Reproductive Rights

Hi,

Would you be able to help me with some statistics? I'm pro-choice & I'd like some statistics that pro-choice people use to refute the pro-lifer's. Like how many children are molested, starve to death, are beaten, abandoned, etc.?

Thanx

   

There is a great book called Is the Fetus A Person? by Jean Schroedel. The book examines each state's pro-choice policy and compares it to that state's pro-child policies. For example, are there parental consent laws? Is there a 24 waiting period, etc.? Consistently, the most pro-choice states were the most pro-child states, meaning that they devote more money to school lunch, Head Start, etc... This proves that those who are pro-choice are pro-child. I suggest you check out this book - the author is a professor at Claremont Graduate School in California. Also, check out the site of The National Abortion Federation. I hope that helps.

Amy
