California Young Democrats celebrate 45 million deaths since Roe v. Wade

The California Young Democrats with a coat hanger and a smile visited the offices of California State Legislators to deliver a message celebrating the fact that the number of abortion related deaths has decreased since the passage of Roe v. Wade. But what they don’t mention is the fact that over 45 million babies have been killed in the process.

Their message, which was taped to the coat hanger stated:

Dear Legislator.

This weekend marks the 33rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark decisions for a woman’s right to chose. However, as the topic of abortion continues to be relentlessly debated, we hope that you will remember that before 1973 many women were force to choose back-alley options, using items such as coat hangers, to terminate pregnancies instead of seeking proper medical assistance because it was prohibited. The decision to terminate pregnancy is one of the most serious decisions a person can go through. As you vote this year, please consider making sure that women struggling with these decisions have the ability to consult medical professionals that can help them make the best decision.

This appeal is typical of the pro-abortion lobby in that they are selective in the facts they quote when praising Rove v. Wade. According to their own statistics from the Alan Guttmacher Institute:

52% of U.S. women obtaining abortions are younger than 25: Women aged 20-24 obtain 33% of all abortions, and teenagers obtain 19%.

Black women are more than 3 times as likely as white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are 2 1/2 times as likely.
2/3 of all abortions are among never-married women.
Over 60% of abortions are among women who have had 1 or more children.
48% of abortions are among women who have previously had an abortion.
27% of abortions are among women who are pregnant for the first time.
On average, women give at least 3 reasons for choosing abortion: 3/4 say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other responsibilities; about 2/3 say they cannot afford a child; and 1/2 say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner.

A Few interesting facts to note:
1. According to their numbers, about 1 in 5 abortions are performed on minors.

2. Notice that Rape, incest or the health of the mother are not on the list of reasons why women are ending their pregnancies.

3. Abortion advocate’s efforts to terminate of the pregnancies of ethnic minorities (blacks in particular) have been overwhelmingly successful.

I fail to recognize what there actually is to celebrate… 45 million dead babies? Black genocide? Abortion as a contraceptive? Sacrificing our daughters on the altar of reproductive choice?

Just a little perspective…
