Your title is correct (“Women’s Health at Stake in 2014”) but you have no idea what it means. Abortion
is NOT good for women. The adverse physical and emotional effects are well documented – even if they
are usually denied exposure by the politically correct media. Rather than taking away a problem,
abortion makes you the mother of a dead baby and when that fact hits home, the regret, depression
and anger begin … and may never end. Doctors who profit by abortion have a conflict of interest in
commenting on the issue and the requirement for an ultrasound is opposed by ideologues because they
know that when a woman sees that her fetus indeed looks and moves like a baby, she will often choose
AGAINST abortion – a choice that is NOT tolerated by the “pro-choice” lobby. And it is not just women
who are affected, the men, including the ones who may have pushed for the abortion, also experience
regret and a sense of loss of manhood, having failed to protect their own offspring. See
