  • Pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute accidentally proves Trump was right to pull US out of WHO

    July 10, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Trump administration’s decision to withdraw the United States from the corrupt, ineffective, pro-China World Health Organization (WHO) has angered a lot of people at home and abroad … not because it will negatively impact global health but because it’ll negatively impact the agendas and bottom lines of various groups that have been exploiting the guise of “health services.” And nobody has worn that disguise more effectively than the abortion industry, whose allies go all the way to the top of the global health establishment. The WHO’s website declares as “essential” the “right” to “access...
  • The real story behind US abortion decline: No, It's Not Because of Better Contraception

    The Guttmacher Institute released updated U.S. abortion data for 2017 showing that Americas abortion decline continues. Overall, the U.S. abortion rate fell by approximately 20 percent between 2011 and 2017. Furthermore, the decline was widespread, with 45 of 50 U.S. states reporting declining rates.Considering the salience of abortion as a public policy issue this year, it is unsurprising that Guttmachers new data received a great deal of media coverage. On Wednesday morning, the five U.S. newspapers with the largest online circulation, USA Today, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times, all...

    Alan Guttmacher, once president of Planned Parenthood, in 1969: I would like to give our voluntary means of population control full opportunity in the next 10 to 12 years. Then, if these dont succeed, we may have to go into some kind of coercion, not worldwide, but possibly in such places as India, Pakistan, Indonesia Alan Guttmacher, The American Journal of Nursing (June, 1969).

    The Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI) is at it again.For those not familiar with AGI, it is a $30-million-a-year research group based in Washington, D.C., and New York City. Named for Alan Guttmacher, former president of Planned Parenthood, the mission of the organization is to "advance sexual and reproductive health" around the world. This makes sense, since it was founded in 1968 as the research arm of the largest chain of abortion mills in the United States, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), which currently carries out more than 300,000 abortions annually.In other words, a person who believes in...
  • About That New Abstinence Study

    Somebody up there has a wicked sense of humor. How else do you explain the release this week of a new study by John B. Jemmott III proving that an abstinence-only education program works? First President Obama slashes virtually all federal funding for abstinence-only education programs in 2010. ("It's about time that evidence-based management -- and sanity -- return to family planning programs," applauded Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y.) Then just last week, the Guttmacher Institute -- which is affiliated with Planned Parenthood, but usually does good science anyway -- reported that teen pregnancy rates are once again rising. Oddly, with...

    Valerie Huber of the NAEA. Washington D.C., Jan 26, 2010 / 09:25 pm (CNA).- The Guttmacher Institute released a study on Jan. 26 claiming that abstinence-only education programs are to blame for a rise in teen pregnancies and abortions in 2006. However, abstinence education proponent Valerie Huber is denouncing the researchers' conclusions as terribly simplistic and disingenuous.In a press release on Tuesday, the Guttmacher Institute gave a history behind its findings and claimed that the significant drop in teen pregnancy rates in the 1990s was overwhelmingly the result of more and better use of contraceptives among sexually active teens....

    Abortions in the United States fell 33 percent between 1974 and 2004, but sizeable differences among racial and economic groups continue to exist as to who gets an abortion, a new report says. While the number of abortions among teens has also dropped dramatically, down 50 percent, abortion rates are still high among older women with children and poor women, according to the report from the Guttmacher Institute. "There's been a shift in the population of women obtaining abortions relative to 30 years ago," said Rachel Jones, a senior research associate at the institute. "They are older, they are more...

    Washington, DC ( -- A new report from the research group associated with Planned Parenthood expands on its previous report showing abortions at their lowest point since 1974. The new Alan Guttmacher Institute report finds abortions are more likely to be done on women who are black, older, or lower-income.The good news for pro-life advocates is that the rate of abortion in the United States is at its lowest level since 1974, having declined 33% from a peak of 29 abortions per 1,000 women aged 1544 in 1980 to 20 per 1,000 in 2004.The new report, which focuses on...

    In a report released Tuesday, the New York-based Guttmacher Institute ranked all 50 states in their efforts to reduce unintended pregnancy and found a diverse collection of states at the top. California ranked first and New York ranked fifth, a result that may seem predictable, given both states' liberal orientations toward social issues. But between them in the highest rankings sit three conservative states - Alaska, South Carolina, and Alabama.

    New York, NY ( -- If there is any place in the nation women can get free or low-cost birth control, it's New York City. But a new report indicates the abortion rate in the nation's largest city is three times higher than the national average despite the easy access to birth control and contraception. While a survey from the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a part of Planned Parenthood, shows fewer than 20 percent of all pregnancies nationwide end in abortion, 72 pregnancies end in abortion in New York for every 100 births. More than 250 abortions are done every...

    Concerned Women for America ^ | 6/26/08 | Marian L. Ward
    For talent and treasure, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) has no equal in the baby-killing business. And business is booming. PPFAs budget, as stated in its 2006-2007 annual report, crested the $1 billion mark. Approximately 1/3 of this obscene budget (particularly for a group classified as non-profit) was provided by taxpayers like you and me. For the number crunchers out there, thats over $336 million in federal, state and local government grants and contracts. What does one do with $336 million? Well, as a project expands to fill the time allotted, so plans expand to fill the funds...

    No level-headed American would advocate Nazi-style 'medicine' in which animal experiments are bypassed and testing is FIRST performed on humans. Dr. Sharon Camp, President of AGI, conceded in a 16 January 2008 e-mail to Brent Rooney that the Alan Guttmacher Institute could not cite one published animal study of vacuum aspiration (aka 'suction') abortion and later risk of premature birth; 'suction' abortion is the most common abortion procedure in the U.S. and Canada.

    Washington, DC ( -- A leading African-American pro-life advocate says Barack Obama and other black leaders must confront the phenomenon of black women having abortions at significantly higher rates than their white counterparts. Instead of advocating more abortions, the leader says Obama and others should promote alternatives. Walter Hoye, who heads community relations at the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church of Berkeley, California, told about the problem.Hoye points to new statistics published in January by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a research affiliate of Planned Parenthood.AGI found black women were 4.8 times as likely as non-Hispanic white women to have...

    Deirdre A. McQuade, an official of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), criticized a study by researchers from the Guttmacher Institute and the World Health Organization published in the October 13, 2007 issue of The Lancet, calling for the global legalization and promotion of abortion, Induced Abortion: Estimated Rates and Trends Worldwide. Some say the new Guttmacher study shows that legalizing abortions makes them safe; but the study's methodology is flawed. The authors start out by simply defining safe abortions as those that meet legal requirements' in countries with permissive laws, said Ms. McQuade. But by this unusual...
  • Repeat Abortions in the US on the Rise; Now Half of All Abortions [AGI spokeswoman: 'Bush's fault']

    Repeat abortions used to account for about 40 percent of all abortions in the United States, but a new study from the Alan Guttmacher Institute shows that figure is on the rise. Now, about half of every abortion done annually is an abortion done on a woman who has had at least one previous abortion. The study from AGI, the research arm of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, examined the abortions done on women in 2002. AGI said the typical profile of a woman having a repeat abortion is someone over the age of 30 who already has...

    For every 100 babies born in New York City, women had 74 abortions in 2004, according to newly released figures that reaffirm the city as the abortion capital of the country. And abortions for out-of-town women performed in the city increased from 57 to 70 out of every 1,000 between 1996 and 2004, a subtle yet noticeable trend that experts say may reflect growing hurdles against the procedure in more conservative parts of the country.The new Vital Statistics report released by the city Department of Health this month shows there were 124,100 live births, 11,700 spontaneous abortions and 91,700 induced...

    I have never understood how the reasons given don't jive with the fact that a woman is not required by law to keep a baby she has born ... she may put it up for adoption, or simply abandon the child to State care. Forgetting any other aspects ... the reasons given do not make logical sense. Saying one doesn't want to be pregnant or doesn't want to give birth would make LOGICAL sense as reason for an abortion. However, this reason is not given.

    Reasons U.S. Women Have Abortions: Quantitative and Qualitative Perspectives By Lawrence B. Finer, Lori F. Frohwirth, Lindsay A. Dauphinee, Susheela Singh and Ann M.

Demographic changes over the last two decades highlight the need for a reassessment of why women decide to have abortions.METHODS: In 2004, a structured survey was completed by 1,209 abortion patients at 11 large providers, and in-depth interviews were conducted with 38 women at four sites. Bivariate analyses examined differences in the reasons for abortion across subgroups,...
