According to the World Health Organization, an abortion is unsafe if the person providing the abortion does not have the necessary skills or if the abortion takes place in an environment that does not meet minimal medical standards. When we look at inspection reports for abortion facilities from around the United States, many of these facilities fail to meet minimal health standards.

Medicine is the field of applied science related to the art of healing by diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. It encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness in human beings. No doctor goes to medical school to become an abortionist. It is only by fault and failure that this happens.
There is no proof anywhere that abortion improves health, therefore it is not a medically necessary procedure under any circumstances. The medical necessity argument is a “knee jerk” reaction to political, judicial, and legislative developments. Roe v Wade made the physician the final arbiter of the abortion decision in the second and third trimesters. This is where the “medical necessity” response began…the “life and health of the mother” clause that was broadened after the Doe v Bolton decision. Look at the statistics and the reasons for abortion will surprise you. None of them are procured for the “life and health of the mother”. Carrying a baby to term always poses risks, many of which are unmentioned and unforeseen. There are so many things that can go wrong and so many things that can unpredictably go right as well.
Here are the most important reasons given for terminating an unwanted pregnancy according to the Guttmacher Institute:
*73% ~ Cannot afford a baby now
*69% ~ A baby would interfere with school/ employment/ability to care for dependents
*48% ~ Would be a single parent/ having relationship problems
Not one woman expressed that she was obtaining an abortion to save her life or maintain/improve her health. In this country, we have made medicine a consumer product anyway, so in our opinion and perception, we make our own medical decisions regarding what pills to take, what procedures to have and what my diagnosis is or is not. So, seemingly this debate has taken on the same tone. However, abortion is never a medically necessary procedure it is always elective and, unfortunately remains a choice that women have. Abortion always ends in death.
