The Truth By the Numbers by Lipizzaner-Kgirl The Truth By the Numbers by Lipizzaner-Kgirl

Available for free use, just don't claim it as your own, obviously. Please remember that this stamp is just a simple fact about the actions that lead to abortion. Everyone is free to have your own personal opinion.


At only 1% of all abortions, rape is not the reason abortion is legal.

Rape and incest (combined) contribute fewer than 1% of all abortions performed yearly. (The actual survey statistic is 0.3%, but as rape is sometimes unreported, it's safer to raise the number.) Only around 5% of all abortions are done to save the mother's life. That means that 99% of abortions are done after consensual sex, and 93% - 94% are done for convenience alone. Also, only around 51% - 52% of all women who obtain abortions report using birth control during the month leading up to pregnancy.




This figure is easily found in multiple places and forms of sources when researched. A few such sources are these (please note that I have used a number of types of sources):

The number of abortions after rape and incest is fewer than 1% of all abortions.





EDIT: I have been accused by the group Intersectional-911 that this message is hateful and discriminatory towards women and that it promotes rape and rape culture. I was even banned from that group because I submitted this and later blocked by its moderator when I tried to explain how this is simply a fact, nothing more. Just to clear any doubts, I want everyone to know that I hate rape in all its forms. I do not stand for rape. Rape has no excuse. A simple fact such as this is not meant to be demeaning or belittling towards anyone. I simply wish to dispel the commonly-held myth that abortion is legal because rape exists.

I know, right? Some people are just so bigoted against pro-lifers.

Stating facts now promotes violent crime and hate...what has this world come to? I swear, some people do more than just choose to remain ignorant, they want to demonize everything that could possibly inspire a differing view. Sorry that happened to you.

What the heck? Of course I'm demonizing rape. Do you support rape?

-.- I was agreeing with you. I meant that the people who were demonizing your stamp for possibly inspiring a differing view were idiots. Did you miss the "Sorry that happened to you" part?

Oh, sorry! I thought you were apologizing that I'd made that mistake or something. That's a common tactic on the internet, so I thought you were doing it. Sorry!

Yeah, I see your point now. A lot of people have assumed that I like rape just because I said that rape is a minute contributor to abortion.

Meh, that's alright. Mistakes happen and I get what you mean by that tactic.

People are really getting...I wanna say stupid, but that's the right word...these days. If they see something that doesn't blatantly validate their own opinion, they think it's automatically against them. I wonder what they would think of rape victims who go on to regret their abortions - heck, I saw one woman feel so guilty about it, she decided her abortion had been murder, an argument pro-choicers love to refute!

Anyway, no hard feelings. :)

Yeah. It seems that when a woman wants to keep her baby, it's a wonderful little person, but if she wants to abort it, it magically transforms into a worthless clump of cells. Logic? I see none.

Exactly. And if a woman miscarries, it's a tragedy JUST because the

mother wanted the baby. I mean, everyone realizes it's terribly rude to tell off an expectant parent for mourning, but by their logic, the parents have no reason to mourn at all and should just get over it. It's not consistent.

I don't know. I only support abortion in the case of rape/incest and medical emergencies, but like your stamp states, those are rare cases, especially if you don't live in a third world country. I hardly see how we're the ones "murdering" anybody.

Medical emergencies make up around 5% of abortions, last time I checked. It's higher than rape and incest combined, but you're right, it's still a very small percentage. Abortions due to the mother's life being in jeopardy make sense because if two lives are in danger and only one can be saved, we must always save that life.
