Not to be outdone, pro-lifers press on

pro-life banner on highway overpass"Don't be discouraged." That's the message from the head of March for Life who says Americans are trending pro-life.

"People know that life is beautiful," says Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life. "They sense the truth about it, and money doesn't sort of buy what isn't real, true, and good."

For example, Mancini says that in 2018, pro-life groups collectively put something like $4.8 million toward independent spending and campaign contributions for the election. Pro-choice groups collectively spent over $50 million. It was even more disparate in 2016 for the presidential election.

"Another sort of staggering statistic is in Alabama," she continues. "The pro-life side was outspent by a 100-to-1 ratio, and yet all of that spending didn't deter the legislators [from passing pro-life measures this year]. So what we're seeing, even with all this money and this power, is that Americans are trending pro-life … in a really positive way."

Even young Americans, she says, are trending pro-life.

"When you break down the question, for example, 'Would you limit abortion more than it's been limited in the United States?' – eight out of ten Americans, for something like ten years strong, would limit abortions at most to the first three months of pregnancy, which is not the law of the land in the United States," Mancini adds.

"So Americans are trending towards life despite being outspent and despite Hollywood's endorsement of the abortion industry."

Mancini makes similar comments in an op-ed for Washington Examiner.
