Prosecutors vowed Baltimore City and Prince George's County will be safe spaces for women seeking abortions.
The U.S. Supreme Court is set to decide whether to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion case. Ahead of the Supreme Court's decision, both jurisdiction's state's attorneys announced they will not prosecute anyone who seeks abortion care and those who provide it.
"Let me be clear that as the Baltimore City state's attorney, I will do everything in my power to ensure that these draconian laws never take heed in Baltimore City. We will vigilantly and unequivocally support a woman's right to choose what is best for her body, her life and her family," Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said Wednesday at a news conference.
Baltimore Archbishop William Lori is asking the Catholic faithful to band together. In an article published in The Catholic Review, Lori said various parishes within the archdiocese are launching pro-life pregnancy centers.
