Read it and weep

"Worldwide, about one-fourth of the approximately 180 million pregnancies known to occur each year are resolved by abortion. Abortions numbered an estimated 46 million in 1995, but given the uncertainty of the data, that number could be as low as 42 million or as high as 50 million. About 35 in every 1,000 women aged 1544 have an abortion each year. "
International abortion statistics from the Alan Guttmacher institute (an affiliate of Planned Parenthood).
(my comment) Resolution? Pregnancies are 'resolved'? Sounds like newspeak to me.


I used to work as a secretary in an Obs & Gynae Unit where the remains of a baby after an abortion were referred to as POC - products of conception. I hated it. I was never so glad to leave a job despite having a crazy schoolgirl crush on the consultant I worked for.
