According to Wikipedia about one in eight pregnancy-related deaths worldwide is associated with unsafe abortion.
“The World Health Organization estimated in 2011 that each year nearly 42 million women faced with unintended pregnancies have abortions, of which 20 million are unsafe, mostly in countries where abortion is illegal. According to WHO and Guttmacher, approximately 68,000 women die annually as a result of complications of unsafe abortion; and between two million and seven million women each year survive unsafe abortion but sustain long-term damage or disease (incomplete abortion, infection (sepsis), hemorrhage, and injury to the internal organs, such as puncturing or tearing of the uterus). They also concluded abortion is safe in countries where it’s legal, but dangerous in countries where it’s outlawed and performed clandestinely. The WHO reports that in developed regions, nearly all abortions (92%) are safe, whereas in developing countries, more than half (55%) are unsafe. According to WHO statistics, the risk rate for unsafe abortion is 1/270; according to other sources, unsafe abortion is responsible for one in eight maternal deaths.”
And all that is just HILARIOUS to degenerate right-wing Tea Party misogynist Erick Erickson, who tweeted this disgusting message after Texas approved its horrifying and destructive anti-choice bill:
Republicans seem to want women to die, and they’ll undoubtedly get their wish thanks to their destruction of women’s reproductive rights.
Here’s more of Erickson’s disgusting misogynist right-wing hyperbole in this video captured by Media Matters:
