SALT LAKE CITY--June 24, 2022--The Utah Eagle Forum today announced a triumphant day for unborn babies and their mothers. An affirming day for the Constitution and a victory for the United States of America, Roe v. Wade, which required that abortion on demand be legal in all 50 states, has been overturned by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). Each state can now decide what laws will govern abortion in their state.
With the SCOTUS ruling, Utah Eagle Forum is appreciative that Utah has a well vetted pro-life law that is ready to go into effect. The Forum is especially grateful to Senator Dan McCay, the sponsor of this law that prohibits an abortion at any stage of a pregnancy, except under certain circumstances. The House Sponsor of the Utah law is Karianne Lisonbee.
Gayle Ruzicka, President of the Utah Chapter of the Eagle Forum stated, “I remember the shock and the pain, almost 50 years ago, when seven Supreme Court Justices voted in support of Roe v. Wade, making abortion on demand legal in all 50 states. Since that time, 63 million babies have lost their lives because of abortion. I am grateful that I have lived long enough to see the end of Roe.”
The Forum believes Roe v. Wade was always an unconstitutional ruling by the Supreme Court. The right to abortion does not exist in the Constitution. The Forum affirms that we now have a Supreme Court majority that rules according to correct constitutional and moral principles.
Ruzika further states, “Our celebration includes creating support systems for mothers by connecting them with organizations and resources that can provide care and training for both the mother and her baby. These resources can provide a good start and opportunities for a successful future.”
On Saturday July 2nd at 2pm, the Forum will join other Utah pro-life groups in a “Celebration of Life” event to commemorate the end of Roe v. Wade and a new era of life for Utah’s unborn babies. This celebration will take place at the Utah State Capitol.
