Pro-Choicer: teens should abort their babies because their babies may die

Pro-Choice author Catherine Whitney explained why teens should have abortions:

 “Infants born to teenagers have high mortality rates; they are more than twice as likely to die at birth [than] infants born to mature women. Infants who survive or more likely to have health complications and mental retardation.”

Catherine Whitney Whose Life? (New York: William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1991) 176

Abortion must be available to teens because their babies have “high mortality rates.” Meaning that if the babies are not killed by abortion, they might die. So that is a reason to kill them, to prevent them from dying by killing them.

Very convoluted reasoning.

9-10 weeks. Is it better to kill this baby now to prevent him from later dying?
