Planned Parenthood Wants Midwives and Nurse Practitioners to Perform Abortions

The Maine Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood recently filed a suit against Maine’s AG office challenging a 1979 law which requires all abortions to be performed by doctors. Maine’s abortion providers want to allow midwives and family nurse practitioners to perform abortions despite studies showing abortions performed by health providers other than doctors are much more likely to have medical complications. In the face of significant declines in abortion rates in both Maine and nationally, Planned Parenthood is reacting in desperation to clinic closures and threats of reduced funding. Pray that Maine’s courts won’t allow abortion providers to ignore safety concerns of women and unborn children in order to promote their death agenda.
