Since the overturn of Roe, as many as 89,000 lives have been saved.

by | Jan 18, 2024

As we begin the new year, I want to stop and say thank you for all your support and for never giving up in the fight for life. Thanks to you, pro-life laws have saved as many as 89,000 lives since the US Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, and we are positioned to save even more lives in 2024. We faced numerous difficulties over the last year, but together we can and will face whatever 2024 throws our way.

Every presidential and even mid-term election year, we always hear that “this will be the most important election of our lifetime” and while there have been historical elections along the way (1996, 2000, 2016), I do believe that statement to be true leading into 2024. For countless preborn children and their mothers, the election before us could determine if they are able to blow out their first birthday candles or not. Lives will truly be at stake, as well as our country, as voters decide on issues and candidates up and down the ballot.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court rightfully overturned Roe v. Wade, the abortion industry, and the Biden Administration continues their campaign against pro-lifers. As with any struggle, our cause faces legitimate challenges (fundraising, ballot initiatives and the liberal media, among others). Here at National Right to Life, along with our network of state affiliates and allies, we stand ready to meet every challenge before us head on with your help.

To this end, winning hearts and minds is where we must put our focus.

By simply scrolling through a newsfeed or flipping through the channels at night, it is easy to recognize that many Americans do not see content that points to the humanity of preborn children and protecting their mothers. They don’t know that a baby’s heart begins beating within weeks of conception. They don’t know that the preborn child has detectable brain waves at just six weeks.

But every day, more Americans are realizing the truth…thanks to you, National Right to Life, and our nationwide network of state affiliates and local chapters.

For as long as we’ve been educating America that abortion stops a beating heart, National Right to Life has been working with its state and local affiliates to pass hundreds of pro-life laws that have saved countless lives over the years.

How many Americans now know that unborn babies have a heartbeat as early as 21 days because of the attention given to heartbeat laws in states like Georgia and South Carolina?

How many Americans searched for photos of babies in utero at 15 weeks and saw a fully formed baby because of the debate and media coverage surrounding the Mississippi law that led to the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision?

How many Americans came to understand that Roe v. Wade allowed horrific procedures like partial-birth abortion and dismemberment abortions because of our model laws designed to put a stop to these horrific practices?

How many Americans realized just how extreme the pro-abortion agenda truly is (and how truly deadly Roe v. Wade’s legacy was) because they saw the abortion industry opposing other common sense pro-life legislation like women’s right to know laws?

But too many Americans still don’t know. And they don’t know the simple truth that every abortion stops the beating heart of a preborn baby.

And that means we cannot — and we will not — stop fighting for life.

Repeatedly, the mainstream media has tried to write off the pro-life movement for good. The Democrats and punditry, equipped with talking points from the abortion industry, continue to use scare tactics to mislead voters. Pro-abortion politicians, the abortion industry, and their cohorts think they know what’s best for America. They think they can “settle” the abortion debate for the last time in 2024 with their extremist policies.

But I remain resolved to keep standing in the gap, and I know you’re committed, too.

Americans need to know Democrats and the abortion industry for the extremists that they are. Americans need to know that every abortion kills a member of the human family.

And that’s why we need you now, more than ever.
