Postabortion counselor: 90% of women I see aborted to please someone else

A woman who counsels women who regret their abortions says:

“Of the many women I’ve counseled, I would say that well over 90% of them aborted their babies to please someone else: their husbands, boyfriends, parents, or peer group… It’s a mockery to talk of a woman’s right to choose when she’s not the one doing the choosing.”

Are women who are pressured into abortion more likely to regret their choice?
