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.

In 2008, in the USA alone, there was 1.2 million abortions done, and it has stayed consistent since then. If 1% of the abortions were done because of rape or incest, then 12,000 were because of those reasons.

If abortion was outlawed because only 1% of them were from rape or incest, then that is 12,000 rape or incest babies being born each year.

funny thing freest country in the world is anti abortion unless it is life threatening for the mother. therefore the right to an abortion does not equal freedom.

when you say the freest country in the world, do you mean USA?
From what I know the freest country in the world is New Zealand. USA is the fourth, I think.

(I don't want to argue, but when you say thing like "the freest country in the world" it is sometimes not clear what country you mean because so many people think that's USA.)

Very true. People are just addicted to sex, and seeing as pregnancy is a very common (and natural) result of sex, they want to get rid of it. Self-control is the only humane solution. Nothing dies if you don't have sex but something will die if you have an abortion.

I feel unconformable when people say a fetus is not a person. My niece was almost aborted but my sis was talked into giving her for adoption. Does this mean she was not a person to those who say fetus is not a person?

What's really hypocritical is how people say that a fetus is not a person unless the mother wants to keep it, and then it magically becomes a beloved, precious little child, whereas seconds ago it was a worthless clump of cells. And the idea that it's okay to kill a fetus as long as it can't feel pain? Sorry, but what about full-grown adults who can't feel pain? Yes, there are conditions that cause that. Is it all right to kill them?

People are just obsessed with sex, and they're willing to talk themselves into ridiculous notions to get laid.

I feel like people who are sex hungry just use pro-choice as an excuse to have sex without consistences, rather than what they claim it is for

Pretty much, yeah. Other than abortion to protect the mother's life (which I support; when two lives are in danger and only one can be saved, we must always save that life), I have yet to hear a single argument that doesn't boil down to "I want sex without responsibility." Maybe I've just only conversed with sex-addicted people, but that's been  my experience.
