Another abortion tragedy

According to Christian Newswire:

Abortionist Hamid Sheikh has had his medical license suspended and his Lexington, Kentucky, abortion mill closed after the state's medical board revealed evidence of fraud, filthy conditions, and illegal abortions that led one reporter to describe Sheikh's clinic as a "hellish abortion operation."
This Kentucky case is not an isolated incident. Similar tragedies have occurred, for example, in California, and New Jersey.

A 2001 study showed that women who have abortions had five times more “hospital admissions for psychiatric problems” compared with women who had no abortions. In another study of 600,000 women showed that those who had abortions had a “six-fold increase in suicides” (RC).

Back in the pre-Roe v. Wade days when abortion was illegal, abortion advocates made a huge deal of the supposed back alley abortions performed with coat hangers (even though, as I understand it, their estimates of how many of these procedures were actually done were vastly overstated if not outright fabricated). The rallying cry was concern over the health of women.

Where is all the concern over women’s health now? Maybe the movers and shakers in the pro-abortion world weren’t nearly as concerned about the health of women as they were about other issues, say, making a lot of money or—following the agenda of Planned Parenthood's racist founder by cutting down on the birth rate of black babies!

Who knows, but for an industry that claimed to concerned about women’s health, there seems to be a lot of blatant disregard for women’s health! Not only is the national media shockingly silent about such tragedies, the abortion industry has Barack Obama’s whole-hearted support.

UPDATE: This story just in from LifeSite News via OneNewsNow just supports my post above:
ANN ARBOR, MI - A study conducted at the University of Michigan and published in The Journal of Immunology has indicated that "off-label use" of the controversial abortion drugs Mifepristone (Mifeprex) and Misoprostol (Cytotec), collectively called RU-486, may be linked to the death of at least eight women.

A press release from the American Life League states that Planned Parenthood's recommendation to use the abortion-causing drug Misoprostol vaginally rather than orally, contrary to FDA recommendations, has led to fatal infections directly causing the deaths of four of the women. Until 2006, Planned Parenthood told women to take the drugs Misoprostol and Mifepristone (RU 486) vaginally. This occurred despite FDA protocol instructing women to take the drugs orally. When five patients died from the drug combination, Planned Parenthood quietly changed the policy to fall in line with FDA protocol.

UPDATE: Another story just in from California:

Nine women came forward with stories of botched abortions received at
Bugarin's hand. Many women suffered from incomplete abortions and were forced to
return to have their abortions done again. One woman was hospitalized three
times, and birthed a live baby that died three hours later (Christian NewsWire).

I ask again: Where are all those who were supposedly so concerned over women's health when they argued against the danger of back alley abortions?
