    This was the best news I’ve heard all week. While I empathize with the pain some feel for the restrictions promoted with this ban, I agree that these unborn children are lives that are being destroyed by abortion. Even without the Guttmacher data on the unreported numbers of abortions in the United States, according to the CDC the United States kills more unborn children than either heart disease or cancer, making abortion the true leading cause of death in the United States. So glad if this lets more babies live!
