Claim of rise in illegal abortions globally is dubious, says SPUC

1 February 2012

A claim published in the Lancet medical journal that so-called 'unsafe' - usually illegal - abortions worldwide have risen by 5% is "dubious", says SPUC.

The claim was made in a report by researchers from the Guttmacher Institute and the World Health Organsation (WHO).

John Smeaton, SPUC director, commented: "The WHO routinely makes unsubstantiated claims about so-called 'unsafe' or illegal abortion. WHO is one of the world’s major pro-abortion bodies. The Guttmacher Institute is the research arm of the worldwide pro-abortion lobby.

"The report is pro-abortion propaganda, and should be dismissed as such." [SPUC, 19 January]
