Bishops Call for a Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life
From Friday, August 3, 2018 to Friday, September 28, 2018, U.S. bishops are calling for a nine-week Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life. In addition to the current invitation to fast on Fridays, participants are encouraged to pray one Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be for the intention of the novena.

Participants will also be provided with weekly opportunities to learn more about Roe v. Wade, and share that information with their representatives.
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's announcement that he will retire has catapulted Roe v. Wade (the Supreme Court's landmark abortion case) into the news. Pro-abortion groups are pulling out all the stops to urge the U.S. Senate to reject any nominee who does not promise to publicly endorse Roe. And they are misrepresenting the legal and social reality of Roe and what would happen if it is overturned.
