Amy O’Donnell of Texas Alliance for Life sees that as something to celebrate.

“We consider it a victory that pro-life laws are resulting in lives saved,” she tells AFN. “Those babies will grow up to be productive citizens of the United States, and we celebrate that 32,000 babies are alive today because we have laws to protect life across the country.”
Still, O’Donnell says the study perpetuates the lie that women need abortion access to compete academically, vocationally, athletically, or in other ways.
“That is mistaken,” she asserts. “In the last 30 years, when abortion rates have fallen dramatically, women’s progress has advanced dramatically. In reality, women don’t need abortion to advance in this country.”
Liberal media suggests pro-life laws are laws for forced pregnancies, but O’Donnell points out that most abortions are not sought in cases of rape. They are sought as a form of birth control after a consensual encounter.
