Good News: Number Of Abortions Plummets To New All-Time Low Since Roe v. Wade

This is very good news!

The true Civil Rights issue of the day is not anything to do with color or sexual orientation, but that of the most basic, fundamental right of all: life.

Ever since the decision in Roe v. Wade was made, millions of children have died before they even had a chance to experience the joys of life, a crime not only against humanity, but a heinous act of idolatry that has surely brought some of God’s judgment down on our nation.

Well, it seems the pro-life crowd finally has some news to celebrate about as a new report indicates that the rate of abortions being performed has dropped significantly since 2011, hitting its lowest since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

According to the liberal Guttmacher Institute, the abortion rate has dropped from more than 1 million in 2011 to 926,000 in 2014 and 862,000 in 2017 — a 20 percent decrease during this seven-year time period.

Although pro-life changes on a state level are certainly a step in the right direction, Guttmacher said it believed these new laws were not the driving force behind the drop in abortions.

In their words:

With the available evidence, it is impossible to pinpoint exactly which factors drove recent declines, and to what degree. However, previous Guttmacher analyses have documented that abortion restrictions, while incredibly harmful at an individual level, were not the main driver of national declines in the abortion rate in the 2008–2011 or 2011–2014 time periods. Much the same appears to hold true for the 2011–2017 timeframe….Rather, the decline in abortions appears to be part of a broader decline in pregnancies, as evidenced by fewer births over the same period.

But, while the number of births overall may be dropping, the report also said that the ratio of abortions to overall pregnancies had also fallen since 2011 by 13 percent.

Interestingly, Guttmacher reported that many of the states experiencing a drop in the abortion rate did not have any new restrictions on the murderous act, nor had they made access to abortion easier. Only five states saw an increase in abortion activity between 2011 and 2017.

Really surprising is the fact that 15 states increased the number of abortion clinics, but 13 of those states actually saw declines in the abortion rates, as did the eight of nine states where the number of clinics remained the same.

Perhaps, what this really signals, is that the ministries out there who are upholding the Word of God and are standing up for the rights of the unborn are beginning to have an impact where it matters most: the hearts and minds of the people.

Maybe, just maybe, the truth is finally getting out there enough that folks can no longer ignore the reality behind the act of abortion, coming to grips with the dark act as murder?

Either way, churches, Christians, ministries, and conservatives need to keep up the good work. This is no time to get complacent or prideful. Keep fighting, keep loving the unlovable, and providing those considering abortion with true, love, understanding, and hope.

Kevin McCarthy Says Top Dems Who Walked Out Of White House Meeting Are ‘Infatuated’ With Impeaching Trump

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the top member of the GOP in the House of Representatives, told his side of the story about the now infamous meeting that took place in the White House that featured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer all walking out the door in the middle of things. According to McCarthy, the reason for their departure is because they are “infatuated” with the idea of impeaching President Trump. Pelosi recently launched an impeachment inquiry into the president not that long ago over a phone call he made to Ukraine concerning possibly shady business dealings involving Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Check out what McCarthy had to say via Fox News: “They left the meeting, other Democrats stayed and we had the most normal meeting you could ever have that was productive with the general of the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense and the president talking about how do we keep the homeland safe,” he said. “The president starts out and he provides the letter he sent to the president of Turkey, Erdogan,” he continued, claiming Pelosi did not look at it when it came to her turn and instead put it face down on the table. “I have served with six presidents,” the Maryland lawmaker said in a clip played by host Laura Ingraham. “Never… have I seen a president treat so disrespectfully a coequal branch of the government of the United States.” “These people are infatuated — they are fixated on impeaching this president instead of worrying about fixing our problems,” he said. McCarthy went on to say, “Who is the leader? The person who stayed in the room and had a discussion. The people who left the…

Sources Claim Turkish President Erdogan Tossed Trump Letter In The Garbage

Published

on

Sources are claiming that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan wasn’t too thrilled about the letter he received from President Trump that warned him not to take action along the Syrian border and tossed the letter in the trash. These same sources, who are close to Erdogan, confirmed with the BBC on Thursday that he “thoroughly rejected” the president’s letter, in which Trump threatened to annihilate Turkey’s economy if he decided to go forward with military action in Syria following Trump’s announcement several days prior to pull troops from the northeast of Syria. Here’s more from Fox News: Erdogan reportedly took the letter warning against being a “fool” and tossed it “in the bin,” the sources said. The letter, first obtained by Fox Business Network, came the same day Erdogan launched a Turkish military offensive into Syria, claiming it wanted to “neutralize terror threats” and establish a “safe zone.” Turkish forces last Wednesday carried out airstrikes and later announced ground troops had invaded northeastern Syria. Nearly all U.S. troops there have been removed and will be redeployed in the region in the coming weeks, something critics said was the “green light” for Erdogan to act. Here’s the letter Trump sent to Erdogan via Trish Regan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/trish_regan/status/1184559361638748161 Trump took a lot of criticism for his decision to remove troops from Syria, with many folks saying that this move was basically granting permission for Erdogan and Turkish forces to waltz into Syria and attack our Kurdish allies, essentially leaving our “friends” hanging. The president has since defended his actions saying the move to pull troops was not a “green light” for the attack on the Kurds.
