Parents try to coerce teens into late abortions

From Mary Kenny, who did a great deal of research on abortion for her book:

“Sometimes a younger woman will be pressed into a late abortion by her parents – in this case it is the parents who are panicking – and in abortion clinics it is common to see young girls accompanied by their mothers, who have frog-marched their daughters there. This is, it seems to many experienced observers, a very unwise course for a parent to take. Parents (or anyone else) should never force a girl into an abortion; it builds up problems for the future, and quite often invites a repeat pregnancy.”
