Has the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Stopped 11 000 Abortions?

As claimed by this article LifeNews.

I beg to differ.

I'm very happy the ban is in place.

But it's hard to believe that that many abortions were prevented.

I think the author has discounted the possibility that other methods of abortion were used to achieve the same goal.

Feticide by intracardiac injection is now routine, and killing a baby in this manner would circumvent the PBA ban.

Also, prostaglandin abortions are still possible. They just might take longer and cost more.

I'm not trying to burst people's bubbles. I'm only trying to inject some facts into the discussion.

However, the author was completely justified in saying that Planned Parenthood was bluffing when it said that PBA was absolutely necessary for women's health.
