I can prove it. how many doctors do you believe perform abortions in America?

2018-07-21 19:51:27 UTC  

there's about 500 or so.

2018-07-21 19:51:54 UTC  

there are about 750k abortions done in America every year, meaning that each doctor, on average does at least a thousand a year

2018-07-21 19:52:21 UTC  

most abortion doctors have been in their practice for more than 20 years.

2018-07-21 19:52:51 UTC  

doing the math, most of them have done around 20k or so per year, but that depends on the distribution. Some do more some less

2018-07-21 19:53:41 UTC  

I wonder how much money they usually make

2018-07-21 19:53:51 UTC  

compared to normal doctors

2018-07-21 19:54:45 UTC  

depends on where you are, but the number's I've seen is that they are not well compensated

2018-07-21 19:55:20 UTC  

yeah tend to have lowest STEP-1 scores

2018-07-21 19:55:25 UTC  

it's not a desirable job

2018-07-21 19:55:34 UTC  

OK but I fail to see the argument that

2018-07-21 19:55:39 UTC  

just because abortion doctors are mass-murderers

2018-07-21 19:55:44 UTC  

that means we shouldn't punish the patients?

2018-07-21 19:55:50 UTC  

You're just saying this because it's convenient

2018-07-21 19:56:03 UTC  

You could use the same argument and say

2018-07-21 19:56:05 UTC  

depends on whether you see women as a perpetrator or a victim

2018-07-21 19:56:07 UTC  

only mass-murderers should be punished

2018-07-21 19:56:10 UTC  

but i'm surprised they dont make a ton of money since theres a low supply of abortionists for the demand for abortions

2018-07-21 19:56:16 UTC  

it's literally the definition of a contract killing

2018-07-21 19:56:48 UTC  

consider this, RFayette, the rate prior to roe was around about 10k per year

2018-07-21 19:56:49 UTC  
2018-07-21 19:57:14 UTC  

some women are very desperate and will pursue abortion no matter what the law says

2018-07-21 19:57:31 UTC  

but most women? Have no interest in it. they want options. They want better choices

2018-07-21 19:57:42 UTC  

10k was the official rate

2018-07-21 19:57:42 UTC  

Yeah lol they will

2018-07-21 19:57:48 UTC  

how many do you think were undercover?

2018-07-21 19:58:01 UTC  

I didn't pull that number out at random

2018-07-21 19:58:05 UTC  

So why not give them a legal and safe and rare alternative to going to get one from a weird guy in a van

2018-07-21 19:58:12 UTC  

that is the number that Dr. Nathanson cited himself

2018-07-21 19:58:20 UTC  

how does Dr. Nathanson know

2018-07-21 19:58:22 UTC  

how many women

2018-07-21 19:58:27 UTC  

used techniques like

2018-07-21 19:58:29 UTC  

falling down stairs?

2018-07-21 19:58:29 UTC  

he was an abortionist prior to roe

2018-07-21 19:58:32 UTC  

drinking bleach?

2018-07-21 19:58:33 UTC  


2018-07-21 19:58:37 UTC  

these tend to be things done in secret

2018-07-21 19:58:43 UTC  

even if there was polling

2018-07-21 19:58:47 UTC  

he said he did about 50 thousand himself

2018-07-21 19:58:49 UTC  

people are well known to be dishonest

2018-07-21 19:58:57 UTC  

about this kind of stuff
