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!

Good points you make. My concern is that these young women are lied to at the abortion clinic and honestly believe their lives may be in danger if they don’t abort. (I’m talking primarily about the teenagers.) Then they go back to their girlfriends and convince the next one who becomes pregnant to abort because she may die. And the scenario is repeated and repeated. It is sickening to think about the damage-—the loss of life-—the lives full of regret that result from these tactics of deception.
