Abortion activists deceive middle-of-the-road voters when they paint a bleak picture about the future of abortion in America.
While complaining about pro-life efforts, they quietly have been pushing hundreds of pro-abortion bills across the country – all while trying to hide how America already is one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and how nearly 1 million unborn babies are aborted in the U.S. each year.
A new report from the National Institute for Reproductive Health identified 944 pro-abortion bills that were introduced in 2019, including 147 that passed.
The pro-abortion group praised Nevada, New Jersey and Maine for passing a record-breaking amount of pro-abortion legislation in 2019, including laws forcing taxpayers to fund abortions through Medicaid and to allow at-home abortions.
… states like California, Illinois, and New York enacted the most policies toward reproductive rights in 2019. If you want to measure the most proactive states by number of bills introduced, however, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Tennessee, Iowa, Arizona, and Michigian all make the list—some of which may be less expected due to their otherwise conservative policies.
NIRH’s report ends with recommendations for state and city advocates and elected officials to take on in 2020. These recommendations include codifying the right to choose in-state laws, decriminalizing the pursuit and management of one’s own abortion, and ensuring schools provide adequate support to pregnant students.
NIRH president Andrea Miller said she hopes to see even more pro-abortion legislation pass in 2020, including in Virginia where Democrats now control the state legislature.
“We hope this report will remind people that they have tremendous potential and power to engage at the state and local level,” Miller said.
Actually, it appears pro-abortion political powerhouses are what really controlled these states’ actions, not voters. In 2018, for example, Oregon considered a ballot measure about whether state taxpayers should be forced to pay for elective abortions. When The Portland Business Journal analyzed political spending on the measure, it discovered that almost all of the money in favor of taxpayer-funded abortions came from out-of-state pro-abortion groups. In contrast, the money to support the pro-life measure came from Oregonians.
Pro-abortion groups vastly outspend pro-life organizations on elections. According to the Pacific Standard, groups lobbying on behalf of the billion-dollar abortion industry have spent as much as 900 percent more than pro-life groups in recent elections.

What’s more, polls consistently show that most Americans support at least some protections for unborn babies, including abortion restrictions after the first trimester and limits on taxpayer-funded abortions.
Abortion activists know this, and it is why they had to manufacture a crisis about shrinking abortion access and back alley abortions to disguise their radical agenda.
It is clear that they are going to continue to push the false narrative in the 2020 election as well.
“I expect that we’ll see this as part of the discourse in the electoral cycle, and that elected officials and advocates are really clear about the attacks coming from the federal government, and from a number of states, and are building the capacity to make change,” Miller told Fast Company.
The real crisis is that hundreds of unique, living unborn babies are being killed every day throughout the U.S. Since 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, more than 61 million babies have died and millions of mothers have been hurt by the lies and deception of the abortion industry.
Pro-life laws, educational efforts, charities and support organizations do save lives, as even respected pro-abortion researchers acknowledge. What America really needs is an end to abortion and the enactment of new laws that protect the human rights of every human being, born and unborn.
