The rate of abortions in the United States fell by 5%, the largest single-year decrease in a decade, researchers for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. The decline is outlined in the annual abortion surveillance data for the year 2009, the latest available. It was published on Wednesday in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.About 18% of all pregnancies in the United States end in abortion, the CDC noted. Factors from the availability of abortion providers, state laws, the general economy and access to health services including contraception, can all influence the abortion rate,
...please take note, it dealt with the year 2009, just a year after Bush had left office, I am more incline to think it was his fault for perhaps creating a cultural effect on the "industry of death"...
...to be fair, we need to wait to see what the rates in 2012 or 13 may look like in a few years...
The abortion industry is bigger than ever and is growing leaps and bounds. This info is very stale given that you now have a rabidly pro-abortion president.
It wouldn´t surprise me one bit to see one day,that women are being paid to have abortions,so some are having them on purpose.
All this crap is couched in women´s reproductive services.It´s going to get even worse as atheists are pushing harder and harder to get God out of people´s minds. They now have a website called something like kids without God which targets young people into giving up the myth of God.They even call God an imaginary friend.
Women control the morals of a society,that´s why the left targets them to break their morals down.It´s imploding the culture from the inside out.We just saw how women are putting their V´s above everything else in an election.Comparing voting for Obama as giving up your virginity shows how far this country has sunk.
This is the main reason Palin had to be destroyed. The idea of a strongly pro-life woman president is way more than the left could take.They don´t just see Palin as a female candidate but a crusader.
The abortion debate rarely addresses the real issues on either side because language and facts are distorted by both. In general, I find the pro choice side less honest. The statistics in the article make it clear that abortion is being used as birth control by irresponsible people. Whatever your views, that´s an appalling situation.
Washington- American Airlines kicked off its freshly minted status as the world´s largest carrier Thursday with an aggressive order for $3.9 billion worth of regional jets from Brazil´s Embraer and Canada´s Bombardier. Three days after completing its merger with US Airways, the new American said it had inked deals to buy 30 CJR900 NextGen aircraft from Bombardier, and 60 Embraer E175s. Bombardier said its deal was worth $1.42 billion, while Embraer put a $2.5 billion value on its order. American also has options to buy an additional 40 CJR900s and 90 E175s. American said the 76-seat regional jets ordered will
Her sexy wardrobe (and racy reputation) have earned her the nickname ‘Gucci Helle’ in her native Denmark. It’s the kind of profile you would normally associate with, say, a footballer’s wife, or a model, not a prime minister. But then Danish leader Helle Thorning-Schmidt, 46, who dragged Barack Obama and David Cameron into that embarrassing ‘selfie’, is not a typical head of state, not by British standards anyway. How many premiers, for example, when heckled at a public meeting about their wardrobe would have replied bluntly: ‘We can’t all look like s***.’ Or boarded a military plane to wartorn Libya
Boy, that didn´t take long, did it? The Washington Post announced Wednesday that MSNBC´s Rachel Maddow would be writing a column for the paper once a month, and on Thursday, there was her first piece. Any guesses on the topic? Bashing George. W. Bush, of course. What would you expect from this unapologetic liberal shill? Titled "How George W. Bush Failed The GOP" - clever, isn´t she? - the piece rips the former President for not leaving behind members of his administration that have subsequently amounted to anything in the political arena:In the eight years of the George W. Bush
Following news that Maroon 5 frontman and People-anointed Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine will be stumping for Healthcare.gov, National Review editor Jonah Goldberg figured there must be a couple of people who will be swooned into health care coverage by the scribe of “Moves Like Jagger.” “It might work at the margins,” Goldberg told Fox News. “I am sure there some truly unfortunate souls out there who think the lead singer from Maroon 5 is the guy to take health care advice from.” Goldberg said the bigger issue for the Obama administration was not getting young people to sign up
If there’s one off-the-cuff remark that will follow Chris Matthews for the rest of his career as a pundit, it has to be time time in 2008 when he said, in reference to a speech by then-candidate Barack Obama, “I felt this thrill going up my leg.” It’s the one line for which conservatives love to make fun of him most, and he knows it. During a Wednesday evening debate over divisions within the Republican Party, Matthews chose to voluntarily reference the infamous quote and defend the sentiment behind it. Republican strategist Steve Schmidt was denouncing the current state of
Obama is running from Obamacare to his zone of strength and core value: class warfare. Democrats are geniuses at playing on group identity. When I ask friends what principles lead them to vote Democrat, it is a hard question for them. After a baffled pause, I often hear this: "Republicans are the party of the rich." It is said as if that is all that needs to be said: not like me, exploiting people, bad for the country. Not my party. As the liberal Howard Dean says, many Republicans "have never made an honest living in their lives." Democrats have
Senate Republicans on Wednesday launched an around-the-clock talkathon over some of President Obama´s nominees in the wake of a new, Democratic-driven rules change last month that weakened the GOP´s ability to block nominations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., threatened to hold the Senate in session through the night to deal with 11 nominations, most of them non-controversial. Republicans retain the power to use up all procedural time, including post-cloture debate time on nominees. If Republicans refuse to give up their allotted debate time, the Senate could be in session continuously into Saturday -- or longer. "If we have to
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
