If You REally Cared About Women, You’d Be Prolife

Abortion is not a safe procedure. It has high risks to the mother, and they last much longer than the cramping and bleeding:

Premature labor with subsequent pregnancies:
In the past few years, an ever-increasing number of studies have demonstrated that elective abortions in the first and second trimester are associated with an increased risk of subsequent spontaneous pre-term birth. A 2012 study published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, which looked at 26 years of birth data, showed that a single induced abortion increased a woman’s risk of having a premature baby by 37%.

How ironically sad to know that somebody choosing to abort because they might have a handicapped child might very well be causing disabilities for their next child.

Perforated uteruses are common;
“There are only two kinds of doctors who have never perforated a uterus,” he added, “those that lie and those who don’t do abortions.”

Abortion and the link to Breast Cancer– media cover up, lawsuit settled out of court, and women who have a family history of breast cancer who have an abortion see their risk of breast cancer go up 100 percent- tell me again how much the pro-aborts care about women’s health.

90% of all pregnancies on girls under 18 involve relationships with men over 18– half of those are men over 20. That statistic, by the way, is not from a pro-life friendly source. On the contrary, it is from a pro-abortion source that claims that pro-lifers actually want to protect these predators and punish the underage girls. This calumny is despicable. This is statutory rape, and Planned Parenthood has been caught repeatedly violating the laws mandating that such crimes be reported.

If pro-aborts were really so much more compassionate about the women, then why do they want toignore the research indicating a connection between breast cancer and abortion? But there’s enough data there that we should all be at least informed about it, rather than having those who allegedly have the best interests of women at heart protecting our ignorant little heads by trying to sweep it under the rug. It’s a particularly nasty form of paternalism that seeks to keep this kind of information from getting out to the women it affects the most.

Here is a list of other complications and risks that women should learn about before they have an abortion, not afterwards. Looking over that list, imagine the mindset of those who believe that under-age girls should be able to keep from their parents the knowledge that they are going to have a medical procedure which carries it with the risk of:
A lacerated uterus
a perforated uterus
a blood transfusion
increased risks of future miscarriages

How compassionate is it really to insist that abortion is such a risk free procedure that minors who can’t get their ears pierced without parental permission can risk getting their uterus’ pierced without even letting their parents know? How compassionate is it to insist that it’s ‘patronizing’ to insist that women should at least be told of these risks? How patronizing and hypocritical is it to prefer that women and girls should have medical procedures from doctors who won’t tell them the risks?

The real reason most pro-choice men are pro-choice. NARAL and Planned Parenthood love them, anyway, because they don’t really care about women.  Abortion is a profit-making source of income for Planned Parenthood.

I am pro-life. I believe that life begins from the point of conception because that is the only logically consistent clear, bright, line.  Children are *born* able to recognize certain words, to recognize their mothers’ voices.  There is no way to logically argue that they are not human children, although some people still try.  Others, of course, even more horrifically shrug their shoulders and insist it doesn’t matter.
I do not believe children of rapists should be executed for their fathers’ crimes. But since pro-choice/pro-aborts always bring up rape and incest and the life of the mother, okay, fine. Although it’s still murder, and more likely to cause additional trauma for the mother than to alleviate her trauma, for the purposes of the discussion, I tell people I would accept a ban on abortions except for rape, incest, or the life of the mother for now.

Basically I am saying exactly what Mike S. Adams says:

Quote: “I always extend the following offer to the abortion choice advocate: “If I agree to write the exception for rape, will you be willing to lobby for the law banning abortion?””

They never are, because they don’t really care about rape victims except to exploit them in the abortion cause. As I said, this is essentially calling a bluff, because pro-aborts use victims of rape as a bluff.

    Thanks for an informative post. As usual for the Zookeeper.

    On exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother:…
    People routinely use the tactic of pushing their opponents into an untenable, (“logical”) extreme position with the implied alternative that a slippery-slope argument leads to some alternative position. In the real world, we all inhabit positions on the slippery slope. If acceptance of the rape/incest/life exception indicates a moral compromise so what? Welcome to life on the slippery slope. Did the incremental abolition of slavery in New York State require a moral compromise? Britain abolished slavery without a civil war.
    You know my position on abortion. No need to argue that here and now. We can fight later.

    “I tell people I would accept a ban on abortions except for rape, incest, or the life of the mother for now.”

    Along with this, I would, also, concede to free birth control and free counseling in an effort to address any ways to prevent a pregnancy that someone is not ready for.
