That Time Leftist Activists Lied About ‘Back Alley’ Abortion Figures

Reposted in light of today’s Supreme Court announcement…

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the first president of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL), later had a dramatic change of heart on abortion and lamented lying about deaths from illegal abortions prior to the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe vs. Wade.

“I confess that I knew that the figures were totally false and I suppose that others did too… it was a useful figure, widely accepted, so why go out of our way to correct it with honest statistics?”

Dr. Bernard Nathanson in “Aborting America” page 193 (1979)

According to the CDC, in 1972 there were 39 maternal deaths from illegal, so called back-alley abortions. However, NARAL and other abortion activists pushed the narrative that 10,000 women a year died from illegal abortions.

The justification for a radical minority to convince millions of women to murder millions of children in an abortion assembly line was all based on a lie.

Democrats Push Abortion for ‘Defects’, Now Including Down Syndrome

Two events coincided in February when Democrats introduced a bill in Maryland to potentially decriminalize infanticide because of genetic defects as the World Health Organization (WHO) reclassified Down Syndrome from a genetic disability to a genetic defect.

Maryland Senate Bill 669 would prevent investigations or legal ramifications for aborting at any time, including “perinatal” deaths, [1-4 weeks after birth] caused by “failure to act”.

The bill specifies no penalties for aborting due to “genetic defect”.

Western values continue their steady decline.

Challenge to Roe v. Wade Heard At Supreme Court

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health concerning Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks.

Roe v. Wade, and later Planned Parenthood v. Casey, banned abortion only after about 24 weeks.

One issue before the court is when is the viability of the baby to feel pain.

“Does a mother have a right to ingest drugs and harm a pre-viable baby? Can the state bring child neglect charges against the mother?”

Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice in rare opening question

Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff “Jane Roe” in Roe v. Wade, was a lesbian who didn’t have an abortion, although her unborn baby at the time was used by pro-abortion activists to legalize abortion

McCorvey chose not to abort, saying it was “not part of who I was,” but near her death in 2017, she stated “If a young woman wants to have an abortion, that’s no skin off my ass.” There are allegations she played both sides of the issue, depending on who was paying.

If Roe v. Wade gets overturned, pre-Roe abortion bans would go into effect in nine states with 12 more states most likely to automatically follow.

Most rulings by the Supreme Court happen 14-16 weeks after oral arguments.

Disney Threatened Georgia Boycott If Unable to Abort Baby With Heartbeat, Then Films ‘Mulan’ Where One Million In Reeducation Camps

One year after threatening to boycott filming in the state of Georgia over its contested law prohibiting an abortion if doctors detect a baby’s heartbeat, Disney has filmed Mulan in the Chinese region where one million Muslim Uighurs are being held in reeducation internment camps.

The Mulan release led to a 68% increase in Disney+ app downloads.

What if a Baby Yoda was threatened with abortion? However, Disney made sure to thank the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda department in Mulan’s end credits.

Is Ella Considered Abortion?

The FDA under Obamacare considers Ulipristal Acetate (nicknamed “Ella” to make it seem less murderous) to be a contraceptive. Congressional testimony by Jane Belford of the Archdiocese of Washington described it as “being able to disrupt an already implanted pregnancy by blocking progesterone. This effect, confirmed in various animal studies, would be an abortion by anyone’s definition.” Read more at The Washington Examiner.
