Give pro-abortionists credit for catchy phrases. In the latest of an endless stream of “research” publicized this time in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, pro-abortionists now talk about “abortion deserts.”
The researchers come from Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), a California-based “reproductive health research group” which grinds out studies with pre-determined research like widgets.
The “aha” conclusion from the study published Monday is that “Twenty-seven major cities in the country are 100 miles or more from their nearest abortion provider.”
What do we say to that? Three things.
First, it is odd in the extreme that the researchers would talk about the absence of killing centers as a desert. It is the desert that kills. An abortion “desert” increases the chances that unborn babies will survive.
Second, there are fewer abortion clinics for a host of reasons that Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon, NRLC’s director of education & research, has documented in exhaustive detail. Two of the primary reasons are that PPFA is consolidating to form mega-clinics and that older abortionists are not being replaced as they retire.
Pro-abortionists, like this assembly of researchers, like to attribute the shrinkage to what they call Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers — “TRAP.” To be clear, any regulation that makes abortion clinics less like a fire trap, subject them to inspection, and requires them to have arrangements with a hospital when there are the inevitable complications are “medically unnecessary rules”—sand in the gears, so to speak.
That is why the correct metaphor for the Abortion Industry is an assembly line. They want to mass produce death. Anything that slows that down is “unnecessary.”
Third, when lamenting the lack of abortion clinics, pro-abortionists conveniently overlook that the demand has dropped. Once there were 1.6 million abortions each year. According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, the death toll dropped to 926,200 abortions in 2014, the lowest figure of babies lost since 1974! The market, fortunately, has shrunk!
What Dr. O’Bannon has shown in many of his analyses is that if there is a pause in a woman’s decision-making process, they could be “lost” (as abortionists like to put it)—they won’t have the abortion.
Which by the way is why abortions both hate and fear the Abortion Reversal Process. If there are more chemical abortions than ever—and there are—the last thing they want is for women to know if they have second thoughts, they have a good chance of saving their baby.
