Tens of thousands of lives protected.

And it’s just the beginning.

The U.S. Supreme Court handed down its Dobbs decision, overturning the egregiously wrong decision in Roe v. Wade dictated by seven men in the ’70s. Now for the first time in 50 years, Americans can enact laws to protect life through their elected representatives.

Almost half the country – 24 states – has honored the will of their people and put pro-life protections in place for both mom and child. We have a long way to go but at least now Americans can come together to build a pro-life consensus – at least now we have a seat at the table.

Current Pro-Life Protections

Learn more about the pro-life landscape as we move into the new Dobbs era.

In June 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson overruled Roe v. Wade. For the first time in nearly 50 years, the ability to set abortion policy was taken out of the hands of unelected judges and returned to the American people. Since then, nearly half the states have worked to enact popular pro-life protections that protect babies at or before 15 weeks’ gestation, the point when science shows that they can feel pain. Some of those protections are currently blocked or working their way through the courts, but many are in effect, protecting women and saving babies’ lives. This map shows each pro-life state’s legal protections and the approximate number of abortions impacted by these laws.

The Estimated Impact on abortions reflects 2020 CDC data or more recent state numbers. For states that protect life at fertilization, numbers reflect all abortions reported in the state. For states with heartbeat laws and pain-capable laws, numbers reflect estimates of abortions that would be prohibited under the law using gestational age data from the states and CDC.

Polling

Despite the reversal of Roe, polls continue to show the American people want strong abortion limits. The American people recognize that the Democrat platform of taxpayer funded late-term abortion on demand is inhumane. Americans acknowledge that scientific advancements continue to point to the humanity of the child in the womb and they reject abortion extremism. Unfortunately, we’re seeing abortion extremism shape the Left’s post-Roe politics today.

Democrats want to override the will of the people in favor of abortion at all costs. They want no limits on abortion-in line with only 7 other countries in the world, alongside human rights abusers like China and North Korea. (bold)This position is deeply unpopular with the American people.

Can’t we all agree that babies with a beating heart, who can suck their thumb and feel pain in the womb, deserve legal protection?

In Today’s America - Life is Winning!

Today, nearly 3,000 health and pregnancy centers support mom and baby, as they outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities fourteen to one. They offer women loving support and real choices. Pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes help both mother and child, not pit one against the other. They provide multi-year support through food, housing, job training, child care, clothing and so much more. Over that last year, pro-life states passed hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to meet the needs of both mother and child.
