Which is safer, the bunny or the blender?

Via Jill Stanek, a fabulous ad from the American Life League:

Waiting for the liberal angst parade (and the PETA dupes) in 3, 2, 1…

And via Hot Air headlines this morning, another reminder why socialized medicine isn’t in the best interests of patients.  If state docs now tell patients that abortion is “safer” than a term pregnancy, what’s the benefit?  Lower costs for the state. It’s not safer, but it’s cheaper to kill a child before incurring prenatal medical costs, delivery costs, myriad vaccinations, those dreadful monthly checkups, etc.

From the Telegraph:

The guidance also says that women who are deciding whether to have an abortion must be told that most do not suffer any psychological harm. Until now, their advice has been that while rates of psychiatric illness and self-harm in women are higher among those who had an abortion, there was no evidence that termination itself was likely to trigger psychological problems.

Oh, really?

Speaking in a personal capacity, Prof Patricia Casey, a consultant psychiatrist and fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, said: “The message this sends out is very worrying. There are more than 30 studies showing an association between psychological trauma and abortion.”

No evidence at all, though I’m sure it’s cheaper for the state to assume the risk of future psychiatric care than the financial burden of bringing a new life into the world.

Exit question: what happens to the state when it exterminates its future tax base and the money all runs dry?

  1. Oh wow is that powerful. I held my breath when the bunny was put in. You know, there will be more people who are sympathetic to the bunny than to the unborn.

    • Manny, my husband had the same reaction – blurted out, “They aren’t going to actually do it, are they?” Big tough guy. (It was a cute bunny). But I think you are spot on – more people will flinch with the bunny image than imaging that baby.

  2. It’s unreal.
    In addition to mental health issues, frequent abortions may lead to infertility (although, I think, there is some evidence disputing it), and women who had children before 30 are less likely to get breast and ovarian cancer later in life.

  3. I saw this and was speechless – why on earth adopt that position – and voila – you nailed it – cost cutting comes with baby cutting. These are dark, dark days indeed.
