January Respect Life Events

On Sunday, January 22, our nation will mark the 50th
anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the United States. While we give thanks for overturning this legislation in 2022, the abortion battle continues at the state level. In Georgia, the Heartbeat Bill is in effect but remains in litigation.  Parish events, Archdiocesan events, and USCCB resources include:
