Myth: Abortions have extremely high rates of complications.Reality: Yeah, back alley ones with coat hangers and vacuums and giant doses of random herbs tend to be messy. But Americans from 1973 until, give or take, last week? One of those ‘safe and legal’ procedures gives less than a 0.3% risk of complications that require hospitalization.The fatality rate of all abortions in the US from 1998 to 2010 is 0.0007%. By comparison, complications from pregnancy in the US have a 0.017% fatality rate.It’s almost like they’re not pro-life.
Myth: Most women regret abortions.Reality: A 2018 study supported that the most typical emotional response to an abortion is relief. Only about 6% of patients had mainly negative emotions about the procedure. The vast majority of patients’ did not experience a change of heart about their choice five years out.
Myth: Didn’t Roe (of Roe v. Wade) regret her decision though?Reality: Nope on two fronts- she didn't get an abortion and she never really became pro-life. A few years ago before her death in 2017, Jane Roe, aka Norma McCorvey, confessed that the pro-life movement threw a small pile of cash at her to publicly bat for their side.
Myth: The pro-life movement has always been a thing.Reality: Ronald Reagan signed one of the most liberal abortion laws in the country as governor of California in 1967, six years before Roe. Republicans and religious organizations we most commonly think of as abortion opponents saw its legality as providing safe medical care for women. There are quotes in support of abortion from Baptist groups from that era will blow your goddamn mind.Some Catholic anti-abortion groups had already formed in the sixties. Then through the seventies, the pro-life movement gained steam. The broad coalition of the ‘New Right’ started coming together in large part around propaganda about protecting fetuses.
Myth: Most abortions happen after a baby is a whole viable human.Reality: 91% of abortions happen in the first trimester when you’d be hard pressed to look at it and differentiate it from a fish fetus. The majority of clinics do not provide late term abortions, and the procedure has different limitations state by state at various points in pregnancy. Virtually without exception, late term abortions are due to the types of health issues that leave pregnant women devastated over a baby that was very much wanted.
Myth: IUDs cause abortions.Reality: IUDs work by a few different mechanisms of action, one of which involves stopping a fertilized egg from implanting. Pregnancy begins after an egg implants. If you don’t believe me, ask all the people who have been through heartbreaking rounds of IVF and have had fertilized eggs deposited that didn’t implant. They were not pregnant for the few weeks between deposit and negative pregnancy test; they were simply never pregnant. Which is understandable because about half of fertilized eggs just naturally fail to implant.If God exists, and this is the standard for abortion, God’s one hell of an abortionist.
Myth: The morning after pill causes an abortion.Reality: The morning after pill is like a megadose of the birth control pill. It’s recommended to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex or birth control failure. Much like an IUD, it can prevent implantation. It can also prevent ovulation. It can’t be an abortifacient because nobody’s pregnant within three days of an “I meant to pull out but then I thought of Helen Mirren.”
Myth: Jesus and the Bible say abortion is a one-way ticket to hell.Reality: The word abortion isn’t in the Bible, and it’s definitely not in the super-Jesusy chapters. The Bible is kinda ‘eh’ on children as a whole. Hosea 9:14 says “give them a miscarrying womb.” Isaiah 13:18 preaches ‘They shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children.” Numbers 31:17 espouses “Now therefore k!ll every m@le among the little ones.” Which I censored partially because, Jesus Christ, the bible is gonna get me put on a watch list.

I couldn't find stats on how many actually survive abortion attempts but it is rare.
Abortion ends a human life.
Right now, they are committing insurrection against one of the three branches of the government.

You cannot claim a fatality rate of an un-birthed, un-sentient blob that is inconsequential to human life as we know it.
There are many reasons one may kill another for and abortion is a completely different dynamic, creep!
That you use Back To The Future as a example of life vanishing, shows how retarded and inane you really are….
There is NO science to support your claim that the fetus is an "actual" person/human.
Don't you care about any other health consequences that could affect the pregnant mother, whose life CAME first and she may need to abort to save her own?
If you don't know, err on the side of caution. It's better to be wrong the other direction.
An inanimate object cannot became animate and a species cannot change into another species.
