From the US? Considering an abortion? Go to, a database of abortion malpractice information in the USA.

"When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit." Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Quote of the Week: "Statistics are often unreliable"

"In the absence of hard data, the abortion industry has already demonstrated their willingness to supply the press with any number they deem useful. Could the Guttmacher Institute be doing the same thing today? A similar question struck me as I researched abortion in Japan. Remarkably, Mariko Kato reports that the abortion rate in Japan is well below that of the US, roughly 9.3 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-49 (verses 19.6 in the United States). But then I read that Japanese 'obstetrician-gynecologists (ob-gyns) have long underreported abortions to avoid paying taxes on the income they generate.' In places where abortion is legal, it's generally in the industry's best interest to underreport. In places where abortion is illegal, it is always in their best interest to overreport. All that to say, arguments based on statistics are dangerous because statistics are often unreliable"
