Major British newspaper admits getting it wrong on “back-alley abortions” in Africa

By Jonathon Van Maren

Major abortion corporations such as Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes have been pushing to legalize abortion in developing countries for years, a fact exposed in Nigerian pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha’s brilliant book Target Africa: Neo-Colonialism in the 21st Century.

Backed by billionaires such Bill Gates and George Soros, as well as powerful organizations such as the United Nations, the European Union, the Biden administration, and the World Health Organization, poor nations in Africa, Latin America, and South America are under almost constant pressure to remove their protections for pre-born children and allow the bloody carpetbaggers of Big Abortion across their borders.

The playbook is almost always the same. Rich nations dangle foreign aid in front of poorer nations, demanding that they conform to post-Christian values or face being cut off. The Western media works to paint these countries not as family-oriented nations that love and value children, but as bitter hellscapes where untold millions of women die in back alleys. They never claim that they are seeking to legalize abortion for their own profit, or because their values demand it — they always claim it is for the good of the people they are demanding accept it. No lie is too large not to find its way into print.

This makes a recent correction by the British publication The Telegraph rather shocking — not because it got abortion numbers wrong, but because it bothered to admit it. Here is their admission, in full:

On 19th February 2021 we published an article which reported that “Roughly 12,000 women die from back street abortions each year in Malawi …”

The article referenced data produced in a joint report between the Centre for Reproductive Health at the University of Malawi College of Medicine and the U.S. based Guttmacher Institute.

That report presented research which estimated that more than 141,000 back street and unsafe abortions occur annually in Malawi. Following on from this research, the Ministry of Health and the Parliamentary Committee on Health held a press conference in which the report’s finding were relied on and in which they stated that 12,000 women die from back street abortions annually.

    Thank you, once again, Jonathon Van Maren, for posting an informative piece on Facebook, which I otherwise wouldn’t know about. Seems to me the “heart of darkness” resides in the West, where monied interests push hard to “educate” Africans on the “benefits of abortion on demand. Of course, they must make up stories about the so-called numerous back-alley abortions and the resulting deaths to win support for their deadly agenda.
