0 Only 25% of American women who want abortions can get them legally.
* 75% of women who die from illegal abortions are non-white.
* 90% of all legal abortions are given to white, private patients.
0 Michigan women received 7,296 abortions in New York last year.
* Extra-hospital to hospital ratio of abortions in U.S. is 100:1.
" The risk of death for an abortion done under proper medical supervision in the
first 12 weeks is less than for a full-time pregnancy.
0 Casualties for illegal abortions are difficult to count. Thousands of botched jobs
turn up in emergency rooms, many more don't make it that far. Many die of acute
peritonitis, shock, hemorrhaging, poisoning, suffer extreme damage to the uterus,
severe disability, or sterility from crude self-inflicted abortions.
