If We Criminalized Abortion Would Millions of Women Die From Illegal Abortions?

I stumbled across this essay from this site (full of lots of good pro-life arguments and abortion statistics).

Myth: If abortion were illegal again, millions of women would die from illegal abortions.

Truth: In 1966, the average number of women each year who died from illegal abortions had plummeted from about 250 per year in 1950 to 120 per year right before the first state legalize infanticide. By legalizing abortion, you can see by the chart provided at that site that the trend wasn't even affected!

However, even if the number of deaths dropped to zero, the moral evil of the deaths of 120 criminals does not compare to the millions of innocent humans being murdered in cold blood each year. It's time to stop the bloodshed. Only the Church can do it.

Mother Mary pray for us.

abortion is not the right word, it should be murder, and a country that legalizes murder is insane...

You're right - abortion is murder. Too many try to soften its evil by calling the child a fetus etc...

Bottom line: abortion is either cold blood murder of the worst kind, or it's the equivalent of getting a haircut (and throwing away some parts of your body that are no longer wanted).

There is no in-between.
