WASHINGTON  -- The U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade is "tremendously important" for the nation and the cause of life, but it's not "a day simply for celebration," said the chairman of the U.S. bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities and the Supreme Chaplain of the Knights of Columbus.

"As happy as we may be over this decision," Baltimore Archbishop William E. Lori said, "I think it is also important for us to recognize our need, our obligation to redouble our efforts to help women in difficult pregnancies."

The archbishop made the comments in an interview via Zoom shortly after the court handed down its ruling June 24.

In addition, the U.S. bishops in 2020 launched a new initiative called "Walking with Moms in Need," which aims to engage every Catholic parish "in providing a safety net to ensure that pregnant and parenting moms have the resources, love and support they need to nurture the lives of their children."
