Abortion is Never Safe


Those who approve of abortion often assert that abortion must be legal so that it will be safe.


For numerous reasons, however, this conclusion is false...
 

Abortion Is NEVER Safe


The woman undergoing an abortion procedure is made vulnerable to the following problems (roll cursor over sentences for links to news stories):
 

Death


 

Even when the mother does not die, though, she is typically afflicted by other problems:
 

Depression

 

Infertility

 

Breast Cancer

 

Guilt


 

Of course, the abortion is never safe for the child since the intention of the procedure is the death of the child. However, there are numerous cases in which the child survives the abortion procedure. The child then faces:
 

Infanticide

 

Disabilities

 

Knowledge that mother and society were OK with their murder

  • Melissa Ohden was born alive after a failed saline infusion abortion.

  • Gianna Jessen’s testimony before the Constitution Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.

 

In abortion, then, not only is the child’s life in danger, so is the mother’s life, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Killing a child affects not just the child but everyone around the child, especially the mother. So, in no way is abortion ever safe, legal or otherwise.
