Life Links 12/6/10

Prolifers are planning on protesting at the Maryland abortion clinic where abortionist LeRoy Carhart will begin performing late-term abortions.
Organizers said they plan to stage regular, peaceful demonstrations as long as Carhart is working at the clinic. By holding regular protests, they hope other businesses in the office park will put pressure on Carhart to leave, Mahoney said.

Secular Prolife's blog has a quick logic lesson.

Canadian women who live on Prince Edward Island are apparently choosing to pay for their abortions out of pocket instead of getting tax-funded abortions because they are concerned for their privacy. They supposedly don't want their names on government documents.

Two researchers have published a paper in the pro-choice journal Reproductive Health Matters which claims that 47,000 women died worldwide in 2008 from the complications of unsafe abortion. This is a notable decrease from the most recent estimate from the World Health Organization which claims that approximately 70,000 women died from unsafe abortion complications in 2005. Also, there's a decrease in estimated abortion-related deaths despite the WHO estimating a nearly 2 million rise in the number of unsafe abortions. I guess this is just another piece of evidence that having pro-choice advocates estimate how many women die from unsafe abortions is hardly a sound science.

Apparently, the country of Georgia has the highest abortion rate in the world.
Even worse looks the data collected in the Reproductive Health Surveys conducted in 1999 and 2005 by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention which assigns 3.1 abortions per woman in Georgia (2005), the highest in the world.
