Reason for Optimism for LIFE

Following South Dakota's enactment of the most pro-life law in America, Roe v. Wade may well be revisited in the not too distant future


As a result, USA Today recently published an article (based largely on data from the pro-abortion group, the Alan Guttmacher Institute) which predicts what would be likely to happen if Roe v. Wade were overturned and abortion became a state-by-state issue again.


The results are quite surprising and positive for LIFE. Only 16 states are likely to continue abortion on demand---any time, any place, for any reason---if Roe v Wade were overturned. This would include seven states on the West Coast and almost every state in the Northeast, but only a third of the U.S population.


By contrast, at least 22 states containing half of all Americans would almost definitely enact either complete or near-complete abortion bans, recognizing that the unborn child is a person, deserving of basic human rights like the rest of us.


This is very encouraging and underlines the importance of using our influence to enact laws like the Unborn Child Amendment in South Dakota.
