ATLANTA–On May 3, Archbishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv., issued a statement to the people of the Archdiocese of Atlanta regarding reports about a draft of a Supreme Court ruling on the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

The archbishop’s statement follows:

“I know you are hearing a lot about what ruling the Supreme Court may or may not be releasing in the next few weeks. We don’t have to wait for a court to tell us what work needs to be done. We are here to build a culture of life. Have you thought about how you can support the pro-life ministry in your parish or community? They need you now more than ever. Your time, talent, treasure and prayer will be critical in the weeks and months to come. No matter how the court rules, there will be women who are confused and scared and need help. Let’s show them that we love them, we love their babies and we are here to support them. I urge you to pray for an increase in respect for life in all its stages and to reach out to your parish to find out how you can help.”
