British Medical Group: First Duty? Tell Women Abortion Is Safer than Childbirth

In the U.K. the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has drawn up new guidelines for health care workers dealing with pregnant women. And, acting oblivious to the studies demonstrating many long-term risks of abortion (including higher cancer rates and psychological trauma), the RCOG lists as its first recommendation of "what women need to know" that "Women should be advised that abortion is generally safer than continuing a pregnancy to term."

Remember now that they're talking about abortion, an action that is violent, harrowing and unnatural in the extreme. An action that has been considered shocking and immoral throughout the centuries of civilized culture.

But so distorted have both medical ethics and medical care become in Great Britain that the cultural standards, the scientific facts and the nurturing instincts of motherhood are now displaced as priorities by the RCOG. And in their place -- propaganda that promotes more abortion.

Should we be surprised then to learn that among the "health care professionals" who came up with these guidelines guessed it, abortion providers.

Golly. The RCOG has sold out to a very nasty bunch.
