National Abortion Federation Deaths

The National Abortion Federation is supposed to be the cream of the crop, the safest, most professional abortion providers in the nation. But a closer look shows otherwise. One participant in a NAF Risk Management Seminar admitted to lying to women in order to cover up injuries during abortions, and six of his fellows admitted to doing the same.

The contrast between what NAF says and what they do is striking. Even NAF's hotline workers are kept in the dark, the better to funnel women into what they're assured are safe facilities that adhere to the highest standards of care.

National Abortion Federation Promises
Screen capture of assurance of safe, quality care on National
Abortion Federation web site. It reads:
"What is a NAF Clinic? NAF is the professional association of
abortion providers in North America. .... In order to become a member,
a clinic must complete a rigorous application process. Member clinics
have agreed to comply with our standards for quality and care....
NAF periodically conducts site visits to confirm that our clinics
are in compliance with our guidelines.

In the sad cases below, you'll see for yourself how little women can count on prochoice organizations, even the most respected ones, to steer her safely through her abortion.

Also keep in mind that this is not a comprehensive list of women who've died after abortions at NAF facilities. These are just the deaths in which I was able to verify that either the practitioner or the facility was either listed on a NAF annual report as a member, or in which the facility was listed on the NAF web site as a member.
