Is Abortion Safer Than Childbirth? (a discussion with my wife Chelsea)

My wife Chelsea returns to Truthspresso to continue a series discussing abortion.

We have emphasized how abortion takes the life of a human being made in the image of God. Unfortunately, the effects of abortion don't stop there. We discuss several of the physical and psychological/emotional effects that the abortion industry tries to suppress.

Chelsea holds a B.S. in Nursing from Regis University, a Masters in Nursing from Pensacola Christian College, and a post-Master's certificate in Certified Nurse Midwifery from the University of Colorado. She has worked as a pediatric nurse, has volunteered over eight years of work at crisis pregnancy centers in Colorado and Florida, and has delivered over 100 babies. Chelsea runs the website www.crmidwifery.com to offer her services. She is opening her own life-affirming clinic this year to serve women in the Denver Metro area.
