Abortion Safer Than Having a Baby?

The latest pearl of wisdom from the UK’s respected Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists is that “terminating a pregnancy was safer than having a baby”. One could take this further and say it is even safer not to have sex in the first place – ever – but that has not yet dawned on this elite body of physicians. Trying to curb any sexual activity is not politically correct and, therefore, frowned upon by all. Melanie Phillips offers a sobering opinion on this latest pronouncement.

From MailOnline.com

You really do have to wonder which is the more extreme effect of our politically correct culture — the way in which it brutalises people, or the way it turns them into cerebrally-challenged automatons?

Both attributes were on startling display in the latest piece of advice to emanate from no less august a body than the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

This guidance, intended for all doctors, nurses and counsellors advising women contemplating having an abortion, said such women should be told that terminating a pregnancy was safer than having a baby…safer for whom, precisely? Not for the baby, certainly.

Experts have said that although some progress has been made in reducing Britain’s world-beating rate of teenage pregnancies, abortion is increasingly being seen as the major method of contraception for many young women…(any) sense of balance went out of the window long ago under the pressure of ideologues screaming about ‘a woman’s right to choose’, which reframed abortion solely as concerning the interests of the mother.

It is dismaying indeed — even if not altogether surprising — that even doctors specialising in bringing babies into the world have succumbed to this savage reductionism.
