Four States Become Abortion Sanctuaries to Kill as Many Babies in Abortion as Possible

Red and blue states are moving in opposite directions on abortion as many anticipate the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn or modify Roe v. Wade this summer.

While pro-life states have passed a record number of laws to protect unborn babies from abortion already this year, pro-abortion states have been taking aggressive action to expand abortions.

A new Washington Examiner piece exposed efforts by four states in particular that have thrown out the “safe, legal and rare” mentality and replaced it with the notion that more abortions and fewer safety regulations are a good thing.

They are California, Colorado, Oregon and Illinois.

“We’ll be a sanctuary” for abortion, California Gov. Gavin Newsom told the AP in December.

He followed up his promise in January by budgeting $20 million of taxpayers’ money to encourage medical students to become abortionists. His budget also includes another $20 million to help abortion facilities “enhance security” and “secure their physical and information technology infrastructure.”

Other plans include spending tax dollars to “help” pregnant mothers from pro-life states, like neighboring Idaho, to come to California to abort their unborn babies. California already forces taxpayers to pay for abortions for its low-income residents.

Here’s more from the Examiner:

The California Legislative Women’s Caucus has proposed a suite of bills aimed at propping up access to abortion for women coming from out of state. One bill would enhance privacy protections for abortion providers who perform the procedure on a patient from a state with a ban in place, a measure that aims to shield providers in California from legal conflict with abortion opponents in another state. Another bill would create a centralized webpage where women across the U.S. can access information on how to get an abortion in California. The caucus also proposed a bill to establish a state-run fund that people could donate to in order to assist women who were denied abortions in other states by paying the costs of travel, housing, meals, child care, and other services while seeking the procedure in California.

Oregon lawmakers are taking similar actions. In March, they approved $15 million in their state budget to pay for women both in and out of state to travel for abortions and to increase the number of abortion facilities in the state.

Oregon House Speaker Dan Rayfield, D-Corvallis, said they created the new abortion fund to “mitigate harm” caused by the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade this summer.

In Illinois and Colorado, state lawmakers recently got rid of the very few limits on abortion that still exist in their states.

Colorado just passed a radical pro-abortion bill that declares abortion to be a “fundamental right” under state law and denies rights and legal protections to any “fertilized egg, embryo or fetus” up to birth. It also prevents cities and municipalities from banning abortions through local ordinances such as others have done through the Sanctuary City for the Unborn movement.

Many believe the new Colorado legislation also would get rid of the state parental notification law, which requires at least one parent of an underage girl to be notified before she has an abortion.

Illinois lawmakers already repealed their parental notification law last December, despite massive public opposition. NBC 5 Chicago reported state residents submitted nearly 50,000 notices of opposition to the legislation, and a 2021 poll found 72 percent of Illinois voters support the parental notification law, including many who identified as pro-choice.

All four states force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions and allow late-term abortions on viable, healthy unborn babies with healthy mothers. They do not have informed consent laws for mothers or basic health and safety standards for abortion facilities, and they allow non-doctors to perform abortions – putting both mothers’ and unborn babies’ lives at risk.

Hundreds of thousands of unborn babies are aborted in these four states alone every year, and the numbers are expected to rise with their aggressive efforts to expand abortions.

However, many other states are taking bold action to protect unborn babies from abortion and support mothers in need. The Guttmacher Institute estimates 26 states “are certain or likely to ban abortions” if the Supreme Court gets rid of Roe. Researchers estimate abortion numbers would drop by about 120,000 in the first year and potentially even more in subsequent years if the high court allows states to ban abortions again.

Right now, Roe and later abortion rulings force states to legalize the killing of unborn babies without limits up to viability. As a result, more than 63 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions in the past 50 years.

The Supreme Court likely will issue its ruling on the abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health in June.
