According to an AFP article:
One in five pregnancies worldwide ends in an abortion…
In 2003, the latest year for which full figures are available, 42 million abortions were carried out around the world…
For every 1,000 women aged between 15 and 44 in 2003, 29 had an abortion…
Of course, not that AFP is biased, but if you read the article they seem to play up the fact that this is actually a decrease in abortions. They do not say this in terms of ending this barbaric practice, but more so as to try and appease those of us who are reasonable and humane enough to oppose this medical-murder.
They also try and create sympathy by pointing out:
...but nearly half these terminations still take place in unsafe conditions, a study says.
See, you are supposed to focus on the horrible, “unsafe” conditions some woman have to endure. Luckily, there are thousands; if not millions of places folks can go to have a safe abortion... Well, safe for the mother, deadly for the child, but just ignor that dirty little fact and you will be fine... and a Liberal.
Hey Liberals; don’t lecture America on the innocent lives lost in the Iraq War and then argue for abortion on demand.
I have said it before but it is worth repeating: If all of the pro-abortion Liberals’ mothers had agreed with them, they would not be around to argue for the right to kill.
