Maternal death rate lowest in abortion free Ireland

Where is the maternal death rate lowest? Ireland, where human abortion is a crime against humanity.

The UNICEF website reports:

Ireland: Maternal mortality ratio†, 2005, adjusted – world rank: #1

SOURCE: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/ireland_statistics.html

The Ireland statistics are no surprise when considering that abortion is proven to cause all sorts of issues, including:

50% increased risk of an ectopic pregnancy after a single abortion

“The investigators conclude that their findings support ‘an argument for the existence of a significant association between induced abortion and subsequent ectopic pregnancy in France.’”

Serious emotional issues

“Our results indicate that over 25% of women who have had pregnancy losses feel they need professional help.  Aborted women appear to require more and more sophisticated grief counseling than those who suffer other types of pregnancy loss.”

Increased future miscarriage rate

“Induced abortion by vacuum aspiration is associated with an increased risk of first-trimester miscarriage in the subsequent pregnancy.”

Increased rate of future premature births

“The investigators conclude from these data that previous elective pregnancy terminations should be considered a risk factor for premature birth in subsequent pregnancies.”
