Abortion kansas city

Newman and his colleague, Cheryl Sullenger, have recently released a new book, Abortion Free, that describes their efforts in Kansas to end late-term abortions and details step by step, how pro-life activists can employ similar strategies to make their communities abortion free. Several notable trends emerge from the 2014 abortion data, specially when taken in context with abortion numbers over past 12 years or more.
In 2014, the number of abortions in Kansas decreased by three percent over the previous year. Pro-life efforts in Kansas to document and expose abortion abuses then pass laws to hold abortionist accountable have been tremendously successful. When Operation Rescue first began plans to relocate to Wichita, there were seven abortion facilities in Kansas. For example, abortions dropped 4% after Operation Rescue bought and closed Central Women’s Services in Wichita and transformed the building into its national headquarters. Although abortions did increase the year after Krishna Rajanna’s appallingly filthy Affordable Medicine Clinic abortion facility in Kansas City closed in 2005, there appears to be other factors involved in the increase, including an adverse political climate that aggressively marketed abortions and vilified pro-life efforts. Trend 3: Surgical abortion numbers are dropping while medication abortions are on the rise. Across the nation, surgical abortions have been decreasing while medication abortions have been increasing in usage. In fact, first trimester abortions in Kansas declined 3 percent in 2014 and have dropped 35 percent since 2002.
One of the contributing factors in the dramatic increase in Kansas of medication abortions over the past two years that South Wind has been open, has been the fact that the primary abortionist at South Wind Women’s Center, Cheryl Chastine, is a very inexperienced abortionist who has been more comfortable dispensing medication abortions than conducting the surgical procedures.

It is likely that medication abortions will surpass surgical abortions when the 2015 numbers come out next spring. Trend 4: The late-term barbaric Induction Abortion method has disappeared from Kansas, ending abortions 22 weeks and over. When Operation Rescue first relocated to Kansas in 2002, there were 528 late-term abortions using George Tiller’s Induction Abortion method.
With the closure of Tiller’s Women’s Health Care Services in 2009 and the passage of a 20-week abortion ban in Kansas, Induction Abortions have been eradicated from Kansas with none having been reported in this state since 2011 when two Induction Abortions were the last to be recorded. Trend 5: The percentage of Kansas abortions involving Dilation and Evacuation, also known as Dismemberment abortions, has held relatively steady in Kansas over the past 12 years. This year, Kansas made headlines by passing the first-in-the-nation Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, which criminalized what are known as Dilation and Extraction (D&E) abortions.
D&E abortions are grisly 2-3 day procedures that involve dismembering the pre-born baby with forceps and other instruments in order to remove him or her from the womb. Statistics show that there has been relatively little change in the percentage of D&E abortions done in Kansas over the past dozen years with the procedure fluctuating only a few tenths of a percent per year. However, in 2014, D&E abortions increased about four percent over 2013 numbers to 637 reported procedures.
Thankfully, with this year’s enactment of the ban on dismemberment abortions, we will happily see that number soon drop to zero, barring any legal challenge to the new law. At one time, women from every state came to Kansas for very late-term abortions that were unavailable elsewhere.

With the 2014 closing of Aid for Women in Kansas City, fewer women are crossing state lines for abortions. Decreasing the number of women crossing state lines to get abortions is yet another example of the benefits of closing abortion clinics.
Trend 7: When counties are abortion free, women living in those counties receive fewer abortions. This trend shows that, despite the rhetoric from the abortion cartel, women simply do not need abortions. Abortion numbers took a dramatic drop in 2009 when George Tiller’s Women’s Health Care Services was open for only five months before closing permanently on June 1.
In 2008, the last full year Tiller’s clinic was open, 1146 Sedgwick County residents obtained abortions.
But if women truly needed abortions, the number of Sedgwick County women seeking the procedure would have remained stable when the last abortion facility closed. This debunks the notion that when abortion clinics close, women will just travel elsewhere to get them. Since South Wind Women’s Center opened in 2013 and began marketing abortions to women, the number of abortions among Sedgwick County women has risen 32 percent over the past two years for which numbers are available, even while abortions numbers continued to drop in other Kansas Counties.
