Why Do Women Get Abortions?

    In a recent survey from the pro-abortion Alan Guttmacher Institute (Planned Parenthood’s research arm), women gave the following reasons for having an abortion:

  • 75% said the baby would interfere with their lives.
  • 66% said they couldn’t afford a child.
  • 50% didn’t want to be a single parent or had problems in their current relationship.
  • 4% had a doctor who said their health condition would worsen.
  • 1% had a fetal abnormality.
  • 1% were victims of rape or incest.
    Contrary to common perceptions, almost 95% of all abortions are for reasons of convenience, not for rape, incest or the mother’s health.

Late-Term Abortions

    In Roe v.Wade (1973) the Court allowed states to restrict abortions in the last three months, “except where it is necessary...for the preservation of life or health of the mother.” However, in Doe v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe, the Court defined “health” to include “all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age – relevant to the well-being of the patient.” Because of this broad definition of “health,” the Court, in effect, permitted abortion-on-demand in all 50 states right up till birth for any of these reasons.
