Advantages of Abortion: Part 3

Over at Birth Pangs where deBeauxOs and fern hill began their blogging careers, by far, the most common search string bringing visitors to the site was 'advantages of abortion'. They then found this little post hoc propter hoc piece and this more serious take on the matter.

Well, today there is news of another advantage to abortion:

Women who have had two or more induced abortions have a reduced risk of pre-eclampsia, researchers in Norway said.

Affecting at least 5 percent to 8 percent of all pregnancies, pre-eclampsia is a rapidly progressive condition characterized by high blood pressure, the presence of protein in the urine, swelling, sudden weight gain and headaches, although some women report few symptoms. Women who have previously given birth to a child have lower risk of pre-eclampsia, the researchers said.

The study, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, shows that women who have had two or more induced abortions reduced their risk for pre-eclampsia by 60 percent.
Wow. Sciency stuff again. While only fetus fetishists claim that there are links between abortion and breast cancer, abortion and mental illness, abortion and going str8t to hell, here again is Evidence that abortion is a medical procedure with little down-side and some proven up-side.

Hiya, beijing york.

Is it pink enough for you? ;)

deBeauxOs said...

More pink? That is do-able.

Very nice. You've got mail.

I like the green and pink together. The green is a minty hospital shade that seems wholly appropriate :-)

I think there's enough pink. The only thing I would suggest trying is replacing the yellow with that dark red. I like the pink against red -- good womyn colours.

I'm impressed. You two did an excellent stealth job on setting this up. I hear there are a couple of LIB contenders who still can't get their sh*t together to set up a web site.
