Obama Administration Covering Up Abortion Statistics

Posted: Feb 03, 2011 4:12 PM
The Center for Disease Control press office has confirmed to Red State's Erik Erickson that the Obama Administration has stopped, for the first time in 40 years, the publishing of the CDC's annual Abortion Surveillance Report and that there are no plans to publish the report any time soon.

As Erickson points out in his piece, whatever side of the abortion debate you may be on, this is an issue of government transparency. President Obama has said on numerous occasions that he believes transparency in government in important, yet it seems the President only views government transparency as important when it is convenient for his administration.

From RedState:

In the wake of numerous damaging disclosures about unscrupulous practices by abortionists (from Kermit Gosnell to Planned Parenthood clinics across the country), the Obama Administration has apparently ordered that the only Federal government report on abortion statistics – again, a report that has run continuously for 40 years – be deep-sixed. The immediate question this raises is: what is the Obama administration trying to hide?
