Overturning ‘Roe’ Stopped 99% of Abortions in Texas

'We still have work to do to stop illegal abortions, especially pills trafficked over the border & online, but this shows life-saving progress...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Abortions have decreased by nearly 99% in Texas since the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Fox News reported.

Only three abortions—all which were deemed medically necessary—were performed in the state in August 2022, according to data released by Texas’s Department of Health and Human Services.

That number declined from 2,596 abortions in June and 68 abortions in July. The information from September 2022 onward was not yet available at press time.

However, pro-life advocates said it is no time to rest on their laurels.

In a tweet celebrating the reduction, Texas Right wrote, “We still have work to do to stop illegal abortions, especially pills trafficked over the border & online, but this shows life-saving progress.”

Texas was the first state in the nation to pass a heartbeat bill after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Breitbart News reported.

The subsequent drop in abortions contradicted the left-wing media narrative that abortion bans do not reduce the number of abortions.

For example, NBC News published an article in July claiming that “Abortion rates don’t drop when the procedure is outlawed. But it does make it more dangerous.”

Using information from a radical pro-abortion activist group, the Guttmacher Institute, the article claimed abortion prohibitions might even increase the number of babies killed.

“The data shows that abortion rates are roughly the same in countries where abortion is broadly legal and in countries where it isn’t,” it said. “Abortion rates are actually four times higher in low-income countries where abortion is prohibited than in high-income countries where it is broadly legal.”
