I can understand why people find it easy to ignore my informed opinions on anything to do with health risks associated with abortions (for a few years now I have been raising awareness about abortion being used for female gendercide as an issue that should concern us).
But I would have anticipated that a pro-choice feminist would be harder to disregard. Nevertheless independent film-maker Punam Kumar Gill along with many (most) of the scientistic medical researchers she interviews are silenced (hushed) from open debate in the public square. Such are the days in which we live.
“The short film “Hush” presents a liberating conversation about abortion and women’s health. A “pro-choice” Director and a “pro-life Executive Producer” are an unlikely team that head up an unorthodox and unprecedented investigation into the health risks of abortion. Politics aside, this international award winning film seeks to start healthy conversation.
“Hush, which seems to me an objective overview of the situation, should be seen by pro-choice women, pro-life women and women who are simply concerned about themselves or their daughters achieving their reproductive goals with optimal chances for long-term health. That is to say, by pretty well all women.” – Barbara Kay, National Post
As one researcher on record says,
This has nothing to do with the morality about abortion… its about the morality about telling the truth about it.
“‘Hush’ is the result of an unusual team looking honestly at a highly sensitive and controversial topic. To properly handle the subject matter has required more care than transporting nitroglycerin… but an explosion is inevitable…
So when “pro-choice” Director Punam Kumar Gill, “pro-life” Exec. Producer Drew Martin and “neutral” Producer Joses Martin began conversations about the subject of the health effects of abortion on women, we weren’t sure whether such a partnership would be possible.
But we believed that if we could overcome our differences and work together, the outcome would be powerful towards the breaking down of political boundaries. Together we determined to maintain one goal, and only one goal, in the making of this film: to find the truth for the sake of women’s health. To do this, we would have to maintain a posture of honour towards ALL women, forgoing our personal opinions of whether abortion is right or wrong, good or bad. We united for the greater good: to ensure that the best possible care is being given to women.
In “Pro-Life” circles, hearing about the negative effects of abortion is a common thing. Churches and Crisis Pregnancy Centres will tell you about the psychological trauma, potential for physical damage, and even breast cancer, that abortion may cause.
On the other hand, in “Pro-Choice” circles, and at abortion clinics it is commonly told that the procedure is much safer than childbirth, that the psychological effects are the same as if you deliver the child, and the breast cancer connection is a closed case.
One way or another, someone is lying to women.”

I welcome informed discussion on this topic
I recommend a viewing of this short documentary that challenges our open-mindedness in an age of political correctness gone mad.
I advocate for deciphering the mystery of the inherent worth of the person, and this is, I contend, more enigma than dogma.
