Is murder not “unsafe?”

with one comment

MSNBC has a health article entitledNearly half abortions around globe are unsafe. I would argue that not only are nearly half unsafe, but they are all deadly. The article goes on to assert that unsafe abortions “damage women’s health and threaten their survival.”  Well, maybe they shouldn’t have them then.  What about the survival of the human being they are trying to kill?  The most troubling part of this article is not that women are suffering around the globe, no sane person wants this.  But rather how the deaths of those aborted are ignored in such a careless fashion.

  1. What may be just as egregious is the hidden assumption that a “safe” abortion is innocuous toward a woman’s health. The case that needs to be made is the one that shows the reality of the psychological, emotional and spiritual damage done to a woman who enters and leaves an abortion clinic with no physical problems at all (though often even the physical problems show up after awhile). Those who want abortion to continue – in large part these are men – have a vested interest in making it seem like a woman can go get an abortion and suffer no more fallout than if she had just gone to get a corn removed. This is the lie of “choice” that needs to start being exposed again and again. The vast majority of women who have abortions would have opted not to have one had they felt there was another choice available to them. They enter clinics under duress, and likely, many are willing to risk “unsafe” abortions because the pressure put upon them to kill their child is often intense.
