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.

Well, the underlying lie (if I can put it that way) is that pregnancy is some kind of pathological condition: to be prevented if possible, to be eradicated if prevention didn't work, etc. etc. Actually the female body is beautifully well-equipped for pregnancy, which is a normal healthy condition.

Here's an interesting article about how pregnancy reduces the risk factors for some medical conditions.

To be clear, pregnancy elevates some risk factors as well (e.g. deep vein thrombosis), but often these are conditions are multicausal (e.g. poor nutrition, poor exercise, smoking) and when you eliminate the other causes, any alleged negative pregnancy effect disappears.

On the other hand, just by googling "pregnancy protective effect" in about 10 minutes I found articles examining the beneficial effect of pregnancy in preventing breast and uterine cancer, alleviating multiple sclerosis, and stengthening the immune response; somebody (!) ought to do a survey of the literature and put together a comprehensive study on this!

Not that teenages commonly make decisions based on statistical analysis. (Sigh.) They are easily manipulated by the abortion profiteers. And by the junk-sex culture. There are so many avenues we have to pursue to help our young people (and not just the young ones!) recover their right minds.
