Is Coercion of Women Acceptable ?

Sixty-four percent of post-abortive women surveyed indicated they felt coerced to abort, having no choice but to comply with the wishes of others.

The #1 cause of death among pregnant women is homicide.
Pregnant black women are seven times more likely to be murdered than pregnant white women. Often times the woman's refusal to abort precipitates the crime.

When women are threatened to abort, up to 80 percent feel guilt, regret, loss and depression afterward, especially if the coercion violated their conscience. They subsequently have shorter relationships, more divorces, live in poverty, repeat abortions, experience substance abuse and many more risk factors.

Studies indicate that there is a correlation between domestic violence and repeat abortions.
