Safe Haven Laws: An Invitation to Life

In 1999 Texas became the first U.S. state to pass an infant Safe Haven law. Today, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have enacted variations of the law.

Abortion Jurisprudence Primer

This case, known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, presents a direct challenge to the Supreme Court’s governing precedent under Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey which hold that States may not ban pre-viability abortions.

Lies, Damn Lies, and the Women’s Health Protection Act

The “Women’s Health Protection Act” (WHPA) has been circulating in Congress since 2013. That is the year Planned Parenthood announced it was moving away from the slogan “pro-choice.”

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.

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.

Legislative and Litigation Overview of 20-Week Abortion Laws

Since January 2010, twenty-three states have enacted statutes prohibiting abortion at 20 weeks of pregnancy. All but one of these laws make at least some explicit reference to fetal pain in either the legislative title, legislative findings, statement of legislative purpose or intent, or some combination of these elements. Evidence shows that unborn children can feel pain by 20 weeks, or five months, of pregnancy and even earlier.

The ACOG Should Reconsider Fetal Pain

Can a fetus feel something like pain before viability, perhaps even by 15 weeks’ gestation? The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) says no, but increasing evidence suggests that the answer is yes.

If it is a Baby, Is it a Person?

The CNN headline touted, “The world’s most premature baby has celebrated his first birthday after beating 0% odds of surviving.”[1] The baby is Richard Scott William Hutchinson and he was born at 21 weeks and 2 days. In the article’s accompanying picture, he still wears a nasal cannula but the device fails to obstruct his view of his birthday cake or the clear joy expressed on his happy, round face.
