Dirty Little Secret? Abortion Death Rates Covered Up

According to a recent article from the Elliot Institute, although the Centers for Disease Control are charged with the responsibility to keep track of deaths due to abortions, as they are other important health related data, they fall far short of their duty for unknown reasons.
