Every 96 seconds, a woman makes a decision that changes her life forever.
An estimated 876,000 abortions took place in the United States in 2018, with roughly 18% of all pregnancies ending in abortion (not including miscarriages).
In fact, nearly a quarter of all women will experience the pain of an abortion by the time they reach 45 years of age. They often suffer the rest of their lives in shame and silence.
Women from marginalized groups are particularly at risk due to socioeconomic hurdles and challenges.
Black, Hispanic, and other ethnic minority women account for 62% of all abortions.
Many women are directly or indirectly coerced into their abortions, which they later come to regret.
About half of all women who have an abortion cite financial hardship or unpreparedness as their reason.
Women need to understand that another option is possible. They don’t have to end the life inside them and find themselves regretting it for years to come.
It’s time to break the silence and save two lives in the process.
