Abortion is the leading cause of death in U.S.

2016 looks to be the Year of the Baby Bust.

As reported by ABC News on August 9, 2016, fertility rates in America — the number of babies born per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44 — are at the lowest levels ever recorded, according to researchers in a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Here’s a reason that nobody wants to talk about: Abortion.

A study by a team of scientists at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte reveals the terrible toll of abortion. It is the leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for almost a third (32.1%) of all deaths in 2009.

The study by James Studnicki, Sharon MacKinnon, and John W. Fisher was published as “Induced Abortion, Mortality, and the Conduct of Science” in the Open Journal of Preventive Medicine on June 17, 2016.

Here’s a figure from page 173 of Studnicki, et al.‘s report, showing abortion as the leading cause of death for Hispanics, Whites, and Blacks.

YPLL by cause of death, U.S., 2009

Studnicki, et al. begin by taking issue with the fact that abortion deaths are not included among U.S. death statistics although from the standpoint of science, abortion is a human death:

“There is no credible scientific opposition to the fact that a new genetically distinct human organism begins with fertilization and that, simply stated, human life begins at conception. Nor is there dispute that, in the absence of induced abortion and with the exception of natural fetal losses, conception usually results in a live [human] birth.”

Which, of course, makes it curious why “abortion is not reported as a cause of death in the vital statistics system in the United States. Nor is this exclusion limited to the United States. Although there are nearly 200 nations where the procedure is legal, and a conservatively estimated 45-50 million [abortions] are performed annually worldwide, there is no country which considers induced abortion as a reportable death.”

The exclusion of abortion in death rates is a gaping hole in the study of demography and government policy-making concerning resource allocation because “fertility, mortality and migration are the principal determinants of population increases, decreases, and demographic composition in any nation.”

This exclusion of abortion in death rates especially impacts racial minorities in the U.S. because abortion disproportionately affects certain racial/ethnic minorities — namely, blacks and Hispanics.

Of the total 3,589,163 abortions in the U.S. in 2009, abortions accounted for:

  • 16.4% of Non-Hispanic White (NHW) deaths
  • 61.1% of Non-Hispanic Black (NHB) deaths
  • 64.0% of Hispanic deaths

In fact, abortion accounts for 2 out of every 3 deaths among Blacks and Hispanics.

For Blacks and Hispanics, homicide and suicide were also ranked in the top 10 causes of death, but both causes-of-death were far out-ranked by abortion. Abortion takes a deadlier toll among Blacks compared to other racial/ethnic groups: The abortion death rate for Blacks is 5.9 times that of Whites and 2.1 times that of Hispanics.

#BlackLivesMatter

And so, as the study concludes that although —

“Abortion is undoubtedly the most demographically consequential cause of death for Hispanics and NHB [Blacks]. Yet, there is evidence that the scientific community is minimally engaged in informing effective public policy on the topic of abortion….

The exclusion of abortion as a cause of death, in spite of conclusive science to contrary, and the relative paucity of information and funded research on a topic of demonstrated consequence to the demographic composition of the society, may be the ultimate example of science denial…. The appropriate role of science is to inform this societal dialogue with objective information. Labeling abortion as a preventable death is not an argument for restricting access to a legal abortion. However, refusing to acknowledge abortion as a death undermines the role of science and the value of transparency so fundamental to a free society.”

And yet 90+% of Blacks support Hillary Clinton, who is unconditionally and absolutely pro-abortion. They give new meaning to the term “useful idiots”.

  1. So let’s fight for the right for a woman to fornication indiscriminantly and murder her baby, and for Muslims to enter the country, have kids and put them on welfare.
    Oh and take away our guns. That sounds like a plan.

  3. This is a huge problem. Once upon a time, I used to work around a lot of Navy personnel. Some of the women used abortion as birth control. They shocked me to no end with their callous casualness about it. Some had had five or six abortions.

    Many have traced the roots of Planned Parenthood. It is a classic example of what happens when evil takes root.

  5. And yet Cecile Richards tweets this: “We can’t be “stronger together” if we ignore the inhumanity displayed toward black women.”

    And she tweets this: “remember that freedom from violence is #ReproJustice”
    Their lack of self awareness is frightening.

  14. The Devil roams this Earth, just as St. Peter said, “like a hungry lion, seeking whom he may devour.” MARGARET SANGER is the fallen-away Catholic who has killed more human beings that Lenin, Trotsky, Beria, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro and Pol Pot and QUEEN ELIZABETH COMBINED!!! She is HISTORY’S # 1 GENOCIDAL MANIAC! And she keeps on killing long after her death! But she succeeded where the other monsters did not: She got everyday people to go along with the con.

    Hitler had been raised in the Faith. (As a matter of fact, so had the Castro Brothers). Long Story Short, Catholics ARE NOT the most dangerous people in the World; Those former Catholics who have successfully rejected their faith and belief are the most dangerous people in the World!

    And I mention Queen Elizabeth for the same reason I mention Sanger: It’s the surreptitious and covert hiddeness of the act that leads people to gloss over the real cause-and-effect in question. Just as pro-choice people refuse to see that abortion ends human life, people also refuse to see that it has been the policies of England, since at least the end of World War II, that have effectively killed—through famine, war, disease, water shortage and regime change—over ONE BILLION Africans. Those policies, along with abortion, have killed more people than have the atomic bombings of Japan and Fukushima.

    STEAL THIS TERM: Abortion and contraception are EXTINCTION PROTOCOLS: They are planks in the Eugenic Agenda, and that Agenda has been institutionalized by the UN, with their Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 programs.

    The Devil knew that IF he could get the Catholic Church out of the way, then the Gates of Hell would be opened and flood this Earth with evil. And since the death of Pius XII (the only good Pope in my lifetime) he has succeeded. THE ONE AND ONLY EFFECTIVE RESISTANCE HE HAD IS IN ECLIPSE! MAKE NO MISTAKE: The World is under Judgment because of this, and the Anti-Christ System we have all been living under for our entire lives is about to become emboldened as never before! Regrettably, Ronald Reagan failed to vanquish Communism, for this reason: ONLY GOD CAN VANQUISH THE SYSTEM OF JUDAS ISCARIOT AND HIS MASTER, SATAN. It has changed its appearance. It has changed its disguise. It may have even changed its Headquarters: No Matter. Its only promise is poverty, ignorance, concentration camps, contraception, abortion, euthanasia, slavery, genocide and death!!!

    How does it feel NOW, Mrs. Sanger? Is it really “better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven?” Is it really better now, O’Brien, that “the orgasm has become the property of the Party?” ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?

    • I agree Steven. The Church has been under attack since the beginning. We have survived for two thousand years. When the clergy become corrupt, the laity corrects them, and vice versa.

      Of course the “fallen away” do these things. If they weren’t “fallen away” they would have difficulties. The worst attacks are from within.

      How could it be otherwise. If there were no attacks, we would not be effective. Satan wars against us because he fears us. He should.

      It IS amazing how Sanger receives nothing but praise for her efforts at genocide. Look at Bill Gates. All of them eugenicists. They even get caught selling body parts from murdered infants and…….what? Nothing, that’s what. What do they have to do, barbecue one on TEE VEE?

      I’ve read about a lot of evil over recorded history. I tend to take “the long view” of things. I’m not sure how we stack up today. I say “WE”, meaning our societies. The things they enjoy I can’t even imagine.

    Equality; Inherent Rights.
    “All people are equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights; among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; to secure these rights, governments are instituted, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. As applied to the right to life, the terms ‘people’ and ‘person’ shall apply to every human being at any stage of development.”
    REALITY CHECK- every State government is filled with pagans and miscreants. Just as in the days of Noah!
