Pro-Life Group Shares Public Education, Highlighting Abortion Death Toll

Mass education efforts are being rolled out by pro-life organizations. This comes in an attempt to convince the public, prior to the hearing of the Supreme Court regarding a case that could potentially change abortion. 

#2363campaign highlights the daily deaths caused by abortion

On Saturday, a rally was conducted by the group Live Action, highlighting the daily death toll caused by abortion. The movement called the #2363campaign is a multimillion-dollar endeavor that includes billboards, digital, radio, and TV ads all over the country.

It also has a particular emphasis in New York, Washington, D.C., and Jackson, Mississippi. 2,363 is a figure based on the estimate by Guttmacher of the 862,320 abortions in the United States back in 2017. 

Lila Rose, the Live Action president, stated it is heartbreaking to look at tragedy in the face. However, it is absolutely essential to confront evil.

Rose then narrated a graphic description of how 2,363 lives are killed through abortion. She said this can happen either by forcibly miscarrying the fetus or starving them with nutrients.

It can also happen by breaking them into pieces by suction and removing them from their mothers, tearing their limbs from their torso by the use of forceps while they are still alive. This comes before the skulls of the fetus are crushed or their hearts/heads are stabbed with lethal injection. 

According to the group, the ads will continue until the day of the oral arguments before the Supreme Court in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, challenging the 15-week abortion ban in Mississippi. Both sides are seeing this case as an opportunity to reverse the landmark decision of the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade.

On the other hand, the hot issue featured the attempts made by both parties to cultivate the debate. 

Pelosi called Mississippi’s ban on abortion “draconian” and “assault” on women’s freedoms

In a statement made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last month, she labeled the abortion ban in Mississippi “draconian.” Pelosi added it is one of the heartbreaking “assaults” against the freedom of women. 

Pelosi added that undermining or revisiting Roe v. Wade poses a clear threat to justice and equality in the country. She alleged the ban “particularly” aims at women of color and women in low-income communities. 

Meanwhile, the Women’s Health Protection Act was recently passed by Pelosi and other Democrat members of the House; this is an attempt to pre-empt the decision made by the Supreme Court, codifying Roe v. Wade.

Alexis McGill Johnson, the president of Planned Parenthood, stated the ability of a person to have access to reproductive healthcare should not be determined by their income or ZIP code.

McGill added the Women’s Health Protection Act championed by Pelosi and House Democrats would bring Americans one step closer to a country where everyone has “full control” of their futures and their bodies.
