Great post, Mrs. D. I thank you for your thoughts. Just wondering if there could be a legal challenge (such as filing a complaint) regarding this statement through the Ohio Health Department. It does not seem right that this clinic should be allowed to use such scare tactics to generate business. Any comments would be appreciated.

Hmm, legal complaint, it's an interesting idea. If I were going to do that, the first step would be a find an expert willing to analyze the stats and to file and/or testify. Where to find one? I'd ask Dr. David Reardon; another good bet would be to try the Ohio Right to Life organization, Christian Medical Assn, and/or Doctors for Life.

Keep in mind that the "raw numbers" could very well be correct, but the interpretation is unscientific or, especially, the assumptions about causality are inaccurate.

You've surely heard the jokes about this:

You're 850% more likely to die in a hospital than in a whorehouse: therefore hospitals should be banned. Or:

There's actually a book out there--- I read it when I was in High School --- called How to Lie With Statistics!
