¿El Mundo que Queremos para 2015?
The World We Want 2015 es una iniciativa de Desarrollo de la ONU. Está abierta a asociaciones, fundaciones y estados. He comentado en nombre de HazteOir.org su borrador sobre la salud, Un documento 100% abortista, encaminado a promover el aborto en los países en vías de desarrollo como medio para reducir la mortalidad materna. Esta posición ha sido tumbada por la ciencia.
Os dejo aquí el comentario. Está en Inglés.
Firstly I would like to say, as a future Doctor, that there are more important health issues to be covered in developing countries than reproductive health issues. They are important, but they are not, and therefore should not be considered as, the key for health policies regarding this countries.Secondly. The approach to maternal mortality is cientifically doubtful. As recents studies show, free abortion does not reduce maternal mortality. For instance, this recent article published in Plos One, showing the case of Chilehttp://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0036613Showed that that
“During the 50-year study period, the MMR decreased from 293.7 to 18.2/100,000 live births, a decrease of 93.8%. Women’s education level modulated the effects of TFR, birth order, delivery by skilled attendants, clean water, and sanitary sewer access. In the fully adjusted model, for every additional year of maternal education there was a corresponding decrease in the MMR of 29.3/100,000 live births. A rapid phase of decline between 1965 and 1981 (−13.29/100,000 live births each year) and a slow phase between 1981 and 2007 (−1.59/100,000 live births each year) were identified. After abortion was prohibited, the MMR decreased from 41.3 to 12.7 per 100,000 live births (−69.2%). The slope of the MMR did not appear to be altered by the change in abortion law.”And the conclussions were clear “Increasing education level appears to favourably impact the downward trend in the MMR, modulating other key factors such as access and utilization of maternal health facilities, changes in women’s reproductive behaviour and improvements of the sanitary system. Consequently, different MDGs can act synergistically to improve maternal health. The reduction in the MMR is not related to the legal status of abortion.·
According to the World Health Organization, the African country with the lowest maternal mortality rate is Mauritius, a country with one of most restrictive abortion laws. Meanwhile, the South African case has become paradigmatic. Maternal mortality has increased 20 percent in the period 2005-2007 in South Africa, which since 1996 has had one of the most permissive abortion laws in Africa.
Thirdly I would like to call atention to the the rights of the women who want to have more kids. If we follow the statements issued on this report their rights will be narrowed, not broadened.
I do not believe that the world we want for 2015 is a word in which there is less poor people… because they have not been born.
In stead of forcing (it is politically-correct forcing what this report proposes) women to have less children (even by castration), should not the states, the WHO and NGO’s help them to be able to have all the children they want? Should not be granted the access to an appropiate health care to everyone?
It seems that lowering the number of poor people is the solution that the statement is giving for improving health and economy in developing countries. It is not an ethical or even humanitarian approach to the problem. It is just the easy and cheap solution. We can not support that.
