Abortion Doesn’t Prevent, It CAUSES Subsequent Premature Birth

“We can now admit that surgical abortion increases risk of subsequent premature delivery BECAUSE SURGICAL ABORTION IS ‘OBSOLETE’.”

There’s just one problem—Surgical abortion is not ‘obsolete’, it is still used for more than 75% of abortions.

Chemical Abortion accounts for 18% to 22% of induced abortions. Its opposite,
Surgical Abortion, accounts for 77% to 81% of induced abortions.

Preterm Birth Linked to Induced Abortion

A $200 million per year “Philanthropic Charitable” Foundation Promotes ABORTION as “The Cure” for Premature Birth—a “Cure” not merely worse than the disease, Abortion CAUSES the Disease.

The Medical Research Establishment is so heavily invested in abortion that it is willing to undergo Derangement of its Fundamental Scientific Objectivity rather than contradict the ‘abortion is safe’ dogma.

PLOSMedicine

It’s as if someone blew the all-clear.

A recent study found a “strong independent relationship” between a history of abortion and the risk of a subsequent preterm birth. For the pro-life community, this comes as a vindication of many years of work to draw attention to the link, despite a lack of attention from the medical community and outright denial from pro-abortion advocates.

However, the study authors attribute the risk to abortion methods now considered obsolete.

According to the study published by open-source journal PLOS One, which analyzed data from Scotland, induced abortion was indeed linked with preterm birth, with the risk increasing in relation to the number of previous abortions. However, the study found that the association decreased over the study period between 1980 and 2008. The authors speculated that this could be due to the use of more modern abortion methods less likely to cause cervical trauma, particularly medication abortion[, i.e., RU-486].

Study Shows Abortion Raises Risk of Premature Birth 69%, More Abortions Raise It Even More—Dr. Pim Ankum of the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam, analyzed 21 cohort studies covering almost 2 million women. Ankum found that D&Cs performed for abortion or miscarriage increase the risk of a subsequent premature birth (under 37 weeks) by 29%, and the risk of very premature birth (under 32 weeks) by 69%.

 

The authors posit that the risk of preterm birth was increased in women who had surgical abortions without cervical pre-treatment. They hypothesized that the use of mechanical methods to dilate the cervix might cause trauma that could increase the difficulty of carrying a pregnancy to full term.

The authors conclude by recommending that the continued modernization of abortion methods “may be an effective long-term strategy to reduce global rates of preterm birth.”

On the one hand, it’s a surprising about-face: as recently as less than [a year] ago, Robin McMarty of RH Reality Check claimed, “There is no major medical group in the [US] that claims abortion causes preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies.” This was a paraphrase of the same assertion previously made by Paige Johnson, vice president of external affairs for Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina, and echoed by other pro-abortion groups.

On the other hand, this report and its recommendations manage to finally admit the existence of the link while attempting to further the pro-abortion cause: first, by fixing the blame squarely on outdated practices, and second, by advocating for increased use of more modern methods.

The American College of Pediatricians Warns of the Abortion Breast-Cancer Link (ABC)

by Dr. Susan Berry | 17 April 2015

In a press release last week, the American College of Pediatricians urged health care providers to educate young women about the strong link between abortion and breast cancer.

In 2013, Dr. Rebecca Johnson, a cancer specialist at Seattle Children’s Hospital, released results of a study that demonstrated that the number of advanced breast cancer cases has increased among younger women, aged 25-39 years. After an analysis of 34 years worth of data from many countries, Johnson and her colleagues found that induced abortion was likely a causal–not correlational–risk factor for the development of breast cancer.

MailUKabcThe pediatricians group also revisits the fact that studies from China, India, and Romania show incidence of breast cancer increasing as the number of abortions increase, with a “dose effect” demonstrating “an increasing risk of breast cancer with each subsequent abortion.” Continue reading

Kansas first state to ban second-trimester abortion procedure critics call ‘dismemberment’

April 2, 2015: Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback answers questions from reporters about pension issues during a news conference at the Statehouse in Topeka, Kan.


Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a bill making his state the first in the nation to ban a controversial second-trimester abortion procedure that critics describe as dismembering a fetus.

The new law, which takes effect July 1, was drafted by the National Right to Life Committee. The group hailed the signing of the bill Tuesday and is aiming to pass such a law in several other states next.

“The Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act is the first of what we hope will be many state laws banning dismemberment abortions,” group president Carol Tobias said in a statement. “This law has the power to transform the landscape of abortion policy in the United States.”

Already, similar measures have been introduced in Missouri, Oklahoma and South Carolina.

The Kansas law would ban what’s known as a dilation and evacuation procedure and redefine it as “dismemberment.” Doctors now no longer can use forceps, clamps, scissors or similar instruments on a fetus to remove it from the womb in pieces. Continue reading

An Abortion Business was fined $77 for a Patient Death; The Average Animal Shelter Fine: $5,305

Abortion Clinic That allegedly Killed Woman
and Failed Inspection Just Gets $77 Fine

Dog Pounds Are Better Regulated
Than Abortion Businesses

John Jansen April 3, 2015 | Chicago, Illinois | LifeNews

Imagine you run a shoddy abortion clinic that amasses a $36,000 fine by your state’s health department after an 18-year old patient dies.

WomensAidCenter

“Women’s Aid Center” Abortion Business “Providing the Support and Care You Deserve”

You file for bankruptcy, but your case is dismissed.

Then, you close out your bank account, dissolve your old company, change your name, and move to a different location.

When the state comes calling, you say the old company doesn’t exist anymore, so the state’s out of luck.

You couldn’t get away with that, could you?

Believe it or not, the Pro-Life Action League has learned that an Illinois Appellate Court has just decided [PDF] that a Chicago abortion clinic can do just that by requiring the owner to pay a mere $77.

Abortion Clinic Owner Felt “Victimized” by “Unfair” Health Department Inspection

To understand how things got to this point, we have to back up a few years.

On September 6-7, 2011, inspectors with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) visited the Women’s Aid Clinic abortion facility, located in the northern Chicago suburb of Lincolnwood, for the first time in 15 years.

What they found shocked them. According to the IDPH:

The condition of the facility has deteriorated to a point where “the public interest, health, safety, or welfare imperatively requires” that the facility’s license be suspended on an emergency basis. (210 ILCS 5/10f(c)).

The full report from the IDPH’s 2011 inspection of Women’s Aid Clinic is posted here [PDF]. (It’s also worth noting that Women’s Aid owner Larisa Rozansky later told an AP reporter that she felt “victimized by the surprise inspection,” which she called “unfair.”)

Six weeks later, on October 21, 2011 the state assessed [PDF] Women’s Aid Clinic with a fine of $36,000 for a host of serious violations, including failure to perform CPR on 18-year old Antonesha Ross, who died following an abortion. The state also suspended the license of Women’s Aid to operate as a pregnancy termination specialty center (PTSC) and prohibited the facility from performing surgical abortions—although it is still permitted to perform medication abortions.

Knowing a fine was coming, Women’s Aid owner Larisa Rozansky filed for bankruptcy [PDF] on October 10, but her case was dismissed a few weeks later.

And although Rozansky wrote a letter to the IDPH stating [PDF] that Women’s Aid Clinic would be closing on November 10, 2011, Women’s Aid Clinic continued to advertise surgical abortions and do business under the very name “Women’s Aid Clinic” for several months thereafter.

In January 2012, activists working with the Pro-Life Action League notified the IDPH that Women’s Aid was continuing to advertise surgical abortions. Following a cease and desist letter from the the IDPH’s William Bell in March 2012, Women’s Aid eventually took it down from its website.

Owner Claims Abortion Clinic “Does Not Exist”

In that letter [PDF], the IDPH also reminded Rozansky that if she did not pay the $36,000 fine, the matter would be turned over to the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. Rozansky responded with a letter [PDF] saying that “Women’s Aid Clinic does not exist and does not have any assets or associated bank accounts.” Continue reading

Huge Breakthrough Made to Treat Brain Cancer That Prompted Brittany Maynard to Kill Herself

Steven Ertelt | Life News | April 1, 2015

Scientists have announced a huge breakthrough that could have provided help for Brittany Maynard, the cancer patient who received national attention over her plan to kill herself under Oregon’s assisted suicide law. Cancer patients and pro-life groups tried to talk her out of the decision but Maynard said she didn’t want to deal with the pain and other effects from her brain cancer.

After suffering from severe headaches, Brittany Maynard found out she had stage II glioblastoma multiforme and had up to ten years to live. However, after she had surgery, doctors found out that she had the most deadly form of brain cancer, stage IV glioblastoma multiforme. The cancer usually kills its victims in a matter of months.

After her diagnosis, Brittany decided that she wanted to move from her California home to Oregon so that she could have access to the “death with dignity” prescription.

Now, the most recent episode of 60 Minutes explored the ‘near miraculous’ treatment regime that has actually brought remissions for Gliobalstoma cancer, (Brittany Maynard’s cancer) as recently as November proclaimed to be “hopeless and incurable.”

“This amazing story is both groundbreaking and tragic,” said Clinical Psychologist Dr. Mark Hoffman, spokesman for California Seniors Against Suicide. “If Brittany Maynard, who had been convinced to end it all, would have just waited until Spring the amazing hope now being offered in this landmark study would have opened a new world of hope to this attractive and vibrant, yet clearly depressed young woman.”

The story by 60 Minutes reporter Scott Pelley, is available here. The unheard-of treatment regime actually uses polio to attack the cancer. The body’s immune system then attacks the ‘infected’ cancer. Clinical trials have now been refined so that the most recent participants have become ‘cancer clear’ and are in remission.

Maynard’s condition and her request for suicide in California has become a centerpiece for a concerted, mediagenic focus on changing the law. Continue reading
