Welcoming the Overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court

Today Mary’s Choice RVA stands with our beloved Bishop, The Most Reverend Barry C. Knestout, and with all who support and promote the dignity and sanctify of life from conception to natural death in welcoming the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court.  At the same time, we remain soberly aware of the desperate circumstances that lead many women to choose abortion and we stand ready, regardless of the legal status of abortion in any place, to serve pregnant women, mothers and children in need.  We will continue to provide a loving home, as well as help with childcare, education, job training, life skills and parenting education and help accessing mental health care and other social services to single women and their families for up to four years, with the continued generous support of the Catholic community and our many other friends.  We also pray for peace and mutual understanding in this time of transition in our country and for an increase in the support available, not only to us in our ministry but to all those groups and individuals who facilitate women who choose to give life in every place. We encourage any woman in need of assistance to reach out right away through our website: http://www.maryschoicerva.org
