    WE NEED TO DEMAND THAT MARCH OF DIMES TELL TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION BEING A MAJOR RISK

    In announcing a major fund-raising effort, March of Dimes claims a 27 percent rise in premature births "is a mystery." Yet the organization
    should know that at least 48 published studies have shown a history of abortion places women at significantly higher risk of premature birth
    and low-birth-weight.

    In fact, the doubling of risk may fully explain the full rise in premature births over the last 30 years.

    The only real mystery surrounding the alarming increase in premature delivery rates among the post-Roe generation of women is why the March
    of Dimes has failed to call attention to this major risk factor.

    Your help is needed to bring this hypocrisy to light, because March of Dimes is exploiting the "mysterious" rise in dangerous preterm deliveries to raise hundreds of millions of dollars while concealing one of the primary causes of premature birth -- a prior history of abortion.

    The rest of the story...

    March of Dimes Should be Honest

    (My husband used to have money for the March of Dimes taken out of his paycheck each week until he found out, it didn't matter what he had it earmarked for, a portion of it was going to Planned Parenthood.)

    Wow. You know, I never imagined that March of Dimes and planned parenthood were connected! Thank you for that information.

    You're right that it is hypocrisy for them to raise money to try to fight the rising premature birth rate, but not mention one of the main causes.

    To me it's the equivalent of an organization raising money to fight lung cancer while concealing that smoking is the leading cause just because they are in cahoots with the tobacco industry. :(

    They don't link to any of these 45 studies. I did some research, and the only studies I found that reflected the same percentages quoted here were in studies done between 1975 and 1981. I'm not saying that the research is faulty, just that I'd like to see some more recent research that gives such high numbers.

    We quit giving to the MOD years ago because of their tie to Planned Parenthood. We used to do the 20 mile walk and then the 20K walk, work at the aid stations etc. They need to come clean.

    I doubt that the March of Dimes wants to get involved in the politics of abortion as it assists in research to save the lives of babies.

    March of Dimes supports Planned Parenthood.

    Planned Parenthood supports abortion.

    Did you click on the link in my post and read the whole story?

    I do not see anything in the article that says that the March of Dimes supports Planned Parenthood.

    Also, that is a petition that someone drew up. Not a news story.

    Ken; I challenge you to do a search on the Internet and find a list of the organizations the MOD supports.

    I tried and could not find a list anyplace.

    I wonder why.............
