The pro-life movement's more motivated than ever

Though there were some setbacks this year, pro-life groups are getting ready for a new season.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, seven states have passed constitutional amendments on abortion. And with the financial backing to continue creating confusion, the abortion lobby will soon be asking voters in several other states to approve abortion to an extreme.

Peter Northcott of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) says that is only motivating pro-lifers to fight harder in the coming year.

Part of the plan, he says, is to focus on what pro-life laws have done for women, "leading with those stories about women that were protected through parental notification, through laws that have upheld the dignity of human life -- that's one thing that we need to lead with from the get-go."

Another motivator is the fact that thousands of women changed their minds after taking the first pill in the chemical abortion regimen.

"You don't have to be pro-life to oppose these referendums with enshrining abortion up to birth, with the removal of parental notification laws, informed consent laws, and enshrining tax-funded abortion," Northcott submits.

New, Dr. Michael New

In November, The Wall Street Journal released the results of a poll it conducted with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) that supposedly showed a substantial short-term gain in support for legal abortion this year. "Support for abortion access is near record," it claims.

But Dr. Michael New of the Charlotte Lozier Institute calls that misleading.

"It shows that pro-lifers are gaining in the courtroom of public opinion," he relays. "A percentage of people who thought that a pregnant woman should be able to obtain an abortion for any reason actually fell … from 57% to 55% over the past year. So, contrary to what The Wall Street Journal is saying, we've seen a slight increase in public sentiment since the Dobbs decision."

Other studies back up his analysis.

"Gallup does a poll on abortion every year, and their poll in 2023 saw a 5% gain in pro-life sentiment," Dr. New reports. "Similarly, the poll that Knights of Columbus conducts with Marist every year also showed a loss of stability in abortion attitudes."

So he is calling out the abortion forces for continuing their trend of lies and deception on this issue.
