Abortion Providers Lying To Women

Here's a great article by Barbara Kay. It analyzes some of the risks associated with abortion and compares the facts to what abortion providers actually say about the procedure.

One of the most common risks to abortion (apart from breast cancer) is the extremely pre-term birth or XPB:
Sometimes XPB is just bad luck. Sometimes it isn't. According to obstetrician Barbara Luke's classic Every Pregnant Woman's Guide to Preventing Premature Birth, "If you have had one or more induced abortions, your risk of prematurity with this pregnancy increases about 30%." After two, a woman's chance of an XPB doubles. A woman who has had four or more abortions runs nine times the risk of XPB, an increase of 800%.
But you'll never hear that from any pro-abortion organization, let alone - from the abortion clinic personnel. And even if someone asks them about possible risks - they'll be lying shamelessly, suggesting there's absolutely no risk associated with having one abortion after the other.
The Morgentaler clinic does not offer consultations prior to abortions. One signs the consent form and proceeds directly to the abortion. A consultation was only reluctantly arranged at Johanne's insistence.
At the Clinique Medicale de l'Alternative, Johanne was received with less suspicion. As at the Morgentaler, there is no consultation prior to the abortion. (I stress this because where prior counselling is offered, as in Sweden, fewer women choose to abort).

Johanne asked a doctor there the same questions, and again, was there a risk to future pregnancies associated with a second abortion? "No, a woman can have one, two, three, four, five abortions with no problem ?"
Imagine an employee of any other medical clinic caught lying to the patient, denying any possible side-effects of a procedure he was pitching... A massive malpractice lawsuit and an immediate dismissal for anyone involved in the fraud would be instant consequences.

But abortions and abortion providers appear to be above the law. Abortions are performed with no prior consultation; without informed consent - false information and outright lies can't be considered as such. Judging from the way radical pro-aborts in New Brunswick oppose the provincial regulations which require abortions to be performed in a hospital by a gynecologist, it would be reasonable to conclude that abortuaries don't necessarily have the best qualified people to perform this injurious procedure...
So the fact that women are guinea pigs is something else you won't see on the pro-abortion fact sheets or on consent forms. What other abortion risks are women not being warned about? Too many to mention in one column, that's for sure.
Can't agree more.
