Boxer plays chicken little with false abortion stats

From LifeNews:

A leading abortion advocate in the Senate has shocked political observers with a claim that thousands of women will die each year in the United States if the Supreme Court overturns the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

In an interview with the Associated Press, California Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat, responded to a question about whether Senate Democrats will use a filibuster to block President Bush's expected Supreme Court nominee and what kind of impact on abortion a pro-life judicial pick would have.

"It means a minimum of 5,000 women a year will die. So all options are on the table," she said....

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, co-founder of the National Abortion Rights Action League, admits his group lied about the number of women who died from illegal abortions when testifying before the Supreme Court in 1972.

"We spoke of 5,000 - 10,000 deaths a year," he said. "I confess that I knew the figures were totally false [but] it was a useful figure, widely accepted, so why go out of our way to correct it with honest statistics?"

Official governmental numbers don't substantiate Boxer's figures.

Boxer seems to fit snuggly into Rush Limbaugh's definition of FemiNazi that he included in his book, The Way Things Ought To Be:

“...a woman to whom the most important thing in life is seeing to it that as many abortions as possible are performed”
