Over 30,000 Babies Were Saved This Year
With Roe v. Wade out of the way, over 30,000 babies were saved in the first 6 months of 2023. Hallelujah!
From Breitbart. Approximately 32,000 babies in the U.S. were born this year that may have otherwise been aborted, according to a study from the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA).
The study was conducted after the fall of Roe v. Wade last summer — a 1973 Supreme Court decision that had invented the “right” to abortion. The purpose of the study was to figure out how post-Roe abortion bans are affecting fertility, with researchers using provisional state resident birth counts to estimate how births are changing in states that have outlawed abortion relative to pro-abortion states.
“Our primary analysis indicates that in the first six months of 2023, births rose by an average of 2.3 percent in states enforcing total abortion bans compared to a control group of states where abortion rights remained protected, amounting to approximately 32,000 additional annual births resulting from abortion bans,” according to the study. …
The study found the effects on abortion stats were “especially large” for women ages 20 to 24 and Hispanic women, with birth rates estimated to have increased 3.3 percent and 4.7 percent respectively.
“The estimated increases were larger in states such as Mississippi (4.4 percent) and Texas (5.1 percent), where the geography of bans renders interstate travel more costly,” the study states. …
The study comes after reports from pro-abortion organizations that abortions have increased since the Supreme Court overturned Roe, with women traveling to neighboring pro-abortion states or ordering abortion pills online. The IZA study notes that estimates of “surging abortion volumes” in states bordering states with strong pro-life laws “suggests that travel is indeed occurring.” …
