Mixed messaging much? Planned Parenthood claims 20 million women want the same 20-wk abortions Guttmacher calls “very rare”

The abortion lobby isn’t quite sure how to smear those 20-week abortion bans that are sweeping the country.

So on one hand you’ll see Planned Parenthood claim 20 million women are being negatively impacted by bans on abortions past 20 weeks.

And on the other you’ll see Guttmacher claim these same abortions are “very rare”:

[L]ater abortions are very rare: In 2011, the most recent year for which there is sound data, only about 13,000 women terminated their pregnancies after 20 weeks, out of a total of about 1.06 million abortions.

I wouldn’t call 35.6 late-term abortions a day – or 1.5 an hour, every hour of the year – “very rare.”

But it’s exaggerating on on exaggerated scale to claim 20 million American women want them but can’t get them.

Which is it, abortion people?

There’s also Planned Parenthood’s assertion in its tweet that a ban on abortions past 20 weeks is a “serious attack on women’s health” (just another variation of the “war on women” meme, I note as an aside).

Actually, it’s quite the contrary. The risk of maternal mortality skyrockets when abortions are committed after 20 weeks (click to enlarge)…

Even when they try to avoid discussing the fetal victims of late-term abortions, they still fail on promoting them as a perk for women.
