Ah! I, too, noticed that one of the leading causes of death in this nation is missing: conventional medical care.

A study, published back in 2000 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that "death by doctor" included the following:

- 12,000 deaths a year from unnecessary surgery
- 7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals
- 20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals
- 80,000 deaths from nosocomial infections in hospitals
- 106,00 deaths from non-error (!!) adverse reactions to medication

See http://silver.neep.wisc.edu/~lakes/iatrogenic...

Updates on this study indicate that things haven't improved in the intervening years.

See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21105794

Someone should also do a study on links between mortality and prescribed psychoactive medication, in light of the recent (and not so recent) mass shootings, suicides, etc., and the ubiquitous presence of these prescriptions in the violence epidemic narrative.

I copied what I found. I noticed they didn't include combat deaths (unless these too are included in Assault with Firearms and Assault with Other), automobile accidents, medical misadventures, etc.

Abortion is the Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.
Posted on 13 March 2012 by Ron Conte In 2008, according to the Guttmacher Institute, there were approximately 1.21 million induced abortions in the U.S. According to the CDC [PDF], the leading causes of death in the U.S. in 2008 were as follows:

Total ‘all’ causes: 2,471,984 [does not include abortion]
1. Heart disease: 616,828 — 25.0% of total deaths
2. Malignant cancer: 565,469 — 22.9% of total deaths
3. Lung disease: 141,090 — 5.7% of total deaths
4. Stroke: 134,148 — 5.4% of total deaths
5. Accidents: 121,902 — 4.9% of total deaths
[...]

But if we include deaths due to induced abortion, the numbers change radically.

Total all causes: 3,681,984 [includes induced abortion]
1. Abortion: 1,210,000 — 32.9% of total deaths
2. Heart disease: 616,828 — 16.8% of total deaths
3. Malignant cancer: 565,469 — 15.4% of total deaths
4. Lung disease: 141,090 — 3.8% of total deaths
5. Stroke: 134,148 — 3.6% of total deaths
6. Accidents: 121,902 — 3.3% of total deaths
[...]

When we include abortions, the total number of deaths is 49% higher. The number of deaths from abortion is greater than the number of deaths from heart disease and cancer combined. Abortion is by far the leading cause of death in the U.S. One third of all deaths in the U.S. is caused by abortion, which is a type of murder.

According to the FBI, there were 14,180 murder victims in 2008. If we include abortion as a type of murder, 98.84% of murders were abortions, and only 1.16% of murders were from all other types of murder.

How many early abortions were caused by abortifacient contraception in 2008? There is not even a rough estimate available. However, the CDC reports [PDF] that in 2008 approx. 10.7 million women in the U.S. used oral contraceptives. So the number of abortions from abortifacient contraception may be in the millions.

Myoptic in your vision there pawn. You forgot -- abortion is legal; therefore, certainly not murder nor counted as a cause of death. Also, statistics from a source such as this are at best questionable.

Good thinking. The other causes of death aren't legal? Death is a death. Don't count it because it was legal? Don't count those who die because of capital punishment? Heart Disease legal? Sorry, hard to wrap around the logic?

Did you know...when slaves were still around..."killing" a slave was not deemed as murder or a cause of death either but rather just destruction of property...

How convenient it is that you and others can redefine life as you see fit...

Oh, I guess you can not think of it as a death because you can point out that the law says it is not a death. Unless you argue that no death occurs with the loss of a fetus. Tell that to those who miscarry.

Your view would change the Law -- so change it if you can -- That's your right. However, currently it treats aborted unborn as not countable as "deaths" -- You however think they are, which is your opinion, but not that of our Laws and many, many others,(to include the Supreme Court).

Ah, grasshopper. I guess if you make it a law then it is not a death. Nice logic. Like killing those who are labeled "sub-human". Works every time and has the imprimatur of the law. Works for me. Thanks.

Actually we were discussing if these so-called "deaths" from abortions could be counted in a statistical review. Well they can't, according to the Law, as we have determined. However, no where did I agree or disagee with the Law: I simply stated it is that way. However, due to your immediate assumption that I agreed with this the rhetoric is rather visceral -- kind of funny --and judgmental at best. LOL <snicker>

No where does it say that abortion is correct because it would not be a death. It is for the mother and the child's health. Seems you have to go outside your paradigm to see what it is about.

Thought it was government rights versus personal rights to privacy. That the government could not interfere in personal rights and privacy. Makes it legal not based on anything. That is the core. And the law.

Makes it legal not based on anything else but the privacy issue and right for the woman to decide. No where does it state that it is not a death of a living being.

Abortion is not murder it's legal. But you are killing us with your incessant cutting and pasting of religious propaganda.
