Thomas Hilgers, MD, studied various sources to determine the safety of abortion. Pro-life writer pastor John Ankerberg writes:

After examining “the vast body of the world’s medical literature on the subject” he concluded that “the medical hazards of legally induced abortion are very significant and should be conscientiously weighed.”

Found in John Ankerberg The Facts on Abortion (2011).

This is an older quote, but it shows that shortly after abortion’s legalization, the procedure was not as safe as pro-choice activists had claimed it would be.
