That’s the actual headline and pretty much their actual argument.
“Don’t have babies, goy, it’s bad for you.”
Pregnancy is a life-threatening condition. Women die from being pregnant. We have known that for thousands of years.
They die from hemorrhage, infection, pre-eclampsia (which can lead to fatal seizures), obstructed labor, amniotic fluid embolism, thromboembolism, a ruptured uterus, retained placenta, hydatidiform mole, choriocarcinoma and many other causes that fill the obstetrics textbooks. Modern medicine can prevent and treat many, but not all, of these conditions. Some potentially fatal problems cannot be foreseen or prevented. Pregnancy always comes with some irreducible risk of death.
The measure of risk to a woman’s life from pregnancy itself is called the “maternal mortality ratio.” That is the number of women who die of causes related to or aggravated by pregnancy per 100,000 live births.
The chance of women dying as a consequence of pregnancy has been getting closer to zero the more we move forward with science, medicine and technology.
Now is the safest time in recorded history for women to be pregnant and to deliver babies.
The data show that the risk is reducible, and that is has been getting significantly reduced as the years go by.
In Alabama, the overall maternal mortality ratio in 2018 was 11.9 per 100,000. Among white women, the 2018 maternal mortality ratio was 5.6; among black women, it was 27.6, making black women in Alabama almost five times more likely to die as a result of pregnancy than white women. For the United States overall, the maternal mortality ratio was 20.7.
By comparison, a study in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology on abortion mortality from 1998 to 2010 found that for the 16.1 million abortions performed during that time, the overall death rate was 0.7 per 100,000 procedures. The death rate for early-abortion procedures — those that took place within the first eight weeks of the pregnancy — was less: 0.3 per 100,000.
These are the correct abortion death rates:
- Overall death rate per 100,000 abortions: 100,000 (babies) + 0.7 (dead ex-mothers)
- Death rate per 100,000 early-abortions: 100,000 (babies) + 0.3 (dead ex-mothers)
Regarding the maternal mortality ratio and pregnancy being “dangerous”…
How dangerous are we talking about?
They say 11.9 deaths per 100,000 successful pregnancies.
The number of motor vehicle fatalities per 100,000 people in 2017 was 11.4 for the US, so… being pregnant is pretty much like driving.
Should we abort cars too?
Alabama’s new law claims that it does not prohibit abortion if there is a “reasonable medical judgment” that the pregnancy poses a “serious health risk” to the woman. An abortion may be performed if a “reasonable medical judgment” “necessitates” that a pregnancy be terminated to “avert her death or to avert serious risk of substantial physical impairment of a major bodily function.” The definition of a “major bodily function” is not given, nor is it distinguished from a minor bodily function.
But pregnancy itself poses a “serious health risk” — including the risk of dying and losing all bodily functions. A woman’s life and health are at risk from the moment that a pregnancy exists in her body, whether she wants to be pregnant or not.
The entire argument presented by the New York Times is “doing stuff is more risky than not doing stuff lol.”
Of course pregnancy poses a risk. Just like getting out of your house poses a risk. Staying inside of your house also poses a risk.
Can you name anything that doesn’t pose a risk?
Civilization, medicine, technology and science reduce the inherent risks of things. Right now women have the lowest risk ever of dying from pregnancy-related problems, but they’re getting told that they should abort to stay safe because pregnancy can rupture their uterus or whatever.
“Don’t breed! It is dangerous!”
These Jews really don’t want white people to have babies.
Furthermore, they appear to enjoy killing them.
