Abortions Drop 30% in North Carolina

Abortions Drop 30% in North Carolina

A new study by the Guttmacher Institute shows that abortions dropped by just over 30% this past July, after the state began enforcing its 12-week abortion.

"Based on the most recent CDC data, protecting unborn children at 12 weeks could potentially save 3,000 babies from abortions every year, not including reducing abortion tourism from other states that have legal protections for unborn children."

According to two recent polls, almost 2/3 of North Carolinians support protecting the unborn and the state's existing parental consent laws, reports Life News.

Caitlin Connors, southern regional director for SBA Pro-Life America, praised North Carolina lawmakers for reaching consensus to strengthen protections for women and children. She told LifeNews:

"The Care for Women, Children and Families Act is deeply pro-life and pro-woman and a major step forward for North Carolina. This bill would protect thousands of lives a year from brutal abortions at a point when unborn babies have beating hearts, recognizable faces and unique fingerprints forming, and the capacity to suffer, as well as stopping dangerous mail-order abortion pills and more. It demonstrates the legislature's serious commitment to giving women and families in North Carolina the support they need to thrive."

NC Values Coalition Executive Director Tami Fitzgerald told LifeNews:

"It is great news that the lives of more innocent unborn children are being saved and that the new law appears to be working to keep North Carolina from being a destination for abortion. With increased resources for pregnant women provided by the Care for Women, Children, and Families Act and increased funding to Pregnancy Care Centers, women have more support than ever and a safety-net of care to help them choose life."
