And no, I’m not talking about MS-13 (BOOGA! BOOGA!). I’m talking about abortion (boldface mine):
It’s not hard to see what a pro-life world looks like. It looks like a world with a lot of dead women in it.
El Salvador has a “culture of life.” There, abortion is banned for any reason. Estimates from the Ministry of Health put the number of illegal abortions performed at 19,290 between 2005 and 2008. However, it’s difficult to trace illegal activity properly, so some other estimates claim this is closer to the annual average. We do know, from a 2011 study by the World Health Organization that 11 percent of the women undergoing these illegal abortions die. That is, at the bare minimum, over 2,000 women.
Amnesty International reports that suicide now accounts for 57 percent of deaths of pregnant females ages 10-19 in El Salvador. Because in an attempt to terminate their pregnancies, women are “ingesting rat poison or other pesticides, and thrusting knitting needles, pieces of wood and other sharp objects into the cervix.”
It was not so long ago that women in the United States were in a position similar to the one women in El Salvador find themselves in today.
Before the passage of Roe. Vs. Wade in 1973, it’s estimated that between 250 and 8,000 American women were dying per year of illegal abortions.
Right now, I’m really angry at a professional Democratic class that can’t win off year elections. Women will die because of their incompetence. And if we save our fellow citizens, it will be in spite of the professional Democrats, not thanks to them.
