Were abortions safer before they were legal?

By Meredith Raney
Published April 1, 2000

While everyone knows that abortions are never safe for unborn babies, we have been led to believe that legalization made abortions safer for the mothers.

That may not be true and here’s why.

Let’s define a “good” abortionist as one whose maternal patients never end up in the emergency room with complications and a “bad” abortionist as one whose maternal patients do often suffer complications requiring hospital care.

Before abortions were legal, a mother with a botched abortion who showed up in an emergency room triggered a criminal investigation that would often lead to that “bad” abortionist being prosecuted and put out of business. Only “good” abortionists stayed in business because they weren’t discovered because their patients didn’t end up in emergency rooms. Thus the whole business was self- regulating in that “bad” abortionists were weeded out, while “good” abortionists remained.

Today our government is covering up for “bad” abortionists who are allowed to stay in business even after they have butchered many mothers.

On March 8 the ABC News program 20/20 had a segment about the complications of abortion. The segment was inspired by the fact that “four patients have died in the last five years in abortion clinics operated by the same doctor.” How was that abortionist allowed to continue practicing after the first, second, and third maternal deaths?

An example from right here in Florida explains how it happens. A letter from a Senior Attorney at the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) that says “Perforation of the uterus is a known and common complication of an abortion” and that because the abortionist acted in a timely manner and sent her to the emergency room, there was no malpractice. This letter was the final resolution of a complaint filed by a mother who had her uterus perforated by an abortionist in Melbourne.

When abortion was illegal, that abortionist would have been in jail and not able to damage other mothers. Instead, now that abortionist is free to continue his butchery every week with a Senior Attorney at AHCA making excuses for him. In one recent 17 month period Christians For Life documented 5 mothers being taken directly to the emergency room from the local abortion clinic.

So much for “safe,” legal abortions.
