Silent No More

Could we see the end of abortion in America?

In the USA, abortion takes the lives of over 600,000 babies a year. Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health could change that.


The Mississippi law at stake in this case bans abortion after 15 weeks. The question before the Supreme Court is whether all pre-viability bans on elective abortions are unconstitutional. This is the case that could could overturn Roe v. Wade—the Supreme Court decision which made abortion legal in all 50 states. Nine justices stand between life and death for millions of innocent children and their mothers.

What can we do?

The most important thing we can do to is to bend our knees in supplication to our Lord Jesus Christ, asking for the end to Roe, and to the brutal practice of abortion. We all need to pray without ceasing. And we need to tell our friends and church communities to join us.

Can you imagine what could happen if all who want an end to abortion joined together? If each believer committed to prayer and fasting? And if we organized within our local churches so that our communities would do the same?

What would happen if tens or hundreds of MILLIONS of Americans prayed for an end to abortion?

With God, ALL THINGS are possible.

From Right to Life Michiana: Whole Women's Health Alliance (WWHA), abortionist Dr. Jeffrey Glazer, and All-Options,Inc. are suing the State of Indiana to remove no fewer than 25 health and safety laws and regulations such as the in-person examination requirement, the telemedicine ban, and the in-person counseling requirement. They are fighting to undo the protections we have put into place to protect the preborn over the last 47 years. Please join Right to Life Michiana in demanding they drop the lawsuit.  Go to and click on the red icon to send them an email already composed for you. If you prefer to send them a letter through the mail, simply copy the letter and mail it to 3511 Lincolnway W, South Bend, IN  46628. Come out and pray during the 40 Days for Life campaign, especially on Fridays and Saturdays when the clinic is open.


OUR MISSION is to defend life from the moment of conception to natural death.

We prayerfully and actively strive toward accomplishing our mission by various activities and fundraisers and through educational pamphlets. We offer compassion for the post-abortive and can refer for healing through Project Rachel, a diocesan companion program and "A Haven for Healing".
