WASHINGTON — Women are being "victimized" and in some cases killed as a result of abortion procedures, yet lack of accurate data recording is keeping Americans in the dark about the issue, a prominent obstetrician-gynecologist who has been in her field for over 40 years explained Thursday.
During a panel discussion at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference, Dr. Freda Bush, a clinical instructor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Mississippi Medical Center who is an American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists board member, questioned whether Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics are doing their part to explain the real and fatal health risks of abortion to young women who are looking for a way out of their crisis pregnancies.
In the discussion, which was focused on the aftermath of Center for Medical Progress' undercover Planned Parenthood aborted baby body parts videos, Bush called for the "full disclosure" on how Planned Parenthood clinics respond to protect women who experience serious complications as a result of abortion procedures. more >>
