Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry, of course, see 60,000 lives saved as 60,000 lost opportunities for profit. Their allies in the activist left are doing their best to portray post-Roe America as a patriarchal hell-scape….

And pro-life activists must sustain their efforts to transform our culture from the bottom up….
