There is a “conspiracy of silence” on abortion’s risks

One study in The Lancet, a very reputable medical journal, says this:

“There has been almost a conspiracy of silence in declaring [abortion's] risks. Unfortunately, because of emotional reactions to legal abortion, well documented evidence from countries with a vast experience of it, receives little or no attention in either the medical or lay press. This is medically indefensible when patients suffer as a result…It is significant that some of the more serious complications occurred with the most senior and experienced operators…”

  1. Sally says:

    Thank you for this site! There is OVERWHELMING evidence that abortion harms everyone involved. Pro-abortionists refuse to see what is right in front of them….turning a blind eye to truth like that is not only immoral – it is frightening. I continue to pray for moms who feel as though they have no choice except abortion. Keep posting Sarah!
