Pro-life activists demonstrated their patriotism in front of the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday.
While rallying outside the Supreme Court, a large gathering of people sang the national anthem. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that centers on a Mississippi law that prohibits most abortions after 15 weeks of a woman’s pregnancy.
Many of the singing activists carried signs with messages such as “life is worth it” and “call me an extremist, but I think dismemberment is wrong.”

This is the biggest case in the right to life in our generation. 🙏🏽

Many feel the case has the potential to overturn Roe v. Wade, which would have major ramifications for abortion access across the country. The Mississippi Supreme Court will rule whether or not the 2018 statute prohibiting the procedure is lawful. Since the 2018 decision, many lower courts have ruled to prevent the ban, which allows abortion to be accessible up to about 24 weeks gestation.

Dobbs makes an exception in cases when the fetus has a disease that is “incompatible with life” or where the pregnancy poses a hazard to the mother’s health.
