Women who obtain abortions represent every religious affiliation, race and financial status
About 61% of abortions are obtained by women who have one or more children.
The birth control pill is one of most effective non-permanent methods of contraception – nearly 100% effective in preventing pregnancy.
The reasons women give for having an abortion underscore their understanding of the responsibilities of parenthood and family life.
