legalized abortion causes more deaths in Chile

From World...

Abortion advocates claim that legalizing abortion leads to fewer maternal deaths but, according to research from Chile, the opposite is true. Chile made its abortion laws stricter in the 1980s, but between 1960 and 2000 the maternal death rate underwent the largest reduction of any Latin country—from 275 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births to 18.7 deaths.

Chile's maternal death rate is now lower than any other country in South America, according to a recent World Economic Forum report.

A lot of this is due to technological advance and free-market driven economic growth which can take advantage of it. So, another ode to freedom and markets-- with at the least, a provocative correlation between welfare of the abortion and abortion law.
