Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 59 -- Abortion.



Research tends to indicate that those who have been aborted would have been likely to have abortions themselves down the line. Notice, thus, how the abortion rate for young women begins to fall precisely 15 years following Roe v. Wade.

The downward trend for all women, meanwhile, happened a little, but not much, later:


Minorities account for an ever-increasing share of abortions, while white women are having fewer and fewer abortions as a share of all abortions:




The Alan Guttmacher Institute (.pdf).

Also, for more debunking of the claim that abortions have risen under the Bush administration, prominently made by Senators Clinton and Kerry, as well as DNC Chairman Dean, see FactCheck.org.

Wizbang has more on Howard Dean's true motives.

It amazes me how Howard Dean finds the room for all the things he pulls out of his - Sounds like glass!

Also sounds like class! ...

The way technology has progressed. We have so much more information about what abortion really is! Women use to believe the abortion centers when they said it was just a blob or mass of cells. Today we know that is not true! That is most likely the reason abortion is not quite as popular these days! Then again! There will always be those people who believe abortion is a choice! Abortion might be a choice, BUT what kind of a choice are they going to be able to live with? I know many women who have had abortions. One of the strangest things I remember a friend of mine saying is she refused to take birth control pills because they made her gain weight! She said that if she got pregnant she would just get an abortion. I had another friend who had an abortion because she didn't want to be pregnant again. After she had it, she went through a big depression and really has not been quite the same. Then again! I know another woman who acts as if it never happened! Although I remember her being so sick and bleeding so much after that she needed a transfusion. Sorry to get off on that, I just thought it might explain some of the reasons abortion is not quite as popular as it was once.

Partisan mudslinging was Deans intention. Hillary Clinton and the rest of the Libs. will pull anything out of thin air!

General Electric has a beautiful commercial of an ultra sound! It has the song "The First Time Ever I Saw Your face" It is a very powerful commercial! Actually I have not seen it for quite a while. I often wonder if General Electric took heat from Planned Parenthood for airing such a powerful image!
