The Abortion Controversy: Data

CRAIN'S COMMENTS

Sometimes it’s useful to go past the talking heads and look at actual numbers to see what people are really saying.

We have to look at 2017, because that seems to be the latest year for which a full set of data is available. Of course, that’s pre-pandemic, which makes it a good year to study.

Let’s take the case of Mississippi.

  • The total population in Mississippi in 2017 was 2,984,100.
  • The abortion rate in Mississippi in 2017 was 4.3 per 1,000 women of reproductive age. Now of course, not every woman of reproductive age was actually pregnant.

Na vida, você passa por momentos difíceis, felizes, indecisões, perdas de entes queridos, surpresas agradáveis, talvez…uma notícia inesperada (…), Mas, em todas todos os momentos, você percebe o quanto é grande a sua coragem e ousadia?

Greta Thunberg delivers a climate warning at Glastonbury – BBC News

The earth’s biosphere is “not just changing, it is destabilising, it is breaking down,” the 19-year-old told festival-goers from the Pyramid Stage.

She criticised world leaders for “creating loopholes” to protect firms whose emissions cause climate change.

“That is a moral decision… that will put the entire living planet at risk”, she added.

But she ended on a message of hope, telling festival-goers they had the power to make a difference.

“We are capable of the most incredible things,” she said. “Once we are given the full story… we will know what to do. There is still time to choose a new path, to step back from the cliff.

“Instead of looking for hope, start creating that hope yourself.
