Nance: “How ironic that at the time of two high-profile milestones for abortion advocates — Roe v. Wade’s 40th Anniversary and President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration — the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, acknowledges that the whole pro-choice movement has failed, to the point they refuse to use the word ‘pro-choice’ any longer.”
Washington D.C. — As we mark the second inauguration of the most pro-abortion president in U.S. History, Concerned Women for America (CWA) President and CEO Penny Nance comments on recent abortion milestones including:
President Obama is sworn in as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history The nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, acknowledges pro-choice language is not working and launches more “nuanced” rhetoric. The U.S. recognizes the 40th Anniversary of the ill-advised abortion legislation, Roe v. Wade
Statement from Penny Young Nance, President and Chief Executive Officer of Concerned Women for America:
“How ironic that at the time of two high-profile milestones for abortion advocates — Roe v. Wade’s 40th Anniversary and President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration — the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, acknowledges that the whole pro-choice movement has failed, to the point they refuse to use the word ‘pro-choice’ any longer. As they try a brand-new strategy in hopes of shoring up their base and widening their appeal, it’s clear that the true war on women includes their deception. Increasingly, science and technology are revealing the truth of the pro-life message: Life begins at conception. In addition, the success and sophistication of the pro-life strategy has curtailed the domination of Roe v. Wade so that more and more states are enacting reasonable safeguards to protect the well-being of girls and women.”
Statement from Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, Ph.D., Senior Fellow of Concerned Women for America’s Beverly LaHaye Institute:
“At the point when abortion advocates should be riding high, their own leaders are criticizing the movement for being frivolous and lacking gravitas. Clearly, the abortion movement is facing a crisis. The truth about life in the womb is overcoming the distortions and myths of abortion rhetoric. Likewise, the harsh realities of the abortion industry are overshadowing the myths that the abortion activists promote about their concern for reproductive health for girls and women.”
