How the pro-life movement is winning American hearts and minds

Posted by Joseph on 2 February, 2014

This year the annual March for Life in the nation’s capital, the largest anti-abortion rally in the world with about 600,000 attendees, marks a milestone: public opinion in America is changing as the pro-life movement gains more adherents.

Since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in America in 1973, approximately 55 million abortions have been performed. These figures are staggering.

Pope Francis tweeted on Jan. 22, 2014: "“I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable.”

“Think about it – in 2008, more children died from abortion than Americans died in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korean, Vietnam and Gulf War combined,” said Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler in an impassioned speech on the National Mall during the rally held on Jan. 22. “This must stop!”

Who needs enemies? In 2008, 825, 564 babies were aborted, according to the Centers for Disease Control; this easily trumps the 621, 515 total casualties of the seven wars listed above. With these statistics, it is clear the depletion of human capital enacted through abortion is an even greater long-term national security threat than any other mortal enemy we face. No foreign or domestic foe has ever been as deadly to our population as what we are dong systematically to ourselves.

However, at last, a growing number of states are placing limits on abortion. Conservatives made headway in state legislatures across America in the 2010 mid-term elections and were subsequently able to use their power to enact pro-life legislation. Between 2011 and 2013, more state-level restrictions were placed on abortion than in the previous decade, according to a Jan. 22 report on the March for Life rally in The Washington Post.

Public opinion is gradually changing too…
