As the Supreme Court appears likely to overturn Roe v. Wade, the battle to save pre-born babies will move from Washington, D.C. to the state level government. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America, highlights the ongoing work of her organization, and urges Christians to continue to stand strong in the fight against abortion. Kristan also invites believers to join their campaign for abortion-free cities, and illustrates how we can be mobilized in a “post Roe” America.
