keep abortion legal abortion kills signsA pro-life organization asserts that international abortion organizations are using false information to try to convince developing nations to legalize abortion.

It is contended that one of the problems in these developing countries is access to healthcare, but Human Life International’s Brian Clowes points out that abortion proponents are way off-base with their deceptive strategy.

“As usual, their rationale is [that] we have to get rid of unsafe abortion,” Clowes contended. “But to these guys, we have to remember that safe abortion for them is always legal abortion, unsafe abortion is illegal abortion and from my travels around the world, I've seen as soon as they get abortion legalized, they lose interest in the health of these women.”

When the United States defunded international abortion organizations, Canada, the United Kingdom and other European countries put additional money in reserve so that they could continue to promote contraception and abortion.

However, Clowes insists that that these nations are using the wrong sales pitch.

“What they're trying to push off on you is that if you legalize abortion, maternal mortality is going to be better,” the pro-family advocate impressed. “But if you look at all the countries in the world, you will see that there is no correlation statistically between whether or not abortion is legal or not … and maternal health. This is because there are many other factors.”

It has been reported that many of the women receiving abortions die due to the lack of pre- and post-natal care, attended child birth and availability of healthcare – if something goes wrong in childbirth. However, it is also noted that the abortion organizations do nothing about these problems and concerns.

Clowes insists that the various developing nations receiving the abortion pitch would be better served if abortion groups spent their hundreds of millions of dollars to deal with the health hazards mentioned above.
