Pro-abortion author gives reasons why women choose abortion

Patricia Lunneborg, author of Abortion: A Positive Decision, compiled the following statistics about why women have abortions:

  • Concerned about how having a baby could change her life: 92%
  • Not mature enough, or too young to have a child: 81%
  • Can’t afford a baby now: 73%
  • Doesn’t want others to know she has had sex or is pregnant: 42%
  • Has relationship problems and doesn’t want to be a single parent: 37%
  • Unready for the responsibility: 33%

she also says:

Women, in the main, do not have abortions because of rape, incest, deformed fetuses, or because their physical life is in danger…

The pathetic thing, in terms of public opinion, is that “I don’t want to have a baby at the moment” isn’t considered the most valid reason at all.”
