Abortion Industry worries as it feels the ground shifting beneath its feet

You could figuratively hear teeth grinding among the pro-abortion set when pro-life President Donald Trump told a massive crowd assembled at the March for Life on Friday, “The life movement is led by strong women.”

But when the President added, “Today, millions of extraordinary women across America are using the power of their votes to fight for the right, and all of their rights, as given in the Declaration of Independence — it’s the right to life. To all the women here today: Your devotion and your leadership uplifts our entire nation, and we thank you for that,” no doubt it was too, too much for the Planned Parenthoods and NARALs.


Simply because they understood that the President was undermining another media-created monopoly—the nonsensical argument that the “right” to take the lives of unborn children is strictly a “woman’s issue” and, further, that “women” are monolithically pro-abortion. 

Thanks to your work and the President’s use of the “bully pulpit,” this absurd distortion continues to fall by the wayside.

But that particularly mythology is only one of the monopolies formerly enjoyed by the enemies of life that is beginning to crumble. Not without tremendous resistance from pro-abortionists, mind you, but crumbling nonetheless.  

For example. While I would never underestimate the power exercised by the three major networks and newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post, they no longer have free rein to control the narrative.

The hundreds of thousands who come daily to NRLC’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and who read NRL News Today are examples of how citizens are breaking through the crushing pro-abortion media conformity to hear a countervailing pro-life voice.  Moreover, every time you retweet one of our postings to your social media contacts, the impact of the message is often multiplied a hundred fold.

How about this? Beyond a blind acceptance of the fanciful notion that women are an undifferentiated mass who are hard-core pro-abortion, what could be more useful to the Abortion Industry than the slur that pro-lifers are indifferent to women and girls facing untimely pregnancies?

This is so untrue I’m not sure even Planned Parenthood believes it. How about PPFA itself? When it comes to providing much of anything to women other than death to their babies, PPFA is heading in reverse.

While they perform 40.1% of all abortions, the number of cancer screenings and prevention services they provide has fallen every year since at least 2005.

In that year, Planned Parenthood performed 2,011,637 such services. But by 2018, the number had cratered–down to 566,186 in 2018– a whopping fall of more than 71.8% in just 14 years! 

“And those are just simple things such Pap smears and manual breast exams,” to quote Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon, NRLC Director of Education & Research. “Despite what you may have heard, Planned Parenthood does not and has never provided mammograms.”

Meanwhile Pregnancy Help Centers are multiplying all over the nation and indeed the world. In addition to all the services that these women-helping centers provide to abortion-vulnerable women,  Heartbeat International manages the Abortion Pill Rescue Network which provides women who’ve started a chemically-induced abortion and changed their minds with a second chance for their babies. 

There are other fissures in the foundation of the Abortion Industry and its cohorts in the major media and much of academia, which we have previously discussed and will again.

Again, thank you Mr. President. You were and are a pro-life champion.
