Why aren’t pro life groups supporting research to prevent miscarriages?

There are far more first trimester miscarriages than abortions.

Yet pro life groups don’t seem to even care about those miscarriages.

92.2 percent of abortions also take place during the first trimester.

Why are the aborted early pregnancies and more valuable to pro life groups than those who were miscarried?

In the United States there are only 13 abortions out of 1000 women of child bearing years.

20 percent of known pregnancies are miscarried every year.

A study about miscarriages in the United States was conducted between 2004 and 2014.


This was in the study’s conclusion

Miscarriages are common among parous women; 43% of parous women report having experienced one or more first trimester spontaneous miscarriages, rising to 81% among women with 11 or more living children. One in every 17 parous women have three or more miscarriages.

Because there are no votes in miscarriage prevention.

Where did you get the idea that they dont support this research?

Miscarriages are an act of God. Abortions are an act of man. Men can only control what men do. Is this really so hard for you libs to figure out?
So why do some people get all up in arms about an "act of man," but do not complain or otherwise brush off, an "act of god?"

Whether a woman chooses to abort (as is her right) or spontaneously miscarries, fetal tissue should hopefully be salvaged for research and/stem cell therapy. At least some good would come from those events.

Is this conversation too far over your head? Seems so. Maybe there are some cartoons you can watch instead.
No. Is it over your head?
Your opinion is noted.

A tornado is an act of God. What would you like to do about them?
A tornado is a weather phenomenon. Until we can develop weather modification technology, there's nothing we can do now, as we have no control. But somehow, "acts of god" tend to get a pass. But when someone chooses to exercise their supposed free will and choose to have an abortion, thereby having a measure of control, some people become angered about it, even if that choice has nothing to do with them.

People get angered because it ends a human life. Not sure how you dont know that by now.

Yeah I don't believe in God, so it would be pretty hard for me to figure that out.

Say what now? God can end a life and it's ok? God can allow a woman to get impregnated and then on a whim decide to allow a miscarriage and it's ok? Are you going to tell us it's god's plan because it would also be god's plan when a child is aborted.

Exactly.

There are more miscarriages during the first trimester in the United States than abortions.


Why is unborn in the first trimester of a pregnancy suddenly of more value to a pro life group if aborted than one who is miscarried ?

92.2 percent of abortions occur during the same time period as 90 percent of miscarriages take place.

There is a 1 in 5 chance that if an abortion had taken place the unborn may have been miscarried anyway.

Irrelevant. People don't seem to get mad at God when God ends a life.

What pro-life groups don't support research into preventing miscarriages? Please cite sources.

Who should they get mad at?
In the US, people get mad at the mothers and in some states, miscarriages are considered a crime. A woman in Alabama was indicted for manslaughter when she lost her baby after she was shot in the stomach. Breeders are highly valued here :rolleyes:
