Thousands of Late-Term Abortions Will Continue Following Death of George Tiller
Washington, DC -- The killing of late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller has focused the nation's attention on abortion, but it hasn't shown the spotlight on the number of late-term abortions done every year. Even after Tiller's death, which pro-life groups have thoroughly condemned, late-term abortions will continue.
According to the Centers for Disease control, 1.3 percent of all abortions -- nearly 9,000 a year -- are done after 21 weeks into the pregnancy.
That's 8,482 babies who, in 2005 alone, could have potentially survived outside their mother's womb, according to the very latest medical research.

What an absolute monstrosity this is. Frankenstein would be appalled by this........
Will be interesting to follow the data on clinic activity before and after Tiller’s killing.
Clinics have been decreasing in number. What blip in this trend will result from Scott Roeder’s action?
Some say Tiller’s murder will hurt the pro-life movement. I tend to think not.
It’s been amusing to see how the media has covered this. On the one hand, they love reporting this story, as they can demonize the pro-life, vis-a-vis, Roeder. On the other hand, they have to be very careful in their word choice.
They never use the term “abortionist”. It’s always “abortion doctor” or “doctor who performed abortions”. “Late-term” should be used as little as possible and “viability” should be avoided at all costs. After all, even most “pro-choice” people oppose late-term abortions, and if the average person came to realize that Tiller could terminated pregnancies while saving some babies instead of always terminating both, as he was paid to do, most might look at Roeder’s actions in a slightly different light.
good article. thanks

and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. ‘
