Legalizing Abortion Does Not Reduce Maternal Mortality

Facts are stubborn things:
New York City, N.Y., Feb 28, 2011 / 03:49 pm (CNA).- Chile, a country that does not allow abortion, recently received the International Protect Life Award for being the country with the lowest maternal mortality rate in Latin America.
A spokesman for the pro-life leaders, Dan Ziedler spoke with CNA on Feb. 25, saying, “It should be noted abortion is not allowed in Chile under any circumstances. Chile respects the life of both the mother and the child, the two are equal under the law.”

“I think we should praise this judicial system and acknowledge that the claim by many abortion supporters – that the practice must be legalized in order for maternal mortality to decrease – is not true,” Ziedler said.
So who should be accused of employing "deceptive practices"? The Crisis Pregnancy Centers, that provide women with information about alternatives to abortion, or the abortion mills, that often have "women's health" or "reproductive health" in their name, yet promote practices that result in more maternal deaths?
