WHO Pushes Unsafe Abortions on Poor Women

Who is safe with WHO?  No one.  WHO is supposedly an organization that promotes global health and they come up with a manual on “safe” abortions?  No one, including any baby, is safe from an abortion.  That is the truth.  Stop the lies.  



A new manual by the World Health Organization (WHO) on how to do abortions is facing criticism for advocating substandard medical care and a ban on all limits to abortion.  Aimed particularly at poor women in developing countries, the manual downplays medical oversight and recommends disposing of the “waste,” including babies’ remains, in sewers or latrines.

A review of the WHO’s “Safe Abortion: Technical and Policy Guidance for Health Systems” just published by Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) has found the agency “recommending abortion practices for women in poor countries that have been rejected by medical experts in the developed world.”

The review, which was peer reviewed by experts in medicine and international law, concludes the WHO’s guidance is designed to make abortion more widespread. The WHO discourages customary practices such as exams to detect ectopic pregnancies or complications.

The WHO’s report pays a lot of attention on the drug misoprostol, the anti-ulcer medication has become the primary method of choice for aggressive abortion advocates. Its legitimate uses, such as treating post-partum hemorrhage, makes the drug more readily acceptable and more easily available. The WHO acknowledges that its guidance on using misoprostol for pregnancies beyond 24 weeks lacks clinical studies to back up its recommendation.

C-FAM’s Director of Research Dr. Susan Yoshihara is the primary author of the review titled “Eleven Problems with the 2012 WHO Technical Guidance on Abortion.”

In addition to lax medical standards, the WHO also urges worldwide liberalization of abortion laws, claiming it is part of a “human rights approach” despite international agreements and national laws that limit abortion and recognize the right to life.
