This is from the web page of the abortion clinic (Hell's branch office):

Carrying a pregnancy to full term carries much higher risks for women under the age of 20. One (1) in every 400,000 women dies from an abortion whereas 12 out of 100,000 (48 times greater) die from carrying a pregnancy full term. If the pregnancy is continued, risk of injury or serious illness is 100 times greater than with an abortion.

Where do they get these stats? Wonder what the risk of injury or serious illness is for the baby in an abortion!!!!! Not that they would care. Playing on the fears of young women so they can make money off the killing of the innocent . . . Disgusting beyond belief!!!

"If the pregnancy is continued, risk of injury or serious illness is 100 times greater than with an abortion." I don't have time right now to look up the stats, but on the face of it, this is fallacious for two reasons:

In other words, the question is whether women are dying "from the pregnancy" or dying "of underlying conditions" who might have died with with or without a pregnancy.

One of our local high-risk pregnancy specialists (Dr. Brenda Crowder) pointed out to me that women with "underlying conditions" might very well have a higher survival rate because of the pregnancy, in the sense that a pregnant woman is highly motivated to have frequent monitoring, to cease harmful habits (e.g. smmoking), to eat better, and generally take care of herself.

Dr. Crowder also points out that the well-being factors for pregnant moms and babies don't naturally compete; they naturally coincide. Anything that hurts one, will hurt both; anything that benefits one, will benefit both; "You can't embrace an unborn child without embracing the woman whose body already embraces him."
