Abortion Counseling Study

According to am abortion counseling study publicized in David Reardon’s book Aborted Women: Silent No More, out of 252 women who experienced postabortion trauma:

– 66% said their counselors advice was biased

– 40 to 60% described themselves as not having been certain of their decision prior to counseling

– 44% stated they were actively hoping to find an option other than abortion during counseling

– 5% reported that they were encouraged to ask questions

– 52 to 71% felt the questions were inadequately answered, sidestepped, or trivialized

– 90% said they were not given enough information to make an informed decision

– 83% said it was very likely that they would’ve chosen differently if they had not been so strongly encouraged to abort by others, including their abortion counselors

– “95% of women who had abortions at Planned Parenthood said that their Planned Parenthood counselors gave “…little or no biological information about the fetus which the abortion would destroy”
