Statement by Bishop Michael McGovern of the Diocese of Belleville:

The Supreme Court Decision in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization

The decision by the Supreme Court [Friday June 24]  gives fresh hope to Americans who wish to work to create a compassionate culture where every human being is welcomed in life, cherished in the community, and protected by law. 

Because abortion law in Illinois continues to be among the most extreme in the nation, all Illinoisans must strive to assist women who are pregnant to welcome their children, even in the most difficult circumstances. By providing material, emotional and spiritual support, the Catholic Community in southern Illinois is committed to providing pregnant mothers with real choices, building bridges that will help women in crisis pregnancies reach a secure future for themselves and their children.
