Thoughts On Abortion?

By | source: Sep 23rd, 2014

I’m not even gonna touch this one. I do not want to sell myself to any ideals in front of the world over this topic. That doesn’t mean these aren’t interesting facts.

Did you know 40-50 MILLION abortions happen year ’round? That is way more than I would have initially expected. I’m not surprised, though, to find that most women who opt for an abortion are between the ages of 20 and 24. What is startling, is the fact that 68,000 women die every year from back-alley abortions. Half of all abortions are done illegally anyway. What. The Heck.

I mean, if you think you’re better off getting an abortion, at least do it the right way. To think that women are killed from aborting the wrong way just makes me sick to my stomach. (There’s a very distasteful play on words in that sentence.) I guess having an illegal abortion makes sense when you consider that 87 percent of the United States does not provide abortion services.

Like I said, I’m not gonna take a stand on this, but it seems to me that these are the kind of facts that need to be considered when trying to form your own opinion about abortion. So spread the awareness! Let’s be an educated Internet and not an unknowledgeable, biased one! [via]
