STATEMENT: Supreme Court Decision on Roe v. Wade

June 27, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) issued the following statement from Chair for the Center of American Values Pastor Paula White: 

“I join the America First Policy Institute today in celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The pro-life movement is ultimately motivated by love, not only love for the unborn child but love for the mother and 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 representatives.

Faith community leaders have always been front and center in offering 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 affirm 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 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 and is a gift from God. I am proud to fight for the value and worth of every single life. America First Policy Institute’s Center for American Values will continue to press ahead and gain ground as this moral and spiritual battle unfolds in the weeks and months to come.”
