So Much For "Safe"!
Pro-abortion groups love to tell us that abortion is "safe" and "rare."
As for safe, I don't think the babies would agree.
Neither would the thousands and thousands of women who deeply regret having killed the little life inside them. But even worse, the procedures themselves aren't even "safe". Take the story of the following two women who were severely injured due to botched abortions earlier this year.
(The following story comes from the National Pro-Life Alliance Newsletter:)
Not only were the two women carried away from an abortion mill in ambulances, but from the same mill, on the same day, just minutes apart from each other.
It all happened at an abortion mill in Birmingham, Alabama, where just after nine thirty in the morning, an ambulance arrived, but was sent away.
Then, less than one hour later, the ambulance rushed back, closely followed by a second ambulance and an emergency vehicle."
"The paramedics had to make their way through a trash-filled alley to get inside the abortion mill.
Because the gurney couldn't navigate the narrow back hall and dilapidated staircase, the paramedics had to carry the patient out by hand, and lay her down on the gurney in the trash-filled alley."
The woman was immediately put into an ambulance, bleeding and unconscious, and rushed to a nearby medical center.
But it didn't end there. Moments later the paramedics brought another patient through the alley, this time in a wheelchair.
The woman, with an oxygen mask and wrapped in a blanket was carefully maneuvered out of the narrow doorway by emergency personnel.
Then they whisked her away too."
This all happened on -- of all days -- January 21st, just one day before the 39th anniversary of the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion-on-demand to allow women to have so-called "safe" abortions.
Apparently the abortionists didn't get the memo about the "safe" part.
So what about that "legal" part then? Surely abortion mills follow the law?
Not even close.
Because of increased pressure from the National Pro-Life Alliance members and other pro-life groups, state health departments all across the country have finally begun to conduct inspections.
Many of these abortion centers have not been inspected for years. Some -- never.
And abortion mills regularly violate the few laws that govern them."
"They misread pregnancy tests, use expired drugs, ignore ultrasound laws that require a woman be given the option to view her preborn child in the womb, distribute controlled substances without physician authorization, have non-licensed employees perform abortions, just to name a few.
Inspectors found that the abortion facility in Birmingham didn't even wait long enough to verify if patients were pregnant before proceeding with abortions.
Is it any wonder that women show up at emergency rooms all across America with fevers, infections, and permanent damage after trusting their bodies to these hellish places?
The abortion industry insists that ONLY IT should police itself, but that has NEVER happened.
When they have already sunk so low as to justify killing innocent babies, it's hardly surprising they wouldn't care about a few women dying here and there.
As for the "rare" part of the argument, almost 56 million abortions since the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision soundly disprove that claim.
1.6 million a year, more than 4,000 per day, and many more due to dangerous home abortion pills.
Hardly rare and likely only to get worse, until people of conscience prevail and overturn Roe v. Wade, and the butchers are out of business forever.
And that's why your National Pro-Life Alliance continues to lead the fight to pass the Life at Conception Act to overturn Roe v. Wade and ultimately end abortion-on-demand."
