Think you know all the statistics about Abortion? Think again.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Please take a second to view these factual statistics, whether you are prolife or prochoice. They are nonbiased.

This particular article is NOT outdated. The sources cited are as early as 2009 and the article was written last year.

rape and mothers under age 15 make up a VERY minimal % of abortions. 

Quoting gwebkeijmmm:

Forcing an 11 year old child to carry a baby and give birth because she was raped and it resulted in pregnancy is wrong period.

Quoting LoveMyLilPeople:

I don't care what the "facts" are.  Abortion is wrong.  Period.

To Pro-Lifers:

Fact: Abortions are legal, mind your own business.

Whether you think they are wrong, just don't get one. But I do not want the government all up in the business of my reproductive organs.

 Amen.

Meh... My fiance and i were discussing the subject of abortion yesterday

It's sad that everything in America is looked at as being disposable..... Not the right time to have a baby? Sure go ahead and kill the living thing inside of you that you created *smh* I really will never understand.....

Fact: if some of these babies were born they are at a much much higher risk of being abused & neglected. That adds more taxes to the government in that child's lifetime than most people can wrap their head around.
Fact: even the well loved and taken care of babies will most likely be on some sort of state/federal aide.
Fact: unless you are willing to put your money & time where your heart is, your morality is useless.

 Except, there is one HUGE flaw with that statistic. According to the Department of Justice, only 26% of rapes are reported. The FBI puts it closer to 37%. So, since the vast majority of rapes go unreported, a rational human being would understand there is no way they could accurately state that "fact". And, as you said, even if it was only 1%, it is still 1%, and that 1% represents THOUSANDS of women.

 LMAO Sorry. I live in reality. Any abortion post is going to get ugly. You should know that, by now. And, when the facts are disputable, I will dispute them. Sorry.
