empowering pregnant women and protecting preborn children

Published on

One year after the Dobbs decision, it is reasonable to inquire as to the current state of the movement.

The 2022 U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade represents the most significant pro-life development of my lifetime. The decision in Roe v. Wade has been consigned to the dustbin of history.

The demise of Roe was a long-awaited event for many people. Those who were forward-thinking advocates for life, most notably the staff and volunteers of National Right to Life, had prepared for the potential overturn of Roe.

It seems reasonable to posit that we are now in what might be termed Phase Two of the pro-life movement. The present period is one of potential and promise, although it is also characterised by challenges. However, those who advocate for the pro-life movement have previously encountered numerous challenges and will continue to do so as they strive to ensure that each pregnant woman is empowered and that each preborn child is protected.

It is my contention that we were created for such a time as this. At times, our advocacy efforts will be focused on achieving legislation that is life-saving and life-affirming. At other times, our efforts will be directed towards the dissemination of information on a range of subjects, including, but not limited to, abortion coercion, abortion trafficking, abortion pill reversal, human development, and pregnancy resources. It is possible to utilise technology, including 4D ultrasounds, phone apps and social media platforms, in order to revitalise our society.

It is therefore imperative that we maintain a state of constant recruitment. Generation Z requires our message, and we require their assistance in rebuilding a culture of life. Efforts such as the National Right to Life Academy, internships, essay and oratory contests can serve to ignite pro-life advocacy in the hearts of our young people.

Some media narratives have portrayed the pro-life movement as facing challenges in the wake of Dobbs. This is a case study in the triumph of hope over experience. It is evident that we are merely at the beginning of this process.

Phase 2 is still in its infancy, having been established barely a year ago. Let us now proceed to the next stage of the process.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
