American Family Association: U.S. Has the Most Pro-Abortion President in History
41 Years After Roe v. Wade, It’s Time to Extend Civil Rights to the Tiniest of Americans

As the country reflects on 41 years since the landmark Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the U.S., the one-million-constituent-strong American Family Association says the four-decades-old law needs to be revisited, and Americans’ votes must speak up for those who can’t. 

“We have the most pro-abortion president in the history of the United States,” said Tim Wildmon, President of American Family Association. “It’s a sad time in our culture when our leaders won’t stand up for the helpless babies who will never have the chance to take their first breath, or cry, play, run, learn and grow into adults who would contribute to society. Furthermore, the damage extends far beyond these little lives, as mothers, fathers and families are scarred forever by abortion.” 

According to, a leading news agency on right-to-life issues, more than 56 million unborn babies have died as a result of the devastating 1973 court decision—1.2 million babies annually or one abortion every 26 seconds. 

“The time to extend civil rights to the tiniest Americans is long overdue,” Wildmon continued. “We must elect pro-life senators in this extremely important mid-term election year, as well as a pro-life president in 2016. Millions more American people are pro-life today  this generation is more pro-life than the one preceding it – thanks to ultrasound technology and the ability to see an unborn child in the womb. It is imperative that life issues be at the top of our legislators’ lists for issues that affect our nation. Ending abortion must be given the utmost consideration at voting time, and we must send pro-life lawmakers to Washington.”
