For every issue, it seems, there is always good news and bad news. For the pro-life movement, the good news is that the U.S. abortion rate has been falling for over a decade and, now, is at its lowest level since 1974.
The bad news is that, even at the reduced rate, a child is aborted once every 50 seconds and, despite a new pro-life Supreme Court, the “blue wave” of the 2018 midterms swept away the pro-life majority in Congress, eliminating the prospect of legislation aimed at limiting abortion for the foreseeable future.
The good news is that a number of conservative states have passed or are considering bills protecting the unborn. The bad news is that the pink light that bathed One World Trade Center after the passage of New York’s Reproductive Health Act reflects a corrupted conscience unbothered not only by the abortion of full-term babies but by the termination of those surviving abortion.
