Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement: "While we are grateful that the tyranny of Roe has ended, we are mindful of the solemnity of this moment: What the Court has done is an act of repentance out of which we bring forth the fruit of repentance, rebuilding a culture of life in America," he wrote.

"We mourn that so many lives had to be lost to get us to this point. We will redouble our support for mothers and fathers in need especially by supporting the great work of pregnancy resource centers." 

"We must elect pro-life representatives to every level of government from the school board to the White House," Perkins added.

"And we must pray for the day when people won't be voting on whether a person has the right to life, or that an unborn child's life is dependent upon state lines. Today, though, we must also celebrate and give thanks to God that countless unborn children's lives will be saved."

Mary Szoch, FRC's director of the Center for Human Dignity, added: "With this ruling, the abortion business that has been built through the exploitation of women and the killing of their children is beginning to crumble. Still, our work is far from finished." 

"In some states, the evil of abortion that ends the life of a unique child, breaks the heart of a mother and father, and shatters the conscience of a nation continues. We must double our efforts to support mothers and fathers in need," she continued.

"We must support pregnancy resource centers with financial, material, and spiritual resources. We must have the difficult conversations with our neighbors about the dignity of the human person beginning in the womb."

"And we must pray — pray without ceasing — for the day when all life is respected and treated as the gift from God that it is," Szoch concluded.
