Julie

We were told our two options: we could terminate the pregnancy or carry the baby to term and see what happened. I asked point blank about the chances of a miracle. They had no optimistic outcome to share with us.

Jeni, 34

At almost 21 weeks, Scott and I went to our appointment with the specialist. The sonogram operator asked us to be quiet, immediately changing the mood of the room.

Anti-choice people try to stop women from choosing abortion by scaring them. They warp scientific facts to push their agenda.

The Challenge

What's best for women's health and sound science should guide our public policy. Sadly, anti-choice groups don't agree. They try to use the government and other programs to spread misinformation and attack science-based research.

  • For example, they try to convince women that abortion causes breast cancer. False.
  • They might also say that women who choose abortion develop a mental illness. False.

We know that scientific studies say that neither is true. Opponents of choice don't care. They'll say anything to attack a woman's right to choose.

Our Solution

Opponents of choice spread lies to scare women. Don't let their false claims go unanswered.

We can fight these distortions of science. Every time you hear a false claim about abortion, please share the facts.
