The U.S. abortion rate falls to lowest level since Roe v. Wade

A report by the Guttmacher Institute released Wednesday outlines dramatic changes in the abortion landscape between 2011 and 2017. The U.S. abortion rate has again hit an all-time low. States passed an unprecedented wave of 400 bills imposing restrictions on the procedure, and medical abortions, which involve taking pills rather than undergoing a surgical procedure, became widely available.

The 48-page research document, used by policymakers and activists on both sides of the debate, provides detailed information by state and region about how American women access abortion. https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2019/09/18/us-abortion-rate-falls-lowest-level-since-roe-v-wade/

The PACT Act would make it easier to prosecute those involved in the gruesome killing of animals. But Wait A moment, What about gruesome killing Of Baby’s That Is Roe V Wade?

“Most people are shocked to know that the U.S. does not have a federal animal cruelty law,” Animal Wellness Foundation Director of Federal Affairs Holly Gann said in an October press release.

The bill was first introduced in January by Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla.,and Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., to criminalize certain acts of animal cruelty that were not included in the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act, which was signed into law in 2010.

It aims to close a loophole in the 2010 law, which only punished abuse in videos. That law was spurred by “crush” videos, which often showed small creatures being stomped under a woman’s shoe, the Washington Post reported

“The torture of innocent animals is abhorrent and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” Buchanan said in a statement before the signing ceremony, according to the paper. “Signing this bill into law is a significant milestone for pet owners and animal lovers across the country.”
