The mainstream media is spreading a false abortion narrative, but this group of college students is pushing back

As the battle over protecting life heats up, the corporate media is doing its best to aid the pro-abortion lobby.

And they have shown they are willing to spread any lie to promote abortion-on-demand.

Now the mainstream media is spreading a false abortion narrative, but this group of college students is pushing back.

The abortion apologists at the Planned Parenthood-founded Guttmacher Institute are claiming more than one million babies were aborted in 2023, an increase since the Supreme Court overturned Roe in 2021.

Making money from killing babies – and lying about it

Of course, you must consider the source of this information.

Because it comes from the very people making money from ending innocent life. 

As Students for Life of America (SFLA) posted, “To be clear, trusting the Guttmacher Institute on abortion is a lot like believing the Tobacco Institute about cigarettes. Consider the source.”

But that didn’t matter to the mainstream media, who has become the mouthpiece for the pro-abortion lobby.

According to CNN, “Abortions are on the rise in the United States, despite bans that have taken effect in more than a dozen states since the US Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision that revoked the federal right to abortion in June 2022.”

And CNN went on to just blindly report the numbers from Guttmacher, “There were more than 1 million abortions in the US in 2023, the highest rate in more than a decade and a 10% jump from 2020, according to a report released Tuesday by the Guttmacher Institute, a research and policy organization focused on sexual and reproductive health that supports abortion rights. The latest trends also suggest that medication abortion is a more common option than ever.” 

CNN went on to report some shocking numbers on chemical abortions.

“Medication abortion, also known as medical abortion, is a method by which someone ends their pregnancy by taking two pills – mifepristone and misoprostol – rather than having a surgical procedure.  

This option has become steadily more common over the two decades it’s been available, rising from less than 10% of all abortions in the US in 2001 to 53% in 2020 and 63% in 2023.” 

But there is one huge problem with all these numbers

However, as SFLA reported, “There’s one significant problem with the news – America doesn’t have a national reporting law on abortion.” 

And not only that, but some pro-abortion states like California don’t track any data at all. 

The only two organizations that even attempt to make sense of the abortion numbers (albeit from a decidedly pro-abortion slant) are the Guttmacher Institute and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

But the two use different methods and publish different figures on abortion in America. 

And as SFLA reports, “Something doesn’t add up with the Guttmacher Institute’s claims: according to reporting by Forbes, 32,000 “extra” babies were born in the United States per year since Roe v. Wade was reversed. And before Roe’s reversal in June 2022, abortion was legal in every State in America. Today, 16 states have protections for life after conception or heartbeat: abortion is heavily restricted after this point.”  

That means, unless all the women seeking abortions left one of the sixteen states for abortions in neighboring states, an argument often made by the pro-abortion lobby, this abortion increase is almost impossible to explain.

And that is especially true when fewer states than before welcome abortion, and births are trending up. 

According to Dr. Michael New, an assistant professor of practice at the Busch School of Business at the Catholic University of America and a senior associate scholar at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, it’s because “the data quality may not be the same as previous studies.”  

In his analysis published in National Review, New writes: “By Guttmacher’s own admission, the calculations for the Monthly Abortion Provision Survey come from ‘a slimmer portfolio of data’ and are designed to produce faster calculations on the incidence of abortion. Given that, the 2023 abortion estimates may not be as reliable as Guttmacher’s previous annual abortion estimates.” 

New also referenced studies that clearly show birth rates are up in the states with strong pro-life laws.
