We’re not even halfway through the year yet, and state legislatures have already introduced over 500 pro-life laws. So far, 61 laws have been passed across 13 states, according to the Guttmacher Institute, which was once associated with Planned Parenthood as their research arm and often tracks such legislation. We may have the most pro-abortion administration in our nation’s history in President Joe Biden, and a Democratic controlled Congress, which won’t even consider legislation protecting babies born alive from failed abortions. Such legislation previously failed in the Senate, thanks to pro-abortion Democrats. That being said, the states are at least not letting the pro-life movement, and more importantly, the unborn, down.
This legislation has the pro-abortion movement, however, terrified. As it should. The Guttmacher Institute, which tracks such legislation, noted that “If this trend continues, 2021 will end up as the most damaging antiabortion state legislative session in a decade—and perhaps ever,” as part of a press release. In all honesty, the Guttmacher Institute is an invaluable source on abortion legislation trends.
Since January, there have been 536 abortion restrictions—including 146 abortion bans—introduced across 46 states.
A whopping 61 of those restrictions have been enacted across 13 states, including 8 bans. #StopTheBans
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
