CV NEWS FEED // Since the fall of Roe vs. Wade, ro-abortion activists have preyed on the heartstrings of Americans claiming: “Pregnancies are actually more dangerous than abortions.”
Is this true? Is it more dangerous for a woman’s body for her to grow and bear a child than to terminate its life before birth? Are the risks of pregnancy greater than the risks of abortion?
CatholicVote dug into a few stats to find out.
Up to 40% of women who have an abortion retain “products of conception” (RPOC). RPOC “refers to fetal or placental tissue that remains in your uterus after a pregnancy. RPOC is more common when a pregnancy ends early. RPOC can lead to bleeding, infection, and other problems. Medication or minor surgery can treat RPOC,” the Cleveland Clinic reported.
The premature ending of a pregnancy through chemical or medicinal abortion is thought to be the main cause of this phenomenon, as RPOC is found in less than 1% of full-term pregnancies.
Pregnancy, while hard on the body of a woman, also produces positive effects as well.
FemmePro OB/GYN reported that women who go through pregnancy can experience menstrual cramp relief once their cycle starts again, reduced risk of some cancers, and improved heart health with a 10% reduced risk of developing heart disease later in life if you have a history of breastfeeding.
Women who have given birth may also develop multitasking skills and are up to 94% less likely to develop Multiple sclerosis (MS).
In contrast, women who have an abortion at the very least will have negative consequences due to the interruption of the hormone process Medical News Today reported. The most common negative emotions experienced are:
- remorse or regret
- loss of self-esteem or self-confidence
- feelings of isolation and loneliness
- sleep problems and nightmares
- relationship problems
- thoughts of suicide
The Laguna Treatment Hospital reported that women who have an abortion are 80% more likely to struggle with mental health after their treatment than other women.
- 34% of women are more likely to develop an anxiety disorder
- 37% of women are more likely to experience depression
- 110% of women are more likely to abuse alcohol
- 155% of women are more likely to commit suicide
- 220% of women are more likely to abuse marijuana
While an increase in women’s deaths during pregnancy has been reported, the causes of death have little to do with the pregnancies themselves, and more with the lack of support the American health system gives to women after they have a child. Most of these maternal deaths – 80% in fact – are preventable.
It is difficult to find research on the aftermath of abortions, due to the lack of data and the lack of will to procure that data. Through the little information that was reported, a study stated that, since 2000
- More than 20 women died of complications from chemical abortions
- More than 500 life-threatening complications were reported
- Nearly 2,000 “severe” complications were reported
These numbers are only expected to rise.
“Science demonstrates that chemical abortion is more dangerous for women. Data from states which track complications shows that as chemical abortions increase, so do the most serious complications resulting from chemical abortion,” Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) president Charles A. Donavan stated. A comparative study stated that “medical termination is associated with a higher incidence of adverse events,” and concluded that chemical abortions are even more dangerous than mechanical ones.
