Late-term abortions touted at major women’s health conference

Catholic World News - May 31, 2013

Late-term abortion was defended by speakers at Women Deliver, the self-described “largest meeting of the decade to focus on the health and well-being of girls and women.”

The conference, which took place in Malaysia from May 28 to 30, had numerous government, corporate, and nonprofit sponsors, including the International Planned Parenthood Federation and the United States Agency for International Development.

“Abortion can never be late,” said Nigerian gynecologist Talemoh Dah, who warned that the cause of abortion could be harmed if pro-life citizens photographed a fetus who survived an abortion.

“Abortion providers do not kill children,” added LeRoy Carhart, an American abortionist known for his partial-birth abortions.

Asked, “Who defends women who have been abused by abortion providers?”, Carhart responded, “I don’t think there’s an answer deserved.”

    Why are we funding the United States Agency for International Development to promote abortion with our tax dollars? This is one very visible sign of the corruption in U.S. society and the evil that we are exporting to the rest of the world. We are truly deserving of the name "The Great Satan" that has been given to us by some countries!
