  • Cause of Women's Deaths Associated with Pregnancy
    elevated risk of death associated with a history of abortion persists for at least eight years 5 After controlling for age and prior psychiatric history a history of abortion was a statistically significant marker for 3 12 times higher risk of death from suicide and 1 93 times higher the risk of death from suicide The elevated risk of death from violent causes was highest in the first four years following the pregnancy outcome While much attention is paid to the problem of unwanted pregnancies comparatively little has been paid to the violent conflicts which erupt when pregnancies are wanted by women but not wanted by their partners Other causes of unwanted abortions pressure from parents medical personnel or circumstances can also result in grief guilt and a loss of desire to live 3 which may play a role in the higher rate of deaths due to suicide and accidents among women with a history of abortion These are just a few of the studies that irrefutably shown that abortion is a marker for violent death among women yet this important marker was completely excised from WHO s report on violence While we might expect WHO to ignore the violent deaths directly attributable to abortion s intended victims unborn children the additional coverup of the abortion link to violent deaths among women can only be explained by WHO s unswerving commitment to the population control agenda which seeks to perpetuate the myth that legal abortions are entirely safe The truth is that legal abortion like illegal abortion is a safety hazard not a safety net It involves innumerable risks to the physical and psychologocial health of women 6 whether they voluntarily choose abortion or submit to unwanted abortions It is particularly worrisome that easier access to legal abortion may increase the exposure of women to violence aimed at coercing them into the abortion wanted children Women at risk of coercion are protected by laws banning or strictly regulating abortion Legalization on the other hand makes it easier for coercing partners to find obtain and insist on abortion But this is a reality that population control advocates refuse to entertain because the many do not actually care about women s individual rights as is evidenced by their defense of China s draconian one child policy Population control zealots are focused on global concerns not individual rights They pursue the goal of lower birth rates especially among the poor with a truly religious dogmatic fervor If the reduction in birth rates is due to the coercion of governments or the coercion of sexual partners the result is the same Population controllers will therefore shield the coercing parties and even defend them for their farsightedness Not all supporters of legal access to abortion however are rabid population controllers To these moderates who truly care about women we appeal for support in the effort to educate the public about the inherent risks associated with unrestricted access to abortion To these moderates we appeal for

  • Bush Administration and UN Summit (May, 2002)
    all over the world for standing against abortion for children said Austin Ruse president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute C FAM The US the Holy See and various Muslim states drew a line in the sand against abortion a year ago and no matter what they never wavered from their commitment to life and family More than 180 UN delegations labored for more than a year to finish a document meant to advance protection for children around the world UN documents are occasion for UN radicals to advance their controversial agenda including abortion but also redefinitions of the family The European Union was able to keep language in the document promoting various forms of the family which includes homosexual couples The Bush administration made its opposition to this known in its speech to the UN General Assembly late Friday night in which they pointedly left homosexual couples out of their definition of the family The US statement said As regards the phrase various forms of the family exist the United States understands this to include single parents and extended families Pro family conservatives are rightly proud of the Bush administration and the Holy See for defending life

  • Bush Prohibits Taxpayer Money to Fund Organizations that Promote or Perform Abortions Overseas
    Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer said the order would not be divisive This position is supported on a bipartisan basis he said Most Americans do not support the use of taxpayer money for these purposes Abortion supporter Kate Michelman of NARAL saw it as Bush s latest act of war on abortion following on his nomination of staunch pro ife advocates to key Cabinet posts including former Sen John Ashcroft for attorney general and former Wisconsin Gov Tommy Thompson as secretary of health and human services Bush is using his presidential powers quite aggressively already to undermine a woman s right to choose and clear a pathway to the overturning of Roe v Wade Michelman said I think it s a harbinger of things to come Supreme Court appointments judicial appointments There s quite a bit of harm that can be done to women s reproductive rights The pro life policy became known as the Mexico City policy because it was announced by Reagan at a 1984 population conference there U S funds will flow unrestricted to international pro abortion groups on Feb 15 unless the new president acts by executive order to impose the Mexico City policy as Bush has decided to do The decision brought very positive responses from many pro life leaders and organizations Gail Quinn Executive Director of the Secretariat for Pro Life Activities of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops explained President Bush s action today in re establishing the Mexico City Policy is an important first step in reversing the pro abortion policies of the previous Administration Withholding funds from organizations that promote or perform abortions overseas often in violation of the host country s own laws sends a clear message that Americans will not subsidize attacks on the first and most basic human right

    on his third day in office By acting promptly before a February 15 deadline set by Congress President Bush ensures that this vital pro life policy will govern funding for the entire current fiscal year The policy requires that private overseas organizations to be eligible for funding under the U S population control aid program must agree not to perform abortions except to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape or incest and not to actively promote abortion as a method of family planning for example by campaigning to weaken or repeal the pro life laws of foreign nations either with U S funds or any other funds Johnson noted that under the first Bush Administration over 350 overseas organizations accepted funds under the Mexico City Policy and that the policy had no effect whatever on the overall level of funding for the population assistance program Despite its claim that it wanted abortion to be rare from its inception the Clinton Gore Administration regarded abortion as part of the overall approach to population control as White House spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers put it in 1993 The Clinton Gore Administration also advanced the ideological doctrine sometimes referred
