I love it when a pro-abortion mantra is proven to be a blatant lie. It’s especially gratifying when the source of the lie dispels its own myth.
They share the same scare tactics so using the same vocabulary isn’t surprising. Hangers are raised and many tales of millions of deaths, pre-Roe, are told......
But wait, Planned Parenthood declared back in 1959 that (gasp): “Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure…90% of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians.” In fact, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s own Medical Director, Dr. Mary Calderone, clarified her remarks by saying these illegal abortions were “being done well by physicians.”
Planned Parenthood apparently forgot their own 1959 presentation to the American Public Health Association where Dr. Calderone also opined: “In 1957, there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind…Call them what you will abortionists or anything else [I’ll call them seedy millionaire butchers], they are still physicians. They must do a pretty good job if the death rate is as low as it is.” 1957 people. Nineteen…fifty…seven.
