  • The National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers was March 10. From the various pro-choice sources I read, it seems like it was less celebrated than usual.
  • The Wichita Eagle interviewed one of the physicians who has signed up to provide abortions at the South Wind Women’s Center abortion clinic when it opens. South Wind is operating at the same location where George Tiller provided abortions in Wichita. The new physician says she’s never performed an elective abortion:

    She has been a board-certified OB/GYN for about 10 years but has never performed elective abortions. The doctor says abortion is probably not a choice she would make for herself.

    But she believes that women have the right to that option and she said she felt a calling to step up to provide that option. The doctor asked to not be named in this story…. The OB/GYN wants to remain anonymous for as long as she can.

  • Pro-Life Action League has filed a formal complaint demanding an investigation into the death of 24-year-old Tonya Reaves at Chicago Planned Parenthood clinic:

    While normally, such violations of professional medical standards would be reported to the Illinois Department of Public Health, all Illinois Planned Parenthood facilities are unlicensed. As a result, any investigation relating to sub-standard medical care on their part is entrusted to [the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation].

Ignoring 12 US abortion deaths to push “safe and legal” abortions in Ireland

I reported yesterday on the Centers for Disease Control’s newly released Abortion Surveillance – United States, 2009, which reported the lowest rate and ratio of abortion in the U.S. since 1974.

There was another statistic in the Abortion Surveillance:

In 2008, the most recent year for which data were available, 12 women were reported to have died as a result of complications from known legal induced abortions. No reported deaths were associated with known illegal induced abortions.

Twelve women that we know of died from “safe and legal” abortions in the U.S. in 2008. And as Americans United for Life’s Charmaine Yoest noted to LifeNews.com, “That number is double the deaths reported the previous year and it’s the highest since 1994.”

According to the CDC, there have been 403 legal abortion-related deaths in the U.S. since 1973 (and 56 illegal), an average of 10 a year.

So where is the outcry from feminists?

Why, they’re all busy pointing their unrighteously indignant fingers at Ireland, where elective abortions are illegal, alleging that the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar proves abortion should be legal there – so women won’t die? In fact, abortion is legal in Ireland to save the life of a mother. It is a lie to claim Halappanavar’s death would have been averted were elective abortions legal in Ireland.

  • Michael New gives his take on the media’s claim that contraceptive use was the primary contributor to the decrease in 2009 abortion rates. There is no evidence to suggest that contraceptive use increased that year – however, New points out that it was the first year that a majority of Americans identified themselves as pro-life.

  • Moral Outcry wonders why no one raised the issue of the enormous costs of abortion in the first Presidential Debate of 2012:

    As a classroom teacher for many years who made anywhere from $27,500 to $40,000, (so let’s average that to $33,750, which is actually very low for a teacher average nationwide, but not too far from starting salaries) I’d like to propose that if we cut Planned Parenthoodfunding for a year we could pay a year’s starting salary to 10,761 new teachers.

  • Pro-Life Action League reports on the audacity of one abortion clinic: After being fined $36K for violations related to the death of a woman and their first inspection in 15 years, the clinic changed its name and location to avoid the fine.
