 ACLU will attempt to win taxpayer funding for abortions allegedly performed for medical reasons. The ACLU claims that denial of Medicaid coverage for what it terms “medically necessary” abortions threatens women’s health /violates their rights. But pro-life leaders say that the term “medically necessary abortions” is just another way of saying “abortion on demand.” In reality, abortion can threaten not only a woman’s health but also a woman’s life. A woman who undergoes an abortion runs the risk of experiencing a perforated uterus, sterility, depression, and possibly breast cancer. “We know of many healthy babies born in Georgia to mothers who were treated for serious medical problems during their pregnancy,” said Caryl Swift, president of Georgia Right to Life.
