Pro-lifers have new life in abortion debate

Jim ROSSMay 28, 2019

Isaac Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

People immersed in the abortion debate have found that to be true this year. It started with a standing ovation in the New York Senate in January when lawmakers passed that state’s Reproductive Health Act, which basically legalizes abortion up to about the time of a child’s birth.

You can argue over what exactly the law says, but it would be hard to argue that it and the standing ovation didn’t give pro-life people the energy to take more advantage of the political situation in Washington, D.C., and state capitols. And that even goes back to the personality of President Donald Trump.
