It really does seem as if every update on state legislation penned by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute is gloomier than all its predecessors

“This makes OK the first state to completely ban abortion since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision,” according to Guttmacher’s Elizabeth Nash, Lauren Cross, and Joerg Dreweke. Read the whole story.

Guttmacher’s latest gloomy report on state legislation cheers pro-lifers

By Dave Andrusko It really does seem as if every update on state legislation penned by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute is gloomier than all its predecessors. And “2022 State Legislative Sessions: Abortion Bans and Restrictions on Medication Abortion Dominate”—an update from March 16—certainly fills that bill. Oklahoma’s passage Wednesday of HB 4327, which protects the …

Why the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute says that “2022 is shaping up to be even more devastating for abortion rights and access” than 2021

By Dave Andrusko Two abortion laws, one in Mississippi, the other in Texas, have the abortion lobby and its defenders in panic-mode. Let’s remind ourselves why. Mississippi’s “Gestational Age Act,” heard by the Supreme Court on December 1, would protect unborn children beginning at the end of the 15th week. It is one model for …

Pro-abortion Guttmacher says 2022 “shaping up to be even more devastating for abortion rights and access”

By Dave Andrusko In addition to being the preeminent pro-abortion think-tank, the Guttmacher Institute’s primary assignment (besides feeding the Media Machine) would appear to be playing the role of Chicken Little. Take this lead from yesterday’s “2022 State Legislative Sessions: Abortion Bans and Restrictions on Medication Abortion Dominate”: In 2021, state legislatures set an alarming …

Pro-abortion Guttmacher says 2021 “the Worst Year for Abortion Rights in Almost Half a Century”

By Dave Andrusko If you want an uplifting experience, paradoxical as it may seem at first, read the latest summary of state legislation as compiled by the very pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. The headline tells all: “State Policy Trends 2021: The Worst Year for Abortion Rights in Almost Half a Century.” The “worst”?  “Buoyed by the …

Pro-abortion think-tank dismisses requirements that protect women

By Dave Andrusko Once upon a time (1968, to be exact), the Guttmacher Institute was housed inside Planned Parenthood. According to its official history, once renamed after a long-time PPFA president, it was “incorporated as an entirely independent nonprofit policy research institute with its own Board in 1977, but remained a special affiliate of PPFA.” …

A half century of justifying abortion: The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Today’s repost of a story that ran previously deals with the Abortion Movement’s primary think-tank: the Guttmacher Institute. Although written in 2019, I believe it’s very much re-reading. I’m amazed that I somehow missed it, but it was not until I read the Guttmacher Institute’s announcement of the selection of …

Pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute laments “2021 Is on Track to Become the Most Devastating Antiabortion State Legislative Session in Decades”

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. This appears in the July issue of National Right to Life News. Please be sure to read the entire edition. Clearly, the Guttmacher Institute, formerly a “special affiliate” for Planned Parenthood and now the highbrow apologist for the Abortion Industry, does not fear crying wolf. Once again (is there a …

Pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute laments “2021 Is on Track to Become the Most Devastating Antiabortion State Legislative Session in Decades”

By Dave Andrusko Clearly, the Guttmacher Institute, formerly a “special affiliate” for Planned Parenthood and now the highbrow apologist for the Abortion Industry, does not fear crying wolf. Once again (is there a pattern here?) we learn that as bad as 2020 was for pro-abortionists, 2021 is worse. For example, in April, the headline to …

Pro-abortion think tank fears 2021 represents “unprecedented threat to reproductive health care” (abortion)

By Dave Andrusko As the oldest and most media-recognized of the pro-abortion think tanks, the Guttmacher Institute checks off many boxes. Its pronouncements are given more creditability than they would if they came down on tablets from Mt. Sinai. Although wholly in the pockets of the Abortion Industry, its research is credentialed as “scholarship,” rather …

Truth be told, the abortion lobby, and its think tank, is wildly out of step with the American people

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. As part of our ongoing series of what appeared a year ago in NRL News Today, I offer this critique of the Guttmacher Institute which is as 100% as accurate today as it was in January 2020. If  there’s a better example of the pot calling the kettle black than …

The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute: 50 years and counting

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Today’s repost of a story that ran a year ago deals with the Abortion Movement’s primary think-tank: the Guttmacher Institute. It’s very much reading.
