The Effect Of Abortion On Women
The effects of abortion on women are argued about constantly. Diana Greene Foster, a demographer, chose to step away from the ideological battles and find hard numbers instead.
So she and a team of researchers spent ten years tracking the lives of a thousand women who got pregnant without meaning to. Some of them got abortions, some of them were denied.
The results, published in The Turnaway Study, indicates life got better by several measures for the women who got abortions. Diana Greene Foster talks about the methodology, the findings, and the implications.
