American Life League: As Teen Pregnancies Increase, So Does Chemical Abortion

Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from American Life League

    WASHINGTON, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- "We are in the midst of an
 unbelievable state of moral chaos," writes Cathy Brown, director of American
 Life League's youth outreach, in the current issue of Celebrate Life. "Many
 teens are aborting their children in the first days of life without even
 knowing that an abortion is occurring."
     Brown's analysis of the chemical abortion epidemic among teens comes amid
 Planned Parenthood's fierce and sustained efforts to mislead and lull the
 American public into believing that pregnancy and abortion rates among teens
 are falling.
     "We have an increase in teens becoming sexually active at earlier ages and
 an increase in contraceptive use among teens -- not exactly a formula for
 ensuring healthy adults a generation from now," Brown added.
     Brown said more than 50 percent of the teens using birth control are using
 chemical contraceptives which can in fact cause early abortion.  "Because
 chemical contraceptives can and do work to cause early chemical abortions,
 then the number of teens becoming pregnant may not have decreased at all."
     For Cathy Brown's complete article, with statistical references, as it
 appears in the March/April edition of Celebrate Life, please call

     American Life League is the nation's largest pro-life educational
 organization with more than 375,000 supporting families.
