The greatest danger occurs at the moment of victory. That maxim, attributed to Napoleon, is particularly applicable to the American pro-life movement. Yes, Roe v.

And if abortion is codified through federal legislation, it could be every bit as legal as Roe was not. 

It’s important to recognize that abortion activists remain a major force in the field. In fact, the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision has served as a rallying point for them.

Just 24 hours after Roe’s reversal, donations to Planned Parenthood increased 40-fold over their typical daily take, with more than half of contributions coming from first-time donors. And more than 20 woke corporations are offering to cover expenses for employees traveling to get out-of-state abortions.
