National Right to Life produces great quantities of invaluable materials for everyone from someone who happens across our webpage to the most dedicated pro-life veteran who consumes every item. Among the best, and great for all audiences, is NRLC annual The State of Abortion in the United States.

Let me explain why the 9th annual report really is must reading.

To be sure, the daily National Right to Life News Today and the monthly NRL News provide important updates on current events—and if you are not a subscriber, please take 30 seconds out and sign up here.

However, in 76 jam-packed pages, The State of Abortion in the United States brings together a wide variety of topics written about in considerable depth, found nowhere else in one place.

The report begins with an Introduction by NRL President Carol Tobias and ends with a summary of the presidential records on abortion going back to Ronald Reagan. In between, you’ll find an explanation of the number of abortions in the  United States drawn  from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC); The Post-Roe Landscape; The Hyde Amendment: Background & History; The Equal Rights Amendment: An In-Depth Special Report; Federal Policy & Abortion; State Laws & Abortion; and an invaluable Synopsis of Supreme Court Cases.

As Tobias points out, “This ninth annual The State of Abortion in the United States is not just a snapshot of where we are as the nation observes the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton , but also a  blueprint for how we move forward to build a culture that values life and respects mothers and their children.”

Of particular interest is what might be the fallout from the Supreme Court decisions in Texas’ “Heartbeat Law” and Mississippi’s “Gestational Age Act.” The Abortion Industry has been aided immeasurable by numerous public opinion polls that purport to find that a majority of Americans oppose the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade

“These polls have helped pro-abortion organizations continue unabated with their decades-long public relations campaign that Roe v. Wade is somehow sacrosanct,” the report explains.  “However, according to a poll conducted for Reuters/Ipsos December 13-17, 2021, more than two-thirds of Americans don’t realize what would happen if Roe were overturned.”

Over the next two days, we’ll examine The State of Abortion in the United States in greater depth. Do yourself a favor and begin reading this in-depth report.
