"I was very upset when I came to the office. There was a lot of pressure from people I knew who were anti-abortion. The counselor was wonderful. She quickly calmed me down by telling me that she too had a similar experience as me, in terms of becoming pregnant on the pill, and had an abortion. She hugged me and urged me to remember that it was my CHOICE to decide what was best." -- Ellen, Brooklyn, N.Y.
"At the counseling session I told everyone that I was not ready for a baby, that I did not feel that I should be punished for my accident with a boy, and that I would take birth control from now on..
Almost a year later, I have no regrets about my decision ... the procedure really helped me understand how much I wanted a different kind of future. I will always be grateful to this office for helping me make the right decision, and taking care of me when I needed their expert help." -- Susan, Bronx, N.Y.
Once I filled out the paperwork, it seemed to happen very quickly. I was lying there and then I was out. I'm very glad I had the Twilight sleep and that the counselor was so supportive. -- Carrie, N.Y.C
"Most women want as many children as they can have."
The typical American woman wants two children, and is only pregnant (or trying to become pregnant) for a total of 3 years. She spends 30 years (most of her reproductive life) evading or avoiding pregnancy. Guttmacher.org -- August 2014 ]
"Only a few women actually want to have an abortion. If there were no abortion clinics, no one would have abortions."
Three out of every ten women have had an abortion by the age of 45.
It's OK to want an abortion. Please call 718-829-7000 to talk to a trained professional about terminating a pregnancy.
The decision to have an abortion is rarely simple. Most women base their decision on several factors, the most common being lack of money and/or unreadiness to start or expand their families due to existing responsibilities. Many feel that the most responsible course of action is to wait until their situation is more suited to childrearing; 66% plan to have children when they are older, financially able to provide necessities for them, and/or in a supportive relationship with a partner so their children will have two parents. Others wanted to get pregnant but developed serious medical problems, learned that the fetus had severe abnormalities, or experienced some other personal crisis. About 13,000 women each year have abortions because they have become pregnant as a result of rape or incest.
Each year, almost half of all pregnancies among American women are unintended. About half of these unplanned pregnancies, 1.3 million each year, are ended by abortion. There are many myths and misconceptions about who gets abortions, and why.
The fact is that the women who have abortions come from all racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds. If current rates continue, it is estimated that 35% of all women of reproductive age in America today will have had an abortion by the time they reach the age of 45.
The incidence of abortion can be tracked in two different ways. The first is simply to keep a tally of the total number of abortions obtained by women who fall into specified categories. Numbers tracked in this way are usually expressed as a percentage of all abortions provided in a year. Alternatively, the rate of abortion can be measured by calculating the total number of abortions obtained per 1,000 women who make up the total population in each category...
FACT:Research indicates that relief is the most common emotional response following abortion, and that psychological distress appears to be greatest before, rather than after, an abortion.
There are undoubtedly some women who, in hindsight, wish that they had made different choices, and the majority would prefer never to have become pregnant when the circumstances were not right for them. Women at risk for poor postabortion adjustment are those who do not get the support they need, or whose abortion decisions are actively opposed by people who are important to them..
