Statement on Roe v. Wade from FLACCB
January 6, 2022 • Diocese of St. Augustine

On this tragic 49th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion and stripped the unborn of their fundamental right to life, we mourn the heartbreaking loss of over 62 million victims. The Catholic Church stands emphatically and unreservedly for the rights of the unborn. We look forward with the hope that God will soon bring our nation to a profound awareness of the dignity of human life and a recognition that all lives deserve protection under the law.
