Get the facts: Thousands of women weren’t dying from abortion before Roe v. Wade
False Claim #1: 5,000-10,000 women died annual from illegal abortion before Roe.
FACT: These statistics were made up. The real number was a mere fraction of this.
Abortionist Bernard Nathanson admitted that he and others fabricated large numbers of deaths from illegal terminations prior to Roe. Nathanson and Larry Lader, a Margaret Sanger biographer, worked to decriminalize abortion laws. Together, they and others founded NARAL (then known as the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws).
