CWN Editor's Note: The US Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the constitutionality of Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which offers legal protection to most unborn children after the 15th week of pregnancy.

“Pre-born babies and their moms need our prayers and fasting, especially tomorrow [December 1],” the US bishops’ pro-life office said on the eve of the oral arguments. Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, also issued a statement.
