COMMENTARY     

Dr. Hemsor Rimsfeld
26th February 2011
They don't disagree, you are talking about 2006, for some reason the author is using 2001 numbers. And neither are good or accurate as the CDC and the "left" attempts to soften the numbers with supposed age limits on (legal) collection of information and several other variances that always hide about 15 percent of the actual abortions. And they finely tuned their prerequisites to collect info so liberal states would be toned down the most. It's all a game to hide just how sick your society really is in the matter of love for human life.

The legalization of abortion in this country is one of the causes of our economic problems today. There simply aren't enough people to keep the economy growing. abortion is the worst form of selfishness there is. It's playing God with an unborn child and deciding that that child has no value. America will continue to decline until Roe v. Wade is overturned.

It's interesting that your "statistics" disagree with CDC stats.

I'll take the CDC stats, thank you.
