You type this over and over and never respond to any of the differences between a medical procedure that has few if any at all government regulation and oversight of its facilities and staff … and an industry that fight s vigorously any attempts have normal medical clinics standards imposed on it. Abortions are less expensive to provide because no one cares about whether the child lives or dies and in fact the death of the child is the main purpose - the intended out come! Abortions cost less because the doctor does not provide services to two patients for 9 months before delivery and 6 to 9 weeks post delivery, Abortions costs less because in addition to the 10 plus months of care and all the tests and procedures that occur during that time there is a hospital stay, more tests and procedures … And the liability issues are huge - the clinic and the hospital do have to meet standards, they all - every practitioner - the, clinic, hospital, lab technicians, nurses, pharmaceutical providers, pharmacists and medical equipment manufacturers all have to have liability insurance - and if the child is not perfect - everyone and anyone could become the target of a liability suit …
Are you saying that you want the same standard of medical care for a live birth that is provided for an abortion? I have asked you this many times in many threads - you never reply … If a person is in a crisis pregnancy and truly cannot afford a delivery there are resources -
You do realize that there have been fewer abortions – fewer babies being killed – while Obama was president, and prior to that, fewer during Clinton’s term? If the declining abortion rates start to reverse course and there’s an INCREASE in killing babies in the next four years, your “pro-life” guy – the one who thinks Planned Parenthood does “wonderful work” – is going to have a lot of explaining to do.
You do realize that economics is never a justifiable reason to end a persons life?
Abortions have been declining for years - whether democrat or republican in White House or Congress - sometimes the rate of decline is slower … but also
True abortion rates are hard to decipher - they ways in which they gather the statistics change - some years - some states do not report at all - etc
With chemically induced abortions and over the counter access - you cannot know the true numbers …
That said - Science is on our side … it is a baby, DNA, Ultrasounds are our best friend … but then - that is why Planned Parenthood fights legislation requiring women be shown and ultrasound before an abortion is provided and also why they fought to prevent Ultrasound machines placed in Shopping Malls where women could just drop in for an Ultrasound without going to a clinic … PP does not want women to make an informed “choice”
