La filtración del borrador del dictamen de la Corte Suprema en el caso Dobbs provocó que el gobernador y los líderes legislativos de California anunciaran su intención de crear una enmienda constitucional en California para proteger el derecho al aborto. Esto destruirá vidas, familias y limitará significativamente la capacidad de la Iglesia Católica en California para proteger a los no nacidos. Este es el momento para que la Iglesia y sus 12 millones de católicos intervengan en sus comunidades, se opongan activa y públicamente a esta enmienda y cumplan con nuestra responsabilidad bautismal de proteger la vida en cada etapa y en cada oportunidad.
