Does Banning Abortions After 15 Weeks Make Any Sense?

Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act—banning almost all abortions after 15 weeks’ gestation—raises the question: “Why 15 weeks?”[1] A person with pro-life convictions could reason that an abortion at six weeks’ gestation ends the life of a child just as surely as an abortion at 15 weeks, or from the moment of fertilization. Someone who supports abortion might argue that Roe v. Wade established a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy up until birth—under Doe v. Bolton’s “health” exception—if the mother is distressed due to the inconvenient timing or other circumstances of her pregnancy.[2] And yet the choices, risks, and long-term consequences faced by a woman with an unplanned pregnancy differ significantly in the first trimester of pregnancy compared to those in the mid- and late trimesters. These very real and serious consequences seemingly never make it into the national discussion of abortion, to the detriment of the women who bear these burdens.

Health Risk: Alaska DHSS Data Reveals Dramatic Increase in Risky Abortion Method

The most recent Alaska Department of Health and Social Services abortion data shows a dramatic increase in the number of women using potentially dangerous abortion drugs, which according to multiple peer-reviewed studies pose higher rates of complications.

Abortion Reporting: Alaska (2020)

There were 1,206 abortions reported in Alaska in 2020, down five percent from the previous year and the lowest annual total since Alaska began publishing abortion statistics in 2003. At the same time, chemical abortions jumped by 46 percent, an increase of 142 chemical abortions from the previous year.

Abortion Pill Reversal: A Record of Safety and Efficacy

Chemical abortions have been increasing over recent years to now account for 44 percent of reported abortions in the United States in 2019.[1] These percentages have grown consistently from 6% in 2001 and will likely rise even faster as abortion providers pressure the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and lawmakers to allow them to sell chemical abortions to women online, without a single, in-person visit to a doctor to verify the gestational age or location of the baby.

Abortion Reporting: Louisiana (2019)

Louisiana’s 2019 abortion report was published online in March 2021. The report shows that abortions increased slightly from 2018.

Women’s Health Protection Act: An Analysis

If the “Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021” were to become law, it would impose abortion on demand in all 50 states by invalidating current state laws and undermining the ability of states to pass limits on abortion. These state laws which were enacted by duly elected state officials accountable to citizens of their state reflect the view of a majority of Americans who support limitations on abortion. The “Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021,” more accurately referred to as the “Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act,” represents a federal takeover of abortion policy by nullifying the will of citizens and state legislatures. The first version of the Women’s Health Protection Act was introduced in 2013. It has been introduced in subsequent Congresses and has failed to advance each time.

Abortion Reporting: Georgia (2020)

Georgia released its 2020 abortion statistics in its online vital statistics database in July 2021. Georgia resident abortions increased from the previous year.
