Despite being a Red state, Montana has tipped over on abortion for months and failed to pass pro-life legislation in Midterms 2022. But pro-life activist Lila Rose believes residents “choose pro-life safeguards when given access to the pro-life message.”
A Montana judge recently extended access to abortions to minors by stopping a law that required parental consent for people under 16 to have an abortion.
“Pro-abortion forces are ramping up in Montana, with a judge even mandating that young girls can have abortions without parental consent,” said Rose, president of Live Action. “This is an incredibly destructive policy that opens the door to rampant human trafficking and puts children of all ages at great risk.”
Montana voters in November rejected the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which would have required medical professionals to save a child born alive after a failed abortion attempt. Although the measure contained no abortion bans, it failed by around 20,000 votes, with 53% voting against and 47% voting in favor of passing it.

Rose believes Montana residents would not have voted against the pro-life ballot measure had they been properly informed of its purpose.
“Americans, including my friends in the great state of Montana, choose pro-life safeguards when given access to the pro-life message. The pro-life page was issued and out-communicated during the 2022 Midterms in Montana. Because of this loss, Montana children are not protected from the brutal violence of abortion, even up to the moment of birth and beyond,” Rose told Fox News Digital.

The Montana House recently introduced the Infant Safety and Care Act, a similar bill to the November election, to protect liveborn infants after failed abortions.
HB 575 was also introduced as legislation to “prohibit the abortion of an unborn viable child except as necessary to preserve the life of the mother” and to clarify the definition of fetal viability as the point at which the fetus can survive outside the uterus.

Republican lawmakers on the State House Judiciary Committee also made progress HB 721, which aims to ban abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy and “prohibit abortion procedures by dismemberment”.
