Bishop McKnight encouraged by overturn of Roe v Wade

Bishop W. Shawn McKnight issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v Jackson:

I welcome the decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade, ending 50 years of our federal government defending the killing of the unborn. As I wrote recently, whenever we disregard the dignity of any class of human beings, we impoverish our own dignity and the bonds that hold our nation together suffer.

Let us redouble our efforts in the important work of accompanying women with unexpected pregnancies and eliminating the societal causes for abortion.
