According to the Washington Enquirer, this Wednesday (the 15th), Cong. Chris Smith and Patrick Fagan of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute (which I think is affiliated with the Family Research Council) will present a new study on who has abortions.
– Rather than the one-third of women commonly cited by abortion supporters as having obtained an abortion, the number is actually one-sixth.
– Almost three-quarters of abortions are performed on women who had sex at age 16 or younger.
– 40 percent of women who begin sexual intercourse very early (ages 12 to 14) have abortions.
– There is no great difference by income status in the percentage of women who have abortions.
The implications for “sex-ed” programs and the “they are going to do it anyway” mentality are truly earth shaking! Leaders like the Clintons talk about making abortion rare. Pro-abs talk about the difficult decision.
We have always known it was best for people to wait for marriage, but here is whole new proof that, again, mother knows best.
