By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D. NRL Director of Education & Research Just days after National Right to Life issued a report saying available data appeared to show abortions going down in the U.S. since Dobbs, the Guttmacher Institute, the former special research affiliate of abortion giant Planned Parenthood, sent out a press research claiming new data …Continue reading "Guttmacher Claims Abortions are Increasing"
By Dave Andrusko I’m amazed that I somehow missed it, but it was not until I read the Guttmacher Institute’s announcement of the selection of Herminia Palacio as its new president and CEO that I realized Guttmacher had celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018. As most of you know, National Right to Life Celebrated its …Continue reading "The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute: 50 years and counting"
By the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a post that appeared at pncius.org. A report that promotes the destruction of unborn children through the violence of abortion will be released by the Guttmacher-Lancet Commission on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights on today in South Africa, one of the …Continue reading "Pro-Abortion ‘Report’ to be launched today in South Africa"
By Dave Andrusko Defending multiple abortions is tricky even for militant pro-abortion sites such as rewire.com and for Guttmacher, the abortion industry’s in-house think-tank. But Steph Herold, about whose ramblings we have written multiple times, is up to the task. Herold’s strategy is to throw every excuse she can come up with for why women have …Continue reading "Pro-abortionists insist the only downside of multiple abortions is not sharing the experience"
Editor’s note. Earlier this week NRL News Today critiqued a new “study” from the Guttmacher Institute. The following comes from Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life, in response to the Guttmacher’s “Flouting the Facts: State Abortion Restrictions Flying in the Face of Science.” “The Guttmacher Institute’s new report should illustrate one fact …Continue reading "Guttmacher Institute Seeks to Protect Abortion-on-Demand in New ‘Study’"
By Dave Andrusko I understand that even a pro-abortion think-tank which is not exactly hurting for money is not going to grind out new propaganda on a daily basis. Which is why Guttmacher cranked out,”Flouting the Facts: State Abortion Restrictions Flying in the Face of Science,” by two veteran pro-abortion apologists, Rachel Benson Gold and …Continue reading "Guttmacher offers its own“alternative facts” in phony attempt to debunk studies that highlight abortion’s horrific impact"
By Dave Andrusko NRL News and NRL News Today have written extensively about the latest abortion numbers produced by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. In a report issued in January, Guttmacher found that for the first time since 1974, the number of abortions fell below one million– 958,200 in 2013 and 926,000 in 2014. The Sacramento …Continue reading "23,630 fewer unborn babies lost their lives in California in 2014 than in 2011"
By Dave Andrusko Imagine you are the movers and shakers at the Guttmacher Institute. Formerly the research arm of Planned Parenthood, but now, as an “independent” think tank, your abortion statistics are treated almost reverentially, as if they came from a quasi-objective source. The 44th anniversary of Roe is rapidly approaching–for Guttmacher, a kind of …Continue reading "Reflections on the Guttmacher Report, One Day Later"
By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D. NRL Director of Education & Research For the first time since 1974, the number of abortions performed in the United States has dropped below one million–926,190 for 2014. Even better news, longer term, is that abortion rates and ratios, which measure the general frequency of abortion and the likelihood that …Continue reading "Guttmacher survey results for 2013 and for 2014 find U.S. abortions drop to well under one million"
Lowest abortion total since 1974 By Dave Andrusko The Guttmacher Institute’s long-awaited new report hit the Internet this morning and the bottom line is wonderful news (unless you are Guttmacher): There were 926,200 abortions in 2014, the lowest figure of babies lost since 1974! Compare that with 1990 when there 1.6 million abortions and the …Continue reading "Guttmacher reports abortions well under one million in 2013 and 2014"
WASHINGTON – A new report released today by the Guttmacher Institute found that in 2014, for the first time since 1975, the annual number of abortions dropped below one million. “Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2014” is the result of the Guttmacher Institute’s latest survey of 1,671 abortion clinics, hospitals, and …Continue reading "New Guttmacher study shows abortion numbers hit historic low in 2014"
Own research suggests the assertion is not true By Dave Andrusko My rule of thumb is when sources that are ordinary inhospitable to pro-lifers reveal pro-abortion shenanighans (even if gently), it’s important to bring it to people’s attention, even if it is plowing old ground. What am I talking about? That the “1 in 3” …Continue reading "Another media outlet gives “One in Three” claim a “Half-True” assessment"
