Early abortion became legal and has remained so despite a growing number of restrictions that revolve around such issues as parental consent. In recent years, pro-choice advocates have claimed that abortion is being banned by increments through a series of restrictions that erode the core “right” to reproductive choice. They offer as an example the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. The act makes no exemption for women whose health is at risk or for the diseases or deformities the child may suffer in life. Pro-choice advocates view this Act as a signal for a second American crusade for reproductive rights.
Talking with a professional and/or objective counselor can help a woman to receive education that allows her to consider her decision fully before she takes any action. It is essential to find a source of information that does not benefit financial from the abortion decision. Pregnancy centers are the best source of information and support to women considering abortion as well as assisting them emotionally after an abortion (abortion recovery).
