CONFLICT OF INTEREST: Study claiming abortion is safe was funded by those who profit from it, and the media fails to investigate

A report claiming abortion is safe, published in March of 2018 by the National Academies of Science (NASEM), was funded by abortion collaborators and organizations behind abortion expansion efforts. NASEM’s report, “The Safety and Quality of Abortion Care in the United States,” was financed in part by foundations with possible profit motives (a huge conflict of interest), namely Warren Buffett and the Packard Foundation, which seeded the start-up of the abortion pill manufacturer, Danco Laboratories, LLC.

A number of “experts,” some identified previously by Live Action News for abortion connections and conflicts, were thanked in the report for being “essential sources of information.” Those people include Mitchell Creinin, Ann Davis, Diana Greene Foster, Marji GoldUta Landy, Ushma Upadhyay, and Beverly Winikoff. In addition, the study was reviewed by separate “experts,” including Dr. Daniel Grossman and Willie Parker, both abortionists with deep ties to the abortion industry.

Live Action News will continue to document the collaborators pushing to expand abortion — and specifically, the abortion pill. This study is yet another example of the way the media is failing to expose major conflicts of interest in abortion studies.
