  • New laws in Alabama, Georgia and Missouri with sweeping abortion bans coupled with states like New York codifying Roe v. Wade has reignited the heated abortion debate. It is always fraught with rhetoric, as advocates on both sides of the issue spin facts to support their side. Will thousands of women die if Roe v. Wade is overturned? Is abortion more dangerous now than ever before? Do women get abortions after 20 weeks primarily because of fetal anomaly or to protect their health? Do the broad new laws essentially allow infanticide? As a viewer service, we untangle the spin. Read more: https://wapo.st/2MJdSAc.

    This is of course going to the FBI's website looking up the statistic for how many people are raped, X4 to get a more accurate number, assuming that every single one of them became pregnant, as well as assuming that every single one of them elected to get an abortion in ignoring the fact that several of them Decline an abortion.
