The Elliot Institute – Abortion Is The UN-Choice
Women Who Refuse Abortion At Risk of Coercion,
Discrimination, Violence and Even Death
Springfield, IL (May 20, 2010) – An updated report released by the Elliot Institute is drawing attention to attacks on pregnant women and girls — some of them deadly — in order to prevent them from continuing their pregnancies.
The Forced Abortion in America report also exposes the widespread epidemic of unwanted, coerced and forced abortions taking place in the U.S.
Indeed, research suggests that most abortions are unwanted or coerced, with one survey of women who had abortions finding that 64 percent said they felt pressured by others to abort and nearly 80 percent said they did not receive the counseling they needed to make a decision — even though more than half said they felt rushed or uncertain about the abortion.
