FROM ABORTION HAVEN TO NO ABORTIONS - GUAM. THE REST OF THE STORY.

By Tim Rohr

For nearly 30 years our “Catholic” island of Guam was the abortion capital of the nation in terms of providing the fewest legal protections for the unborn. A friend and I discovered this sad fact when we compared Guam’s abortion laws to a state by state study published by Americans United for Life in 2008. 

Compared to all 50 states and other U.S. Territories, Guam had the fewest laws regulating abortion; in fact, only two: 1) only physicians could perform abortions, and 2) abortions were supposed to be reported (to GMH Medical Records). 

After the Supreme Court decisions in Webster v Reproductive Health Services (1989) and Planned Parenthood v Casey (1992), states began enacting legislation that increasingly regulated abortion such as restricting the use of state funds, requiring informed consent and parental consent (for minors), requiring abortion providers to have local hospital admitting privileges, and mandating normal medical care for babies who survive an abortion. But Guam did nothing. Why? CONTINUED

  1. The governor has nothing to fear.
    She’ll soon find an abortionist to come live out here.

    This new doctor won’t deal with pneumonia or scabies.
    He’ll rid the island of unwanted babies.

    So things will be fine in the end, don’t you see?
    For the new butcher has a medical degree!
