Mothers Rarely Make an "Informed" Choice on Abortion

More than 93% of all induced abortions are done out of "choice" and not for medical reasons (such as the health of the mother).

Abortion clinics, such as Planned Parenthood, have a vested financial interest in the decision made by the mother. Those at these clinics who “counsel" women on their "options" often act as if abortion is the only alternative. As a result, mothers rarely make an informed choice.

In fact, it is no doubt true to say that no other medical procedure is performed with the same degree of patient ignorance than an abortion. This is plainly wrong. There is no good reason why any woman should go through surgery of any kind, particularly induced abortion, or even take powerful drugs to induce an abortion and not be informed about potentially serious side effects.

Thus, mothers are rarely told the potential physical and mental health problems and other complications associated with abortion. They also are, variably ignorant about their child in the womb, and most importantly, are hardly ever afforded the opportunity to see their child on ultrasound. 

Surgical abortions are usually not performed before seven weeks, or 49 days LMP. At 21 days, the child has regular heart beats. Brain activity begins after 6 weeks of pregnancy. Almost all organs are completely formed by about 10 weeks after fertilization. At 12 weeks, the baby kicks, frowns, swallows, reacts to being touched and starts to suck. 

Expectant mothers rarely receive this and other important information before making a decision on abortion!
