A pro-life group has presented the nation’s highest court with over half a million signatures from Americans asking it to overturn the infamous case that has resulted in 63 million babies dying in abortions.
With over 500,000 signatures collected on a petition calling for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, American Citizens will hold a rally outside the Supreme Court to call on the Supreme Court of the United States to use the Dobbs case from the state of Mississippi to reverse the decision.
Allan Parker, President of The Justice Foundation, a pro-life nonprofit leading the charge, told LifeNews.com that the “Moral Outcry” petition “stands on the premise that U.S. citizens do not accept abortion as the law of the land.”
“Pro-life leaders across the nation have added their voices to the growing movement calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade,” he said. “We are honored that 500,000 people have joined us in calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe.”
“Especially now that every state has passed safe-haven laws, the “unwanted child” argument of the pro-abortion lobby is no longer valid,” he added. “Advocates of ‘The Moral Outcry’ say the petition represents many who wish to see the innocent lives of children in the womb protected under the Constitution.”

“With millions struggling with infertility and waiting to adopt, every child in America is wanted. In this age of advanced medicine and widespread adoption alternatives, abortion is obsolete. It is time for the Supreme Court to protect both women and children.”
“Every child, born or pre-born, has the inalienable right to life given by God,” added Students For Life of America Vice-President Tina Whittington. “Students for Life of America stands with the hundreds of thousands of signers who call on the Supreme Court to do the right thing and protect the lives of the pre-born. The Pro-Life Generation will not rest until abortion is abolished and made unthinkable.”
Thomas Glessner, President of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, said te Supreme Court must reverse itself because science proves unborn children are human beings.
“In Roe v Wade the Supreme Court said, ‘We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. However, that question is no longer difficult, science proves beyond a reasonable doubt that human life begins in the womb and abortion kills the life of a human infant,” he explained. “The work of pro-life pregnancy resource centers, utilizing ultrasounds showing a mother considering abortion a human baby is very impactful, because it shows to this mother the truth of a human life within her. Since science now provides indisputable evidence of the humanity of the unborn the Supreme Court must now rethink and reverse its ruling in Roe v Wade. NIFLA is also an Amicus party on the Brief.”
Walker Wildmon, Vice President of Operations, American Family Association, also supports the petition and signatures.
“After 46 years and millions of lives lost, the pro-life movement is closer now than ever before to seeing abortion outlawed in states across the country,” he said. “American Family Association is proud to partner with The Moral Outcry in this effort. This partnership is playing a key role in articulating the need for the Supreme Court to correct itself and overturn the travesty that is Roe v. Wade.”
Melinda Thybault, the creator of The Moral Outcry Petition said, “I’m honored to be presenting over half a million signatures that represent the raised voices of the American people, for those whose voices cannot be heard – our children in the womb. We are the voice for the voiceless.”
