Below is an image provided by The Human Rights and Scientific Honesty Initiative at the University of Virginia that cites dramatic a drop in abortions in Virginia since the adoption of the ultrasound law — which is probably why Senator Mamie Locke (D-2, Hampton) asked the Senate to do this a couple of weeks ago, so that Virginia’s abortion centers could resume operating in secrecy and mischief. Even more encouraging is that while the drop from 2011 to 2012 is significant and encouraging, the law was only in effect for half the that year. It means the 2013 statistics should be even better and more encouraging.
Of course, the abortion industry will point to other factors, but there were no new variables in play during the time in question, and none of the pro-abortion side’s tried-and-failed “solutions” to prevent pregnancies would have such an immediate affect. The drop from 2010 to 2011 was good, but nothing like the subsequent differential. We can’t wait to see what the 2013 statistics show.
Coincidence? Probably not. The numbers tell the story and that’s why the pro-abortion side hates the ultrasound law.
