Abortion and Preterm Birth: Educational Campaign Recognizes the Well-Documented Link

Prevent Preterm (PreventPreterm.org) was launched this June to educate the public on three known risk factors for preterm, or premature, births: tobacco use, lack of prenatal care, and prior abortion. Despite a large body of medical research showing that abortion increases the risk of a subsequent preterm birth, information on this link is not nearly as accessible to the general public as that of smoking and prenatal care. PreventPreterm.org fills this need by providing a user-friendly, comprehensive chart summarizing more than 100 peer-reviewed published studies that identify abortion as a risk factor for preterm birth.

U.S. Abortion Reporting: An Issue We Can Agree On

There is no federal law guiding an efficient, organized, and uniform method for states to report their annual abortion statistics. While the majority of states have their own abortion reporting requirements, these laws are diverse and unique to the states. Often these state laws vary, requiring the collection of a plethora of different facts on topics from women’s ages to abortion complications. Lack of uniformity in reporting laws has led to an absence of consistency. Often, abortion reporting is voluntary, removing the incentive for states to produce reports. Abortion advocacy groups, pro-life groups, doctors, policy-makers, and the general public would benefit from comprehensive, timely, and accessible statistics regarding an issue that greatly impacts women’s health.

Victory for Rhode Island Pro-Lifers: New Rule Requires Abortion-Excluding Healthcare Plans for 2016

Beginning in 2016, Rhode Island health insurance carriers who will offer plans either on or off the exchange will be required to provide an elective abortion-free plan at each metal level at which they will offer plans. Research from the Charlotte Lozier Institute and the Family Research Council in November 2014 showed that Rhode Island was one of four states that offered only plans covering elective abortion for the 2015 enrollment period.

Written Testimony of Chen Guangcheng: A Matter of Life and Death

To address the issue of violent birth control in China, let me start by listing birth control slogans from some of the following provinces: In Yunnan: All villagers will be sterilized once a single villager violates the birth quota. In Sichuan: Anyone avoiding sterilization must be put in custody; anyone avoiding sterilization must be punished by bulldozing their house; anyone avoiding abortion shall surrender their cattle and house.

North Carolina Eugenics Victims Still Seeking Justice due to Compensation Technicality

In March, a bill was introduced to broaden the qualifications of the eugenics compensation program and close the loophole that excluded Blackmon from receiving a portion of the $10 million set aside for victims. The number of people the extension might affect is difficult to estimate; however, by the June 2014 deadline to apply for compensation, there were 786 applications and only 220 were approved.
