Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overrule Roe v. Wade , nine states have made it illegal for women to obtain an abortion in most circumstances, while seven other states are set to make abortion illegal or they already have pre- Roe abortion bans on the books.
So-called “trigger bans” in Kentucky, Louisiana and South Dakota made abortion illegal automatically after the Supreme Court reversed Roe . Other states, such as Arkansas , made abortion illegal upon approval from the governor and attorney general.
Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) pledged to fight to ensure abortion is protected across the United States via federal law. Some pro-choice organizations are suing to stop abortion bans, but the Supreme Court on Thursday ordered lower courts to vacate decisions against pro-life laws considering the decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health.

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!
