Women mostly sought late-term abortions over relationship instability, financial woes: analysis
Life Site News ^ | Kirsten Andersen

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – While abortion advocates have long maintained that late-term abortions are almost always procured by devastated mothers whose babies have received fatal diagnoses and aren’t expected to survive long after birth, an analysis by a network of crisis pregnancy centers of a recent study paints a different picture.

When researchers with CareNet dug into the data of the recent Turnaway Study (see previous coverage here and here), which was conducted by pro-choice advocates, they found that most women in the study who sought late-term abortions were between the ages of 20 and 24 and were in unstable relationships and had financial problems.

These women typically discovered they were pregnant later (12 weeks on average, compared to 5 weeks for those who sought earlier abortions), and were more likely to fight with the father over whether to have the abortion at all. It also took them longer to come up with the money for an abortion.

The CareNet team quoted one woman interviewed by the Turnaway Study’s authors who waited until 21 weeks to seek an abortion because, “I couldn’t afford it.”

“They told me it was going to be $650, [but] by the time I was able to raise the $650, they had to do a different procedure, and so the price went up,” the woman said. “The price jumped to $1,850 … and they don’t take insurance.”

The Turnaway Study tracked around 200 women who were refused abortions. Many of them sought late-term abortions, which was the reason they were turned away.

Chris Slattery, National Director of the EMC FrontLine Pregnancy centers, told LifeSiteNews the study “conforms to our experience” with women facing crisis pregnancies.

“Rarely do we find true medical emergencies amongst those considering abortion in late term pregnancies,” Slattery told LSN. “We often find emotional coercion by family and close friends, abandonment by the father, and financial stress is what most often drives expectant mothers to abort late in pregnancy.”

About 15,000 late-term abortions are performed every year in the U.S. – about 1.5% of the total number.

“Women who consider late-term abortion often do so from a place of desperation, and, perhaps, fear,” said CareNet CEO Roland Warren. “Yet, abortion only complicates the difficulties in her situation — and late-term abortion involves not only real suffering for the fetus but also serious risks to maternal health.”

Abortion after 20 weeks’ gestation been the subject of considerable controversy over the past year, as mounting scientific evidence that babies begin to feel pain at that stage of development has prompted state and federal legislators to introduce ‘pain-capable unborn child protection’ laws banning the procedure after 20 weeks.

Additionally, the shocking case of Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist convicted of murder for severing the spines of babies born alive after botched procedures at his filthy West Philadelphia clinic, highlighted the irony of laws that say it’s perfectly legal to decapitate fully-grown infants inside the womb, but move the exact same baby just a few inches and seconds, and it becomes a capital offense.

Around the same time Gosnell was convicted, Live Action released a series of undercover videos exposing late-term abortionists as equally willing to murder babies born alive after abortion. And the high profile death of a kindergarten teacher in Maryland after her botched late-term abortion raised public awareness even further, leading many to question why a woman would want to undergo such a risky procedure at all.

There would be zero abortions if the father would own up to his responsibilities and help financially and be a good father. Sounds absurd but it would be so.

You’re completely right; I have no idea what is going on with American men that they have become so wishy-washy. I don’t blame feminism or women in the workforce (both have indeed resulted from men shirking their responsibilities) and I don’t see why on holy earth American men are whining about how bad women are when THEY are the ones who are rutting around all the time.

You are absolutely correct - at its root, abortion is just as much mens' fault. The "Woman's Lib" movement has not liberated women, but has liberated men from all responsibility towards women.

What a surprise. This has been known even before the age of legal relatively safe abortion. In prior eras, women who were financially insecure and whose partner refused to accept his half of the responsibility would give up their children to orphanages etc. Also, do research on baby farms in the England. It’s horrific what happened to many of these children.

The reasons that led to those practices of the past are the same reasons so many women resort to abortion today, (including seeking late term abortion).

However, today, this is a flimsy excuse since no woman is required to keep and raise a child on her own and the child is not going to be subject to many of the abuses suffered by such children in past eras.

Sounds absurd because it is absurd. How about pregnancies where the woman doesn’t even bother to tell the father that she is pregnant and gets an abortion? How about the ones where the women are such tramps that they don’t even know who the father is? Or when they knowingly sleep around with men who have no financial resources?

Yours is probably the lamest attempt to pawn off responsibility for abortion that I’ve ever read. Anyone with a lick of sense knows that women are the ones making the decision, and men tend to have little, if any, say in the matter.

I don’t know if it would be zero but it would be a very small number. You are exactly right.

And this problem is ages old. It’s not something new.

The only thing that is new in our age is it is now more convenient and socially acceptable to get rid of the child.

Excuse me? What responsibilities do you think men shirked that led to these developments?

As for men “rutting around”, well, it takes two to tango. Who do you think men are rutting with?

Society did. It was just so much more convenient for people to condone abortion. It’s not just convenient for women, it’s convenient for a lot of people.

The only thing that’s a problem is us pesky pro-lifers standing in the way of all that convenience.

We need a return to fathers and brothers with shotguns and mothers who teach their daughters to keep their knickers on. Will there still be unplanned pregnancies? Yup. There always have been. In the past, though, most people generally grew up and faced their responsibilities to the child they made together.

Not entirely true. Many women, upon telling the man they are pregnant, are responded to with nothing more than an offer to go Dutch on the abortion. Some “choice.” And...those trampy girls are sleeping with whom??

I disagree. Out of wedlock births skyrocketed after the pill and “safe” sex became the agitprop in public schools and girls started sleeping with any Tom, Dick or Harry for popularity.

Boys/Men are weak in that regards—to take what is offered— and resisting sex is harder for them, than for a woman. It is male nature. Respect for women, their offspring, and their bodies disappear when women are not virtuous and require no love and commitment from males they sleep with.

Virtue in males disappears when women don’t expect Virtue in their men.

Women are responsible for their own poor choices. I would never have “slept” with or “dated” seriously men who would have wanted to kill their own genetic offspring-—much less been a woman who would kill her own genetic offspring, even if it meant I had to be living on the street.

I wanted a decent father for any children that I produced so I was picky...as all wise women used to be. There is not much wisdom in today’s young women anymore—nor virtue.

Abortions are a result of no Virtue in women—and that is probably because they weren’t taught Virtue by having a loving mother who was loved by her father. That desperate need for male love and attention that comes from a fatherless home devastates a girls understanding of males/relationships.

These foolish women who don’t believe in marriage and then have children, who are nothing more than leg spreaders for the various men who walk through these women’s lives,I say wake up! Have some respect for yourselves, get an education, a job, DATE men, and don’t bed em’ down on the first date, use birth control and protect your health, mental and physical. Search for a marriageable mate..have a plan of action for YOUR future and follow through with it. For those leg spreaders who get pregnant for the baby daddy and state funded money and all the perks that go with it, you’re part of the “pig society” who like to wallow in mud for free food and shelter. Generational members of the welfare state for life, by choice. You dumb, ignorant, foolish women reap what you sow. Keep your knees together, get an education, get a job, date and marry the man who measures up to your standards, and most of all, have a plan of action for your future. Women set the standards..be a real woman and start doing what is right, for yourself and for our society as a whole. And have a source of religious grounding in your lives..otherwise you’re just wandering, aimless, with no goals and no spiritually in your heart and soul.

Agreed. Yet, we’re not talking about pregnancies, we’re talking about abortion. The man only gets fifty percent of the “say” in that if the woman deigns to give it to him.

If a man wants an abortion, does the woman have to get one? No.

If a woman wants an abortion, can a man stop her? No.

Any way you slice it, the ultimate decision is hers. You can lay blame at the feet of both parties for whatever scenario got them to the point where they were considering that decision, sure. My point is, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how responsible men are, if women want to get abortions, they are making that decision, not the men.

I can't begin to tell you how incredibly wrong you are. I have worked directly with pregnant women who came to our pro-life group looking for support. Most of them were being pressured by their mothers/boyfriends/husbands to abort, or they had what they believed to be insurmountable financial issues. The vast majority, however, were pressured by men or their mothers.

So, blame women all you want, but I have talked to them directly, and most of them tell a different story. Additionally, if given a chance, many are looking for another way and will change their minds if given a chance.

Horse hockey. The only thing that would produce zero abortions is women not getting them.

Face it, every single abortion in this country is performed because a woman asked for the procedure

Entirely irrelevant. No man can compel nor prevent a single abortion in this country.

Pro-Life women admitting that fact would be a first step in changing this failed fight against abortion.

There would never have been a birth had he not had relations. There would never have been a question of abortion had he not had relations. So, technically he had 100 percent say on whether there was an abortion of his child.

You'd think, right?

Turns out, the prevailing "it's all about me" mindset of American women has ruined adoption, too.

From mandatory open adoption, to negotiated terms of adoption, to failed adoption, there's no such thing as a binding contract with a woman in this country if a child is involved.

There's a reason we went to the other side of the planet when we adopted.

While reviewing my grandparents' effects (after both had died), it became obvious that I am here because they "grew up and faced their responsibilities" ... as opposed to, let us say, killing my father by abortion.

In some cases, I think the men are rutting with other men!

As for the women, I think they are morons for not using birth control and not using general protection.

Frankly a huge reason I decided to abstain after breaking up with a boyfriend (nearly ten years of abstinence!) is because if I can’t afford a kid, I should not be having sex!

AS for responsibilities, they’ve been shirking their responsibility to show more respect for themselves and create a lot less baggage in their pasts. They should know by now that even the worst tart feels entitled to respect and a wedding ring.

Fine, then stop dragging men into the discussion of why abortions get performed.

Hell, we're just having an online discussion and women can't help but try to shift blame; what do you think they do when they're justifying their decision when they're really getting an abortion.

You’re saying this is a development that happened before feminism and women in the workforce?

So what? If a someone gets “pressured” to do drugs, rob a bank, or kill someone, do we let them off the hook because someone “pressured” them? Nope. They made the choice, they are responsible for their actions and decisions, regardless of whether someone “pressured” them.

There would be far fewer abortions if women only slept with men who would be willing to marry them. But, for many women, such men are not "exciting" enough.

Who do you think impregnates more ghetto girls: the McDonald's shift manager, or the hot, muscled "gangsta" who just got out of prison and is likely to be back in prison (or dead) before the year is out?

So the girl sleeps with the exciting guy, who also has enough girls interested in him that it's easier for him to dump a girl when she becomes bothersome and move on to the next.

And I wonder just how many of these abortions are by women who decided to deliberately get pregnant, in an effort to pressure the guy to come up with a ring, and who then abort when he decides she's good enough to sleep with, but not good enough to raise a family with?

You can’t argue with science. There would never have been a child had he not had sex.

A man should know that he is taking the chance of a pregnancy or an abortion unless he or the woman is unable to conceive a child. In the instance of a married man, he shouldn’t have to consider this (although it still happens).

I’m not sure why you are so hostile to what I wrote.

Because it's evasive and disingenuous.

The issue is abortion, not pregnancy. Women constantly conflate the two instead of admitting they are 100% responsible for each and every abortion performed in this country.

If men got to use credit cards any time they wished, but women had to prove they could make the payment before charging something, women would not be satisfied until the lenders were in jail!

Why do you think these ghetto girls do this? What is missing in their life (besides God) that would cause them to do this? Yep you guess it! THEIR FATHER! If they had a father in their life they would not do this because A. they’d be at home and B. their FATHER would run the getto, gangsta likely to go to prison trash off!

So don’t tell me men don’t play a roll in all this hell yes it does! It starts with the parents and I mean MOTHER and FATHER who are legally wed!

Any contrivance is acceptable except admitting the sole group that can put a stop to abortion is women.

I’m not trying to be either of those - evasive or disingenuous. Absolutely, the woman pulls the trigger when it comes to actually having an abortion. My only point is that a pregnancy is required for any abortion to ever occur....and THAT is controllable by both the man and the woman. Without any pregnancy, abortion is a moot point.
