CWN Editor's Note: “As Catholics in a post-Roe world, we continue to respond to our call to build a culture of life that supports the dignity of every person at every stage,” the US Conference of Catholic Bishops stated in an action alert. “Encourage your members of Congress to pass legislation that advances the health, safety, and flourishing of women, children, and families.”

Examples of such legislation, in the USCCB’s judgment, include the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, the PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act, and the Child Tax Credit, as well as support for “paid family leave, pregnancy resource centers, child care and pre-kindergarten programs, housing, nutrition, maternal and child health, adoption, healthy relationships, environmental protections, inclusion of immigrant families in social programs, and the end of marriage penalties.”
