Problem for abortuaries isn't the law

keep abortion legal abortion kills signsA study by the Guttmacher Institute attempts to prove that state laws limiting abortion and establishing standards for clinic conditions harm women. Pro-life groups found, once again, that the organization's research is faulty.

The Guttmacher Institute was formerly affiliated with Planned Parenthood, but even after they parted company, Guttmacher still works to promote the abortion industry. Dr. Randall K. O'Bannon of the National Right to Life Committee says the latest effort from the Institute to make women feel like abortion regulations have harmed them is flawed and misleading because it puts a number of studies together – some 35 years old – and reaches conclusions not supported by the data.

"There's not really any new information here," O’Bannon notes. "It's just the old, tired studies being brought together and under one heading. The claim is that there's no [need] for these laws, but the study does not get down to the nitty-gritty of exactly what's going on in the abortion clinics and why these laws got passed in the first place."

Sorry, we're closedOne example cited by Guttmacher is that half of Texas abortion clinics had to close because of clinic restrictions signed into law.

"But one thing they're ignoring is that there have been clinics that have been closing in the United States for the past 10, 20 years," O’Bannon tells OneNewsNow. "And a large part of it is just because demand is down. We used to have 1.6 million abortions a year. Now, we are finally under a million, and a lot of these clinics just aren’t getting customers, and they closed clinics even before some of these laws got passed."

He says what Guttmacher is ignoring is that the big danger to women in many abortion clinics, including those in Texas, are substandard, filthy conditions.
