Abortion isn’t the answer

11891233_835283756588902_7789993735522684599_nIn his book, The Right to Live, the Right to Die, published in 1980former United States Surgeon General, Everett Koop speaks out on abortion and euthanasia.  Concerning one of the reasons often advanced for allowing legal abortion, that it is needed to save the life or health of the mother in some cases, Dr. Koop quotes from Dr. Allan F. Guttmacher’s 1967 book on abortion:

“Today, it is possible for almost any patient to be brought through pregnancy alive, unless she suffers from a fatal illness such as cancer or leukemia , and if so, abortion would be unlikely to prolong much less save life.”

The late Dr. Alan Guttmacher, a staunch supporter of abortion, was president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the one responsible for involving Planned Parenthood (U.S.) in the abortion business.

Today a pregnant woman with leukemia or breast cancer can receive cancer treatments without  harming her unborn child.

In 1951, Dr. Roy Heferman, of Tufts University, told the Congress of the American College of Surgeons:

“Anyone who performs a therapeutic abortion is either ignorant of modern methods of treating the complications of pregnancy or unwilling to take the time to use them. ”

Abortion is not necessary to treat complications in pregnancy.

    Abortion isn’t the answer.

    An unexpected pregnancy can occur. It is possible to commit an error, a mistake, by not taken the necessary precautions. This can create a substantial modification to your future lifestyle. An extra mouth to feed…an added financial burden…a career put on hold…etc.

    My biological mother did just that. She did not take the necessary precautions, and did fall pregnant. She gave birth at the age of 17 in a foreign city (Montreal), alone and isolated from family and fiends. Although she a paltry education, she did however made the conducive decision to place me up for adoption, rather them have me aborted. I was transferred to an orphanage in Hull (Québec) at the young age of a few weeks. I was later adopted by a loving family from Ottawa. My adoptive parents provided me with food, clothe, a roof over my head; and most of all ‘unconditional love’. These same adoptive parents returned to the orphanage and adopted 4 more orphans.

    Yes, there is a profound message to comprehend. Even if there’s an unexpected pregnancy… abortion isn’t the answer.
