Props to the New York Times for affirming what we know; the pro-life movement has been making gains and racking up victories across the country in our fight to abolish abortion and protect preborn babies and families from the violence of abortion.
Some highlights from the article, include:
- “The right is pouncing on this moment of tumult, threatening to wield abortion politics to its favor in the 2020 presidential race. A leading anti-abortion political group, the Susan B. Anthony List, has more than doubled its campaign budget, from $18 million in 2016 to $41 million this cycle. Its goal is to reach four million voters, up from 1.2 million in 2016. The group says surveys it has conducted in swing states like Arizona and North Carolina show that portraying Democrats as supporters of infanticide — an allegation the left says is patently false — can win neutral voters to their side.”
Of course, many elected Democrats do support infanticide- the governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, said as much in an interview earlier this year where he said parents should be allowed to take their babies home after a botched abortion and kill the baby when they get home.
- “Amid the high political maneuvering, there are fundamental internal divisions that the abortion rights movement has not resolved, especially between Planned Parenthood and the independent clinics that perform most abortion procedures.”
The New York Times points out that independent abortion facilities are “struggling”. Hmm maybe because more and more people are realizing the violence of abortion and that abortion vendors prey on vulnerable women to commit abortions?
- Finally, worth noting, “Independent clinics like Ms. Kromenaker’s and Ms. Gray’s in Alabama — unaffiliated with Planned Parenthood — perform about 60 percent of the country’s abortion procedures, according to groups that track the data. Those clinics have essentially no lobbying or political power.”
For groups like Students for Life Action, closing low-margin abortion facilities might be easier at first than some Planned Parenthood facilities. Turning away just 25 or 50 women a week who are seeking abortion could be enough to lead the abortion to close.
