From the US? Considering an abortion? Go to, a database of abortion malpractice information in the USA.

"When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit." Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Number of Abortions Performed by PP Increasing

How do we encourage this number to go down??

I would say that ultrasound and informed consent laws are a good start. But we should also make people aware of the help available to them. After all, no matter how well you internalize the humanity of your child, if you're scared and simply can't imagine how you could make a baby work, its very easy to convince yourself that abortion is ok. I can't count the number of times I have read this testimony:

"I was pro-life until I got pregnant - now I'm pro-choice because I had to have an abortion."

That's why we need to make sure that help is accessible and practical for pregnant women. No one should ever feel that they have to abort.

Stay tuned for a series of posts on great resources for pregnant women. :)
