PRO-LIFE UPDATE, May 2022
On May 2, 2022 a preliminary, draft opinion in the United States Supreme Court case of Dobbs v.Jackson dated “February 2022” was made public. This document was leaked to the news media by an unknown person inviolation of the Supreme Court’s confidentiality rules. It indicated that the court may be considering reversal of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision which allowed for legalized abortion nationwide. The leaked draft opinion is not an official ruling of the Court. There is no way to know for sure how the Court will rule in the Dobbs case. A final decision is expected by June. If the Court does overrule or significantly modify the Roe v. Wade case it is expected that many of the states surrounding Illinois will prohibit or restrict the availability of abortion. As was mentioned in our bulletin last month Illinois enacted a statute in 2019 legalizing abortion at any stage of pregnancy with no restrictions whatsoever. Sadly, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot announced on May 9, 2022 that the City would provide
taxpayer money, initially up to $500,000, to women from any bordering state which outlaws access to abortion to travel to Chicago. These subsidies would include payment for abortion, transportation, and lodging. Please pray for the unborn and an end to the use of public money for abortions. Our next monthly pro-life Mass and Rosary will be prayed on Saturday, June 4, at 8 am.
