WHO ignores link between growing incidence of preterm birth and abortion
Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute
The World Health Organization (WHO) has just released an important new study looking at the growing and harmful medical phenomenon of "pre-term birth." The "WHO Global Action Report on Preterm Birth" estimates that more than 1 in 10 babies born in 2010 were born prematurely, that is, "before 37 weeks of pregnancy are completed." This represents an estimated 15 million preterm births, with 1 million deaths directly relating to prematurity. The reasons for this increase are not entirely clear. . . . But one important factor is consciously omitted in the list, abortion. The References section of the WHO report mentions two studies that demonstrate an increased risk of preterm birth associated with abortion. Yet the body of the 126-page long report is completely silent on abortion.  

Guttmacher inflates abortion numbers in Latin America
Turtle Bay and Beyond
A recent article in a medical journal in Mexico completely debunks the Guttmacher Institute numbers on "unsafe" abortions in several Latin American countries. The study found that the Guttmacher methodology is not only unsound scientifically, but unprofessional. According to the authors Guttamcher did not only obtain estimates that are empirically impossible through unsound methodology, but they failed to validate their numbers with estimates that are readily attainable through tested and established epidemiological methods. The article is a very important addition to the growing number of studies on abortion that conflict with the conclusions of well funded organizations that promote abortion worldwide.
