Abortion is Much More Dangerous than Childbirth, Major Danish Study Finds

A large study in Denmark has shown a staggeringly high risk of death among women within the first year after having first-trimester abortions.

Nov. 30, 2012 - PRLog -- Despite widespread claims by U.S. public health officials that abortion is safer than childbirth, a large study in Denmark has shown a staggeringly high risk of death among women within the first year after having first-trimester abortions.

A Danish study of nearly half a million women has found that those who had first-trimester abortions had an 89 percent higher risk of death within the first year after the abortion, compared to women who did not have direct abortions. The study also found an 80 percent higher risk of death for these women over a ten-year period studied.

“Compared to women who delivered, women who had an early or late abortion had significantly higher mortality rates within 1 through 10 years [after their abortions]. A lesser effect may also be present relative to miscarriage,” stated the study.

The study, published in the Sept. 1, 2012 Medical Science Monitor (http://www.medscimonit.com/index.php?/archives/article/88...), also features a video that explains how previous claims that abortion is safer than childbirth were based on a poor methodology. The video explains how a Finnish study showed that death certificates identified only 27% of pregnancy-associated deaths. In other words, those who completed death certificates were often unaware whether the women had had abortions.

Flawed Methodology

Abortion mortality studies in the United States are likely similarly flawed because they are based on either the voluntary submission of data on the part of abortion clinics to the Center for Disease Control, or to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, the research arm of Planned Parenthood. There is no centralized collection of abortion and death history in the U.S. similar to what is found in Europe, where many countries have a nationalized health care system.

The more accurate data was found by linking nearly half a million records from Denmark’s fertility and abortion registries to death registry records.

Women in La Grange, La Grange Park, Brookfield, Lyons, Countryside, Western Springs, Westchester, Hinsdale, Berwyn and nearby cities who are considering abortion and are concerned about its risks should call Women’s Care Center of La Grange (http://www.pregnancychoices4me.org/), at 708-352-5000 for more information.
