USA TODAY trumpeted the good news about abortion with a big front-page headline, proclaiming: ABORTION RATE AT ITS LOWEST SINCE ROE. New figures from the Allen Guttmacher Institute show that the number of abortions continued to trend sharply downward—representing just half the number tabulated in 1990, despite population growth of some 80 million!

Yes, this reflects more women using birth control effectively, but it also reveals the influence of the pro-life movement in its efforts to discourage abortion and to save as many babies as possible.

Whatever your political or religious affiliation, nearly everybody acknowledges that a sharp decline in abortions is great news. So why do Democrats persist in pushing policies to encourage MORE abortions—including taxpayer funding? That question exposes the lack of logic in what has become the increasingly strident, pro-abortion position of the American left.
