Abortion in the USA

 

1. US abortion practitioners admit RU 486 unsafe

by Steven Ertelt

After the Food and Drug Administration reported two additional deaths resulting from the use of the RU 486 abortion drug, pro-life groups and lawmakers again declared the drug unsafe and called for it to be taken off the market.

Two abortion practitioners are surprised by the deaths and say the drug shouldn’t be used.

Peter Bours, an abortion practitioner in Portland, Oregon, says he’s surprised by the two new deaths—bringing the total number of women in the US who have died to seven.

“None of these women should be dying; it’s shocking,” Bours told the New York Times. He added that he’s rethinking whether he should continue giving women the abortion pill.

Warren Hearn, one of the few abortion practitioners in the nation to do less safe late-term abortion, said the latest information about the women’s death prove RU 486 abortions are riskier than surgical abortions. …

He called the RU 486 abortion drug “a lousy way to perform an abortion.”

2. Big drop in teenage abortion rates due to parental noti-fication law

by Gudrun Schultz

The number of teen abortions in Texas fell significantly after the state enacted a parental notification law, a new study has found.

The study, by researchers at Baruch College at City University of New York, found an 11 to 20 percent drop in abortion rates among 15-17-year old girls, compared to rates among 18-year olds who were not affected by the law. The result was taken from information comparing abortion rates among teenage girls during the two years before and after the law was put in place.

Abortion opponents are hailing the study as a solid victory for life. The study directly contradicts a report released earlier this week by the New York Times, which reported little effect on teen abortion rates in six states with parental notification laws.

Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, told the Chronicle he was thrilled with the study, and optimistic that Texas’ new law requiring not only parental notification, but also parental consent, will “have a bigger effect on reducing abortions and pregnancy for minor girls.”

“Our law is working,” he said. “It shows just what we were hoping would happen.”

Lead researcher for the study Ted Joyce said he supports abortion rights. He told the Houston Chronicle he hopes the study will draw attention to the “adverse outcomes” of parental notification laws.

3. South Dakota bans abortion

by John-Henry Westen

South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds has signed into law the first abortion ban in the United States since the 1973 Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision. The bill, House Bill 1215, passed with strong bi-partisan support in both houses and makes abortion a felony in the state, punishable by up to five years imprisonment.It is to go into effect this July.

The only exception to the South Dakota law would be cases where the life of the mother was in danger. Lawmakers successfully avoided making changes to the bill that would allow abortions in cases of rape, incest, or for the “health” of the mother, exceptions which usually cripple the application of laws against abortion. It does not prohibit abortifacient drugs such as the morning after pill in cases of rape or incest.

On signing the bill the Governor stated, “In the history of the world, the true test of a civilization is how well people treat the most vulnerable and most helpless in their society. The sponsors and supporters of this bill believe that abortion is wrong because unborn children are the most vulnerable and most helpless persons in our society. I agree with them.”

The Governor concluded his remarks saying: “While this is a state and national issue, I want to emphasise that whatever the courts decide, South Dakotans will continue to care about both the unborn child and mother. If we are pro-life, we must recognize the need to take care of women who are faced with a difficult pregnancy. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy, we cannot protect the innocent child, unless we protect and care for the mother. We must help each mother to see the value of the gift that is a child, and nurture the mother for her own sake and for the sake of her child.”
