TEApublican Right Wing Christians are well-known for their use of hyperbole when framing issues in the worst possible light. They frequently use words that they don’t know the meaning of, or how to spell. This lunatic though just goes in for the simplest, most disgusting way to tell a lie that his tiny little religion-ravaged brain can come up with.
Christian radio host Mat Staver: “What we see happening from this Obama administration is a radical commitment to death, to abortion.”
These idiots are no friend to the truth or facts. As reported by Medical News Today on Feb 13, 2012:
In 2008, rates of teen pregnancies in the US reached their lowest level in nearly 40 years. Since their peak in the early 1990s, they have fallen dramatically, as have rates of resulting births and abortions, according to a new report released this week from the Guttmacher Institute, a not-for-profit sexual health research group whose analysis finds that rates are down among all racial and ethnic groups, although disparities remain.
The report shows that in the US:
Teen pregnancy rate in 2008 was 67.8 pregnancies per 1,000 women aged 15-19 (equal to about 733,000 pregnancies in 7% of US teens).
This is a 43% drop from the peak in 1990, when the rate was 116.9 per 1,000.
The birth rate fell by 35% from 61.8 births per 1,000 teens in 1991 to 40.2 in 2008.
The abortion rate fell by 59% from a peak of 43.5 abortions per 1,000 teens in 1988 to 17.8 in 2008.
Once again we can see that the facts, and truth are congruent with the liberal view. Education, prevention and access to affordable healthcare, are the way to reduce abortions.
