Abortion not part of women’s health care

Tuesday’s Associated Press article, “UW studies birth control access,” confirmed the fact that Washington state has completely distorted what women’s health is. The writer said, “Washington state has a long history of bold moves regarding women’s health.” According to the article, legalized abortion, the morning-after pill and emergency contraception are a part of women’s health.

Years ago, the pro-abortion argument was that the fetus was just a blob of tissue. After it became very apparent the fetus was not just a blob of tissue and was in fact a human being, they dropped that line of reasoning. Now the main focus of the pro-abortion agenda is “woman’s choice and health.” Their goal is to keep the attention on the woman and avert attention from the pre-born baby.

Unfortunately for the pro-abortion movement, it is now becoming more and more known that abortion of any kind is not good for a woman’s health – not only physically but emotionally as well. Post abortion syndrome is a very real and widespread problem. I know a number of women who have suffered negative after effects of an abortion.

You do not hear the mainstream media address this problem. I’m guessing they fear pro-abortion backlash. Women have been lied to long enough about abortion. It’s time that the truth gets out and women realize that abortion is one of the worst things a woman can do for her “health.”
