must teach teens abortion risk factor for pre-term birth
Just spotted this on the local news

Quote:RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A bill requiring North Carolina educators to teach that abortions put women at risk of later premature births has been approved by the House.
Lawmakers approved the bill Thursday mostly along party lines. The measure requires educators to teach students in grades seven and higher about a number of risk factors associated with later premature births, including abortion, inadequate prenatal care and smoking.

Republicans agreed to a Democratic amendment calling abortion and other dangers "risks" rather than "causes." The two parties dispute the scientific basis for including abortion as a cause of later preterm birth, which can lead to development complications and death. Democrats call the bill an attempt to inject political ideology into school curriculum.

The bill already passed the Senate, which will have to approve the House's changes.

Really? I work in a NICU and have never heard such a thing. Do they cite any scientific literature?

nothing legit of course-- this is North Carolina after all.

Quote:Republican lawmakers base their support of the bill on a study from the state's Child Fatality Task Force, which found more than 120 reports linking abortion to preterm birth. The group recommended teaching that abortion puts women at risk of later premature births, though some members noted that many health organizations don't recognize any link between the two and premature birth is often better explained as a phenomenon of poverty and other factors.
Democrats have made similar arguments, noting the lack of support for the conclusion among groups such as the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They also said the word "cause" was medically inaccurate and the bill is an attempt to inject a political agenda into classrooms.
Rep. Rick Glazier, D-Cumberland, said few other states have taken this step, and neither teachers nor children are equipped to handle the issue.
"It may be fair if there was a consensus on the medical science, but there's not," he said. "It may be fair if this was at least age-appropriate information, but it's not."
Rep. Paul Stam, R-Wake, said middle-school students already have the opportunity to learn about sexually transmitted diseases and contraception. Glazier noted that students can opt out of that section of instruction, but the premature birth program would apply to all students.
Republicans tabled an amendment from Rep. Marvin Lucas, D-Cumberland, that would have gutted the bill. The amendment would have required schools only to "make available sample educational materials relating to the avoidance of preterm birth."

No, they don't cite any verifiable studies. There are some floating around but have all been refuted.

And...
Quote:Paige Johnson, vice president of external affairs for Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina, told RH Reality Check last week, “Abortion does not cause preterm birth, and in fact, not a single national medical organization recognizes a causal link between abortion and preterm birth.”

Oh North Carolina and Texas... the two states that both make me giggle and incite absolute rage for their stupidity.

Bitches be crazy.

RE: must teach teens abortion risk factor for pre-term birth
Those of us who are pro abortion should be careful about one thing. We should not deny that abortion has psychological and potentially physical risks for those who chose it. I say this without knowledge if the procedure could lead to potential future risk of premature birth.

I did once run into a former girlfriend who told me she was infertile because of her second abortion, too many years ago to remember exactly the circumstances but that was her claim. Any invasive medical procedure has risks. We who are pro abortion must concede this. We must also concede that abortion has potential long term psychological risks.

As I said above I do not know if risk of future premature birth is a legitimate risk of abortion. I will say that those who are pro abortion must admit that there are potential risks. Just as there are multiple risks of birthing and being a parent.

There is no correlation between abortion and latter problems. The emotional impact is real but is not what this bill is about.

So does childbirth...especially if the mom doesn't want the little bastard in the first place.

This bill is all about the emotional impact. To increase it. Drinking Beverage
