Forcing births without support is not pro-life, forcing our beliefs on others and causing them suffering is not pro-life, and putting mothers' lives at stake is not pro-life.

Twenty-one states are on the verge of banning or severely restricting abortion in the wake of the Dobbs decision. Thirteen states had "trigger" laws – that would ban abortion in most cases if Roe v. Wade was overturned – 10 of which have gone into effect already.
Pastor and author Tony Evans is encouraging Christians to embrace a "womb to the tomb" agenda in light of the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, saying the body of Christ must "come alongside" women with "spiritual and tangible support."
