A study interviewed women who went into abortion facilities while pro-lifers were sidewalk counseling or protesting outside.
60% of women going into clinics for abortions weren’t upset by pro-life sidewalk counselors and protesters, the study found. The study was done in 2011 by pro-choice researchers.
This disproves the common pro-abortion claim that pro-lifers outside of abortion facilities traumatize women with their offers of help.
