Myth: Abortion isn’t safe
Wrong! As many pointed out during the tweetstorm, abortion is actually very safe; in fact, it’s a safer procedure than getting a colonoscopy, and it’s safer than giving birth. Access to legal and safe abortions can help those who need them in both the short and long term.
MYTH: Abortion is dangerous.
FACT: Abortion is incredibly safe—safer than a colonoscopy. The risk of death associated with childbirth is 14 times higher than the risk associated with abortion. #BustAbortionMyths
