Headway in protecting the unborn from eugenics

21-week babyFamily Research Council (FRC) is celebrating legislation aimed at protecting preborn children from being victims of eugenics – aborted solely on the basis of sex, race or disability.

The Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Christian organization is commending the progress the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Acts (PRENDAs) have made so that the unborn are no longer used as a tool of eugenics by Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities.

Increasing protection and education

With 16 states now enacting some form of a PRENDA law, FRC released a new issue analysis on Wednesday titled, "Prenatal Nondiscrimination Acts: Why They Are Essential," to explain how the laws address the horrific use of abortion and eugenics in America – including which states have passed legislation protecting the unborn from being aborted because of their race, sex or disability. It also visits the challenges such laws have faced in court.

In addition to more than a dozen states already using PRENDA laws, many more are seeking to utilize this lifesaving legislation.

“[On Tuesday], the North Carolina House Health committee approved such a bill, H 453, and [the previous week], Arizona's Governor Ducey signed SB 1457 into law – banning abortion based on genetics,” FRC informed in a press release. “Recently, the federal U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit upheld Ohio's Down syndrome abortion ban.”

One of the authors of the issue brief, Katherine Beck Johnson – who serves as FRC’s Research Fellow for Legal and Policy Studies – commends the progress being made to save the lives of the innocent.

"We applaud states working to protect the most vulnerable through PRENDAs,” Johnson stated in the release. “These laws remind society that each and every child has inherent dignity. They end the atrocious act of targeting the littlest members of our society and put us one step closer to ending Roe v. Wade.”

Stopping Biden’s unprecedented attack on the unborn

With President Joe Biden making nearly 20 times the amount of taxpayer dollars available for abortion on his first 100 days in office than former President Barack Obama, she stressed how imperative it is that new laws in states are enacted to protect preborn children across America.

"Reality is quickly settling in that the Biden administration is the most pro-abortion administration in history,” Johnson continued. “However, it's greatly encouraging that we are seeing a wave of pro-life momentum on the state level in response to President Biden's radical abortion agenda.”

With many of the tens of millions of preborn babies being killed by reason of eugenics since the notorious U.S. Supreme Court decision nearly 50 years ago, the pro-life activist is encouraged to see that progress is being made to chip away at the authority and thinking behind the landmark case.

"These laws powerfully undercut the rationale for Roe v. Wade, as they hold promise to end the viability standard set forth in Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey,” Johnson concluded. “In May 2019, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a lengthy opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood, in which he cited abortion's eugenic roots and its continued eugenic potential. This opinion has emboldened even more states and lower courts to protect the unborn from discriminatory abortions."
