INDIANA (WEHT) – The Right to Life President and Chief Executive Officer Mike Fichter hosted a virtual media briefing today at 12 p.m. to share remarks about today’s historical ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Fichter emphasized that there should be support and care for the mother and child, and the group is hopeful towards the State Legislature to make abortion restrictions. Fichter also said the organization liked how every state could now decide on the issue of abortion.

Fichter said that most abortions are used as birth control, and that numbers with conceptions due to rape are at 1%, according to numbers Right to Life looked into. Fichter says the organization sees women and babies as victims of abortion, and the organization doesn’t think criminalizing the act of traveling for an abortion is the way to go.

Right to Life says that sex education should be brought to the classroom so people are more informed. In terms of contraceptives, they are neutral on the matter of “true contraceptives,” but don’t like abortion as a form of contraception.
