Democrats are such drama queens. I mean, really. This isn't Indonesia. Sandra and "her women" aren't dying in emergency rooms. The woman needs a reality check. This isn't 1910 and she's not a suffragette.

actual quot " It would be an America in which you have a new vice president who co-sponsored a bill that would allow pregnant women to die preventable deaths in our emergency rooms."

well if you disallow abortions for the life/ health of the mother what do think will happen? women will die.

Women will die whether abortions are permitted or not. The question is whether more women will die because of abortion, or because they were unable to have an abortion?

According to the CDC, there have been over 50,000,000 abortions in the USA since 1973.

More than 95% (47,500,000) of abortions are elective, meaning that there is no threat to the mother or defect with the fetus. If, at least half of the babies electively aborted are female, then that means that at least 23,750,000 women were intentionally killed solely because their mothers were unwilling to give birth to them.

Maternal death is estimated to be about 12 per 100,000 in the USA. The total US population in 2012 is estimated to be 314,317,000. The birth rate is 15.68 per 1000 persons per year. If there are 4,928,491 births every year in the USA, that would equate to about 591 maternal deaths each year. If this number were constant (it is not, due to advancements in medical technology), that would mean in the last 39 years, there were 23,049 maternals deaths.

Women killed by elective abortion: 23,750,000
Women who died due to issues related to pregnancy: 23,049

In other words, "thanks" to elective abortion, 1000x more women have died, murdered because of their mother's selfishness, in the last 39 years.

Sandra Fluke, the woman who asked taxpayers to foot the bill for her birth control in February, just wrapped up her speech at the 2012 DNC. Her remarks were brief but typical, arguing a Romney presidency would set women back and leave women to die "preventable deaths in emergency rooms."

Fluke has become a center piece of the Obama campaign and is being used to represent women. She embraced a second term for President Obama saying, "In which our president stands with all women.”

But does President Obama really stand with "all women?" Fluke shot to fame after...
