Shredding The Myths about Abortion’s “Benefits” to Women

Myth #5 (of 15), another Q&A from Planned Parenthood’s webpage, “Choosing Abortion - Questions And Answers:”

5. “Does an early abortion make ectopic, or tubal, pregnancy more likely in the future?
No. Not unless a serious infection occurs. Infection occurs in only one out of 300 first-trimester abortions and only rarely does it affect future pregnancies.”
Planned Parenthood says that 90% of all abortions are first trimester, so of the 1.26 Million (90% of 1.4 M) such abortions every year, about 4,200 women yearly will suffer from these infections.

And be at risk for tubal pregnancies later.

In the Journal of American Medical Association in 1985, and in 2 other studies in 1982 in the American Journal of Public Health and the American Journal of Epidemiology, scientists found that:
“Abortion is significantly related to an increased risk of subsequent ectopic pregnancies. Such pregnancies, in turn, are life threatening and may cause reduced fertility.”
Myth #6 to be shredded tomorrow. I’m posting one a day every day from Oct. 19 through Election Day. Prior myths shredded can be found as follows:
#1, #2, #3, #4.
