There is nothing on the planned parenthood site that even suggests that Planned parenthood is even considering doing any such thing.
Since PP is not an adoption agency his numbers only reflect the number of women that asked for adoption agency referrals and not the # of times PP initiated the option.

Maybe call bullshyt after you watch the "prenatal services" number continue to decline. But, when that happens, it won't be bullshyt. Will it, warlock?

<quoted text>you switched your numbers around from your original post. You posted this:
The article I cited used Planned Parenthood's 2009 numbers: 332,278 abortion procedures, 977 adoption referrals. http://liveaction.org/blog/planned-parenthood ...
Then you posted: 2009 = 329,445, 2010 = 332,278
You're correct. I did initially have the 2009 & 2010 abortion numbers switched. Thanks for bring that to my attention.

It's so easy to sit in a chair and spout meaningless statistics. The fact is when you are using birth control and it fails and you are also on medications that cause severe birth defeats, sometimes you don't have the luxury of a choice. If you are a low income family or single parent who can't afford a child you sure won't be able to afford a child who is born with irreparable congenital birth defects like Anencephaly. But because self righteous people who think they know what is best for other people's family and want to ban all abortions, parents will have NO RIGHT to make a medical decisions about how long their children will be forced to suffer OUTSIDE of the womb.

If you don't think women are smart enough or moral enough to make life choices for themselves and their offspring then ban women from making any choices at all. After all women who were victims of abuse fall for abusers so let's ban them from giving birth just in case the daddy she picked is violent or has drug problems or the daddy is a pedophile. It's women who make their own decisions that are the problem, right?

A Pro Lifer ALWAYS ASSUMES the mother is a slut who should have kept her legs together or used birth control but sometimes birth control fails. They never try to pass bills to sterilize men who have 20 babies by different mothers or FORCE guys on birth control. It's always that Reich Wing, slutty women getting knocked up for food Stamps BS. Pro Lifers also ASSUME once the baby is adopted everything will be rainbows and kittens. If only life were like fairy tales.

Abortion rates WILL ALWAYS BE higher when unemployment, drug abuse, homelessness rates are higher. Adoptions will also go down when the economy tanks, try to wrap your head around the reasons why and which sex those circumstances effect most. It's not for the love of killing or convenience, sometimes it's pure mercy. Love alone will not feed a child. Ridicule, guilt trips, sermons about the love of Jesus WILL NOT prevent a drugged out, burnt out parent from abusing or killing a child after it's born.

Personally I don't believe Pro Lifers give a crap about children or they would fight harder to get birth control sold over the counter or fight harder to for stricter sentencing in domestic violence cases. They would at least show up every day at child abuse hearings and murder trials where parents beat, or raped their babies to death. That is if children really meant anything to them.

All Pro Lifers want to do is pretend to be righteous by saying they are trying to save lives so they can sleep at night while 2000 - 3000 kids are killed at home or just left to die in mommie or daddy's car every year.(Jesus must be so please they weren't aborted.) Six million are victims of abuse every year so we need to get our heads out of our rear ends and stop looking at abortion as a black & white issue because to these children who get raped or torn apart at 2 or 6 don't have a politically backed, well funded PRO LIFE movement to protect them because they have homes or parents, just not loving ones.

Your WHO link discusses infection treatment AFTER a woman has had a surgical ABORTION procedure. As I said yesterday, if you are concerened over women dying from infections, you should be against abortion.

:Sigh:

I bet your teachers went nuts when you were their student. You just never seem to get anything correct...yet, you act as though you're flawless.

Where to start.....

Savita did not receive a surgical abortion. She was admitted to hospital on Oct 21 with complaints of severe pain. As you correctly stated, she was in process of a miscarriage (cervix dilated and amniotic fluid leaking). Her preborn baby was 17-weeks-old, and heart was still beating.

Oct 25, Savita's preborn baby died and was surgically removed.

Following surgery, Savita declined from an internal infection that quickly spread (Sepsis). On Oct. 28th, she died as her organs slowly failed.

Coroner stated Savita died from sepsis (E. Coli bacteria infection) which she likely contracted while in the hospital (Remember, she had surgery to remove dead baby....she would've had surgery to abort, too).

I stand by my contention that the problem lied w/ WHEN antibiotics were initiated. Were prophylactic antibiotics used? How long after infection was noticed were antibiotics begun? Should they have known sooner that she had an E. Coli infection?

A seven-person independent panel was formed in Ireland, and will conduct a thorough investigation.

Blaming Savita's death on "being denied an abortion" is propaganda promoted by your ilk.

We'll see what the investigation discovers and concludes. I'm telling you right now, her death was not related to "being denied an abortion."

You'll see.

While you're yapping about statistics, go analyze and ponder why Planned Parenthood's annual abortion rate continues to rise at the same time it continues to preach and dispense contraception.

Perhaps it's the poor sex education we offer. Here are various bits of info that you'll likely not bother to read.

http://www.dosomething.org/actnow/tipsandtool... #

Here in NY:
The Holt Lifetime Health textbook, which is used in five districts in the state (and many more across the country), defines the vagina as the “organ that receives sperm during reproduction.” One district takes it even further and defines the vagina as a “sperm deposit.”

In Mississippi, which has the highest pregnancy rate for teens:
"Mississippi, the poorest U.S. state, has the nation's highest teen pregnancy rate. Yet until this year, the state allowed schools to forgo sex education entirely.
That changed with a state law passed last year that mandated school districts adopt either abstinence-only or abstinence-plus sex education policies. Before the new law, any district that did teach sex education had to teach abstinence-only.
Under the new law, a majority of Mississippi's public school districts this year adopted abstinence-only policies that avoid or downplay the issue of contraceptives."

In Texas, you can read:
"8 Steps to Protect Yourself from STDs," which includes "get plenty of rest" but not "use a condom."

A video used in three districts shows a boy asking an evangelical educator what will happen if he has premarital sex. "Well, I guess you'll have to be prepared to die."

There's an abstinence-only program that assures students that "if a woman is dry, the sperm will die".

What are the 2011 numbers? The rates are declining for the first time in quite a few years. Would you support federal funding if PP were required to provide adoption services while at the same time providing abortion services?

I don't agree. She presented to the doctor miscarrying on the 21st. Twenty four hours later she was still in pain but a fetal heartbeat was still detected and because of this she was denied a termination even tho she was told by the doctors that a miscarriage was imminent. In 24 hours she went from severe to debilitating pain and she was increasingly ill as time went on. Someone should have known her health was at risk if she was worsening day by day. Abortions are permitted for life and health and someone used poor judgment in determining just what life and health means. They didn't abort because a fetal heart beat was detected, her health issues were not the reason they finally removed the fetus days later.
