Today our guest is Cathie Humbarger, a veteran pro-life leader in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She is the founder of Reprotection, a pro-life organization that helps state-level law enforcement properly enforce abortion regulations which can go unmonitored or ignored by abortion-friendly politicians and state agencies. Learn more at www.Reprotection.org. In the Hoosier state, Cathie is a unique player in the pro-life cause because she actively serves in both the ministry side of serving moms, dads, and babies, and she also crosses swords with politicians. Usually, activists gravitate toward either the hard work of mercy, patience, and service to women facing abortion decisions, or the hard work of political and legal battles.
But Cathie Humbarger does both and therefore offers a unique perspective on what we may face as a pro-life movement in the wake of the fall of Roe versus Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that created a right to legal abortion on demand. The ruling was overturned last week, and now returns the question of legality to the states. An estimated 26 states will likely have pro-life laws on the books that will protect all or most babies from conception until natural death, while the balance of the 24 states will protect legal abortion to varying degrees.
