Pushed into unwanted abortions

The slogan, "Don't like abortions? Don't have one," doesn't hold water, especially when it comes to supposedly "medically indicated" abortions. The reality of legalization isn't making "needed" abortions safer and more accessible for sick women, or women carrying severely handicapped babies. The realty is women who ordinarily wouldn't resort to abortion being frightened into them by doctors who are giving them inaccurate information.

Deborah Cardamone is fighting to introduce legislation in the US that would protect women from being given bogus information to frighten them into abortions. Debbie knows whereof she speaks: her daughter, Marla, was browbeaten into an unwanted abortion that took her life -- all to abort and "abnormal" fetus that was in all liklihood perfectly healthy!
