ABORTION - the statistics and facts that we are not told

Abortion Methods, Facts and Figures and other links on this site

For many people, abortion is more of an idea than a hard reality. Often the most stalwart abortion proponents know little about how many abortions are actually performed in the United States, or what the principal abortion methods are. Learning the facts about abortion can lead to a change of heart about the morality of abortion.

Many of the statistics in this chapter are taken from the Guttmacher Institute, the research arm of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S. The Guttmacher Institute has been compiling data on abortion since 1968. Since they favor abortion, the data they provide will have more credibility to those who are pro-choice than data from a pro-life source.

Another important source of abortion statistics is the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that has been compiling public health statistics since 1946. The CDC tracks the numbers on abortions performed each year based on data provided by each state.

How many abortions have been performed in the united States since it was legalized nationwide?
Every 26 seconds a preborn baby dies in America.

[As of 2008] Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, there have been approximately 53 million abortions performed in the United States.

What percentage of pregnancies end in abortion?

About 23% of all pregnancies end in abortion in the United States. There were 1.21 million abortions in 2005 compared to 4.14 million live births. [That means that almost 1 in 4 pregnancies end in abortion folks! ]

44.3% of pregnancies in New York City alone end in abortion.

What is the Race/Ethnicity of the Women having Abortions?

According to the Guttmacher Institute, abortion breaks down along racial/ethnic lines as follows:
White: 34%;  Black: 37%;  Hispanic: 22%;  Other: 7%

While blacks and Hispanics comprise only 28% of the population, they account for nearly 60% of all abortions. A black woman is three times as likely as a white woman to have an abortion during her lifetime; a Hispanic woman is 2.5 times more likely to abort than a white woman.

Margaret Sanger's Negro Project and
Barack Obama's Planned Parenthood

Words From Margaret Sanger

[The Truth about]
Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood

As you read on you will soon discover that I have primarily relied on material which can be readily found in books, audio-taped interviews, and public news sources. If you take the time to check my references, you will soon discover that there really are those whohave publicly advocated the elimination of "human weeds" and "the cleansing of society."Indeed, to this very day your tax money is used to finance Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by Margaret Sanger. During the 1930s Margaret Sanger openly supported the Nazi plan for genetic engineering of the German population, and the propagation of a "super race." In Planned Parenthood's 1985 "Annual Report" leaders of that organization proclaimed that they were, "Proud of our past, and planning for our future."

How could anyone possibly claim to be proud of the organization founded by MargaretSanger when history records that she wrote of the necessity of: "the extermination of 'human weeds' ...the 'cessation of charity,' ... the segregation of 'morons, misfits, and the maladjusted,' and ... the sterilization of  'genetically inferior races."

Margaret Sanger published "The Birth Control Review." In that magazine she openly supported the "infanticide program" promoted by Nazi Germany in the 1930s, and publicly championed Adolf Hitler's goal of Aryan white supremacy. In the years prior to World War II Margaret Sanger commissioned Ernst Rudin, a member of the Nazi Party, and director of the dreaded German Medical Experimentation Programs, to serve as anadvisor to her organization. In his excellent book "Killer Angel," George Grant chronicles the life and writings of Margaret Sanger, and painstakingly documents Sanger's plans for the genetic engineering of the human race. George Grant noted that in the 1920s Margaret Sanger wrote "The Pivot of Civilization" in which she called for: "The 'elimination of 'human weeds,' for the 'cessation of charity' because it prolonged the lives of the unfit, for the segregation of 'morons, misfits, and the maladjusted,' and for the sterilization of genetically inferior races."

According to George Grant, Margaret Sanger believed that the unfit should not be allowed to reproduce. Accordingly, she opened a birth control clinic in: "The Brownsville section of New York, an area populated by newly immigrated Slavs, Latin's, Italians, and Jews. She targeted the 'unfit' for her crusade to 'save the planet.

Nineteen years later, in 1939, Margaret Sanger organized her "Negro project," a program designed to eliminate members of what she believed to be an "inferior race."  Margaret Sanger justified her proposal because she believed that: "The masses of Negroes ...particularly in the South, still breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that the increase among Negroes, even more than among whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit..."

Margaret Sanger then went on to reveal that she intended to hire three or four Colored Ministers "to travel to various black enclaves to propagandize for birth control." Shewrote: "The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the Minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

As Margaret Sanger's organization grew in power, influence, and acceptance, she began to write of the necessity of targeting religious groups for destruction as well, believing that the "dysgenic races" should include "Fundamentalists and Catholics" in addition to"blacks, Hispanics, (and) American Indians."

As the years went by, Margaret Sanger became increasingly obsessed with her Occultic beliefs. Along with her acceptance of the occult, she became increasingly hostile to both Christianity and the American precepts of individual freedom under God. Her distaste for America can be seen in her writings when she wrote: " Birth control appeals to the advanced radical because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian churches. I look forward to seeing humanity free someday of the tyranny of Christianity no less than Capitalism."

Margaret Sanger eventually embraced not only communism but theosophy as well.

What is theosophy? It is a covert, Occultic religion based upon the repudiation of God and the worship of Lucifer. In modern-day America, theosophy is one of the most powerful hidden (occult) forces working behind the scenes in New York City, Washington D.C., and across our nation today.

How many times have you been told that Adolf Hitler killed 6 million Jews in the Holocaust? What you probably have never been told, however, is the segment of the Holocaust tragedy recorded by Professor Norman Cohn in his historical account of the Jewish Holocaust, "Warrant for Genocide." Professor Cohn chronicled the dark days of World War II, noting: Only about a third of the civilians killed by the Nazis and their accomplices were Jews ...Other peoples were marked out for decimation, subjugation,and enslavement, and the civilian losses of some of these (countries - Ed.) amounted to11 per cent to 12 per cent of the total population."

If Professor Cohn's figures are accurate - and I feel certain that they are, because other Jewish researchers have come up with similar figures - then why haven't the Christians of America been allowed to learn the fact that in addition to the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis, somewhere between 7 and 12 million non-Jews were also ruthlessly liquidated in Hitler's Germany? I believe this information has been intentionally suppressed because those who were killed were largely Christians, and the covert forces which control the reality of the American public today do not want the followers of Jesus Christ in our nation to awaken to their peril ... until it is far too late. Hitler hated not only Jews and Judaism, he also hated Christians and Christianity as well.

Why was that? Because Adolf Hitler, just like Margaret Sanger, was a disciple of theosophy and of Madame Blavatsky, the founder of a religion that worshipped Lucifer. Accordingly, both Margaret Sanger and Adolf Hitler were energized by the same "dark, spiritual forces."

The fact that most of our citizens have never heard of Madame Blavatsky, theosophy, or that two of theosophy's most ardent disciples were Adolf Hitler and Margaret Sanger clearly reflects the degree of control that exists over what the American people have been allowed to learn about the occultic forces at work in our nation today.

As a researcher on the subject of the occult, I regularly receive letters and publications from the Lucis Trust. The Lucis Trust of today is the modern-day extension of the "Lucifer Publishing Company," an organization founded by Alice Bailey during the early years of the twentieth century. Alice Bailey was a disciple of Madame Blavatsky and the nominal leader of the Theosophical Society between the early 1900s and the late 1920s. Because the name "Lucifer" had such a bad connotation in those days, Alice Bailey changed the name of her organization from "The Lucifer Publishing Company" to "The Lucis Trust." The nature and beliefs of her organization, however, have always remained the same. The Lucis Trust of today is one of the major front groups through which theosophy works to influence life here in America. The supernatural powers that still energize The Lucis Trust today certainly come from the same dark, spiritual forces that energized Madame Blavatsky, Adolf Hitler, and Margaret Sanger in generations past. Publications from The Lucis Trust regularly refer to "The Plan" for humanity that has been established by "The Hierarchy." Part of that plan is inscribed on the great granite pillars of the American Stonehenge in Elberton, Georgia ... "The Georgia Guidestones." [View Part 1- section 1]

A full discussion on the subjects of population control and occultism is far beyond the scope of this short monograph. Full documentation on these subjects will be found in my soon-to-be-published book, "None Dare Call It Genocide."

AFTER-BIRTH ABORTION - people are already chomping on the bit to push us further down the slippery slope

Life a Burden? After-birth abortion outrage sparked in UK

Medical Journalists Call for ‘After-Birth Abortions’, Say Infants ‘Aren’t People’
Anthony Gucciardi
March 1, 2012

Stating that newborn babies ‘aren’t people’ and it is therefore acceptable to kill them, two ‘ethicists’ writing for the peer-reviewed Journal of Medical Ethics are now calling for after-birth abortions. The writers, who worked with Australian universities in the construction of their paper, say that newborn babies simply do not have a “moral right to life.” Furthermore, the paper goes on to state that the babies have no right to live as they do not offer “at least basic value” that would represent a loss.

Study authors Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, both from the University of Melbourne, state in their paper that “after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.” They go on to say that while it is infanticide, they prefer not to call it that. Instead, they prefer the term ‘after-birth abortion’ — a term that avoids the true labeling of the proposed technique.

Authors of the paper write that simply being a human isn’t something that grants ‘a right to life’. It appears the paper authors believe that they are the ones who are to determine whether or not a human can live or die. Under this train of thought, then these ‘after-birth’ abortions are not limited to infants. In fact, if being a human does not grant a ‘right to life’, then so-called ‘ethicists’ could soon state that everyone with a disability no longer has the right to live. Does this sound familiar? From 1929 to 1974, the United States began forcibly sterilizing individuals they deemed to not be ‘fit to live’.

During this time period, around 60,000 people were forcibly sterilized nationwide under the admitted eugenics program. The authors of this paper are now recommending that certain human beings simply do not deserve to live, in the same manner of the U.S. government in 1929. The authors even take it a step further, going from sterilizations to full-blown murders — genocide on a larger scale.

The paper states:
Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’. [...] Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life. Indeed, many humans are not considered subjects of a right to life…”
The news comes just after the Euthanasia Coaster hit the mainstream and alternative media, a proposed rollercoaster design that would ‘euthanize and execute’ its passengers. The creator of the coaster, Julijonas Urbonas, says the machine is engineered to take the life of a human being with “elegance and euphoria.” [This is for real ! read article and view video at the above link.  I cannot help but think about what Hitler would think of it.]

The coaster even met similar scientific reception as the concept of after-birth abortions, as the transhumanism science organization “HUMAN+” displayed the concept of the Euthanasia Coaster at the Science Gallery in Dublin from April through June 2011.

My Son Chose To Live: An Anti-Abortion Story

I want to start by saying that I strongly believed in pro-choice before the birth of my son. Not until I held him for the first time, was it even possible for me to understand what pro-choice really meant.

My son deserved to live, from the very moment of conception, and the reason why I'm so passionate about the subject is, not only did several people close to me encourage abortion, but it was also a very real consideration for myself.

I am so thankful I went with my heart, and I thank you for taking the time to watch.

Exploring 12 common myths about legal abortion
Special to Florida Baptist Witness
Published January 17, 2008

In the past decade, a growing mountain of scientific facts, books and testimonies have helped unravel a three decades' assault on unborn life and the victimization of frightened, expectant mothers. However, it appears many Christians are still at a loss at how to speak from a pro-life position to people who disregard biblical principles.

If our biblical references are rejected, do we know enough about this overwhelmingly strong evidence to address someone's pro-choice viewpoint? We need solid, statistical—what the world calls "logical"— information to help change the hearts of people with other worldviews.

And it must be done while showing God's love and understanding to post-abortive women and those considering abortion. This vital information could lighten their load, help them make better choices, and change their future.

"Legal abortion is safer than 'back alley' abortions."

Abortion advocates claim there were "5,000 to 10,000 deaths per year" from dangerous "back alley" abortions shortly before its legalization, according to Concerned Women for America. But the real
number is far less.

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, is the creator of the phrase "pro-choice" and founder of the abortion rights group National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). He was also for a time the director of the Center for Reproductive and Sexual Health New York’s largest abortion clinic. Nathanson has written that he was responsible for more than 75,000 abortions throughout his pro-choice career.
He reversed his position some years ago in favor of life after seeing the convincing evidence of humanity in ultrasounds. He admitted in his 1981 book, Aborting America, that those back alley figures were falsified—pulled out of thin air. The true number was closer to 500 per year. But, he said of the falsified numbers: "In our revolution it was a useful figure." Now vilified by his old comrades and ignored by mainstream press, Nathanson has a hard time being heard above the pro-choice din.

Is legalized abortion physically safer? Carol Everett, former owner of several legal abortion clinics, exposed the safety myth in her book Blood Money, stating abortions were performed at her clinics with a high rate of complication. One woman was killed or maimed per month, totaling 12 women per year.

Everett's book reveals that hospitals cover for abortionists by listing other reasons for surgery and death. And according to research gathered by various foundations including the Elliott Institute, the accidental cutting of a mother's colon, hemor­rhaging, body-wide sepsis and death are commonplace.

If abortion advocates really care about "safe legal abortions," they wouldn't defend the availability of RU-486 (mifeprestone). This pill induces a miscarriage as a means of abortion in the privacy of one's own home, without medical assistance. According to FDA records released under the Free­dom of Information Act, as of May 2006 there were at least 600 nationally documented cases of serious complications and six deaths in the U.S. Seven deaths have been reported in other countries.

"Abortion must stay legal for rape, incest, and the health of the mother."

Pro-choice activists would have us believe most women choosing abortion are victims of random violence or abuse by a family member. But in surveys throughout the years of America's legalized abortion reported by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, these incidents generally account for less than 2% of all abortions.

Dr. Tiller's Abortion Records Exposed

Dr. Paul McHugh takes an inside look at the records of the notorious late-abortionist. For more information on what is happening in Kansas go to

This means 98 percent of all abortions occur due to em­barrassment, social or family pressure and inconvenience after consensual sexual encounters. According to a Guttmacher Institute study (a former arm of Planned Parenthood, not affiliated with any religious organization), most women gave the following reasons for their abortion:

• economic factors

• don't want the life-changing responsibility of a child

• relationship problems

In the decades since legalization, the rate of abortion has increased 25 percent among older women concentrating on careers, and couples who don't want any more children or who are making engineered choices about the sex of their child.

Concerning the health of the mother, Thomas Murphy Goodwin, an obstetrician, wrote in First Things Magazine in 1996:

Certain conditions that can be diagnosed in advance are associated with risk of maternal mortality... [he goes on to name several medical conditions]. Taken altogether, abortions performed for these
conditions make up a barely calculable fraction of the total abortions performed in the United States, but they are extremely important because they have been used to validate the idea of abortion as a whole.

Goodwin has impeccable credentials: Assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Southern California's Women's Hospital, and director of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the Hospital of the Good Samaritan in Los Angeles.

The number of maternal deaths has not been lowered by legalized abortion, but by modern medical techniques in pre-natal and post- natal care, advanced surgery procedures and improved sanitation practices at childbirth.


"The pro-choice movement protects women."

The survival of this myth is ironic for several reasons. First, Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers across the country have been found advising minor girls to conceal the names of grown men who impregnated them so the men would not be prosecuted. This is statutory rape - and yet an average of  91 percent of these abortion providers are not complying with laws to report sexual predators according to a report by Life Dynamics of Denton, Texas.

Planned Parenthood has sued in several states to conceal their records from investigation, according to an article in SBC Life in Jan. 2003. Is this about protecting women?

Another irony is the phrase "pro-choice" itself: When interviewed, many crisis pregnancy center counselors and volunteers working with post-abortive women say the remark they've heard most is: "I felt I had no choice." In a survey published by the American Family Association Journal in 2002:

56% felt pressured by other people or circumstances.

84% stated they would have chosen otherwise if different options had
been presented.

40% were still hoping for other options while at the abortion clinic
in a confused state of mind, but didn't get any (abortion clinics are
not required to present other choices in every state).

In Everett's book Blood Money, she reveals being paid $25 for each abortion she sold when she worked for other clinics, and was impressed with the amount of money to be made. "We did not discuss alternatives to abortion, Everett said. "Our counselors were paid generously to sell a product, and that's what they did."

Poor sanitation at clinics threatens women's safety

Research shows that abortion clinics have lower sanitation requirements than veterinary hospitals.

In a 2003 testimony before the Florida House Subcommittee on Health Standards, Randy Armstrong, a Tampa obstetrician and gynecologist, stated that he cares for as many as ten women per month with complications from abortions, according to an April 17, 2003, article in the Florida Baptist

Yet, before the same subcommittee, the Florida Chapter of Planned Parenthood along with the National Organization for Women testified against cleanliness legislation ! ! ! ?

"A woman needs an unencumbered chance in life."

With so few unwanted pregnancies being due to rape or incest, a person's real choice for his or her life path—male or female—lies in choosing to say "NO" to sex. But teenagers and single adults experience great peer pressure to have illicit relations. It is glorified in movies and on television, where there seem to be no consequences. And they have liberal sex educators, trained by the National Education Association, advising them to "try sex out to discover who they are." ! ! !

As a result, one of the latest trends is "hooking up," which takes place in middle school through college. Students are forsaking dating for group activities, after which one of the group approaches another to "hook up" (have sex with no commitment). With condoms being openly promoted in some sex education classes, this has proven disastrous.

Condoms fail in preventing pregnancy an average 13-18 percent of the time at best, and no existing form of birth control absolutely prevents HIV/AIDS or HPV (Human Papilloma Virus).

In particular, HPV can be contracted in areas not covered by a condom, often occurs silently with no symptoms and is responsible for 90 percent of all cervical cancer cases. Combine casual "hooking up" with reliance on condoms and we have a deadly situation for our young people, and a flourishing abortion industry.

"The pro-life movement condones violence against abortion clinics."

A main tactic of verbal assault is: "If you can't prove your point or justify your actions, just try to make the other guy look bad."

Abortion providers and advocates use this myth to draw attention away from the real violence perpetrated upon women and girls; that is abortion itself and the death of more than 43 million unborn babies who had no voice of their own.

Since legalizing abortion in America, there have been less than a handful of murders of abortion doctors or workers in their clinics. Although very tragic and we mustn't minimize it, our opponents make it look like this happens every day with the support of religious conservatives. People must be made aware that true Christians don't condone vigilante violence, and that we believe evil will receive due vengeance from God  (Romans 12:19).

Michael F. Griffin was found guilty of the murder of Dr. David Gunn and was sentenced to life in prison.
Paul Jennings Hill was executed on September 3, 2003 for the murder of Dr. John Britton and James Barrett, a clinic escort.
John Salvi was arrested and confessed to the killings of 2 receptionists, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols. He died in prison and guards found his body under his bed with a plastic garbage bag tied around his head.
Eric Robert Rudolph killed (bombing) Robert Sanderson, an off-duty police officer who worked as a security guard at an abortion clinic .  He killed 2 other people in another bombing. He received two life sentences .
James Kopp. Kopp was convicted of the murder of  Dr. Barnett Slepian. he received a life sentence.
Scott Roeder killed Dr. George Tiller . He received a life sentence.

"It's only done in the first few weeks, so it's just a blob of tissue."

Many people still think abortion is only done in the first trimester. But soon after the Roe v. Wade decision came Doe v. Bolton. In this secondary case, the Supreme Court ruled that abortion can be obtained up until the day of delivery, on-demand by any mother for any reason anywhere in the U.S. This cannot be done through a "harmless" suctioning procedure. New methods of abortion were specifically devised to extract full-size babies-and it happens all the time.

Today's ultrasound technology has just about destroyed the theory that it is just a "blob."

Therefore, abortion clinics avidly fight against laws requiring that they show ultrasounds, and their advocates claim the majority of abortions take place through only the 20th week of gestation (five
months). A look at the baby's development within that period shows:

18-21 days from conception: Beating hearts are heard in the womb.

40 days: Brain waves are detectable.

8-10 weeks: Fully formed tiny bodies with fingers, toes and fingerprints are visible.

12 weeks: Vocal chords are complete. The brain is fully formed.

16 weeks: Five to eight inches tall, the child can grasp with his hands and kick with feet.

20 weeks: Can hear mother's voice and possibly survive if born now. Can suck its thumb, squint eyes from light. Sex organs are visible on sonogram. Mother feels movement.

Don't be fooled. Late-term and partial-birth abortions are not "rarely" done for "the mother's health." According to the Physicians for Life orga­nization, as of Dec., 2004, approximately 12,000-17,000 unborn humans, between 5-9 months' gestation were aborted each year; the Center for Disease Control averages between 33 to 46 late-term abortions every day.

Ron Fitzsimmons, former executive director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers, admitted in 1997 that partial birth abortion was not a rare occurrence, and that he had "lied through his teeth" (his own words). The 1997 New York Times story said he estimated the method was used 3- 5,000 times annually, adding:

"In the vast majority of cases, the procedure is performed on a healthy mother with a healthy fetus that is 20 weeks or more along."

By 1996, partial birth abortion (in which a viable, even full-term baby is partially delivered and then aborted through a gruesome procedure) was very prevalent. It is such a heinous practice that several physicians representing PHACT, Physicians' Ad Hoc Coalition for Truth (more than 500 doctors including former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop) wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal entitled "Partial Birth Abortion is Bad Medicine":

We are the physicians who, on a daily basis, treat pregnant women and their babies...We can no longer remain silent while abortion activists, the media and even the President continue to repeat false medical claims...." "Contrary to what abortion activists would have us believe, partial-birth abortion is never medically indicated to protect a woman's health or her fertility. In fact, the opposite is true: The procedure can pose a significant and immediate threat to both the pregnant woman's health and fertility.

It took until 2003 for this to be entered into testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives. President Bush signed Congress' Partial Birth Abortion Ban that same year. Although the Supreme Court upheld that ban, pro-choice groups still attempt to overturn the ban in the name of "women's rights."

"The fetus feels no pain."

The baby's pain receptors begin in the seventh week of pregnancy. The thalamus (brain portion receiving signals from the nervous system) starts forming in the fifth week. In the United Kingdom and most of Europe, an abortion cannot be performed past 24 weeks of pregnancy without pain killers for the unborn child.

The Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act of 2005 specifies that women who seek abortions must be notified their unborn baby may experience pain. This was a big blow to pro-choice groups and abortion clinics. Some form of Unborn Child Pain Awareness bills have been introduced in approximately 19 states. Unfortunately, most still don't call for pain medication.

"The mother feels no pain and walks away unharmed."

We've already seen that women can be hurt or even killed during legal abortions. But even if they appear unscathed immediately afterward, there is undeniable mounting evidence of subsequent long-term emotional, physical, social, and mental ailments. Post Abortion Syndrome has been compared to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Since the new millennium, religious and secular foundations alike, including the Alan Guttmacher Institute, have been publishing well- researched, startling statistics among post-abortive women show:

•144%- More likely to abuse another child

•80%- Feelings of self-loathing, loss of self-esteem

•70%- Romantic relationship ends after abortion

•60%- Drug and alcohol abuse (only 10% stating they used before)

•45%- Repeat abortions

•36-50%- Ongoing anxiety, guilt and confusion

•36%- Nightmares, difficulty sleeping

•28%- Attempted suicide (The risk of suicide is nearly seven times higher than mothers who give birth. Suc­cess­ful suicide rates are unknown.)

•25%- More likely to see psychiatrist

•23%- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

In addition, studies show post abortive women may have:

•Inability to form subsequent loving relationships

•Eating disorders

•Difficulty conceiving (post-abortive women lose 100,000 subsequent pregnancies per year)

Why isn't this general knowledge?

Pro-choice organizations rely on their own statistics pre-dating new material by about ten years, and work hard to discredit these newer

"We shouldn't let deformed babies be born."

Doctors can now perform in-womb surgeries to correct defects at gestation periods as low as 20 weeks.

In 1999, photographer Michael Clancy was hired by USA Today to photograph a ground-breaking, in-womb procedure on a baby at 21 weeks' gestation. After a sonogram showed that tiny Samuel Armas was going to be born with spina bifida, surgery was performed at Vanderbilt University Medical Center to correct the defect. Armas was then carried by his mother for a normal remaining pregnancy.

During the surgery, a C-section incision was made and the baby was re-positioned in the womb for proper access. Suddenly, the baby's arm came up and its tiny fingers clasped around the doctor's finger. Clancy's photo capturing this event has been widely circulated.

What about conditions that will affect the baby's whole life, like Down Syndrome?

Although Downs is not yet curable by surgery, some of its complications can be. According to healthcare guide­lines for Down's babies, about 30-60 percent may have congenital heart conditions, but if detected early, with surgery at three to six months old the prognosis can be improved. When raised in a positive, optimistic environment, many Down's children-apart from looking different-can
develop near-normal intelligence, participate in sports, finish their education, live nearly on their own with light monitoring, and hold down modest jobs.

"A woman's body is her own. It's between her and her God."

It might be between her and her God, but without knowing some of these facts, and without a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, she will not be armed with all her decision-making capabilities.

Scriptural truths like "Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit-it is not your own" (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) seem "intolerant" to most feminists and abortion advocates because it symbolizes a need
to "submit" to a higher authority than themselves.

Forced abortions have come to light here in the United States. This certainly takes away from "a woman's body being her own". But the courts have failed to fault abortion doctors. In two cases:

An Eleventh Circuit Court case in 2002 revolved around a woman who had a change of heart when placed on the abortion table. As the doctor be­gan probing with instruments, she asked him to stop and let her get up. In­stead, the doctor held her down with aid from nurses and completed the abortion, making a mistake that injured her intestines. Shockingly, the court ruled in favor of the doctor and
the clinic.

A 25-year-old Maryland woman, four months pregnant, changed her mind in the procedure room. She ran back to the clinic entrance where her boyfriend stopped her, stating he'd already paid for the abortion. Three clinic workers and the abortionists surrounded the woman, sedated her by injection, and then took her back into the procedure room. After the forced abortion, she awoke in a closet, according to a 2004 report.

MYTH #11
"There are too many unwanted babies in the world."

So many couples are waiting to adopt babies that the wait in the U.S. can be 18 months. Many couples resort to costly foreign adoptions, thinking it will be faster, according to 2006 statistics.

What about the population explosion?

In China, where families are commanded to have only one child-and only valued if it's a boy, women with repeat pregnancies are forced into abortion. It is reported that baby girls are left out in the
elements to die or placed in overcrowded orphanages. As a result, China's official statistics according to a report in the Washington Times , now shows as many as 10 men to every one woman. There are
therefore less marriages producing less boys, more cases of sexual violence against women, and not enough people for the workforce.

The effect on the African American population

Abortion is also the leading cause of death for African Americans, above gang violence or heart disease. While comprising only 12 percent of the U.S. population, black women account for 32 percent of all abortions. That means the African American population could have been 32 percent larger than it is, according to CNS News.

MYTH #12
"A lady named Jane Roe started it all."

Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" in Roe v. Wade, is now a Christian and an adamant speaker against abortion. Her book Won by Love reveals the truth behind the court case. In 1969, pregnant and desperate, she allowed herself to be manipulated by attorneys from a powerful women's rights group that had been lobbying for legal abortion for some time.

She admits lying that she was raped to cover up her shame of pregnancy, but thought the lawyer went into court just to get her a safe abortion at a legal medical facility. She wasn't told her case was being used to get abortion legalized nationally. She didn't know much of what went on in the courtroom. And she never even had the abortion. Roe v. Wade was based on a charade.

In conclusion :

Evidence such as presented here simply can't be denied. It's not a baby's responsibility to pay for impulsive indiscretions.

Micah 6:7b says: "Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?"
