American Family Association applauds Supreme Court Decision to overturn Roe v. Wade after nearly five decades — history in the making!

TUPELO, Miss. — American Family Association (AFA, celebrates the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade after the ruling of the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court case. The ruling is centered around a Mississippi law that banned abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy and has now put the power of abortion rights at the state level rather than the federal level.

“The American Family Association has stood for the sanctity of life since its founding in 1977 and to see Roe v. Wade overturned is profoundly moving,” said Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association. “Life begins at conception and must be protected. The week Dobbs was argued was an extremely encouraging one for those who view human life as sacred and worthy of protection from conception through natural expiration. We are praising God that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade and is sending abortion regulation back to each respective state. AFA will continue to fight to ensure each state abolishes abortion.”
