With the Supreme Court likely to overturn Roe v. Wade and the day finally arriving that states can legally protect babies from abortion, abortion activists are screaming that pro-life Americans want to criminalize women who have abortions.
But that’s not going to happen.
Just like when a baby is killed after birth, when a baby is killed before birth someone has to be held criminally accountable for killing the baby. Why not the mother?
As leaders of 70 pro-life groups explain, the mother is often a second victim in aboritons. “Safe, legal” abortions often kill or injure women. Many women feel pressured or coerced into having an abortion, studies show. In other cases young women are not properly taught how their developing child is really a human being, a unique baby with a right to life rather than a clump of cells.
And the abortion industry lies to women every day about the humanity of their unborn child and the risks of and alternatives to abortion as they try to sell as many abortions as possible.
So who should be held accountable? The answer is the abortionist — the one killing the baby in the first place. And if abortionists are held criminally liable for the babies they illegally kill under an abortion ban (and abortion pill sellers are held criminally liable for selling dangerous abortion drugs) then the supply of abortions ends.
This was the focus in abortion bans before Roe — which is why women were never sent to prison for having illegal abortions, despite false pro-abortion claims to the contrary.

That’s why dozens of pro-life groups across America today are banding together to say they will oppose potential abortion bans that criminalize women. They say they will focus on passing pro-life laws making abortions illegal that focus on abortionists and abortion pill sellers.
