Babies Will be Saved From Abortion as Huge Abortion Biz Closes Four Clinics

The abortion industry in Australia is struggling to stay in business as mothers and doctors reject the notion that killing unborn babies in abortions is somehow health care.

In June, Marie Stopes Australia announced that four of its abortion facilities will close at the end of July as a result of rising costs and an inability to find doctors and nurses willing to do abortions, the Australian outlet ABC News reports.

The abortion facilities are located in RockhamptonTownsville and Southport in Queensland and Newcastle in New South Wales. The facilities did about 500 abortions a year, according to the report.

Jamal Hakim, managing director of Marie Stopes Australia, blamed negative attitudes about abortion and medical workers’ unwillingness to participate for the closures.

“We have a number of vacancies always, so we fly-in nurses and doctors to continue services,” Hakim said.

Australia and many of its states and territories have passed pro-abortion laws in recent years. Many abortions also are taxpayer funded through the country’s Medicare program.

But Hakim argued that this is not enough. He wants the government to actively promote and expand access to abortions, not just make them legal.

“Decriminalisation means that this now is no longer a criminal issue, this is a health issue and governments do have a part to play, and some have done that better than others,” he told ABC.

What more specifically the abortion industry wants from the government is not clear. Some abortion activists are openly pushing to end conscience protections and force doctors and nurses to help kill unborn babies.

Marie Stopes International is based in England. Earlier this year, it changed its name to MSI Reproductive Choices to attempt to distance itself from its founder’s discriminatory eugenic beliefs.

Based in England, the abortion chain has 600 facilities in 37 countries where it continues its founder’s discriminatory mission by killing millions of unborn babies in abortions. Inspection reports suggest it has little regard for women’s health or safety either, and it has weathered scandal after scandal involving botched abortions and other safety violations.

Marie Stopes reported 4.8 million abortions and post-abortion care services in 2018 – almost double what it reported in 2012. Its reported income was £296.8 million ($361 million). Its CEO is one of the highest paid charity executives in the United Kingdom, according to Civil Society News. In 2018, the abortion group’s annual report showed a 100-percent salary bonus for the executive, doubling his salary to £434,500 ($528,000).

There have been numerous scandals surrounding the pro-abortion group in recent years. In 2016, British health inspectors discovered such alarming health problems inside its British facilities that the government temporarily forced Marie Stopes to stop doing some abortions.

Inspectors reportedly found 2,634 health violations in 2016. In one case, inspectors said they intervened in a situation where a woman with learning disabilities was being pushed into an abortion even though she appeared distressed and did not understand what was going on, The Telegraph reported at the time.

The government later allowed Marie Stopes to resume all abortions after it took corrective action.

But problems persisted. In 2017, a British Care Quality Commission report found the abortion chain botched nearly 400 abortions in a two-month period. It also found evidence that Marie Stopes may be pressuring women to have abortions by incentivizing staff with bonuses.

Marie Stopes also has been accused of doing hundreds of illegal, unsafe abortions in Africa. In 2017, parents and community leaders in Kitui, Kenya were outraged after learning that Marie Stopes workers allegedly came into their children’s school and implanted long-lasting contraceptive devices into girls as young as 14 without their parents’ knowledge or consent. And in 2018, the west African country of Niger ordered all Marie Stopes facilities to close for facilitating illegal abortions.
