10/1/12 — The World Health Organization (WHO) is devoting much staff time and resources to promoting the legalization of abortion around the world. In fact, it has just come out with a new “how-to” manual entitled Safe abortion: technical and policy guidance for health systems. The stated goal of the manual is to educate practitioners on “safe abortion” procedures and to advocate ways to “reduce unsafe abortion” around the world.
Before we go any further, please understand that “safe abortion” is a code word for “legal abortion,” while “reducing unsafe abortion” means “overturning laws that protect unborn life.” The abortion-minded do not hesitate to distort the English language to make their project sound beneficial to women and innocuous to the taxpaying public.
The WHO major partner in crime is the Working Group for the Prevention of Unsafe Abortion of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO). The chairman of the Working Group, Dr. Anibal Faúndes, collaborated with WHO in developing the new abortion manual, and is now assisting in its promotion.
