Letter to Former Senator and Bank of Guam President, Lou Leon Guerrero

October 25, 2012

Dear Former Senator Lou Leon Guerrero, 

This morning on K57 you asked "Where are his facts?' in reference to my earlier comment that there is abortion on Guam almost every day.

Please follow this link for a copy of Guam Medical Records abortion report as required by law for the years 2008 through 2011. From 2008 to 2011 there were 1,157 reported abortions over 1,260 days. That equals one abortion every 1.089 days.

Also, Senator, please note the ethnicity data: 642 or 55.49% of those abortions were performed on Chamorro mothers. I am hoping that you see that there is a crisis here.

Also, the PDN reported recently that there are nine births per day on Guam which means that we are aborting one out of every ten children with more than half of them being of Chamorro descent. 

Does this concern you? And if you do not support informed consent legislation to at least advise mothers with unwanted pregnancies about adoption, then what do you support? Or are these numbers okay with you?

Please check with CPS. They have reported that even though they have a waiting list of more than ten parents in waiting, they have not had a child available for adoption in five years. 

Something is terribly wrong, Senator, terribly wrong. Your people are dying.

NOTE: I do not have Senator Leon Guerrero's contact information. If someone would be so kind as to forward this to her. Thank you.
