Here’s why your help is so vitally needed …
Abortions may be increasing really soon.
With a few exceptions along the way, we’ve enjoyed nearly 30 years of declining abortion rates in America. Gospel-motivated voices of courage and compassion have even closed clinics. Speaking the truth in love—in congregations, communities, courthouses, statehouses, and our own houses—has cut the abortion rate to half its historic height. The work goes slowly, and it is often difficult. But we’re making a difference.
Now, though, the danger is rising.
Surgical abortions are going down, but chemical abortions are climbing. Although the total number of babies put to death inside their mothers is dwindling, medication abortions now make up the majority of abortions before ten weeks’ gestation. The “abortion pill” is breaching many of the barriers that keep abortionists’ instruments at bay.
Several states have also begun offering “tele-med abortions.” A pregnant woman can consult with an abortionist over videoconference from miles and hours away. A remote-controlled drawer then dispenses her the lethal tablets. Last year, a generic formulation reached the market, and more than seventy-five websites are now selling the toxic tablets—internationally and illegally—without any prescription necessary. The FDA has strongly warned against ordering these drugs online, and no agency can even guarantee these imported substances are genuine.
