Group says Georgia case highlights problem of coerced abortions

From LifeNews.com:

Atlanta, GA (LifeNews.com) -- A leading post-abortion group for women who have had abortions and regret their decision says a recent Georgia case highlights the problem of coerced abortions. Representatives of the Silent No More Awareness campaign say they know women who have been pressured into abortions they don't want.

As LifeNews.com profiled, 44-year-old Cindi Cook is headed to jail for one year for lying about being the mother of a teenager girl supposedly seeking an abortion. However, Cook had talked the girl into having an abortion she otherwise didn't want.

Janet Morana, co-founder of the post-abortion group, told LifeNews.com, “This Georgia case shows just how far reaching the pressure to abort can be.”

“The claim of the pro-abortion lobby that terminating a child’s life is ‘a choice between a woman and her doctor or her God’ is empty rhetoric to the countless women I know who were intimidated or threatened by boyfriends, husbands, or relatives,” she added.

Georgette Forney, another co-founder, told LifeNews.com the burden should fall on abortion centers to make sure women are not pressured or coerced.

“Abortion clinics will not voluntarily ask girls or women if they’re being coerced into ending their children’s lives,” she explained.

Abortion clinics are in business to make money and the more abortions they perform, the richer everyone involved becomes; everyone, that is, except the woman who’s just had her life shattered and the baby who’s just had his life ended," she added. . .

Read it all. Georgette Forney is the national president of Anglicans for Life! Anglicans for Life will be at both GAFCON and Lambeth this summer, so any and all donations are appreciated.

This is a particularly shocking story for me because the boy's mom was circumventing the parental notification laws. I am so glad the state prosecuted the case.

Apparently she didn't want a baby interfering with her son's college plans - how tragic.
