- Here’s a study which unsurprisingly finds that if a pro-abortion outfit like the Guttmacher Institute makes a bunch of guesstimates for how many abortions there are, they are often incredibly wrong:
We found significant overestimations of abortion figures in the Federal District of Mexico (up to 10-fold), where elective abortion has been legal since 2007. Significant overestimation of maternal and abortion-related mortality during the last 20 years in the entire Mexican country (up to 35%) was also found. Such overestimations are most likely due to the use of incomplete in-hospital records as well as subjective opinion surveys regarding induced abortion figures….Here’s a press release on the study which will likely not be reported at any of media outlets which so readily report the Guttmacher Institute’s guesswork.
- U.S. District Court Judge James Fox has ruled that North Carolina’s “Choose Life” license plate is unconstitutional:
“…the state’s offering of a Choose Life license plate in the absence of a pro-choice plate constitutes viewpoint discrimination in violation of the First Amendment,” wrote Fox in his ruling….
Republican Rep. Mitch Gillespie of McDowell County sponsored the bill and said he’ll encourage Attorney General Roy Cooper to appeal the decision.
“As long as I am in the General Assembly, my goal will be to get that passed,” he said Monday.
- A woman in India was allegedly raped by a doctor who then gave her abortion pills without telling her what they were:
The victim bled incessantly for close to a month after consuming the pills on September 4. She was rushed to state-run JJ Hospital from Nagpada police hospital for treatment by the police.“The MRI reports of the pelvis area suggested that the abortion was incomplete and that remnants of the dead foetus were still in the womb,” said a senior doctor from JJ Hospital.
