In the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that women, in consultation with their physician, have a constitutionally protected right to have an abortion in the early stages of pregnancy. Since that time, an estimated 46 million abortions occur each year worldwise.
We oppose the practice of abortion and urge the active development and employment of alternatives. The moral worth of human beings is absolute. Human beings are not "potential" human beings; rather, they are human beings with potential.
Abortion complications are underreported, especially given that there is no requirement to report complications and most women do not return to their abortion clinic for the complications they have. Health complications that can arise from abortion include perforated uterus, pelvis inflammatory disease, future miscarriages, breast cancer risk increase, ectopic pregnancy increase and even death.
