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.

Catholic blogger: Catholics, don’t waste money on pro-life efforts

It ought to be clear by now that Western culture is insufficiently healthy to sustain a political solution to abortion. Therefore, it is counter-productive to pour our resources into the effort to achieve such a solution. We must use our resources far more wisely than that. ~ Dr. Jeff Mirus (pictured) explaining the futility of […]

  • 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.

Potty mouth Planned Parenthood delivery guy

It is understandable that people associated with abortion might be unpleasant, as was this delivery person for General Air, in Denver, Colorado, who dropped off an oxygen cylinder at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains on October 24 and did not think very kindly of the pro-life activists standing outside. WARNING: Vulgar language… I wonder […]

Pro-life video of the day: Baby yawns in utero

by Hans Johnson Babies not only hiccup, swallow, stretch, and suck their thumbs in the womb, they yawn. While there is much disagreement on why we yawn, it is generally thought to be for the obvious reason of getting an extra burst of oxygen. British researchers are studying 4D scans of pre-birth babies at 24-36 […]

CDC: 2009 abortion rate and ratio the lowest ever

The Centers for Disease Control released its annual Abortion Surveillance – United States, 2009 report last week.

First came the encouraging news that the number of abortions dropped in 2009 by 5% from 2008, to 784,507, “representing the largest single year decrease for the entire period of analysis,” this past decade.

While the death toll was still a staggering three-quarters of a million babies, nevertheless this was the lowest number of abortions reported since the CDC began using its current tracking model in 2000 (which excludes nonreporting states Alaska, California, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New Hampshire, and West Virginia), the number on the right.

Abortion and GOP politics: “Talk about it more, not less – but better”

The debate over contraception that occupied so much campaign conversation wasn’t started by Rick Santorum and Catholic bishops. Theirs was a response to President Obama’s mandate essentially requiring Catholic organizations to ignore their convictions and provide insurance coverage for birth control for their employees. Senate candidates Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock didn’t introduce the subjects […]
