A Joint Statement on the Supreme Court’s Roe Reversal

Jun 24, 2022

We, the Episcopal bishops of Georgia, join with leaders of faith traditions, and many others around the State of Georgia, in lamenting the US Supreme Court decision in the case of Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. We hurt with all who are grieved and angered by the court’s action.

Since 1967, the Episcopal Church, acting through its General Convention, has been on the record for upholding legal abortions with the critical nuance that comes from the lived experiences of our parishioners and clergy.

That statement as affirmed in 1976 can be found in full here.

We will continue in prayer for all impacted by this decision and will work, when appropriate, to advocate for legislation that reflects these principles.
