Government reports documenting the ever-rising U.S. rate of pre-term birth and infant mortality do not connect the dots with our nation’s most-liberal-in-the-world abortion policy and unregulated IVF industry
U.S. government statisticians continue to scratch their heads about runaway prematurity-driven infant mortality in a nation with the best medical care in the world, while overlooking how a three-decades rise in abortions matches the rise in preterm births. From Nov. 4 New York Times :
“High rates of premature birth are the main reason the United States has higher infant mortality
than do many other rich countries, government researchers reported Tuesday in their first detailed analysis of a longstanding problem. In Sweden, for instance, 6.3 % of births were premature, compared with 12.4 % in the United States in 2005… Infant mortality also differed markedly: for every 1,000 births in the United States, 6.9 infants died before they turned 1, compared with 2.4 in Sweden. 29 other countries also had lower rates [than U.S.].”
Researchers faulted poverty and deficient insurance coverage and NEVER mention the ‘politically incorrect’ –but avoidable– risk for prematurity and infant mortality –ABORTION!
The simplest biological explanation for the abortion-prematurity link is that, during abortion, the action of the suction and fetal dissection:
- create microscopic uterine tears and an “incompetent” cervix that inhibit carrying future pregnancies to full term;
- introduce infection from the instruments and/or moves the woman’s existent STD infection further into the uterus, causing pre-term delivery of future pregnancies.
Complicit in hiding the abortion risk factor is the March of Dimes organization. While promoting November as “prematurity prevention” month, March of Dimes unjustifiably is silent about the well-documented link between abortion and future prematurity, as published in over 120 relevant studies, a recent meta-analysis, standard medical texts and even accepted by Time magazine.
[Read a thorough exposition of the March of Dimes , who have declared themselves abortion “neutral”, but have long worked to develop tests used to destroy the disfavored unborn. They fund Planned Parenthood, promote embryo-destroying research and assist the IVF industry.]
KANSAS’ state health agency, KDHE, disserved citizens–and good science– in their July implementation of the Woman’s Right to Know and See Act by publishing informational materials that fail to warn of the proven impact of abortion on future prematurity, low birth weight babies and infant mortality.
Our nation spends over $26 billion for care of pre-term deliveries (infants born before 37 weeks). Pre-term birth is the leading cause of cerebral palsy and developmental delay in surviving children. Prematurity raises the risk of mental retardation, autism, schizophrenia, and behavioral disorders.
The high rate of prematurity is not due to naturally-occurring twins and triplets. Certainly the infant mortality researchers should have pointed out the avoidable risk engendered by the sky-rocketing number of artificially-engineered pregnancies with multiple embryos (whether for aging Hollywood stars or ‘Octomom’)– but of course that would have involved dissing another sacred cow, the unregulated IVF industry.
