What Christians Should Do If the Supreme Court Overturns Roe

A conversation with Cindi Boston

On May 2, 2022, Politico made headlines when it leaked the draft of a Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. That draft overturns Roe v. Wade, a 1973 decision, which together with Doe v. Bolton effectively legalized abortion throughout a woman’s pregnancy. And it returns regulation of abortion to state legislatures, rather than federal courts, which is where the matter lay prior to 1973.

A decision overturning Roe would be a momentous legal event, but would it change the way Christians minister to women who are considering abortion?

That’s the question I ask Cindi Boston in this episode of the Influence Podcast. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.

Cindi Boston is vice president of Heartbeat International. Founded in 1971 to provide alternatives to abortion, Heartbeat International is the first network of pro-life pregnancy resource centers in the U.S. and the largest such network in the world.
