At the request of my dear readers, even those of you who disagree with my views, I present to you facts on abortion:
There are 46 million abortions obtained per year, 20 million of them illegally (AGI)
Of course there are complications from surgery, including, unfortunately death.
An abortion induced during the first 8 weeks of pregnancy has a death rate of 1/500,000 (AGI)
An abortion induced between 16 and 20 weeks of pregnancy has a death rate of 1/27,000 (Id.)
An abortion induced at 21 weeks or higher has a death rate of 1/8,000 (Id.)
Hysterectomies have a mortality rate of 1.5/1,000 (NIH)
Overall maternal mortality rate is 6-22 deaths per 100,000 live births (source)
13% of the 585,000 cases of maternal mortality are due to unsafe abortion (source)
Before abortion was legalized, 20% of pregnancy-related complications (according to a sample) were due to abortions (source)
Illegal abortions raise the maternal mortality rate (source)
That’s all I have for now.
