Since January 22nd, (the anniversary of Roe v. Wade) the United States has now sanctioned legalized abortion for forty-seven years throughout all fifty states. Since the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision there have been over an estimated 61,628,584 abortions that have ended the lives of innocent human beings.
A recently published analysis by the National Right to Life Committee revealed that there have been more than 61,628,584 abortions (that we know of) since the Supreme Court handed down the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Since then there have virtually been unlimited abortions through the United States.
The good news is that abortions are on the decline, and unborn babies’ rights to life are likely improving. The annual report was released last year and revealed that abortion numbers have reached an all-time low in 2016 across the United States.
Recent studies show that public opinion is on the side of the pro-life movement. A 2019 Gallup Poll found that the majority of Americans are opposed to abortion. In fact, 60% of Americans think most or all abortions should be made illegal. The Gallup Poll is consistent with other polls on the pro life/abortion topic. Other recent polls have revealed similar findings. A recent survey showed that the majority of Americans think that bans on abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected are not to restrictive, according to The Hill. The Gallup Poll also found that fifty percent of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong, and another poll out of Harvard University found that only six percent of Americans think abortions should be legal “up until the birth of the child,” with only eight percent stating that they should be permitted up to the third trimester. The Harvard University poll also found that a majority of Americans want the egregious Roe v. Wade case revisited by the Supreme Court. Last year 207 members of Congress urged the Supreme Court to revisit the Roe v. Wade decision.
