America’s Abortion Laws vs the Rest of the World

Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case is about a Mississippi law that effectively bans abortion after 15 weeks. Abortion advocates claim this law and others like it assault the fundamental rights of women and “force them to have babies.”

Last week, the French National Assembly adopted a bill extending the abortion limit from 12 to 14 weeks in that country.  Most European countries restrict abortion to the first trimester, but we keep hearing that a 15-week ban would effectively keep women from full participation in society? 

The fact is, the US has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the world—laws that place us alongside countries like China and North Korea. Eight states allow abortion up to the moment of birth!.

When the hysterics start, it’s important to know the truth. America’s current abortion laws are what’s extreme, not the restrictions being proposed.
