New Commercial Focusing on Pressure to Abort
Many women faced with an unwanted pregnancy may view abortion as their only solution. They may lack moral and practical support from their family and friends. Statistics indicate that women who have had abortions were encouraged to do so by boyfriends or parents.
According to the Elliot Institute, “Up to 64 percent of abortions involve feelings of being pressured to have an abortion, and other factors, such as rushed, deceptive, negligent or conflicted or profit-driven counselling, can also have a significant and often synergistic coercive effect.4
Furthermore, based on even the most minimal standards of care and human rights, such assembly-line care is exploitative at best and a recognized human rights abuse, even under liberal abortion laws… The same study found that those women who reported feeling pressured to have an abortion also reported higher rates of negative psychological reactions which they attributed to their abortions.”
No one should be pressured to do do something they don’t want to do.
