History of Supreme Court decisions, presidential records on abortion just part of NRLC’s new “The State of Abortion in the United States”

By Dave Andrusko

stateofabortion2016reThere is so much in the 51-page The State of Abortion in the United States it’s almost unfair to pick out sections to highlight from NRLC’s third annual report.

So far NRL News Today has provided an overview and a post that tackled public opinion polls and state legislation.

Today we’re going to look at a couple of sections we tended to overlook when we talked about the first two annual NRLC reports.

Each day our Movement brings on fresh troops, generally younger people. They have a broad-stroke knowledge that Presidents Obama and Clinton were/are pro-abortion and that President Reagan, President George H.W. Bush, and President George W. Bush were strongly pro-life. But what exactly are their records on life?

On pages 41-45 you’ll find a brilliant overview with many specific actions taken by these five presidents that either impeded the campaign to save unborn babies or advanced the cause.

Likewise, even those of us who have been in the Movement for decades may not remember many of the specific holdings of the major Supreme Court decisions on abortion. Beginning with the 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions and ending with the 2007 Gonzales v. Carhart decision upholding the federal ban on partial-birth abortions, the reader will find a superb overview of the principle holdings of each decision.

Please take a few minutes and go to www.nrlc.org/uploads/communications/stateofabortion2016.pdf. This is must reading!

More tomorrow.
