In response to abortion laws being passed in certain states, Planned Parenthood, led by that group’s president, have been warning about a SCOTUS challenge to Roe v. Wade and using a certain talking point:
Before Roe v. Wade, thousands of women died every year — and because of extreme attacks on safe, legal abortion care, this could happen again right here in America. #WeWontGoBack https://t.co/9orqLaif0J

You hear this claim from Dems and @PPFA all the time, but there's no evidence that "thousands" of women died every year from botched abortions before Roe. Per @GlennKesslerWP https://t.co/IWOn6gtlSL #factsmatter

Another Dem talking point bites the dust.
