23 Nov 2009 Conflicts of Interest Shape Research: Abortion Studies Intrinsically Biased

deVeber Institute: Toronto, Canada (November 23, 2009) – The harm that is done to women’s health by abortion is being hidden in medical research, according to Elizabeth Ring-Cassidy, Senior Researcher specializing in the effects of abortion on women’s health with the deVeber Institute. She says that abortion research studies are intrinsically flawed. “Abortion studies which reveal negative effects of abortion are dubbed ‘methodologically flawed’, the results are buried, and the researchers don’t get funded.” In order to be funded or published, most abortion studies are required to start with the presumption that abortion is safe.

Music in Utero, By Chuck Colson: 6/29/2009In 1984, a video called The Silent Scream helped change the way people think about the unborn child. The footage of an actual abortion and the fetus’s reaction reminded us that abortion involves the death of a real person.
