STATEN ISLAND, New York, Aug. 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- The co-founders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, the nation's largest network of women hurt by abortion, said today that a new Arkansas abortion law is needed nationwide.
The newly adopted measure requires abortion businesses to post a sign stating that women cannot be forced to have an abortion they don't want.
"I can't tell you how many women I know who've been pressured into aborting by a boyfriend, husband, or parent," said Georgette Forney of the SNMAC. "This Arkansas statute is really just a gentle reminder to women that no one has the right to threaten or intimidate us into terminating our children. Everyone in every state should support this type of legislation. After all, how could someone who says he's pro-choice oppose a law that tells a woman she has a choice?"
SNMAC co-founder Janet Morana added that the law is needed because abortion clinics have a financial interest in women having abortions. "No abortionist is voluntarily going to post a sign telling women that they can't be forced into an abortion," said Ms. Morana. "He's doing abortions to make money and part of his livelihood depends on women who are being pressured into doing something they really don't want to do. For the abortionist, the bottom line is the bottom line. Anyone who thinks the abortion industry will do something that might reduce the number of abortions and, thus, its profit margin, is deluding himself."
