British Doctors Told to Advise Women Abortion Safer Than Giving Birth
Fox News ^ | Feb. 27, 2011

Posted on 02/27/2011 2:18:48 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Doctors and nurses in Britain are being advised to tell their patients that having an abortion is safer than having the baby, The Telegraph reports.

The draft guidance from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is for all doctors, nurses and counselors advising women who are thinking about terminating their pregnancy.

Its first recommendation on "what women need to know" instructs health professionals: "Women should be advised that abortion is generally safer than continuing a pregnancy to term."

The guidance also says that women who are deciding whether to have an abortion must be told that most do not suffer any psychological harm. Until now, their advice has been that while rates of psychiatric illness and self-harm in women are higher among those who had an abortion, there was no evidence that termination itself was likely to trigger psychological problems.

This line of reasoning actually makes sense to liberals.

At least, to liberals already born.

I posted this from the Telegraph a little while ago, and as I pointed out in that thread, a glance at the websites of abortion clinics in the U.S. would show that they’ve been selling this BS to American women, too.

Death at any means. Sick.

Here's where morals and conviction really come into play, folks.

My particular estimate of the potential for destruction in this world is if the mother/father is a Muslim or not. Muslim? A definite high-potential for madness and irreparable damage to civilized society.

I also believe abortion is murder,plain and simple - no frills.

My question is, "Does God recognize Islam?"

Ridiculous and maddening...more like the reason is that it would be cheaper for their government run health care system.

Abortion more than doubles the chance of getting breast cancer. And that’s especially dangerous when the NHS is refusing many patients cancer treatments.

They prefer to offer assisted suicide, which is cheaper.

Abortion and assisted suicide. It’s a twofer from the NHS.

I doubt if these 'facts' are in fact true. It is hard to believe that a surgical or chemical procedure is safer than a natural process.

But then again, the left has been known to make up things as they go along. When O interviewed 0 for example 0bummer said that the majority of people wanted his healthcare bill.

Of course it’s not true.

One thing is that doctors perform way, WAY too many caesarians. Maybe with medical interventions it’s a bit more dangerous to give birth, but the vast majority of caesarians are totally unnecessary. Just racks up more $ for doctors etc.

Any doctor or nurse who spouts this crap should
receive a retroactive abortion. It would be safer
for the rest of civilized society.

One suspects that, under any socialist health scheme, such as NHS and Obamacare, abortion will always carry an extremely high priority, and will be among the last procedures to experience any decline in funding. And, standard, traditional procedures, such as those involved in childbirth, will, like everything else, be rationed to the point of total exclusion when the system is further threatened financially. This scam described here makes it seem as though NHS is trying out an alternative scenario to prevent the collapse, and, in doing so, encouraging more of the procedure it considers absolutely sacred.

All while pandering to the anti-growth environmentalists. For the liberals, everybody wins.

Except the baby. But, hey...they don’t vote.

Not the Muslims. Muslims don’t abort. Legalized abortion is a way to get rid of infidels in the population so that Muslims reach the majority and can take over.

The Kenyan Constitution that Obama spent millions of taxpayer dollars to lobby for allows abortion on demand, which will kill off non-Muslims. It also allows sharia for Muslims (one of the provisions Obama’s cousin, Raila Odinga, had promised the Muslims if they would “aid” his rise to power - which they did by committing violence to primarily Christians, throwing the country into chaos and resulting in a power-sharing arrangement between Odinga and Kibaki. Another promise was that Odinga would undermine American anti-terrorism measures.

So it’s a double-whammy.

Israeli press claimed that the Egyptian ambassador had said on a TV show that Obama had told him personally that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda, and that once he had the healthcare takeover done he would turn to the world Muslim agenda.

Musta been true, because it looks like the Muslim Brotherhood may be taking over the entire Middle East. Have to wait and see to know for sure, but we know Obama’s buddies Ayers and Dohrn have been over there making trouble, as has his buddy Julian Assange. At the very time that his buddies here in the US (the union thugs) are making trouble and folks like Farrakhan are saying that America will have the same kind of protests/riots as in the Middle East.

Funny, isn’t it, that a country that evaded having to follow the Presidential eligibility issue supposedly for the sake of not instigating riots is going to get riots anyway - BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT VIOLENT PEOPLE AUTOMATICALLY DO. In the Middle East or here, appeasement of the violent elements by overlooking the rule of law is provocation for violence.

When America voted in the communist-Islamist scum that is in the White House now, overlooking both his terrorist ties and his ineligibility, it was an invitation for the very lawlessness we’re seeing right now. Obama is moving into a phase where he’s not even pretending to be following the rule of law. When I heard Rush talking about Obama telling Holder not to defend DOMA and how that shows Obama’s lawlessness, all I could think was, “This is what we’ve been telling everybody all along - that if the rule of law is dispensable in the eligibility issue it will soon be dispensable everywhere, because the issue is LAWLESSNESS.”

People are seeing the full-blown oak tree now, even though they wouldn’t see it as a germinating acorn. Now that it is full-blown and openly apparent, Obama has nothing to lose by showing his lawlessness. We can expect ever-increasing blatant lawlessness.

The revolution is trying to reach its crisis right now. This is the big move. America will come out of this standing strong, or totally overthrown. That’s my belief. Obama may be trying to not have to run again because they’re going to ignite the country and suspend elections. They’ve got both the unions and embedded Hezbollah/Hamas operatives all over the country willing to be the tinder. They’ve got the Islamic world - including a nuke-equipped Al Qaeda - willing to be the initial explosion. They’ve got a lawless ally in the Mexican druglords weakening our critical southern defense and a route from Iran to Venezuela to America’s soft underbelly ready to bring on enforcements and weapons if necessary - as well as missile launching capabilities in Venezuela so the USA is within the reach of all of Iran/Syria/North Korea’s weaponry.

They’ve been planning this for a long time, while America slept, too embarrassed to say that we’ve got a Muslim Kenyan impostor committing treason in the White House while the media gushes and calls a spade a petunia and mocks anybody who calls a spade a spade.

We have said all along that Obama’s eligibility was NOT a “distraction” but the means for an illegal, lawless coup that would end very, very badly. When will people wake up and see that we are surrounded. In 2 years’ time Obama and his communist-Islamist allies have set us up for annihilation. Is this serious enough yet that we can say it’s more than just a “distraction”?

Indeed. I suggest we use the brain-suction method. Heck, my Shop-Vac can run on 220v at the flip of one switch. Who has one of those cord adapter things?

Let me get this straight.

They are saying that Nature or God or Natural Selection or whatever you consider to be the prime mover in the propagation of the species over thousands of years is not as reliable for women’s health as the good ol D&C in the hands of a skilled abortionist.

So the healthiest thing for women would be to extinguish all human life on the planet by means of abortion?

Something is wrong with this theory. Have they thought this through to the logical conclusion?
