CDC Figures Show Teen Abortions Lower in States Accepting Abstinence Funds

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A new report relying on data from the Centers for Disease Control finds the states that accepted abstinence education funding saw greater reductions in teen abortions compared to states that didn't. The information provides another argument in favor of funding abstinence education programs.

The Texas-based pro-life group San Antonio Coalition for Life has put out the new report and it compared CDC abortion figures to the list of states accepting or rejecting the funds.

From 2001 through 2005, abortion advocates were successful in getting 17 states to reject the federal grants for abstinence funding. The results show they were worse off for their decisions.

For teen girls under the age of 15, the CDC figures showed a 7.5% decrease in abortions in states rejecting the abstinence funding but a larger 23.1 percent decrease in abortions among states accepting the grants. . .

The left believes that EVERYONE in the medical profession should be involved in the slaughter of innocent life.

Will You be Forced to Perform Abortions?

Modern liberals have a habit of denying the inevitable consequences of their policies. They refuse to concede that a healthcare bureaucracy created and run by persons who embrace utilitarian views of human life might unsettle Americans concerned that government would, as Senator Chuck Grassley put it this week, “pull the plug on Grandma.”

And they seem baffled by those who find President Obama’s professed desire to “reduce the number of abortions” difficult to reconcile with his efforts to subsidize and expand access to them.

Worst of all is the left’s position on conscience protections for those with religious or moral objections to participating in life-destroying medicine. Obama says he supports “robust” conscience protections. But don’t be fooled.

A current legal case illustrates what life could be like for pro-life healthcare professionals in the Age of Obama. As a lawyer involved in the case explained in an exclusive interview with this column, if Obama and his allies get their way, all pro-life healthcare workers will soon need to ask themselves: Will I be forced to perform abortions? . . .
