When people talk about abortion, one is likely to hear a great deal about the social, moral, and even religious reasons for having or not having an abortion, but little about the basic medical details. In fact, many women make the decision to have an abortion without ever discussing either the medical procedures or the health considerations with anyone. Some are threatened by boyfriend or parent to have an abortion. The law gives no one but the mother the voice in making the decision about the life of the unborn child. Perhaps no other procedure is performed with this degree of patient ignorance.
It does’t have to be that way.
American citizens have a right to be informed about things that might affect their health. There is no reason why any woman should go through surgery of any kind, especially induced abortion, or take powerful drugs that induce abortion, and not even be informed about potentially serious side effects.
Before making a decision that could change your life forever, it only makes sense to get all the information you can on the procedure and its potential effects on you and the child you carry.
