If you are unfamiliar with Live Action, they are a group of people who exploit Planned Parenthood groups. Recently, they came out with their newest video. ”Investigation of medical lies and manipulation at Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin”
The part that surprised me the most was this when Dr. P said,
"This is very safe. The stage you’re at now is very, very safe. Safer than having a baby, actually… Much safer than having a baby. You know women die having babies."
"Do women die with abortions?" Sara
"Yes, but it’s never happened to me. And I’ve been doing this for over 40 years… That’s a lot of abortions."
Wow. Here are the facts on that:
1/166,000 women die of abortions, 1/6000 after 21 weeks.
1/100 abortions end in serious complications.
Not to mention Post Abortion Trauma Syndrome. Also, (listed in my previous blog) if number of “deaths” is what’s considered safe and not safe, then what do you say to this:
23% had hallucinations related to the abortion
35% perceived visitation from the aborted child
54% had nightmares related to the abortion
69% experienced feelings of “craziness”
73% had flashbacks of abortion experience
81% had a preoccupation with the aborted child
61% increased their use of alcohol
65% had thoughts of suicide
69% were sexually inhibited
73% had flashbacks of the abortion
77% experienced an inability to communicate
81% experienced frequent crying
Fact remains fact. It’s true that more women die from pregnancy rather than abortions (during and after), but pregnancy does not lead to the statistics listed above. NOR does pregnancy lead to complications later on in life.
Don’t get me wrong, there is no such thing as “mother in danger”. There is never a case in which a child must be aborted in order to save the mother. Death due to pregnancy also contains homicides and accidents.
HOWEVER these statistics are sooo tiny, they should never be used to prove a point.
