Abortion numbers have dropped five percent -- the biggest
one-year decrease in at least 10 years. An expert says abortion
proponents are misinterpreting the significance of that figure.
What they are saying is it is due to better use of birth control
during tough economic times. But Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel
Steven H. Aden tells OneNewsNow "the abortion industry talks out of
both sides of its mouth" when it comes to figures like this.
"Previously, the industry said that abortion figures
tend to rise during a recession because more people are aborting
their babies to avoid the economic consequences of childbirth," he
"But with this drop in abortions during the recession, they're
saying it's because of better birth control."
But Aden says that is false as well. Studies show birth control
does not correlate with abortions at all. He says "what it really
shows is that America is truly becoming more pro-life and that more
women are wisely choosing to give life to their unborn babies."
In addition, government figures continue to show abortions are
much higher among minorities.
"It's not surprising that the abortion industry would see a rise
in abortions in minority populations because historically they've
always targeted minorities for abortion," he says.
"In fact, Planned Parenthood itself was based on the eugenic
principles of Margaret Sanger, who believed that birth control and
abortion should be available to reduce the numbers of so-called
'undesirables' in the population."
