State Legislatures Have Passed 334 Pro-Life Laws in the Last 5 Years Saving Babies From Abortion

An interesting story from about STATE Laws against abortion. This follows this post about abortion as genocide.For two very interesting books click HERE.

In the past five years, state lawmakers have passed a huge number of pro-life laws to protect unborn babies and their moms from abortion, according to a new report.
These new laws are accompanying even more good news for unborn babies and moms. Abortion rates are dropping to new lows since Roe v. Wade, down from a high point of approximately 1.6 million abortions per year to about 1.1 million. Teen pregnancy and abortion rates specifically are dropping to all-time lows, and a record-number of abortion facilities are shutting their doors. Abortion numbers are still shockingly high in the U.S., but these new pro-life laws could bring an even steeper drop in abortions in the coming years.
So far this year, states passed 46 pro-life laws and lawmakers introduced 445 pro-life bills, according to Guttmacher. Many of the pro-life measures came about as a direct result of the undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress, which showed evidence that Planned Parenthood may be illegally profiting off the sale of aborted babies’ body parts.
The Guttmacher analysis found that 24 states introduced measures to take away taxpayer dollars from Planned Parenthood after the first undercover video came out last July. Of those, 10 states have laws in effect or are awaiting implementation, and nine states have had their laws blocked by lawsuits from Planned Parenthood or by other means, the report found.
Other legislation included bans on brutal dismemberment abortions and abortions after 20 weeks when scientific evidence shows that unborn babies can feel intense pain. Dismemberment abortion, performed on a fully-formed, living unborn baby usually in the second trimester, is a barbaric and dangerous procedure in which the unborn child is literally ripped apart in the womb and pulled out in pieces. Many of the states modeled their legislation based on a bill from the National Right to Life Committee that would ban “dismemberment abortion,” using forceps, clamps, scissors or similar instruments on a living unborn baby to remove him or her from the womb in pieces. Such instruments are used in dilation and evacuation abortions.
Here is the breakdown of the laws from the report:
  • By the end of June, four states enacted legislation to ban the most common method used to perform abortions during the second trimester. The Mississippi and West Virginia laws are in effect; the other two have been challenged in court. (Similar provisions enacted last year in Kansas and Oklahoma are also blocked pending legal action.)
  • South Carolina and North Dakota both enacted measures banning abortion at or beyond 20 weeks postfertilization, which is equivalent to 22 weeks after the woman’s last menstrual period. This brings to 16 the number of states with these laws in effect (see State Policies on Later Abortion).
  • Indiana and Louisiana adopted provisions banning abortions under specific circumstances. The Louisiana law banned abortions at or after 20 weeks postfertilization in cases of diagnosed genetic anomaly; the law is slated to go into effect on August 1. Indiana adopted a groundbreaking measure to ban abortion for purposes of race or sex selection, in cases of a genetic anomaly, or because of the fetus’s color, national origin or ancestry; enforcement of the measure is blocked pending the outcome of a legal challenge.
  • Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed a sweeping measure that would have banned all abortions except those necessary to protect the woman’s life.
Other legislation included waiting periods, informed consent requirements and abortion facility regulations, the report found. Several states also introduced or passed legislation to ban discriminatory abortions based on the unborn baby’s sex, race or a disability.
While most of the legislation involved abortion restrictions, a few states also passed pro-abortion laws. According to the report, there were 22 new pro-abortion laws enacted this year.

Democrats are taking the phony war on women to an absurd new level, replacing male delegates for next weeks Democrat convention with women just because the male delegates are men. Is used to be that the war on women nonsense was reserved for pro-life advocates as a way of falsely turning opposition to abortion into some made-up hatred for women.
Now, Democrats are eating their own. As the Washington Examiner reports:
The Democratic National Convention ordered the state party of Vermont to replace two delegates — because they’re men.
State Sen. Tim Ashe and party insider Ken Dean were ordered to be replaced by the DNC so that the party could achieve a gender balance. Dean and Ashe have filed a formal complaint with the DNC’s credentials committee, according to the Associated Press.
Dean and Ashe were elected by the people of Vermont to serve as delegates on June 11. Everything was fine until July 5, when the DNC ordered the state party to replace the two men with women.

This is not gender balance, it’s a false attempt by the DNC to make the party appear more balanced than it is. The people wanted these two men, who are both well-known and respected in the state, to go to the convention. Instead, they will be replaced by two women for the sake of gender balance.
This shows what a sham the DNC’s alleged moral high ground on gender issues is. The Left constantly complains about there not being enough women in office, but neglect the fact that the people are making the decision. And the people of Vermont chose these two men, but because the DNC wants to be able to hype how diverse and inclusive it is, the men were replaced with women.
As Planned Parenthood’s best friend receives the nomination next week, it appears Democrats are bowing at their knee.
