According to a new report from the pro-abortion Society of Family Planning, over 32,000 babies’ lives have been saved since the Dobbs v. Jackson U.S. Supreme Court decision, which overruled 1973’s pro-abortion Roe v. Wade ruling.
“Since the Dobbs decision, compared to the average monthly number of abortions observed in the pre-Dobbs period, there were 32,260 cumulative fewer abortions from July to December,” wrote the group in the report.
CNN reported, “There were about 5,000 fewer legal abortions each month, on average, than there were in the months before the ruling – a drop of about 6%.”
“In the 13 states that enacted bans following the Supreme Court decision, abortions fell more than 95%, with just a few reported each month from July to December. But in the remaining set of states, the average number of abortions ticked up slightly. There were surges in some of those states, including Minnesota and Kansas, that suggest that individuals living in states with more restrictions may travel for care.”
The report notes that before Dobbs, abortion rates were “higher than previous years,” and the pro-life Supreme Court decision made a prolific impact on saving babies’ lives.
“Thus, the net overall declines in abortion incidence in the US after Dobbs are even more striking given that there were trends of increasing abortion rates just before Dobbs,” wrote the report’s authors.
However, since Dobbs, New Mexico saw an average of 232 more abortions in the state, according to the reports. This adds up to 2,784 more children in the womb killed in New Mexico annually, likely due to Democrats’ pushing of abortion tourism to get more out-of-state women to kill their children in the Land of Enchantment. Whole Woman’s Health, an Albuquerque-based abortion facility, recently told Axios it is mostly servicing Texas clients.
Abortion, up to birth, is legal in the state, with no protections afforded to mothers, babies, or medical professionals. Recent New Mexico legislation was passed in 2023 to harbor criminal abortionists from extradition to other states while banning localities in the state from passing pro-life ordinances.
The number of children being saved across the country is hopeful for those who value babies’ lives. However, a recent $10 million investment by Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to erect a massive new abortion mill on the state’s southern border with Texas and other new abortion outfits having starting “goals” of killing 75 children weekly, New Mexico’s abortion number is climbing.
