Abortion Facts

Highlights An estimated 43% of women will have at least 1 abortion by the time they are 45 years old. Each year, 2 out of every 100 women aged 15–44 have an abortion. 6 weeks or less: 16% 7-8 weeks: 38% 9-10 weeks: 23% 11-12 weeks: 11% 13-15 weeks: 7% 16-20 weeks: 4% 21 weeks or more: 1% 54 abortions daily in Alabama; 4110 nationwide 1973 – 167k cases of child abuse and neglect 2000 – 850k cases of child abuse and neglect 508% increase.. Abortion = less child abuse and neglect? British Scientists: Fetuses feel pain at 10 weeks. 1972 – 1/16 women developed breast cancer. 2002 – 1/8 develop breast cancer Explain briefly correlation b/t breast cancer/abortions. Breast cancer appears in 10-15% of people who have had abortions; without abortions; less than 1%. There are approximately 1.5 million induced abortions annually in the United States. Over half, or 800,000 of these, are first pregnancies. At a conservative estimate one in ten of these women will get breast cancer. This is 80,000 cases. About one-fourth of those who develop breast cancer, that’s 20,000 women, will die from the disease. Eric Harrah, former owner of one of the nation’s largest chains of abortion clinics: “They (resident doctors in college) can make $75,000 a year, if not more, which is very beneficial to pay off their student loans. People in the abortion business don’t want to do first trimester abortions. That’s not where the money is. The money is in mid-second to early third trimester abortions. Abortion clinics are set up like cattle slaughtering centers. You get ‘em in and you get ‘em out. I would say, honestly, about 60%-70% of all abortions takes place on Saturdays. The average doctor who does abortions one day a week at a clinic averages 25-40 abortions. He will walk away in his pocket with an average of $100,000-$125,000 a year. An average clinic that performs roughly around 8,000 abortions will gross approximately $1 million a year. But even those people who get involved because they think it’s helping women – at some point in time convert to the fact that it’s all about money. So you stop looking at women after a certain point in time as being people that you’re helping and you just start looking at them as dollar bills. (Even) a psychiatrist can do an abortion because he or she has MD or DO after their name.” Suicide: Following live birth: 5.9/10,000 Following abortion: 34.7/10,000 Suicide rate increase of 600% ® 2001 Jan Portis
