My sister died after taking abortion pill Posted by anon on 23 Mar 2006 at 4:16 am medicalnewstoday.com
“My little sister died, age 24, after taking the abortion pill. She died March 8th at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, Co. I have submitted a report to FDA’s medwatch but do not know if her death has been included.
She took the second course of pills vaginally and died aproximately two days later of sepsis, specifically the anaerobic bacteria cited in this article according to the autopsy.
I don’t understand why there aren’t huge warning labels about fatality risks mandated for these drugs – the risk is much higher than for cigarettes or alcohol. If she had known about the other cases of death related to vaginally inserted misprostal she would not have risked it – she had a son to think about and she’d be here for all of us today. ..”

About 600,000 maternal deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth occur every year in the world, mostly in the developing world. 13% of these deaths are due to unsafe abortion. But almost all maternal deaths are preventable, simply by providing safe abortion; improving pre-natal care, nutrition, and contraceptive use; and preventing common obstetrical complications. ..”

“..Abortion is a very common and historical medical procedure that ends the pregnancy and experienced from ancient China to Rome. Although it is performed over 46 million times every year in all over the world regardless of laws against it, about 20 million of those are illegal. (Arthur, 1999, Parag. 2). Every two over five abortions are practiced in unsafe conditions and by untrained providers and about 78.000 women die, as a result of illegal and restricted laws of abortion in many countries. Furthermore, countless of women become infertile or injured caused by unsafe abortions or they are forced to raise their unwanted children. (Arthur, 1999, Parag. 3). Many of those children are abused, neglected or had to live in a dismal environment. About one-third of women who live in the countries that abortion is banned, victimized motherhood and born their unwanted children. In today’s modern world, it is unacceptable to force women to keep their pregnancy or compelling them to find unsafe or illegal abortions, because of religious, social or ethical issues. For example, in South America except Cuba over 4 million illegal and unsafe abortions are performed every year, The Latin America Considered as the most religious Roman Catholic Region of the world. Just in Brazil, over 250.000 women are hospitalized or died as a result of unsafe abortion. (Arthur, 1999, Parag. 7). ..”
Shivana Jorawar, NAPAWF: Lift the bans on abortion coverage for women using Medicaid benefits
Consider the Coat Hanger Rebecca J. Rosen Aug 23, 2012 .theatlantic.com
“….So despite the law, abortion persisted. Public policy exists in words, on the books, so to speak. But where it matters is where it is carried out: in city apartments, doctor’s offices, women’s-health clinics, and, proverbially, back alleys. To seriously consider the meaning of the hanger, or, less abstractly, the outcome of the Republican platform if realized, is to concern yourself with that reality, with the lives of women who had unwanted pregnancies during the century before Roe v. Wade.
That’s where the hanger comes in, because that’s what the hanger is meant to stand for: Unsafe back-alley abortions that left women dead. But is that an accurate picture of the period?..
Research confirms that the actual number of abortion deaths in the twenty-five years prior to 1973 averaged 250 a year, with a high of 388 in 1948.  In I966, before the first state legalized abortion, 120 mothers died from abortion.  By 1972 abortion was still illegal in 80 percent of the country, but the use of antibiotics had greatly reduced the risk. Hence, the number dropped to 39 maternal deaths from abortion that year.  Dr. Christopher Tietze, a prominent statistician associated with Planned Parenthood, maintained that these are accurate figures, with a margin of error no greater than 10 percent.  …”

Further, Rose said on Crossfire, “[a]bortion doesn’t un-rape a woman. An abortion just adds more violence on top of that first violence that she endured.””

The Best Pro-Life Arguments for Secular Audiences
By Rob Schwarzwalder Senior Vice-President frc.org
“..Some “Pro-Choice” Arguments
“Outlawing abortion will mean back-alley butchers and countless women dying.”
Your rejoinder may include several points, but you should always start here: Overturning Roe doesn’t make abortion illegal, it simply changes the venue of the question: …
You may want to concede the point that, even after limitations are established in the states, there will always be abortionists willing to break the law and exploit vulnerable women for financial gain. But because a destructive activity will not be completely eradicated is no reason to make or keep it legal (think of drug laws or laws against prostitution). No compassionate person wants a woman to suffer through the personal tragedy of abortion, whether legal or illegal. As Feminists for Life says, women deserve better than abortion. Establishing legal limits to the current “absolute right to abortion” will mean fewer abortions, and that is to the good of women, children, families, and society.
There are a number of points to make regarding the charge that countless women will die.
First, it is impossible to calculate the number of maternal deaths from abortion before Roe v. Wade because they were not reported, so any claim regarding the number of maternal deaths from illegal abortions is purely speculative. However, it is a fact that abortion industry insider Bernard Nathanson admitted to circulating false numbers. Dr. Nathanson co-founded NARAL (originally called the National Alliance to Repeal Abortion Laws and, today, NARAL Pro-Choice America) and was director of the Center for Reproductive and Sexual Health in New York City, at one time the largest abortion clinic in the western world. In 1979 Nathanson said:
How many deaths were we talking about when abortion was illegal? In NARAL we generally emphasized the drama of the individual case, not the mass statistics, but when we spoke of the latter it was always “5,000-10,000 deaths a year.” I confess that I knew the figures were totally false, and I suppose that others did too if they stopped to think of it. But in the ‘morality’ of our revolution it was a useful figure, widely accepted, so why go out of our way to correct it with honest statistics? The overriding concern was to get the laws eliminated, and anything within reason that had to be done was permissible.
Second, it is a fact that another abortion industry insider disputed the “back-alley butcher” notion in the decade before Roe v. Wade. In 1960 Dr. Mary Calderone, a former medical director for Planned Parenthood, estimated that 9 out of 10 illegal abortions were done by licensed doctors: “they are physicians, trained as such…Abortion, whether therapeutic or illegal, is in the main no longer dangerous, because it is being done well by physicians.” We don’t have to agree with Calderone that abortion is not dangerous to cite her statement that illegal abortions were done as well as legal ones. In fact, hundreds of women have died from abortion since Roe v. Wade according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and this is likely only a fraction of the actual number in light of the fact that several states (including, significantly, California) have failed to report abortion data for many years and in light of the latitude given to doctors in reporting causes of death (e.g., “hemorrhage” rather than “induced abortion.”)
Third, the experience of other countries shows that restricting abortion does not cause a rise in maternal deaths. Despite its tight abortion restrictions, Ireland has the lowest maternal mortality rate in the world, according to a study by several agencies at the United Nations. Malta also has substantial abortion limitations and yet has among the lowest maternal death rate world-wide, lower than the United States. Data compiled by Polish government agencies shows a marked decrease in maternal deaths once abortion was made illegal.
Summary: The Supreme Court created a virtually unlimited right to abortion, a policy with which most Americans disagree. In fact, our country is not divided down the middle on abortion, but most of America is substantially with us. As we continue to expose the truth about abortion law and practice, we will move closer to the day that abortion policy making is returned to the people….”
Pro-Life Answer to the Rape Question, studentsforlife.org
“..Rape and incest are horrific wrongs. A woman, violated in a sexual assault should be surrounded by love and support. If that assault results in pregnancy, aren’t there now two people affected by the assault? Two people in need of protection and care?
The perpetrator must be punished to the fullest extent of the law, but does the helpless child, who is guilty of no crime, deserve death? Is the violent act of abortion a good solution to the violent act of rape?
The emotional effects of rape on the woman must be addressed. Will her grief or memories of the rape disappear with her child she aborts? Aborting a child conceived through rape simply extends this pattern of violence and victim-hood. It does not “unrape” the woman, but it will most certainly increase her regret and misery.
Rape is an act of violence for which she bears no responsibility, the abortion is an act of violence for which she would be morally culpable. Abortion is not a healing or compassionate procedure for the mother or her child, and will not erase the rape….”
“UNWANTED” A Story About Choice
“…This is not to say that the human race may not reach a time in its history at which overpopulation becomes a problem so severe that it must significantly curtail its birthrate. At such a time it would be wise to try to persuade people either to willingly use contraceptive devices or to practice sexual discipline. If such a tactic does not work, then forced sterilization may be a viable—albeit desperate—option, since it does not entail the death of the unborn. In any event, if the unborn are fully human, abortion is not a solution to population problems even in the most dire of circumstances. Hence, the real question is whether or not the unborn are fully human.
Underlying this type of pro-choice argument is a fundamental confusion between the concept of “finding a solution” and the concept of “eliminating a problem.” For example, one can eliminate the problem of poverty by executing all poor people, but this would not really solve the problem, since it would directly conflict with a basic moral truth that human beings should not be gratuitously exterminated for the sake of easing economic tension. This “solution” would undermine the very moral sentiments that ground our compassion for poor people—namely, that they are humans of great worth and should be treated with dignity regardless of their predicament….”
Some Economic Consequences of Abortion
by Tim Shaughnessy | Jan 17, 2012 | The Faith | truthandcharity.net
“…Even if these economic facts were reversed, however, the morality of abortion would be unchanged. If abortion unambiguously led to less crime, greater economic growth, an increased autonomy and respect for women by men, etc., it is still the deliberate murder of an innocent unborn child. While we can point out secondary and tertiary economic, societal, or political problems associated with legal abortion in America, the primary moral problem remains and is sufficient itself to render abortion as always gravely wrong…

Former Satanist: “I Performed Satanic Rituals Inside Abortion Clinics” lepantoinstitute.org
“..L.I. – What role does abortion play in satanic rituals, and when did you first get involved in abortion with regard to Satanism?
King – Just after I turned 14, the coven members came to me and said that I was going to be involved in an abortion in about 9 months. There was a sex party with all the male members between 12 and 15 and a female member over 18 and her purpose was to get pregnant, and then she was going to have an abortion in 9 months. When I was told this, I said “cool” out loud, but had no clue what an abortion was. In my family, I think I heard my parents whisper the word abortion once when talking about somebody else, so I thought it was a dirty word because they whispered it and I had never heard that word anywhere else. When I asked about what an abortion was to the coven members, I said I don’t know what I have to do here, they explained that there’s a baby in the womb and you are going to kill it. There will be an abortion doctor there to help you and there will be a nurse because it’s a full medical procedure. My first question was, “is that legal?” The response was, “Yes it is, as long as it’s in the womb. As long as the baby is still inside the woman, you can kill it.”..”

He refuses to pay taxes because he opposes abortions. He just beat the feds in court By Matthew Martinez email@example.com April 14, 2018 10:51 AM Updated 3 hours 14 minutes ago (4.14.18)
“Michael Bowman, a 53-year-old self-employed computer software developer from Columbia City, Oregon, hasn’t paid his federal income taxes since 1999.
He says it’s because his Christian ideals don’t allow him to pay into a system that funds abortions. In a YouTube video explainer of his defense, he likened paying taxes that then go toward funding abortions to German citizens under Nazi rule who outed Jewish citizens, sending them to their deaths.
And according to The Associated Press, he beat the feds in court this week.
To be clear, Bowman won the battle, not the war he’s fighting with the IRS and the Oregon U.S. District Court, when federal Judge Michael W. Mosman dismissed a felony tax evasion charge against Bowman….
In April of 2017, though, President Donald Trump signed a law that prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for abortion, except in cases of rape or to save a woman’s life. The Congressional Budget Office estimated that for the years 2014 and 2015, $450 million in government funding was distributed to Planned Parenthood, which provides abortions as well as education, contraception and other forms of reproductive care.”
