Abortionists refuse to abort poor women, study says

One study showed that:

One of the most common reasons why abortionists either refuse to perform an abortion or refer the patient elsewhere is her lack of money (the other is age)

“Obstetricians were least likely to become involved in the care of women described as having “no money” or “on Medicaid.”

Paul Sachdev “Perspectives on Abortion” (Metuchen, NJ: The Scarecrow Press, 1985) p 215. Essay entitled “Physicians, Hospitals and Abortion: The Influence of Attitudes in Medical Practice” by Constance A. Nathanson

This shows that money is a big factor in determining who will have abortions and who will not – abortion clinics do not do abortions for free. Abortion is a business. Like any other business, abortion clinics’ goal is to make money.
