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”.

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.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

The death toll of liberalism tops the combined death toll of both Nazism and Communism! Just because it has appeared to be “kinder and gentler” makes no difference!
