Actual Abortion Statistics

anonymous:

People like you pretty much disgust me. Most abortions are performed out of medical necessity or rape. You can preach all you want about how rape babies can just be given away, but rape is a VERY traumatic experience. Rape victims need years and years of psychological help after they are raped, regardless of if they get pregnant or not. And you’re telling me a cluster of cells is more important than a woman’s life? Many babies have to be terminated to prevent death of a woman.

ACTUAL reasons women choose to kill their prenatal children:

  • 25% – unready for child/responsibility
  • 23% – can’t afford a baby
  • 19% – has all the children she wants
  • 8% – relationship problem/single motherhood
  • 7% – not mature enough
  • <6.5% – other reasons
  • 4% – interference with education/career plans
  • 4% – mother’s health
  • 3% – baby may have health problems
  • <1% – parents/partner wants the child aborted
  • <0.5% – rape or incest

As you can see, 93% of abortions are for social or economic reasons. Only 7% are for ‘medical necessity’ or rape (the truth is that abortion is never necessary to save the life of the mother). Once again, 93% of abortions are performed on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies.

EDUCATE YOURSELF. Know what you are fighting for.
