New Analysis of Maternal Mortality Confirms Health Care, Not Abortion, Key Factor in Saving Lives

June 2011
National Right to Life News;Jun/Jul2011, Vol. 38 Issue 6/7, p20
The article discusses the results of a new analysis released by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life Global Outreach (MCCL GO) and National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund entitled "Why Legalized Abortion Is Not Good for Women's Health." Advocates of pro-abortion cite the high number of deaths from illegal abortions to justify its legalization. The analysis, meanwhile, shows that improving the health care system, rather than legalizing abortion, solves the problem of maternal deaths in developing countries.
