WASHINGTON, D.C.—The American Center for Law and Justice has called for urgent prayer and action to stop the U.S. Senate codifying radical abortion up to the time of birth and removing the conscience clause for healthcare workers (requiring participation in abortions) and women’s informed consent clause (requiring sufficient information to make free decisions about abortions).
“We only have about 24 hours to defeat the radical Left’s attempt to make Roe v. Wade permanent,” said Jordan Sekulow, Executive Director of the America Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). “Senator (Chuck) Schumer is using the stolen, leaked draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade to force a vote (Wednesday) on an unconstitutional bill that would expand abortion and make Roe permanent, even if the Supreme Court officially strikes down Roe.
“The pro-abortion Left worships at the altar of abortion. They’re engaged in an intimidation campaign to sway Justices to change their minds (an all-out attack on the integrity of the Supreme Court). President Joe Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will stop at nothing to codify Roe.”
Abortion protesters continue to target the private homes of the six Republican—appointed justices this past week despite Federal U.S. code 1507, which states that any individual who “pickets or parades” with the “intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer” near a U.S. court or “near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer” will be fined, or “imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”
Just over 75% of likely voters oppose publishing the home addresses of the conservative Supreme Court justices and are against calling for protests at the justices’ homes by pro-abortion activists, according to a new poll by the Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group.
The poll released Tuesday shows:
- 8% are against publishing the addresses and protesting at the conservative justices’ homes, compared to 15.9% who are in favor of it. Just over 8% are unsure.
- 5% of Republicans oppose it, while 7.9% favor it. Over 5% are unsure.
- 6% of Democrats are against it, compared to 21.4% who favor it. Another 12% are uncertain.
- 1% of independents are opposed to it, while 18.5% favor it. Just 6.5% were unsure.
“These numbers make it clear that the Biden Administration’s refusal — both to forcefully condemn these illegal demonstrations and to enforce laws protecting Justices of the United States Supreme Court — is wildly unpopular with voters,” said Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote on codifying abortion—if they can remove the filibuster requirement of 60 Senate votes to a simple majority. The ACLJ (in today’s broadcast), claims the U.S. Senate is only one vote short of removing the filibuster to stop debate. If successful, the U.S. Senate would only need 50 votes to codify Roe v. Wade since any tie vote would result in a vote from Vice President Kamala Harris—a strong proponent of abortion. President Joe Biden has already indicated he would sign the Women’s Health Protection Act which has already passed the U.S. House.
Four U.S. Senators could make the difference in either the filibuster vote or the abortion vote: Senators Joe Manchin (D-WVA); Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ); Susan Collins (R-ME); and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). Democrat Senators Manchin and Sinema are against removing the Senate filibuster while Republican Senators Collins and Murkowski support abortion. These four Senators can be contacted by calling the U.S. Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121.

Senator Chuck Schumer has scheduled the Wednesday vote on “abortion on demand” that goes beyond the 1973 Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade and which the U.S. Supreme Court has not issued a formal decision or ruling on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization about the constitutionality of a 2018 Mississippi state law the bans most abortion operations after the first 15 weeks of pregnancy. Wednesday’s vote is “not an abstract exercise,” said Senator Schumer. “It is a real as it gets. This is a vote to protect women’s right to choose.”
“Our initial legal analysis of the draft opinion concludes that any attempt by Congress to pass a law that would codify or expand Roe v. Wade would be unconstitutional,” said Sekulow. “We are in a battle now to protect the integrity of the Supreme Court and this opinion that overturns Roe to defend the lives of countless unborn babies.
“We’re mobilizing in the biggest fight of our lifetime, battling the seemingly unlimited resources of the radical Left. We just delivered our legal analysis of tis unconstitutional bill to every Senator before this monumental vote, and we’re ready to go to the Supreme court if necessary. The moment is now. We’ve just launched a $250,000 Matching Moment. Every gift will be doubled. Our deadline is tomorrow.”Those wishing to donate to the American Center for Law and Justice battle against the one billion dollar abortion giant—Planned Parenthood—can do so by going to: https://aclj.org/donate.
