I wasn't actually promulgating the "high-ranking cause of maternal death" message-I was questioning the veracity of the information provided in a post by Jean, I believe it was.<quoted text>
So true Dan. Girls don't realize the extent of what they have done until it is too late. Then the guilt, sadness and depression sets in. Most of these girls commit suicide on the anniversary of the abortion or what would have been the due date of the aborted baby.
I am so proud to have given birth in 1973 at the age of 16. Even if I was young, I never had to face these demons and guilt of knowing I KILLED my own child. And the love I have for him is amazing.
I'll take the liberty here to caution you as I did Jean. Anecdotes and figures described as "underreported" from activits groups on either side of an issue aren't sound arguments for or against something.
For instance, I doubt very much that "most" abortion recipients die by their own hand on the first anniversary of the abortion or the due date for the aborted child, as you put forth here. Were that true, I'm quite certain that my first reading of this wouldn't be on a message board. 300,000 suicides annually would be pretty hard to slip past the press.
One can have their own opinions, but you aren't entitled to your own "facts", no matter the good you think you're doing by promoting them. Lying is still lying.
