The U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey is undoubtedly a historic win for the pro-life movement, but it has also left many people with questions about the overall impact at the state level and next steps for the pro-life cause. The Guiding Star Project, a national provider of healthcare services for women, sees this moment as pivotal to demonstrate a model of what true care for women could (and should) look like at a time when women are seeking help and resources more than ever before.
