States Have Passed 51 Pro-Life Laws This Year Saving Babies From Abortions, So Far

States across the United States have already passed 51 pro-life laws saving unborn babies from abortion — which is more than all of the pro-life laws all states passed throughout the entirety of 2014.

This information comes from a new report from the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion organization formerly affiliated with the Planned Parenthood abortion business…

The trend of the number of new pro-life laws on abortion is down over the last few years — not because of lack of support for such laws in state legislatures but because some states have passed most all of the pro-life laws allowed under Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court that few potential pro-life laws remain until the high court either allows additional laws or overturns Roe

Guttmacher acknowledges that the Supreme Court will likely hear one or two abortion cases in the next year or so that could open the floodgates for new laws — such as requiring abortion practitioners to have admitting privileges, new regulations that have shut down abortion clinics that can’t protect women’s health, or bans on abortions like the 20-week abortion ban or the dismemberment abortion ban…

One of the types of new laws states are passing involve longer waiting periods before an abortion so women have a chance to find abortion alternatives.

The 72-hour waiting period in Missouri, for example, is believed to have already saved 200 babies from abortion.
