Number of Abortions is Down

Since abortion was legalized throughout pregnancy in nineteen-seventy-three, the pro-life movement has worked tirelessly to protect unborn babies.  I got involved two years after Roe, so I’ve witnessed most of the history of our movement.  And I have very good news to report.  The number of abortions in America has dropped by a half-million since peaking in nineteen-ninety.  That means each year a half-million babies and their mothers are spared from the lethal brutality of abortion.  Why the decrease?  It’s pro-life education, legislation, women help clinics and modern science like ultrasound.  It’s because the diverse pro-life movement is working together toward ultimate victory of ending all abortion.  And I’m optimistic we’ll win, but there’s lots of hard work yet to do.
