Report into abortion rates is false says SPUC

Report into abortion rates is false says SPUC London, 14 October 2009 - A report into worldwide abortion rates is false, says the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC).
The Alan Guttmacher Institute, which has released the report, is an offshoot of the world's largest abortion promoter, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager, said: "The Guttmacher report is not independent academic research but propaganda from the pro-abortion lobby. The Guttmacher Institute was set up to promote abortion and contraception. The report's acknowledgments are a roll-call of the pro-abortion lobby. Guttmacher's figures are based on highly spurious guesstimates, which even the report itself is forced to admit. The pro-abortion lobby has a proven track record of exaggerating illegal abortions numbers. Abortion numbers in Britain today are many times higher than before the 1967 Abortion Act, despite ever-increasing access to birth control drugs and devices. We will be issuing a detailed response to the report."
