Even abortion industry leaders believe that Roe v. Wade is doomed.
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain. It aborts more than 350,000 unborn babies every year while reporting billion-dollar revenues. Now, its top executives are scrambling to make plans to keep its deadly business going in anticipation of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the 49-year-old ruling this summer.
Speaking with The NM Political Report this week, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains CEO Adrienne Mansanares said she celebrated the 49th anniversary of Roe on Jan. 22, but this year may have been the last.
“Many of us are worried this is the last time we’ll celebrate that anniversary, that Roe is really going away,” Mansanares said.

In December, the U.S. Supreme Court heard a Mississippi case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, that directly challenges Roe. Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch asked the high court to overturn its infamous abortion ruling and allow states to protect unborn babies from abortion again. Currently, states are prohibited from banning abortions before viability, about 22 weeks of pregnancy.
A ruling is expected this summer, likely in June.
Mansanares and others point to the Texas heartbeat law as an indication that the Supreme Court may overturn Roe. Texas is the first state in 49 years to be allowed to enforce a pre-viability abortion ban. Though the court battle is on-going, the Supreme Court refused twice to temporarily block enforcement of the law.
Without Roe, Mansanares speculated that 25 other states would be “emboldened” to follow Texas and ban abortions.
“The Supreme Court has not stood up for our constitutional rights,” she told the news outlet, slamming its decisions on the Texas law as “devastating.”
Mansanares, who just took on the new role as CEO, said they are making plans to expand abortions in New Mexico, where abortions will remain legal even if Roe is overturned, including a new larger facility in Albuquerque.
The goal is to be a destination spot for pregnant mothers from other states to travel to abort their unborn babies.
If Roe goes, Mansanares anticipated that more abortion groups will start working together to expand abortions in states where they remain legal. She also mentioned expanding “telehealth,” meaning selling abortion drugs to pregnant mothers without ever seeing them in person.
Since 1973, nearly 63.5 million unborn babies and hundreds, perhaps thousands, of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions. Abortions are not health care. They do not save lives or heal; their purpose is to kill unborn babies – unique, irreplaceable human beings who deserve a right to life.
Polls consistently show that a strong majority of Americans want greater legal protections for the unborn.
Without Roe, the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion research group, predicts that 26 states will ban abortions, and experts say hundreds of thousands of unborn babies would be spared from abortions every year.
