    Surge Summary: The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is, indeed, a titanic victory for decency – but it also ushers pro-life forces toward a new stage in the struggle to protect the unborn. The battle will now be state-by-state – and it must be engaged by those who have labored to protect children in the womb thus far.

    by The Ruth Institute

    Commenting on the Supreme Court decision reversing Roe v. Wade, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. said, “We’ve won an important victory, but the war is far from over.”

    “While pro-abortion forces can no longer rely on Roe to nullify state laws, 12 states and the District of Columbia protect abortion – some, like California and New York, up to the moment of birth. Now, there will be a huge push to increase that number. Pro-life forces must be prepared to fight at the state level and in the court of public opinion.”

    Morse remarked: “It’s been 49 years since Roe v. Wade. But finally we have a majority of Supreme Court justices who understand that there is no right to abortion anywhere in the US Constitution.”

    “Understandably, forces of the Sexual Revolution are furious and are resorting to violence to protect their misinterpretation of the Constitution,” Morse declared. “You might say they are using violence in the streets to protect violence in the womb. They promise a Summer of Rage. We will counter that with a summer of education and activism,” Morse promised.

    She continued: “The false promise of the Sexual Revolution is that everyone is allowed to have as much sex as they want, and nothing bad will ever happen. No one will ever be confronted with unwanted parental responsibilities. The baby in the womb is literally reduced to a non-person.”

    “True believers are committed to unlimited abortion because abortion is the back-up plan in case contraceptives fail. That is why they are furious over any limitation on abortion.”

    The place to start planning for the war after Roe is at the Ruth Institute’s 5th Annual Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, which opened today in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

    The Summit will feature a keynote speech by Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America, as well as remarks by Fr. Shenan Boquet, President of Human Life International, and Eric Scheidler, Executive Director of the Pro-life Action League.

    There will also be sessions on the Gender Ideology, Contraceptive Ideology, Divorce Ideology, and declining fertility (Demographic Winter). Morse will speak on “Defend Your Values Like a Pro: A 15-Minute Defense of Traditional Christian Sexual Ethics.” The complete Summit schedule can be found here.
