Wave of popular pro-life legislation sweeping America

Below is my commentary published in the March 27 Washington Examiner:
Virginia joins other states passing pro-life legislation

Re: "Wave of anti-abortion bills advance in the states," March 24
A wave of popular pro-life legislation is sweeping across America. Bills have passed to enforce health and safety standards in abortion clinics (Virginia), ban late-term abortions (Kansas), address fetal pain (Idaho, Oklahoma and Alabama) and provide informed consent through sonograms (Florida).
Virginia will finally require abortion clinics to meet the same health and safety standards as similar surgical facilities that save patients rather than kill them. Abortion advocates vehemently protest that this would "entail higher costs and force several clinics to close," unwittingly conceding that they will tolerate health hazards in order to keep their cash-cow clinics open.
As evidence replaces propaganda and millions of postabortive women and men realize they have been deceived, public opinion in America has shifted dramatically to the pro-life side and reflects profound personal and cultural change, which can help turn the page to a new chapter of respect for all human life.
