Analyzing the Dobbs Decision: Building a Culture of Life in New Jersey and Beyond Through Education, Unification, and Engagement
On Friday, June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe in the historic ruling on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization case. The legality of abortion is now a state issue.

Sadly, here in New Jersey, the Dobbs ruling will not limit access to abortions in the state. In fact, over the past few months, pro-abortion advocates have redoubled their efforts to expand access to abortion, virtually making it available for any reason or no reason at all.

In response to the United States Supreme Court ruling, the Catholic Bishops of New Jersey recognize that now is the time for Catholics and people of good will to work together to build a society where every woman has the support and resources she needs to bring her child into this world in love.

To assist individuals with responding to this call, the New Jersey Catholic Conference invites you to participate in our upcoming webinar "Analyzing the Dobbs Decision: Building a Culture of Life in New Jersey" on Thursday July 14, 2022 at 6:30 PM.

The webinar will provide:

• Legal analysis of the Dobbs decision.

• Insights on how establishing a culture of life is much more than simply opposing pro-abortion legislation.

• Tips and suggestions on concrete actionable steps Catholics can take in their communities to help mothers, children, and their families.
