New State Abortion Laws Put Supreme Court Under the MicroscopePro-life reforms in Arkansas, Montana, Arizona raise direct challenge to Roe precedent

A bevy of state laws restricting abortion are ratcheting up the pressure on the Supreme Court to reconsider the lawfulness of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

Arkansas passed a sweeping ban on any abortion performed in the state with an exception for those performed to save the health of the mother. The law marks the latest in a line of states considering or passing legislation intended to chip away at legal access to abortion. Pro-life advocates say that a conservative majority on the Supreme Court represents an opportunity for a post-Roelandscape in which abortion laws are returned to state governments, rather than established by the the federal judiciary. Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson (R.) said that his state’s legislation is directly intended to prompt the court to reevaluate Roe. “I signed it because it is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade,” Hutchinson said. “I think there’s a very narrow chance that the Supreme Court will accept that case, but we’ll see.”

Center Saving Babies From Abortion Opens Next to Largest Planned Parenthood in Texas

The Prestonwood Pregnancy Center has been helping mothers choose life for their unborn babies for almost 30 years in Texas.

Now, the pro-life organization has a new location in Dallas, right next to the largest Planned Parenthood abortion facility in the state, Fox News reports.

Since the recent move, the pregnancy center has seen a 50% increase in clients with 90% choosing life for their unborn babies, according to the report.

“An unplanned pregnancy is one of the greatest challenges a woman can face, especially during a time of economic hardship like the one we are living through,” center director Leanne Jamieson said. “Our mission is to meet these women where they are and let them know they are not walking this road alone.”

The new facility is located in southwest Dallas in a low-income community. It provides free services to pregnant and parenting mothers, including pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STI/STD testing, counseling, medical referrals and childbirth classes.

Prestonwood also has a pregnancy center in Richardson and a mobile unit.

It began in 1991 as a ministry led by Pastor Jack Graham and Prestonwood Baptist Church. According to its website, the pregnancy center has served more than 70,000 clients in the past three decades.

Graham told Fox News that the move next to Planned Parenthood is a huge opportunity to help families in need.

“I truly believe this relocation is the greatest opportunity we’ve had in our 29 years of operating to offer hope where it’s been lost, to offer a better choice that leads to life instead of death and to show grace and love at the very moment when many women are their greatest need,” Graham said.

Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar abortion chain that reported a record 345,627 abortions and $1.6 billion in revenue last year. In contrast, pro-life pregnancy centers have a fraction of its budget and many rely heavily on volunteers, yet they provide free support to countless mothers and babies every year. Abortion rates are dropping steadily all across America, and it is largely because of pro-life pregnancy centers like Prestonwood that provide help to the most vulnerable families in the nation.

Closing of Abortion Clinics

Anytime the abortion industry complains about hard times, pro life advocates have good reasons to rejoice.  Independent abortion clinics are struggling financially and may close due to the impact of covid-19.  Hooray!

“On-the-ground access to abortion care is changing every minute,” Nikki Madsen, executive directive of the Abortion Care Network said.  “If we lose clinics, there would be 10 states that would have no care after 11 weeks of pregnancy, and 4 states that would have no care at all.

In my mind I want all abortions stopped, but even a small step is reason to rejoice.
