(RightIsRight.co) – BREAKING NOW: When the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade earlier this year, many questioned whether the decision would have much or any impact on the number of abortions performed.
The answer to that question is becoming clearer by the day.
As Newsmax reports in “Abortions Dropped 97 Percent in Texas After Roe Reversal“:
“Abortions in Texas dropped by 97% in the month after the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade, according to preliminary data from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
“In July, just 68 abortions were performed in Texas, down from 2,596 in June. The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in late June when it ruled in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that there is no constitutional basis for the right to abortion.
“Abortions in Texas, which were already significantly decreased by the state’s 2021 fetal heartbeat law, effectively stopped in June amid uncertainty about the law.” [emphasis added]
And one expert weighed in on what happened.
“‘I think that part of that was the confusion afterward, but we’re also seeing that the law in Texas took effect, and when it did, Texas was seeing a significant drop off in the number of abortions that were being performed,’ Laura Echevarria, communications director and press secretary for the National Right to Life Committee, told the Washington Examiner.” [emphasis added]
At this point, there can be little doubt that the overturning of Row by the United States Supreme Court has dramatically reduced the number of abortions performed.
