ERLC to host online event to discuss Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and the future of prolife movement


WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 3, 2021—The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, will host a special online event, Monday, Dec. 6 at 10:00 a.m. EST, to discuss yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court’s oral arguments on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case and how it could overturn the Roe v. Wade decision and affect the future of the prolife movement. 

Pro-life leaders who are scheduled to participate in the online event include:

  • Herbie Newell, president & executive director, Lifeline Children’s Services
  • Denise Harle, senior counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom
  • Elizabeth Graham, vice president of life initiatives, ERLC
  • Chelsea Sobolik, director of public policy, ERLC

The ERLC and other pro-life organizations filed an amicus brief in the Dobbs case earlier this year requesting the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

Throughout the event, panelists will discuss questions such as: 

  • How can churches prepare for a post-Roe world?
  • How could the justices rule on this case?
  • What do we know from oral arguments?
  • When can we expect a ruling?
  • How could this case change the future of the prolife movement? 

“The stakes are high, and we will continue to advocate for the protection of all human lives until abortion becomes illegal, unthinkable and unnecessary across the world,” said ERLC’s Elizabeth Graham.

Members of the press are invited to attend and can register for free at this link

Immediately following the event, you’re invited to join event speakers for a 10-minute “on-the-record” Q&A to ask follow up questions from the panel discussion pertaining to the Dobbs case. If you would like to join, please RSVP to Elizabeth Bristow at [email protected] to receive further information for this virtual press room
