Capital Care of Toledo Update
Capital Care of Toledo is under new leadership and is now the Toledo Women’s Center. The new owner
is believed to be Dr. David Burkons, who has had multiple violations against him that Foundation for Life has reported on in the past.
After being closed for seven weeks, abortions will be resuming at the newly branded Toledo Women’s Center. Dr. Burkons now owns abortion mills in Toledo,Columbus, and one in the Cleveland, Ohio area.The Toledo mill will still be limited to medical (the two-step abortion pill) abortions only, but he will use both the Toledo and Columbus offices to refer customers to the Cleveland abortion mill for
Though we would have preferred that there would be no more abortions here, there are some encouraging takeaways. If it had been open, nearly 200 babies would have been aborted at this location over the past seven weeks. These women were given additional time to consider a decision they likely made in haste.

Even if Roe Is Overturned, It’s Not
Merely going back to the way things were before Roe, with each state sovereign over whether and at what point to restrict abortion, would just substitute many groups of human beings, albeit elected instead of appointed, making these decisions instead of one group of human beings.
Instead of fighting one battle it would mean having to fight 50 different battles.
We the People, not to mention philosophers, religious proponents, lawyers, doctors, mothers, have no right to guess about, legislate, or make these weighty life and death decisions. Governments at any level do not have that right. Individuals do not have that right.
Abortion is unconstitutional–because of what is being aborted.

Prenatal Tests Wrong 90% of the Time, But They’re
Used to Kill “Disabled” Babies in Abortions.
The New York Times is finally drawing attention to the frequent inaccuracies of non-invasive prenatal screening tests (NIPT), revealing that certain prenatal genetic tests are wrong up to 93% of the time. This has major implications, given the fact that families have frequently reported experiencing pressure to abort after receiving a prenatal diagnosis for a child.
As reported by the Times, about a third of pregnant women take these non invasive screening tests produced by companies including Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics. NIPTs look for small missing pieces of chromosomes called microdeletions, or for missing or extra copies of entire chromosomes. Yet
research has shown that so-called “positive” results (which only means an increased risk that the child has the condition) can be wrong more than 90% of the time.
Regardless of NIPT’s stunning inaccuracy, brochures market the tests as “reliable” and “highly accurate.” The companies tell parents that the tests will give them “peace of mind” — but for many parents, the tests have caused turmoil.
Does this mean that parents should skip prenatal testing altogether? Not necessarily. But it does mean having more open conversations with doctors and doing research into any conditions for which doctors might consider a baby to be at high risk.
No child deserves to die for having a health condition — even if that condition is deemed life-limiting or “terminal.” Parents aren’t expected to kill their born children when receiving a life-altering diagnosis, so why are they expected to kill their preborn children?

Abortion and Population Control are
Destroying America as
Underpopulation Becomes Massive
In a press release published last week, the Census Bureau announced that this was the lowest annual rate of population growth “since the nation’s founding.”
The fact that this nation’s population had an annual growth rate of nearly zero in the Census Bureau’s latest estimate should make liberal environmentalists happy. Demographically, America now seems headed in the direction they would like to see it take.
It should be noted that the decline in U.S. population growth in recent years has not been uniform across the country and even this past year’s decline is not solely attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic. Regionally, the population decreased 0.6% in the Northeast and 0.1% in the Midwest. In the South, it increased by 0.6%.
Back in 1973, John P. Holdren, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley, wrote an essay in which he argued that America was already overpopulated. He later became the director of former President Barack Obama’s White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. That same year, Holdren joined with Anne and Paul Ehrlich in writing “Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.” They wrote “Political pressure must be applied immediately to induce the United States government to assume its responsibility to halt the growth of the American population”.
Human beings are not a liability for this planet that God gave us. They are the reason it exists. And when they are allowed to live in freedom, they make life better, not worse, for the generations that follow them.

Abortion Was the Leading Cause of
Death Worldwide in 2021, Killing 42.6
A heartbreaking reminder about the prevalence of abortion, statistics compiled by Worldometers indicate that there were over 42.6 million abortions world-wide in 2021.
When contrasting the abortion numbers to other causes of death, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, traffic accidents and suicide, abortions far outnumbered every other cause. By contrast, 8.7 million people died from cancer in 2021, 5 million from smoking, 13 million from disease, and 1.7 million died of HIV/AIDS. Deaths by malaria and alcohol are also recorded. Worldometers indicates that approximately 3.5 million people died from COVID worldwide in 2021. There is considerable question as to whether those figures are accurate, as the CDC and state figures in the United States indicate a sizable percentage of deaths from COVID aren’t actually directly resulted from the virus itself, but are of people who had the virus at the time they died from some other cause.
In America, just under 1 million babies are aborted every year. Though abortion rates have been dropping in the past decade, abortion remains the leading cause of death in the United States as well.
An estimated 63 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions in the U.S. since Roe v. Wade in 1973.
In January, pro-life advocates will gather for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. to remember the anniversary of that infamous decision and call for restored protections for the unborn.
