Planned Parenthood profits off of the death of unborn children every day.
Conservatives are trying to protect life, but aren’t doing a great job.
And Planned Parenthood continues to succeed, and they just got great news for a sick reason.
Last week, 300,000 pro-life Americans marched in Washington, D.C. against abortion.
The March For Life’s massive numbers were largely young people who are full of hope.
Their signs bear the slogan “We Are The Pro-Life Generation.”
And Christians should pray that’s true because right now things aren’t going well for the pro-life movement.
In 2018, Planned Parenthood administered a record number of abortions, 332,757 that hasn’t been matched anytime passed 2011.
This massive number shows that abortions are far from declining.
And things are only getting worse.
Since the March for Life, already there were two massive losses for the pro-life movement that will be great for Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics.
For one, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law legalizing late-term abortion, up to the moment of birth in many cases.
To celebrate, Cuomo ordered city buildings, including the Memorial to the 9/11 terrorist attack, to light up with pink lights.
But that isn’t the only major change in abortion laws in the past week.
A State Judge in Iowa has struck down a law banning all abortions from the time a fetal heartbeat can be detected, usually at around six weeks into a pregnancy.
Iowa’s governor, who signed the law, was majorly disappointed about the ruling.
“I am incredibly disappointed in today’s court ruling, because I believe that if death is determined when a heart stops beating, then a beating heart indicates life,” Gov. Kim Reynolds (R-IA) said in a statement, according to Courthouse News Service.
But the Planned Parenthood office in Iowa was more excited, gleefully tweeting:
“BREAKING: Today, on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a Polk County District judge ruled to protect access to safe and legal abortion in Iowa by striking down the unconstitutional 6-week abortion ban.”
Dr. Jill Meadows, who serves as the Medical Director at that clinic also points out that the Judge struck the law down on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision as the icing on the cake.
“We are pleased that especially today, on the 46th anniversary of the landmark decision Roe v. Wade, abortion care was upheld as a safe and legal part of basic reproductive health care,”
The timing opens up questions about whether the Judge is making a partisan political decision, especially with the date being the anniversary of such a politically charged Supreme Court ruling.
Roe vs. Wade is a 1973 ruling that extends the right to privacy under the Due Process Clause in the 14th Amendment to a women’s right to have an abortion.
That makes it very difficult to restrict abortion at the state level and allows rulings like this one to stand.
But as the Supreme Court begins moving into more favorable territory for conservatives, Roe vs. Wade’s reversal is moving into the realm of possibility.
Do you think the Supreme Court should reverse Roe vs. Wade?
