After the decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade last week, a historic milestone in the pro-life movement, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) joined her colleagues, led by Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), in recognizing and celebrating the pro-life movement and volunteers in their role to support mothers and children over the last 50 years. This week, the senators introduced a resolution congratulating the pro-life movement on its historic victory in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Full text of the resolution is here.

“For five decades, pro-life organizations, volunteers and advocates have worked tirelessly to support mothers, children, and the sanctity of unborn life,” said Senator Ernst. “Last week’s decision by the Supreme Court is a major victory for the pro-life movement, one that reflects the science, saves lives, and brings policymaking power back to the American people and their elected officials. Without the countless organizations, leaders and volunteers who have advocated for the unborn, we may not be where we are today, and this resolution recognizes that.”
