Anti-abortion activists in America head into their annual March for Life rallies confident that the huge election gains their allies made will lead to tougher restrictions in many states on the broad abortion access established 38 years ago by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Opponents of abortion gained strength in Congress, among state governors and in many state legislatures, raising hopes among social conservatives for a broad surge of anti-abortion bills.
“We are seeing a cultural shift toward protecting life and rolling back the tide of unrestricted abortions, said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, in a statement ahead of Saturday’s anniversary of the 1973 ruling.
Yoest and her allies have particularly high hopes for three types of bills under consideration in several states:
–Measures modeled after a Nebraska law passed last year that outlaws abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, based on the assertion that fetuses can feel pain after that point. That’s a departure from the standards set by the Supreme Court decision Roe v Wade, which allow states to limit abortions when there’s a viable chance the fetus could survive outside the womb, generally between 22 and 24 weeks.
