Abortion And Autism

Quick Question: What is Autism?

Quick Answer: Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior.

Quick Question: What’s the financial cost of someone with Autism?

Quick Answer: In a 2007 article Harvard University, Professor of Society, Human Development, and Health, Michael Ganz estimated the total lifetime cost (medical + non-medical + lost income) for those with autism at $3.2 million.

Quick Question: What is the current incidence of Autism in the U.S.?

Quick Answer: 1 in 110 newborns according to the C.D.C. (i.e., there are 39,000 new Autism cases in U.S. newborns yearly).

Quick Question: Are there any risk ‘vectors’ via which a prior induced abortion (IA) elevates Autism risk?

Quick Answer: Yes. Five (5) mechanisms support the Abortion-Autism-Axis.1 Here they are:

  1. Increased Parental Age At Delivery Of Newborn Baby
  2. Increased Odds Of An Extremely Preterm Birth (<28 Weeks' Gestation)
  3. Increased Maternal Smoking Odds
  4. Increased Parental Psychiatric Disorders Odds
  5. Increased Maternal Alcoholism Odds

The Abortion-Autism-Axis

There is no greater medical interest on the Internet and among the public than Autism. No systematic reviews have ever cleared suction abortion of Autism risk. It is now settled science that prior induced abortion (IA) boost the risk of premature birth.

Brothers, we really need to talk.
