The following is a statement from Pastor Paula White Cain on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade 6/24/22
“Today I join millions of Americans who celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The pro-life movement is ultimately a movement motivated by love; not only love for the unborn child but love for the mother and for the father, as well. Millions of advocates for the health and lives of women and their unborn babies have prayed for this moment and celebrate this national victory for the sanctity of life after 50 years of judiciary-sanctioned abortion. With this historic decision, all Americans will once again be able to make their voices heard and choose to protect life through their elected State representatives.
Faith community leaders have always been front and center to offer counseling, support services, and prayer for vulnerable mothers and children across the country. The overturning of Roe will increase that support and the roles of the 2,700 Pregnancy Resource Centers in America. Pro-life supporters will continue to open their hearts, homes, and finances to help those facing hardships, and keep affirming the value inherent to every life.
Like millions of Americans, I subscribe to the Scriptures which clearly state that God created each and every one of us in His own image, giving each of us dignity as human beings. Jeremiah 1:5 reminds us, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.’ Human life— born and unborn—is precious at every stage in the cycle of life and is a gift from God. I am proud to fight for the value and worth of every single life as we continue to press ahead and gain ground as this moral and spiritual battle unfolds.”
