The following statement is from our three Catholic Bishops in Tennessee on the U.S. Supreme Court Ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson…
“Together, as the Catholic Bishops of Tennessee, we thank the United States Supreme Court for its careful consideration of the constitutional issues surrounding abortion and express our encouragement that it has ruled in favor of the right to life for the unborn.
Arguments before the court made it clear that our ever-expanding scientific knowledge has identified the fact that everything essential for a growing human life is present from the moment of conception. Only time and nourishment are necessary to bring that life forward, created in the likeness and image of God with the human dignity enshrined by the creator in each of us as His children.
We pray for all those facing pregnancies, both planned and unplanned, and pledge to redouble our efforts to support mothers, fathers and children at every stage of life.”
Bishop David P. Talley, Memphis
Bishop J. Mark Spalding, Nashville
