Unborn babies are “disproportionately harmed” by pro-abortion laws, to borrow a phrase from the left.
Yet, mainstream news outlets rarely mention these babies at all, and almost never in stories about abortion. Instead, news outlets consistently parade talking points from the pro-abortion movement about how pro-life laws “disproportionately harm” certain groups of women.
A USA Today article this week used the phrase to highlight a new report about Latino women in the 26 states that ban or soon likely will ban abortions.
The research, which comes from the pro-abortion National Partnership for Women & Families and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice, found that more than 6.5 million Latino women of childbearing age live in these states.
Rather than celebrate the lives that these laws are saving or focus on the need to support mothers and babies in need, the researchers bemoaned how pro-life legislation will reduce abortions in the Latino community.
Shaina Goodman, of the National Partnership for Women & Families, told USA Today that their report exposes the “very real consequences to real people’s lives when you ban abortions.” She even had the audacity to claim that abortion bans hurt children.

The report provides “a picture of just who is most harmed by abortion bans. It’s moms with young children. It’s people who are struggling to make ends meet. And critically, it’s people who live their lives at the intersection of all of these different identities,” she said.
Goodman said many Latino women already are mothers who are struggling financially. Some face discrimination and language barriers, work low-earning jobs with few benefits and lack health insurance.
But all of these are problems that can be solved without aborting unborn babies.
Babies in the womb also are real people who have been disproportionately harmed by pro-abortion laws for decades. Under Roe v. Wade, more than 63 million unborn babies were aborted legally across the U.S., and hundreds of thousands will continue to be aborted post-Roe. Each of these babies was a unique, living and irreplaceable human being who deserved a right to life.
Now, for the first time in 50 years, states are allowed to protect unborn babies from abortion again. More than a dozen states are enforcing abortion bans, and others are fighting in court to do the same.
New research estimates up to 10,000 unborn babies have been saved from abortion since the laws went into effect this summer, and hundreds of thousands more are expected to be saved from death in the coming years.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are ramping up efforts to support pregnant and parenting families in need, providing financial aid and health care, diapers and cribs, counseling and emotional support, temporary shelter, scholarships and more — real solutions for families in crisis.
Babies in the womb of all races and cultures are valuable members of the family, and, thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, Americans finally are allowed to protect their right to life again.
