Pro-Life Laws Protect Mom and Baby: Pregnant Women’s Lives are Protected in All States

In the 23 states with one or more strong abortion bans that were unenforceable before the decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, state officials are now either enforcing a ban or are working towards beginning enforcement. Each of these states permits abortion in those rare and heartbreaking circumstances when it is necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman.

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.

Mississippi’s 15-Week Gestational Limit on Abortion is Mainstream Compared to European Laws

In 2018, Mississippi passed the Gestational Age Act, limiting elective abortion to 15 weeks. Mississippi’s 15-week law was invalidated by the lower federal courts and will be considered by the United States Supreme Court during their next term, which begins in October 2021. A comparative analysis between Mississippi and European abortion laws finds gestational limits on elective abortion—terminations performed without restriction as to reason—prior to 15 weeks, and more often at 12 weeks, are common and the norm for the majority of European countries. This comparison found 47 out of 50 European countries analyzed in this report either do not allow elective abortion (8) or limit elective abortion to 15 weeks or earlier (39), whereas, other than Texas, no state in the U.S. limits elective abortion to 15 weeks.

New Study: Mississippi’s 15-Week Limit on Abortion in the ‘Mainstream’ of European Law

A comprehensive analysis of European abortion laws shows the overwhelming majority of European nations limit elective abortion prior to 15 weeks gestation.  This fall, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, concerning the constitutionality of limits on abortion prior to viability. The case was prompted by a Mississippi law that protects the life of the unborn starting at 15 weeks gestation.

Overview of U.S. Pro-Life Bills and Provisions Advanced and Laws Enacted from January to May 2021: Pro-Life Banner Year as States Continue to Reject the Radical Abortion Agenda

With the Biden administration reversing numerous life-affirming policies, it is clear there is an aggressive abortion agenda in Washington D.C. It is also clear the pro-abortion sentiment in the nation’s capital is not aligned with the views of Americans at the state level.
