Abortion -- The UnChoice

For decades, many women were denied help when they needed it most or given false or misleading
information from trusted health care providers, parents and even pastors. Some were told there was
no available help. Others were deceived about fetal development and kept in the dark about
alternatives, even though studies indicate the majority felt rushed and uncertain, or pressured by
others. Few were screened for evidence of unwanted, coerced or forced abortion. Now, many are
expected to absorb the significant, heartbreaking, and even deadly aftereffects alone.

  • Why are they calling abortion the UnChoice?
  • 64% of abortions involve coercion
  • 84% were not fully informed
  • 52% felt rushed and 54% uncertain beforehand, yet ...
  • 67% received no counseling beforehand, and
  • 79% were not informed about alternatives
  • Coercion can escalate to violence
  • Homicide is the leading killer of pregnant women

Clearly, this is not a free, fair or fully informed “choice.” Nor is it a just substitute for the full
disclosure, meaningful alternatives and other support that women need and deserve.

Those who would pressure or even force teens and other women into unwanted abortions must be
informed that:

  • Risk of death for women is 62% higher after abortion
  • 31% suffer health complications after abortion
  • 65% suffer symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • 60% said “part of me died”
  • Teens are 6 times more likely to commit suicide if they’ve had an abortion in the last 6 months
  • Clinical depression risk is 65% higher after abortion
  • Suicide rates are 6 times higher after abortion*
