ProLife Success Stories around America

As a nation we are still suffering from the effects of Roe vs Wade 32 years later, but many states are having their own success stories in helping stop "abortion as birth control".


31 states have bans against "partial-birth" abortion: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Of these bans, only 13 are actually in effect, largely due to individual court orders that have blocked enforcement in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

29 states require that women receive counseling prior to their abortion. Of these, the following 23 states mandate that women wait a specified amount of time (usually 24 hours) between receiving counseling and obtaining an abortion. Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Only five states require abortion counseling to be done in person: Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Utah, and Wisconsin. The remaining states which require counseling but not a waiting period are: Alaska, California, Connecticut, Maine, Nevada, and Rhode Island.

Though there are many success stories, we have to keep the pressure on!. We have to speak loudly to our representatives until Roe vs Wade is overturned and abortion is no longer legal in the United States of America.
