Chilean experience undercuts claim that legal abortion saves mothers' lives
CWN - February 12, 2010
A Chilean researcher has found heavy evidence that the country's efforts to promote healthy pregnancies have contributed to a significant drop in maternal mortality. The findings of Dr. Elard Koch contradict claims that the legalization of abortion is responsible for improvements in maternal-death statistics. In fact the Chilean statistics improved after the country tightened its abortion laws, while in other Latin American countries where unrestricted legal abortion is available, maternal deaths remain unacceptably high.
