Facts about abortion:
Many individuals avoid the topic of abortion not only because of the intimate nature of the discussions and articles, but also because of their lack of knowledge on the topic.
Some go as far as to believe that if they choose to have an abortion, they will simply walk into a doctors office and somehow obtain a magic pill that will shrink the baby or magically make it disappear with no trace of what has been done. POOF!
The planned parenthood webpage lists types of abortions, giving the description of “The Abortion Pill” as: “Take medications to end an early pregnancy” and “Safe and Effective.” Planned Parenthood has used the brief description as a way to seduce individuals into thinking its just a pill, and nothing more. All of this of course is untrue. Not only can abortion be an invasive procedureee, but it is also can be painful and leave the patient with several issues (infection and other problems). Below are some gruesome facts about abortion and I hope these will shed some light on what it entails.
According to 1973 Roe v. Wade, Abortion is a legal procedure in the U.S.
A perfectly healthy baby boy or girl may be aborted far past the first trimester (a baby’s brain with two visible lobes, spinal cord, heart and other organs begin to form at just three weeks from conception and it’s heart beats at just four weeks!)
Scientists have determined “fetal viability” to land somewhere around 22 weeks gestation. In 2006, the earliest premature birth was a little girl named Amillia, whose mother had complications, forcing the doctors to deliver her baby early. Amillia survived, while being the earliest preemie ever at only 21 weeks and 6 days gestation. This is just short of the pro-choice scientist’s fetal viability estimations.
A full term pregnancy is generally 37-40(42) weeks gestation. According to Planned Parenthood, abortions are offered all the way up to 24 weeks gestation.
The Partial-birth Abortion Ban Act was put in place in 2003, which makes partial birth abortions illegal under Federal law (and now also many state laws). In 2007 The Supreme Court upheld the ban on partial-birth abortions without exceptions (i.e. in cases where the procedure is deemed by a doctor as necessary for reasons of medical condition of the mother).
Over 53 million babies have been slaughtered since Roe v. Wade in 1973. That is a staggering number!
Approximately 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 World Trade Center disaster, and every DAY more than 3,000 babies are aborted! How is this allowed? And how is this still a legal procedure? Think about the months and months of news coverage on the 9/11 attacks. I wonder why abortion is not as publicly opposed!?
Over half of all abortions are done out of convenience or because the pregnancy was unplanned.
A reported 41% of all New York City pregnancies are aborted.
In a 1922 book entitled “Woman, Morality, and Birth Control”, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger wrote the following….
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
(What tyrannical leader does this sound like?)
Come back to my blog and read my next posts dedicated to descriptions and types of abortions, and also statistics and polls! Knowledge is power folks! Get schooled and get arguing (Pro-Life, of course!)
