U.S. Capitol 3With abortion-supporting Democrats overseeing the U.S. House, a national pro-life group is looking at state legislatures and the courts to protect life.

National Right to Life Committee is not looking to Congress to pass any pro-life legislation in the near future, says president Carol Tobias.

"Our success is definitely going to occur more in the states," she advises. "With Nancy Pelosi in charge of the House of Representatives, no pro-life legislation is going to get through Congress and to the President's desk."

Tobias contends the long-term advantage for the movement will be in the courts, the same court system used by abortion supporters to block bills passed in the states. With more constitutionalist judges appointed to the courts under President Trump, the pro-aborts might not find as many go-to judges to halt the laws, she says. 

Meanwhle, Tobias and National Right to Life Committee have issued a 6th annual report, "The State of Abortion in the United States." It updates the public on state laws and federal laws, court challenges, and the ongoing fight to defund Planned Parenthood. 

The report estimates that nearly 61 million preborn children have been killed since the 1973 Roe v Wade decision.
