The Facts that Big Abortion Tries to Hide

The trauma surgeons at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago did everything they could to save Tonya Reaves on that July day in 2012. After finding an “uncontrollable bleed,” they tried an emergency hysterectomy, but it was too late . . . because Tonya had already spent more than five hours bleeding in the recovery room of a local Planned Parenthood abortion shop after a botched abortion. She died before the day was over. She was only twenty-four. The abortion industry wants to bury stories like Tonya’s, or if they do come out, to present them as tragic but isolated accidents. However, the truth is that since 2009, at least 89 abortion providers in 29 states have faced investigations, criminal charges, administrative complaints, civil lawsuits, or been cited for violating state laws governing the operation of abortion businesses. In addition to ending millions of unborn lives, abortion is creating a healthcare crisis for women in our nation. In order to overturn Roe v. Wade, the American people need to know the real facts about how abortion harms women. [Charmaine Yoest, AUL, 26Feb2014]   Abortion is linked to increased risk of breast cancer, depression & suicide, and prematurity in future children. Premature birth can lead to cerebral palsy, failure to thrive, increased hospital visits, and many other serious problems for future children.

How Much It Costs to Save a Human Life

In 2013, a national pro-life group used $5 million to SAVE 39,315 babies!  So, for every donation of $127, a precious, beautiful life was saved! By the same token, in 2013, Planned Parenthood received $540 million of your – and my – tax dollars and surgically aborted 327,166 babies, thus receiving $1,692 of our hard-earned tax money for every baby it KILLED.  ...

Elective Delivery Should Be Elective For the BABY!

A Full-Term Pregnancy normally lasts 40 weeks (38-42 weeks LMP). Every week — even every day — that this full-term pregnancy is shortened can have negative effects on the baby. Here are just a few of the SERIOUS RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH PRE-TERM BIRTH: — admission to newborn ICU / hospital re-admission / — respiratory problems / sepsis / jaundice / — feeding & sucking problems / temperature regulation problems / — brain injuries, i.e. cerebral palsy / school problems / behavior problems, i.e. ADHD / — obesity & reduced insulin sensitivity In Alabama, Non-Hispanic Blacks are 46% more likely to have preterm births than whites – they also abort at 3 TIMES the rate of whites (almost 60% of all abortions in AL are procured by Black women)… Does anyone see a connection here? Abortion can dramatically increase the risk of preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies… over 143 published studies worldwide show this abortion-preterm birth link… In conclusion, 2 simple steps could DRAMATICALLY DECREASE PRETERM BIRTHS  —   & THUS DECREASE SERIOUS RISKS TO BABIES: 1) For elective births, let the baby begin the labor/birth process, normally at 40 weeks — it's Worth the Weight to Wait!! 2) Avoid Abortion to avoid compromising the mother's (your) cervix … this will protect against unplanned preterm labor and preterm birth in future pregnancies.

Why Do We Do What We Do?

A letter we recently received explains perfectly: "The power of a phone call can make the difference for a life — I am a product of the work you do. May God bless you and always guide you to push forward… because babies like me are on the other side of your hard work."  [Birthright.org, Winter 2014]     No woman should have to be left without options. No woman should be forced to seek an abortion when there is help available. Find out how you can help pregnant & parenting students here —...

What Happens When a Life Is Saved in 1969?

  45 years ago, a scared pregnant woman walked through Birthright’s door, thinking abortion was the solution – and found help in making a workable plan for herself and her child. Months later, her son’s tiny footprints were inked into his baby book. And soon he was off and toddling on those little feet And they carried him up the steps onto the school bus And they sped him to first base in time to hear, “Safe!” And they got him across his college campus in time for class And they eventually walked side-by-side down the aisle with his bride. Before long, he was marveling at his newborn’s tiny hands grasping his finger And playing peek-a-boo And practicing piano And experimenting with lipstick and nail polish And accepting her diploma And holding her bouquet as he walked her up the aisle to meet her groom. And one day soon she’ll make him a grandfather – and make a great-grandmother of the worried young woman who found Birthright 45 years ago. Life is beautiful. [Birthright.org, Winter...

Impact of Abortion on Premature Birth of Future Children (2013)

Prematurity, defined as a birth prior to 37 weeks gestational age, is one of the most challenging public health issues in America. Nearly 12 percent of all babies born in the United States are born preterm. In North Carolina 10.4 percent of births, 12,750 babies, were born preterm in 2011. Preterm birth may be preceded by early rupture of membranes or preterm labor. This leads to hospitalizations of days or weeks for mothers as doctors attempt to try and prevent an early delivery. In the case of a very preterm birth (VPB), defined as an infant born at less than 32 weeks gestation, hospitalizations from 4-16 weeks can be expected. While keeping vigil at the bedside, many mothers will see their baby have a breathing tube placed, live on a ventilator for days to weeks, intravenous lines inserted in the belly button and veins, and feedings delivered through feeding tubes. A mother may watch helplessly as her baby develops life-threatening infections or conditions requiring surgery. After days or weeks of struggling, this heroic infant may be one of the 20 percent that does not survive. As staggering as the emotional and social toll of this epidemic is, equally devastating is the financial impact. The estimated annual cost for care attributable to preterm birth in the United States is $26 billion.1 Over the last two decades, the percentage of preterm deliveries has risen 20 percent.2 Annually in the U.S., 80,000 births are classified as VPB. VPBs constitute two percent of all births 3, and in developed nations, VPB is the leading cause of death in newborns. While medical advances have...

Expert: Pain at 8 Weeks

Unborn Baby Experiences Pain 8 Weeks After Conception "The neural circuitry responsible for the most primitive response to pain, the spinal reflex, is in place by 8 weeks of development. This is the earliest point at which the fetus experiences pain in any capacity. And a fetus responds just as humans at later stages of development respond, by withdrawing from the painful stimulus." Maureen L. Condic, Ph.D., University of Utah, School of Medicine, Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, before the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives, 23 May 2013 This Congressional hearing took place prior to the U.S. House of Representatives passing the "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" which would ban abortions after 20 weeks (with narrow exceptions) in all 50 states.

Resources: Miscellaneous Abortion

  Many people blame the economy; but they ignore how abortion has adversely affected the economy. As a result of removing that staggering number of lives, the population – and tax base – are far smaller. Abortion has destroyed not only one generation of Americans but a second as well — people who should be boosting the fertility rate in their childbearing years now, who were victims of abortions in the 1970s and 1980s. In total, more than 55 million Americans are been destroyed by abortions and millions more were never born because their parents were aborted. If we assume a fairly steady rate of abortions since the last year of reporting (2008), then there have been almost 56M aborted babies in this country [2012] – nearly the population of California and Texas combined. Given an average federal tax revenue of approximately $8500/citizen, and assuming that those aborted between 1975 and 1990 (approx 23,782,000 lives, based on Guttmacher estimates) would now be productive taxpayers, the U.S. economy is losing roughly $202 BILLION PER YEAR in tax payments as of 2012.

Cost too much to fix for-profit abortion building

I read in the paper that the owner of an abortion mill said he was really concerned about the new law that will raise the standard of care to protect women's health and safety. This owner said it would cost too much for him to fix his building to comply with the safety standards required by the bill. Ohhh… that is so sad… Can you imagine any other type of business that makes $1+ Million/year whining that they cannot afford to make upgrades or required health/fire remodeling?? Would anyone care?  If they cannot make the changes required, they don’t need to be in business!! Any FOR-PROFIT business can afford changes… isn’t that the POINT of being a for-profit business – to make a profit that goes back into the business to keep building it???  …? I guess these abortion industrialists never took Business 101… Besides that, these Darwinists want ‘survival of the fittest’ for everyone except...

Earth (Is for People) Day

From the beginning Earth Day has been anti-people. The very first Earth Day, held in 1970, had as its slogan, “People Pollute.” This didn’t merely mean that people tend to litter.  It meant that people themselves are a form of pollution. The Founder of Earth Day, Dixie Cup magnate Hugh Moore, called this “popullution,” short for population pollution. We celebrated Monday, 22 April, not as “Earth Day” but as “Earth is for People Day.” To celebrate, Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute, keynoted an online conference, speaking on “Save the Earth: Get Rid of the People? The Inhumanity of Earth Day.” http://onlineapologeticsconference.com/ We at PRI are conservationists, of course, like all reasonable people. We believe that it is good for humans to care for their surroundings and not waste the gifts of nature. But we also recognize that human beings are part of nature, and human life, too, must be protected from conception to natural death. Join with us in celebrating, “Earth is for People Day.” [Population Research Institute, PRI, 18 Apr...

Artificial Estrogens as Carcinogens & Environmental/Water Pollutants

ARTIFICIAL ESTROGENS AS CARCINOGENS & ENVIRONMENTAL /WATER POLLUTANTS Most chemical 'contraceptives' such as many types of The Pill, The Shot, the Patch, Norplant, Depo-Provera contain artificial estrogens (female hormones) which are classed by World Health Organization (WHO) as carcinogenic compounds — they can cause cancer — http://www.physiciansforlife.org/world-health-org-declares-the-combined-oral-contraceptive-to-be-a-recognized-carcinogen-905/ More and more studies are confirming that artificial estrogens are NOT REMOVED by city water treatment plants; so estrogens continue to collect in our water supplies… they are adversely affecting some forms of fish and other wildlife… Estrogens could have an emasculating effect on men who ingest too many of them. Of course, these studies are NOT politically-correct; but if you search for "estrogens environment" you can find plenty of items from university studies,...
