Abortion isn't a health issue; < 2% of abortions involve the mother's health

Here's why women have abortions in Florida:
Doing the math we find that:

0.3%   are due to a threat to the life of the mother
0.01% are due to incest
0.14% are due to rape
1.4%   are due to a non-life threatening health issue for the mother

That means that 98+% of abortions are for reasons other than the mothers health, rape, or incest.

Abortion in America isn't about 12 year old girls who have been raped.  It's about young women who have casual sex and who don't want a baby.  Given that only around 50% of women who have abortions bothered to use contraception it's clear that abortion is, for many women, just another form of contraception.

Most importantly of the nearly 1,000,000 babies aborted each year in America 981,500 are killed because their mother doesn't want them not because the mother's health is an issue or because she's been raped.

The vast majority of Americans who support abortion being legal don't support abortion as a means of birth control.

It's time to end the lies by organizations that profit from abortions, like Planned Parenthood, that abortion is a woman's health care issue.
