Abortion Stats 101

When abortion became legal in 1973, the rate of abortion went up (nearly immediately), not down, despite what experts thought.

In 1972, a total of 24 women died from causes known to be associated with legal abortions, and 39 died as a result of known illegal abortions (CDC). In 2003, 10 women died from legal abortion.

Less than 1% of all abortions that were performed were to save the life of the mother, incest, rape.

90% of abortion clinics are in metropolitan areas; 75% of abortion clinics are in low income or poverty stricken areas.

The abortion ratios by state ranged from a low of 43 abortions per 1,000 live births in Idaho to a high of 770 abortions per 1,000 live births in NYC (CDC).

43% of all women 45 years old and younger are Post Abortive. Nearly half of them will abort again.

40% of minors having an abortion report that neither of their parents knew about the abortion (AGI).

Because doctors can now test an unborn baby for ‘abnormalities’, nearly 90% of unborn children that have Down Syndrome will be aborted.

Nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended; about 4 in 10 of these are terminated by abortion. Twenty-two percent of all U.S. pregnancies end in abortion. (AGI).

Black women are nearly 5 times more likely to abort than Caucasian women; Hispanic women are 2 times more likely.

43% of women obtaining abortions identify themselves as Protestant, and 27% identify themselves as Catholic (AGI).

1.2 million unborn babies dies each year in the US; 42 million each year worldwide; approx 115,000 per day.

Last year, over $363 million of taxpayers’ money went to Planned Parenthood.

Rev. K.H. says, “Keep in mind that the actual number of abortions are higher than what is REPORTED. As we all have gleaned from the Gosnell house of horrors in Philadelphia, the real numbers are much higher than anticipated. There are illegal abortion clinics all over the United States that do not report abortions; Gosnell’s clinic was just the tip of the iceberg. Do not be deceived – abortifacients prescribed by doctors are killing unborn babies, whether intentional or not.”

This Day

Today is March 31, 2010. This day, in the United States alone, approximately 3,700 people lost their lives; 115,000 people died worldwide – 83% of all abortions are obtained in developing countries and 17% occur in developed countries, such as the U.S.

An estimated 43% of all women would have at least one abortion by the time she is 45 years old.

These numbers do NOT reflect the use of abortifacients; birth control pills, Norplant, IUD, or the morning after pill (Plan B).

One in five pregnancies end in abortion death.

Obama and his elite team of democrats signed away the lives of U.S. citizens & illegal immigrants with our just passed healthcare bill.

Math doesn’t lie. Stop the killing – changing the heart of one mother at a time – Keep LIFE Legal.
