Ohio Vigorously Defends Down Syndrome Antidiscrimination Law

Ohio HB 214 prohibits abortion where the abortionist knows that the mother is seeking the abortion, in whole or in part, because the baby was diagnosed with Down Syndrome, because a test result indicated Down Syndrome in the baby, or because of any other reason to believe the baby has Down Syndrome.

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.

Survival of Extremely Premature Infants Possible, Improving

In a new video released by commentator William Saletan at Slate magazine, the author critiques videos released by the activist group Live Action regarding clinics that perform late-term abortions.  In those videos, Live Action shows interactions between women whose pregnancies are in the range of 23 completed weeks of gestation.  Saletan critiques the editing of the video to omit points he argues show the clinics in a more favorable light, then states, “Here’s the big thing… even if you didn’t administer an injection, that kills the fetus inside the womb, which nearly all of these clinics do, the mere expulsion of the fetus, even at 21, 22, or 23, weeks is, itself, fatal.  That fetus is not prepared to survive the womb.”

Induced Abortion and Risk of Subsequent Preterm Birth

Preterm birth is one of the most significant challenges facing the field of obstetrics and remains a considerable public health issue. For years, concerns have been raised about a potential association between frequently performed induced abortion procedures and preterm delivery in subsequent pregnancies.  Such concerns have been largely ignored in mainstream U.S. medical literature and are unknown to wider public opinion.  However, a growing body of worldwide evidence suggests that the association between preterm birth and history of induced abortion is indeed credible.
