Complications of unsafe abortion in sub-Saharan Africa: a review. (4/322)

The Commonwealth Regional Health Community Secretariat undertook a study in 1994 to document the magnitude of abortion complications in Commonwealth member countries. The results of the literature review component of that study, and research gaps identified as a result of the review, are presented in this article. The literature review findings indicate a significant public health problem in the region, as measured by a high proportion of incomplete abortion patients among all hospital gynaecology admissions. The most common complications of unsafe abortion seen at health facilities were haemorrhage and sepsis. Studies on the use of manual vacuum aspiration for treating abortion complications found shorter lengths of hospital stay (and thus, lower resource costs) and a reduced need for a repeat evacuation. Very few articles focused exclusively on the cost of treating abortion complications, but authors agreed that it consumes a disproportionate amount of hospital resources. Studies on the role of men in supporting a woman's decision to abort or use contraception were similarly lacking. Articles on contraceptive behaviour and abortion reported that almost all patients suffering from abortion complications had not used an effective, or any, method of contraception prior to becoming pregnant, especially among the adolescent population; studies on post-abortion contraception are virtually nonexistent. Almost all articles on the legal aspect of abortion recommended law reform to reflect a public health, rather than a criminal, orientation. Research needs that were identified include: community-based epidemiological studies; operations research on decentralization of post-abortion care and integration of treatment with post-abortion family planning services; studies on system-wide resource use for treatment of incomplete abortion; qualitative research on the role of males in the decision to terminate pregnancy and use contraception; clinical studies on pain control medications and procedures; and case studies on the provision of safe abortion services where legally allowed.  (+info)

International developments in abortion law from 1988 to 1998. (5/322)

OBJECTIVES: In 2 successive decades since 1967, legal accommodation of abortion has grown in many countries. The objective of this study was to assess whether liberalizing trends have been maintained in the last decade and whether increased protection of women's human rights has influenced legal reform. METHODS: A worldwide review was conducted of legislation and judicial rulings affecting abortion, and legal reforms were measured against governmental commitments made under international human rights treaties and at United Nations conferences. RESULTS: Since 1987, 26 jurisdictions have extended grounds for lawful abortion, and 4 countries have restricted grounds. Additional limits on access to legal abortion services include restrictions on funding of services, mandatory counseling and reflection delay requirements, third-party authorizations, and blockades of abortion clinics. CONCLUSIONS: Progressive liberalization has moved abortion laws from a focus on punishment toward concern with women's health and welfare and with their human rights. However, widespread maternal mortality and morbidity show that reform must be accompanied by accessible abortion services and improved contraceptive care and information.  (+info)

Ethical aspects of neural tissue transplantation. (8/322)

The method of neural grafting is considered to be a very promising therapeutic strategy for the treatment of certain neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease or Huntington's disease. During the last 15 years, clinical transplantation studies have been carried out worldwide in several hundreds of patients with Parkinson's disease. In these studies, primarily fetal mesencephalic tissue derived from aborted human fetuses has been used for implantation. Neural tissue transplantation gives rise to ethical issues in two different areas that need careful examination: the first, ethical problems linked to the use of tissue from aborted human fetuses; and the second, ethical issues concerning the graft recipients in clinical trials, i.e., his or her well-being, personality, and personal identity.  (+info)

Title: Incidence of legal abortion in Sweden after the Chernobyl accident. Author: V Odlind, A Ericson. Reference: Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Volume 45, Issue 6, 1991, Pages 225-228. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/0753-3322(91)90021-K. Keywords: Chernobyl, abortion. Abstract: The number of legal abortions in Sweden increased around the time of the Chernobyl accident, particularly in the summer and autumn of 1986. Although there was no recording of reasons for legal abortions, one might have suspected this increase to be a result of fear and anxiety after the accident. However, seen over a longer time perspective, the increase in the number of abortions started before and continued far beyond the time of the accident. There was also a simultaneous and pronounced increase in the number of births during the years subsequent to the accident. Therefore, it seems unlikely that fear of the consequences of radioactive fall-out after the Chernobyl accident resulted in any substantial increase of the ...
Unsafe abortions significant contribution to maternal mortality and morbidity was a critical factor leading to liberalization of Nepals restrictive abortion law in 2002. Careful, comprehensive planning among a range of multisectoral stakeholders, led by Nepals Ministry of Health and Population, enabled the country subsequently to introduce and scale up safe abortion services in a remarkably short timeframe. This paper examines factors that contributed to rapid, successful implementation of legal abortion in this mountainous republic, including deliberate attention to the key areas of policy, health system capacity, equipment and supplies, and information dissemination. Important elements of this successful model of scaling up safe legal abortion include: the pre-existence of postabortion care services, through which health-care providers were already familiar with the main clinical technique for safe abortion; government leadership in coordinating complementary contributions from a wide range of

In 2016, 25 women had legal abortions in the Republic of Ireland, the European country famed for Guinness and its easygoing capital Dublin. In that same year, 3,265 women from Ireland traveled over the Irish Sea to England and Wales to have abortions. The procedure is available in only very limited cases in the republic. But that could all change after a historic public vote on abortion law in May.. Ireland has some of the strictest abortion laws in the world. Traveling overseas for an abortion is not forbidden there, but terminating a pregnancy in the country including with abortion pills ordered online, now a popular method (Irish Times), is illegal in nearly all cases. Unlike most other European countries, even rape or incest do not qualify a woman for an abortion.. The country, rooted in Catholicism but increasingly secular, has long been divided on the topic. Though historically taboo and a subject to avoid at the dinner table across Ireland, frequent marches, protests, and even advertising ...
Results: A total of 765,651 abortions were reported to CDC for 2010. Of these abortions, 753,065 (98.4%) were from the 46 reporting areas that provided data every year during 2001-2010. Among these same 46 reporting areas, the abortion rate for 2010 was 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 years, and the abortion ratio was 228 abortions per 1,000 live births. Compared with 2009, the total number and rate of reported abortions for 2010 decreased 3% and reached the lowest levels for the entire period of analysis (2001-2010); the abortion ratio was stable, changing only 0.4%. From 2001 to 2010, the total number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 9%, 10%, and 8%, respectively. Given the 3% decrease from 2009 to 2010 in the total number and rate of reported abortions, in combination with the 5% decrease that had occurred in the previous year from 2008 to 2009, the overall decrease for both measures was greater during 2006-2010 than during 2001-2005, despite the annual variations ...

Well, the sad, mean, and foolish attitudes of Ms. Moore continue in force. Heres part of her remarks the other day as she celebrated 40 years of legal abortion. This is the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the ability for women to have a safe and legal abortion. But it really is 40 years of affirming motherhood. And to say, as weve said in our oath of office that we take, it should be done willfully without purpose of evasion and that we go into it mindful of the responsibility that is ahead of us. Parenting is difficult on your best day. And it doesnt serve children, and it certainly doesnt serve women to be forced into parenthood. And I think this is what the public has come to understand. That safe, legal abortions are very important for the health of children, women, the institution of motherhood, family, and ultimately to our society ...
Abortion in the third trimester - should be illegal except in the case of the mothers life being in danger. It seems to me pretty clear that a fetus that is viable and can move in the womb and is beginning to look like a human being has received a spirit. It is of course theoretically possible that this spirit is implanted in the womb at the moment of birth, but that doesnt seem likely to me. Science is showing us that fetuses act like babies as early as the fourth or fifth month.. So, if we can settle on policy that is somewhere in between, could we resolve the abortion issue so that the majority of people - not the ones on the fringes on both sides - would be satisfied?. Personally, I would favor legal abortion during the first trimester in all cases. I would favor legal abortion during all three trimesters in the case of the mothers life being in danger. I would favor legal abortion during the first two trimesters in cases of rape or incest. I would also favor laws that require women ...
Elevated temperature may be a sign of infection which requires additional treatment.. For first and second trimester patients, call our office immediately if your temperature is over 100.4F at any time.. For Chemical Abortion patients, call our office immediately if your temperature is over 100.4F for more than 4 hours on the day of Misoprostol use or above 100.4F on any day after Misoprostol use.. Do not put anything into your vagina for two weeks or until after your post-abortion check-up.. This includes intercourse, fingers, diaphragms, tampons, douching, tub baths, hot tubs, and swimming (showers are ok). Any introduction of bacteria into the vagina can increase your chances of getting an infection. Also remember that women can become pregnant again following an abortion, some within two weeks. For patients less than 6 weeks pregnant, one can engage in sexual intercourse within 24 hours of the surgical procedure or anytime the patient is comfortable after the non-surgical procedure..

Riding around Johannesburg, Cape Town, and East London, I was struck by the ubiquitous roadside signs advertising Safe Same-Day Abortion and Abortion-Quick and Safe, 100% Pain-Free in 30 Minutes. They advertised low prices-100 Rand (about $6.50)-and included cell phone numbers. Shady. I wondered why abortion services were advertised this way when its been legal for 20 years.. In 1996, South Africa legalized abortion up to 20 weeks with the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act, which also called for providing free services in certain public health facilities. Although the law is one of the most liberal and progressive in the world, the lived experience of many South Africans points to a different reality. Poverty, lack of access to information and services, and stigma remain significant barriers to safe abortion.. Marion Stevens, chair of the Sexual and Reproductive Justice Coalition (SRJC), a network of feminist advocates and service providers, noted that the law legalizing abortion was ...
In both years slightly more than half of patients reported that they had used a contraceptive method in the month they became pregnant, though the decline from 54% in 2000 to 51% in 2014 was statistically significant (p=.011). The methods most commonly reported to have been used in the month the pregnancy began were condoms (28% and 24% in 2000 and 2014, p,.001) followed by the pill (14% and 13%, p=.12). There was a statistically significant increase in the proportion of abortion patients who reported using long-acting reversible methods in the month they got pregnant (0.1% in 2000 vs. 1% in 2014, p,.001), and the estimated number of abortions attributed to these users was greater in 2014 than in 2000 (9500 vs. 1800).. ...

The number of abortion facilities in the United States has been declining, and many midwestern and southern states have few abortion clinics left. In response, supporters of legal abortion have advanced some medically risky proposals to expand abortion access. For instance, in 2013, the California state legislature passed a bill allowing nurses and midwives, in addition to doctors, to perform abortions. In 2008, Planned Parenthood in Iowa began offering telemed abortions - chemical abortions administered to patients who ingest abortion-inducing medication without a physician physically present. In 2016, abortion facilities in Maine also started offering telemed abortions.. Many people are concerned about the safety of this type of abortion procedure. In fact, 19 states have passed legislation banning the practice, putting supporters of legal abortion on the defensive. Last week, the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology published a study, which purports to show that telemed abortions taking place in ...
As the parade progressed the celebrity busses passed by filled with another angry bunch of women with an agenda to push. Ashley Judd and Whoopi Goldberg were probably the biggest draw for the feminists and they didnt disappoint the crowd. Whoopi continually misrepresents the Catholic Church and her teachings as she waves her coat hanger with such conviction. She is so convinced that women need the right to kill their babies by legal abortion or they will die by their own desperate hands. Here is where Whoopi and I part ways. As my sign said very plainly, Women Killed By Legal Abortion .The pro-choice feminists in the crowd repeatedly asked me, What about the women who died from illegal abortion? Are these women the only ones the choice community is concerned with and will recognize as important? Did the feminists miss something? Are they telling me that my daughters brutal death isnt important because ABORTION WAS LEGAL THEN! So when Whoopi is waving her hanger, she really doesnt care ...
Women on Waves was founded in 1999 by Rebecca Gomperts. After completing her training as an abortion doctor, Rebecca Gomperts worked as a physician on board Greenpeaces ship, the Rainbow Warrior II. In South America she met many women who greatly suffer both physically and psychologically due to unwanted pregnancies and lack of access to safe, legal abortion. Their stories were all heart wrenching. There were women who were raped. There were women who had no means of support. And there were women who were ostracized from their communities. These women and their stories are the inspiration for Women on Waves.. With a ship Women on Waves can provide contraceptives, information, training, workshops, and safe and legal abortion services outside territorial waters in countries where abortion is illegal. In international waters (12 miles off the coast of a country) the local laws do not apply. Working in close cooperation with local organizations, Women on Waves wants to respond to an urgent medical ...

Pregnancy termination at this stage requires more experience and skill by the operating physician. It also requires scrupulous attention to procedures that reduce the risk of complications. The first step for third trimester patients is the same as for second trimester patients at 20 weeks or more. The main difference is that more precautions are taken to reduce the inherent risks associated with more advanced pregnancy terminations. One of the main differences for third trimester patients having a pregnancy terminated for a fetal anomaly is that they may wish to have an intact fetus they can view and hold as part of the grieving process. For many of these patients, it isnt just a fetus - it is a baby. The woman and her family may request certain procedures such as religious ceremonies, genetic studies, formal autopsy, private cremation, or private burial. A patient may request an exclusive or private appointment with Dr. Pendergraft by contacting him by E-mail preferable: ...

The left is obsessed over imposing gun control on the civilian population, as if firearms were the leading cause of deaths. But official U.S. statistics indicate that left-wingers are wrong. The leading cause of death in the United States is by far abortion, which is fully protected by leftists with various absurd laws. While the defense weapons function is to protect lives against armed criminals, the function of legal abortion is to kill innocent lives.. Legal abortion, protected by left-wingers, provokes over 600,000 murders a year. Firearms in the hands of criminals provoke about 12,000 murders a year, and they are not among the leading causes of deaths. But if American citizens were disarmed, as the left wants, the number of murders would increase dramatically, as Brazils poor example shows, where gun control policies historically dominate, and the predicted outcome is over 60,000 murders a year.. I am sure that if gun control is approved in America, armed violence will become one of the ...

Since legal reform in 2005, health system and community interventions spearheaded by the Ethiopia Ministry of Health have made significant progress in increasing the reach, availability, utilization, and quality of safe abortion care throughout the country. The MoH has worked with a range of donors and development partners, including NGOs such as Ipas and EngenderHealth, in order to make high quality CAC services available at all levels of the public health system. Their efforts have included the development and dissemination of evidenced-based national standards and guidelines in 2006 [6] and a revision in 2014 to incorporate recent WHO recommendations [14]; training of health professionals at all levels of the health system with a particular focus on task-shifting to midlevel providers; integrating SAC and post-abortion contraception into existing reproductive health services; ensuring the sustainable supply of equipment and medications required for SAC; engaging with the private sector to ...
The city will not disclose the medical records of patients who have received abortions at the hospital, nor will it disclose the names of physicians who have observed or performed abortions, City Attorney Dennis Herreras office said in a letter to the U.S. Justice Department. Wholesale disclosure of this information would result in the gross violation of our patients privacy rights, and the unjustifiable harassment of our physicians. The Acts constitutionality will ultimately turn on the testimony of medical experts, not on the anecdotal experiences of this or that physician, or this or that patient, said the letter by Deputy City Attorney Kathleen Morris. Despite Ashcrofts assurances that patients names would be protected, the demand for records has a potential chilling effect on the privacy of peoples medical information, Herrera said in an interview.
by Goretti Horgan Today (27 April 2018) marks 50 years since the implementation of the 1967 Abortion Act. One of the main reasons it was supported in Parliament was to end practice of backstreet or self-induced abortions which was widespread, although very dangerous. Before the Act, each year, 30 or so deaths occurred and at…
God says in the Quran, Ruined are those who murder their children foolishly without knowledge and forbid what God has provided them with while inventing falsehoods against God. They have strayed and are not guided aright (6:140).. About this verse, Imam Fakr al-Din al-Razi (d. 1210) comments,. Many issues relate to the verse: the first issue is that God mentioned, in the preceding verse, their murder of their children while depriving themselves of the sustenance that God provided them with. Then, God brings these two matters together in this verse while clarifying to them all that is a logical consequence of this judgment, such as ruin, folly, lack of knowledge, the deprivation of what God has provided them, false statements against God, straying, and the privation of guidance. So these are seven characteristics, each of which is an independent cause for censure. The first is ruin (khusran), and that is because a child is an immense blessing from God upon a person, so when one strives to ...

The following descriptions and recommendations were extracted from WHO guidance on safe abortion.. In situations where abortion is restricted for sex selection purposes, terminating a pregnancy for this reason is likely to involve an unsafe procedure carrying high risks. Any policies or guidelines on the use of technology in obstetric and fetal medicine should take into account the need to ensure womens access to safe abortion and other services - efforts to manage or limit sex selection should also not hamper or limit access to safe abortion services.

Jonathan Parent, PhD, Political Science, Le Moyne College. September 16, 2016 While no legal restrictions on abortion access existed in the late 18th century, statutes targeting the practice began to appear by the 1820s. Indeed, New York was among the first states to ban abortion, passing what was at the time arguably the most draconian law against the procedure in 1828. By the turn of the 20th century, the intentional termination of a pregnancy was a felony in every state in the country. The conflict over abortion policy in American society, then, is far from a recent development, despite the sea change represented by the Supreme Courts 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. How supporters and opponents of legal abortions have understood, articulated, and framed their positions, however, has shifted dramatically over time. This talk will focus on how Americans perceptions of abortion have evolved from a concern on the part of physicians about the safety of the procedure to an ongoing debate about a ...

I wont even pretend that I understand this answer. Complacency about what? Abortion? Politics in general? And what does this have to do with Hillary Clinton?. Beats me. But it doesnt really matter. Everyone assumes that DWS was talking about complacency toward abortion rights, and young feminists arent happy about her sweeping criticism of an entire generation. Generally speaking, though, the response has been that there are plenty of young women who work hard on abortion rights these days, which is certainly true. But DWS isnt denying that. What shes saying is that there are fewer young women today working hard on abortion rights. Or perhaps that they dont have as much passion as they used to have.. That got me curious. Is this true? Is there any evidence for it? Unfortunately, I couldnt really figure out how you might measure it. I doubt theres any historical data on the number of abortion activists broken up by age and gender. Theres plenty of poll data on attitudes toward abortion, ...

The Abortion Act 1967 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom legalising abortions on certain grounds by registered practitioners, and regulating the tax-paid provision of such medical practices through the National Health Service (NHS). It was introduced by David Steel as a Private Members Bill, but was backed by the government, who appointed the president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Sir John Peel, to chair a medical advisory committee that reported in favour of passing the bill.[2] After a further heated political and moral debate, under a free vote, it was passed on 27 October 1967, coming into effect on 27 April 1968. The Act made abortion legal on a wide number of grounds in all of Great Britain (but not Northern Ireland) up to 28 weeks gestation. The Act does not extend to Northern Ireland, where abortion was illegal unless the doctor acted only to save the life of the mother or if continuing the pregnancy would have resulted in the pregnant ...
Shrage argues that Roe v Wades regulatory scheme of a six-month time span for abortion on demand polarized the public and obscured alternatives with potentially broader support. She explores the origins of that scheme, then defends an alternate one--with a time span shorter than 6 months for non-therapeutic abortions--that could win broad support needed to make legal abortion services available to all women.

Three years before the publication of Surfacing, Montreal-based Dr. Henry Morgentaler opened the first private abortion clinic in Canada. Canadas first Criminal Code, ratified in 1892, prohibited all forms of abortion, and it wasnt until 1967 that the clause was challenged. The first Trudeau government formed a committee, and invited Morgentaler to speak. At the time, a woman seeking a legal abortion would only be allowed to undergo the procedure if she could demonstrate that the pregnancy put her life at risk and/or was the result of incest or rape. She would have to argue her case for an abortion, a procedure that was only legally available in hospitals, before a committee of three doctors, who would then collectively determine the fate of her body. Because so few hospitals provided the service, and general practitioners werent permitted to perform it on their patients, many women were unable to access a legal abortion, compelling some to attempt dangerous and unregulated procedures.

For the purpose of this study, LA was considered the abortion provided in the Maputo Central Hospital with the approval of the Ministry of Health, and IA the one not provided through the approved facility, mentioned above. Women with IA were recruited in the outpatient gynaecology ward and women with LA in the emergency gynaecology ward in the Maputo Central Hospital, during the same time period. Serological tests for syphilis (rapid plasma reagin, ELISA-IgC and fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption), gonorrhoea (indirect haemagglutination) and chlamydia (microimmunofluorescence) were carried out. Direct immuno-fluorescence for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis antigen was done on endocervical smears from all ...
It is deeply disappointing that the High Court has ruled that women from Northern Ireland are not legally entitled to abortions provided by the NHS in England because women from Northern Ireland are not covered by the 1967 Abortion Act. This is yet another obstacle put in the way of women who make the decision to terminate a pregnancy from obtaining a safe legal abortion. An unjust law has been used to justify an unfair ban on women accessing NHS services. The cost of travelling to the UK for women from Northern Ireland is in itself prohibitive, with the cost of travel, accommodation and obtaining a private abortion estimated at £400 - £2000. NHS provision of sexual health and abortion services is already woefully inadequate in England with over half of terminations carried out in private clinics under NHS contracts, and a quarter of all women paying for private terminations due to the waiting time for an abortion through the NHS. Yet this doesnt have to be the case, in Scotland almost all ...

by Alix Masters. As a woman who believes whole-heartedly in the human right to safe and legal access to abortion regardless of circumstance, it is rare I find myself balking at a movement to extend legal access to abortion. However, in the case of Brazils Zika epidemic, I am struck by an ethical dilemma. Brazil, a historically pro-life country, is currently considering reforming their anti-abortion laws exclusively in cases of fetal defects caused by Zika infection.[1] I strongly believe reproductive rights are human rights, however, if the only exceptions made in allowing safe and legal access to abortion are in cases of a disabled fetus, we as ethicists must pause. The fact that in Brazil, a country with a strong moral and legal belief in fetal personhood, lawmakers are willing to abandon this belief solely in cases of the physically and intellectually disabled presents dangerous infringements on disabled individuals rights. Furthermore, advocating for legal abortion solely in the case of ...

The Catholic bishops also voiced concern at the redefinition of marriage, saying it effectively places the union of two men, or two women, on a par with the marriage relationship between a husband and wife which is open to the procreation of children.. Previously, Northern Irelands laws only permitted abortion in cases where a womans life is at risk, or where there is a permanent or serious risk to her mental or physical health. Backers of the law said it had saved over 100,000 lives by avoiding the permissive law that took effect in other parts of the United Kingdom in 1967.. The new law means no explicit legal protections for unborn children up to 28 weeks into pregnancy, compared to legal abortion up to 24 weeks in other parts of the U.K. Pressure to legalize abortion in Northern Ireland increased after a 2018 referendum legalized abortion in the Republic of Ireland.. Critics of the British Parliaments law incorporated matters of special importance to the region. They said the law ...
Guest Column - International Safe Abortion Day - celebrated every year on September 28 - marks a womans fundamental reproductive right to access safe, legal abortion.

It allows women and couples the right to decide freely if and when to have children.
Downloadable! Although it is commonly believed that trade liberalization results in higher GDP, little is known about its effects on poverty and inequality. This paper uses the sharp trade liberalization in India in 1991, spurred to a large extent by external factors, to measure the causal impact of trade liberalization on poverty and inequality in districts in India. Variation in pre-liberalization industrial composition across districts in India and the variation in the degree of liberalization across industries allow for a difference-in-difference approach, establishing whether certain areas benefited more from, or bore a disproportionate share of the burden of liberalization. In rural districts where industries more exposed to liberalization were concentrated, poverty incidence and depth decreased by less as a result of trade liberalization, a setback of about 15 percent of Indias progress in poverty reduction over the 1990s. The results are robust to pre-reform trends, convergence and time-varying
You wrote, A considerable amount of evidence must be offered for any thoughtful person to exclude these pressures as the primary cause of lack of access to abortion. Im not sure what a considerable amount of evidence might be, but the article Influence of physician attitudes on willingness to perform abortion, which appeared in vol. 93, n. 4 of Obstetrics and gynecology, 1999, concluded that The most important personal factors influencing a physicians decision not to perform abortions included lack of proper training and ethical and religious beliefs. An article in Family Medicine, 1999; 31(3) entitled Medical Students Attitudes Toward Abortion and Other Reproductive Health Services concluded that most med students intended to include abortion in their practice in spite of continuing pressure on abortion providers. Both of these studies were done in the late 90s, when violence against abortion providers was at its peak. Violence against abortion providers has declined markedly ...

Learn about the two Supreme Court decisions, Roe vs Wade & Doe vs Bolton, that together created legal abortion on demand in the United States.
WHEREAS, on January 22, 1973, in a historic and landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade that the U.S. Constitution safeguards a womans ability to make her own personal medical decisions about when or whether to have children, as grounded in the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which protects against state action the right to privacy, including a womans qualified right to terminate her pregnancy; and. WHEREAS, this right has been affirmed in subsequent Supreme Court cases such as Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992) and Whole Womans Health v. Hellerstedt (2016); and. WHEREAS, the Trump-Pence administrations repeated attacks on, and stated desire to restrict access to, abortion and other reproductive health care have given states across the United States a green light to pass unconstitutional barriers to safe and legal abortion; and. WHEREAS, many states including Alabama, Kentucky, Georgia, and Missouri have, in direct conflict with Supreme Court ...

The latest annual report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, incorporating data from 47 states, said the abortion rate for 2013 was 12.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 years. That is down 5 percent from 2012, and is half the rate of 25 recorded in 1980.. The last time the CDC recorded a lower abortion rate was in 1971, two years before the U.S. Supreme Courts Roe v. Wade decision that established a nationwide right for women to have abortions. Abortion was legal in some states at that time.. The CDC tallied 664,435 abortions in 2013 from the 47 states, down 5 percent from 2012 and down 20 percent from 2004. The CDC does not receive abortion data from California, Maryland and New Hampshire - and thus its total is less than the widely accepted current estimate of more than 900,000 abortions per year in all 50 states..

The exclusion of abortion as a cause of death, in spite of conclusive science to contrary, and the relative paucity of information and funded research on a topic of demonstrated consequence to the demographic composition of the society, may be the ultimate example of science denial. An abortion death is deemed necessary and performed by other humans in a purposeful and completely legal process. In these respects an abortion is similar to capital punishment and subject to the same clash of varying religious, political and ideological values. The appropriate role of science is to inform this societal dialogue with objective information. Labeling abortion as a preventable death is not an argument for restricting access to a legal abortion. However, refusing to acknowledge abortion as a death undermines the role of science and the value of transparency so fundamental to a free society ...
War Against The Weak: Eugenics and Americas Campaign to Create a Master Race, by Edward Black. 550 pp, with notes, appendices and bibliography. Four Walls Eight Windows, New York.. With vigor and eloquence, Pope John Paul II has spoken against the culture of death. Without too much thought, one might believe that culture is of recent vintage and found in legal abortion and the debate over legalizing euthanasia.. But the culture of death is much older, and may well have its roots in the eugenics programs of the early 20th century. Writing in War Against The Weak: Eugenics and Americas Campaign to Create A Master Race, Edwin Black casts an unwelcome spotlight on an ugly time when American leaders and philanthropic institutions virtually created eugenics and sought to stop the unfit from reproducing.. As valuable as the book is, however, Black doesnt draw, at least explicitly, one important connection: Without the State, eugenics is impossible.. Early Eugenics. The book begins with a ...
BBC Children in Need is a charity of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to raise money for the support of children, including disabled children. Its main fundraising vehicle is an annual telethon, which this year (2014) is being held this evening (14 November). The BBC Children in Need website reveals that in the last three years it made grants to sexual health centres and homosexual youth projects. In SPUCs experience, such centres and projects often support and/or facilitate legal abortion, abortifacient birth control and/or damaging forms of sex education. For example, BBC Children in Need has given funds to the Terrence Higgins Trust, which has endorsed a right to choose abortion, promoted morning-after pills, produced pro-euthanasia advance directives (living wills) and produced highly-explicit sex education material. [John Smeaton, 12 November 2011] Also, BBC Children In Need has previously given grants to charities funding abortion and family planning services and using ...
If a child is conceived through rape, and the woman decides not to abort, and a few years later someone deliberately kills the kid, you wouldnt say, Well, thats not murder because the child was originally conceived by rape. We all know that at some point it does become murder to kill a child, even if the child was conceived through rape and/or incest. Pro-lifers like Ryan put that point at conception, and therefore any pro-lifer who supports legal abortion in the case of rape or incest is necessarily declaring that they support legalized murder.. The pro-choice position, by contrast, is both more obvious and more self-consistent. The reason abortion is not murder in the case of rape or incest is because its not murder even in the case of consensual sex. The unformed child is not yet a person, because the essential attributes that make us persons are attributes that are not yet present. People are different from single-celled organisms, but the fertilized egg, not so much. People are ...
