More 'research' coming from Guttmacher

A colleague alerted me to a fundraising letter from the Guttmacher Institute in which they state that they are coming out with a new report later this year: Abortion Worldwide: A Decade of Uneven Progress. The report will, "highlight the progress that some countries, like Bangladesh and South Africa, have made in reducing maternal mortality by expanding access to safe abortion care." Evidently they are not familiar with the latest facts that maternal deaths went up 20% in South Africa between 2005 -2007.

Ah well, more spin and misinformation to look forward to from our friends later this year!
