A little more than 100 miles south of Berlin, Germany lies the small town of Lomnitz. In the early 20th century, when millions of Europeans emigrated to the United States in search of a better life, a small group of immigrants from Lomnitz was processed through Ellis Island. The U.S. federal government assigned the last name "Lomnitzer" to these immigrants.

This past week we observed the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized abortion throughout the United States. As in past years, hundreds of thousands gathered in Washington to pray, to march, to lobby, and to work for the end to abortion. We mourn the lives that have been lost in 45 years of legalized abortion. At the same time, we look to the future with hope for those that might be saved. Recent developments offer great promise in protecting the most vulnerable among us.

I can still see the tiny pink socks. And boxes and boxes of diapers. Most of all, I remember the warmth and cheeriness of the staff as I toured the St. Gianna Molla Pregnancy Help Center in downtown Buffalo, New York. Their love and dedication shone brightly through every word and smile. How tragic that their service to women, children, and families is at great risk this February, when the Supreme Court hears NIFLA vs. Becerra—a case that has nationwide ramifications.
