Dr. Mandy Cohen, the new director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recently shared her thoughts on abortion in the United States during an interview with TIME. When asked about a recent court ruling upholding safety protections on mifepristone, the first drug of the abortion pill regimen, Cohen expressed disappointment and emphasized her commitment to ensuring women have access to healthcare and medical treatment.
However, abortion is not a form of healthcare or a tool to control or prevent disease. Abortion is the intentional and direct killing of innocent human beings prior to birth. It does not treat any health condition or protect anyone’s health. While there may be cases where a pregnancy needs to be ended to save a woman’s life or health, the focus should be on delivering the baby, not killing it.
Studies have shown that abortions can have negative mental health outcomes for women, including feelings of guilt, depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. The physical dangers of abortion, particularly the abortion pill, should also be considered. The abortion pill has been found to be four times more dangerous than a surgical abortion in the first trimester, and ER visits related to abortion have increased significantly.
Abortion is not healthcare; it is the deliberate ending of a preborn child’s life. It is important to have accurate information and prioritize the well-being and dignity of both the mother and the child in these discussions. It is clear that the higher-ups in the healthcare and medical industries have fully capitulated to an agenda of profit with the cost being human lives.
