Abortion and Coercion - the Shocking Truth

Abortion and Coercion - the Shocking Truth

"My choice" and "a woman's right to choose" are key slogans among pro-abortion campaigners. central to the abortion industry. In truth though, women are often forced into abortions which they don't want - it's someone else's decision.

Many abortions take place because a woman feels she has no choice - either because of her circumstances, or because she has been forced by her partner, family, or even medical professionals.

The horrific phenomenon of abortion coercion is all too common, and pro-lifers like us need to understand it, so that we can campaign effectively for protection for vulnerable women and their unborn children.

Coercion is defined as the use of force or threats to make someone do something against their will. In the case of women being coerced into having abortions, the coercion can come from a variety of sources. Women may be pressured by their partners, family members, or friends to have an abortion, often because the pregnancy is seen as an inconvenience or a barrier to achieving their goals.

As Christians, we believe that every life is precious and that human beings are created in the image of God. This means that we must do everything in our power to protect and defend the sanctity of life, including the lives of unborn children. 

It is a tragic reality that many women feel that they have no other option but to terminate their pregnancy, often under pressure from those around them. This is not only a violation of their autonomy and dignity but also a grave injustice to the unborn child who is denied the chance to live.

Abortion is often presented as a quick and easy solution to an unwanted pregnancy, but the reality is far more complicated. Abortion is a traumatic experience that can have serious physical and emotional consequences for women, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

In conclusion, the problem of women being coerced into having abortions is a complex and serious issue that demands our attention. As Christians and pro-life advocates, we must do everything in our power to protect the sanctity of life and to create a society that values and supports women and their choices. We must work to eliminate the root causes of coercion, provide women with the resources and support they need to choose life, and educate society about the true nature of abortion. By doing so, we can create a world where every life is cherished and protected, and where no woman feels coerced or powerless when facing an unexpected pregnancy.
