Abortion Kills: Dr. David Reardon, Director of the Elliot Institute for Social Sciences, discovered abortion is four times deadlier than childbirth based on a study of statistical information from Finland’s National Research and Development Center for Welfare and Health.
Sterility: Studies have found that 3 to 5 percent of women are left sterile by abortion.
Mortality Rates: Dr. Reardon showed that women who had an abortion were 252 percent more likely to die within the following year than women who carried to term.
Abortion Breast Cancer Link: A study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found 30 percent increased risk for breast cancer for women who had one or more induced abortions.
Post Abortion Syndrome: A study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry reported that of 500 post-abortive women studied, 50 percent showed negative responses to abortion, and 10 percent suffered”serious psychiatric complications.”
Suicide: A study published in the British Medical Journal shows post-abortive women are over four times more likely to attempt suicide than women who have given birth.
Even a study conducted by the radical leftist Center for Gender Equality concluded 70 percent of women favor more restrictions on abortions. These women have seen the effects of abortion in the lives of their sisters, daughters and friends. Concerned Women for America, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, expresses its concern over the extreme risks of abortion, and supports President Bush and his health policy to protect women.
