The Guttmacher Institute, which was initially founded as the research arm of the Planned Parenthood abortion business, recently released a report about the pro-life gains in state legislatures across the country, calling 2021 the “most devastating” legislative session in decades for pro-abortion supporters. 

The far-left pro-abortion group writes, “The number of abortion restrictions—and specifically bans on abortion designed to directly challenge Roe v. Wade and the U.S. constitutional right to abortion—that have swiftly been enacted over the past four months is unprecedented. If this trend continues, 2021 will end up as the most damaging antiabortion state legislative session in a decade—and perhaps ever.” 

The group also notes the following:

Since January, there have been 536 abortion restrictions, including 146 abortion bans, introduced across 46 states (all counts current as of April 29, 2021). A whopping 61 of those restrictions have been enacted across 13 states, including eight bans.

To put those figures in context, by this time in 2011—the year previously regarded as the most hostile to abortion rights since Roe was decided—42 restrictions had been enacted, including six bans.

Between April 26 and April 29, 28 new restrictions were signed into law in seven states—almost half (46%) of the restrictions passed so far in 2021. This was the highest number of new restrictions signed in a single week in at least a decade. That count includes multiple abortion bans that directly challenge Roe: a near-total ban on abortion in Oklahoma, six-week abortion bans in Idaho and Oklahoma, a 20-week ban in Montana, and a ban on abortion for non-lethal genetic anomalies in Arizona.

Another alarming trend is states’ continued focus on restricting medication abortion, with four new restrictions in Montana, three in Indiana and another restriction in Arizona.

The anti-life research group’s concerns over restrictions on the killing of unborn children should be a positive for pro-lifers, although there is much road ahead in protecting the right to life during the Joe Biden regime.

They know not what they do. I guess they just don’t realize some sins are unforgivable. This is what happens when you take God out of our schools!

You pr- murders who want an abortion go for it but YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO EXPECT MY TAX DOLLARS TO PAY FOR THAT MURDER of HUMAN LIFE! You want to murder an innocent child that’s on you, we live in the 21 st Century, birth control has been around for over 60 years now, stop being STUPID go on the pill, have your tubes tied, get a hysterectomy theirs the alternative, nobody forced you to get pregnant that your fault nobody else’s, so if you do get pregnant you are killing a child and that’s the bottom line!
