We believe that women have a civil right to be protected from individuals who are pressuring them into an unwanted abortion.
- Pressured into unwanted abortions by others;
- Mistreated by abortion practitioners or abortion counselors;
- Deprived of information relevant to making an informed decision;
- Injured physically, psychologically, and/or emotionally;
- Denied legal recourse to seek compensation for injuries inflicted upon us by sub-standard abortion practitioners; and/or
- Ignored by the media, legislators, and those who would presume to speak for us.
We believe that women have a constitutional and civil right to be fully informed of all the information that a patient may reasonably consider relevant to a decision regarding abortion.
We believe that women are entitled to fair compensation for injuries resulting from negligence or from a violation of their civil rights.
We believe the feelings and beliefs of women who have had abortions must be respected at all times.
We seek to protect the health and safety of women by holding abortion practitioners to the highest standards for medical care and accountability to their patients.
We seek to reduce the occurrence of unwanted abortions. We support the enactment of tougher laws that would protect women and minors from being coerced into abortions that are contrary to their maternal desires or moral beliefs.
We seek to eliminate legal obstacles that prevent or discourage women from seeking compensation for abortion related injuries and have thereby allowed the standard of care provided to abortion patients to deteriorate.
We seek to assist women who are suffering from a negative abortion experience to find appropriate counseling and healing.
We seek to create a more healing environment for those who struggle with the memory of a past abortion by creating a more sensitive and compassionate society. This will allow women to talk more openly about their abortions and to feel less fearful of condemnation if they need to seek assistance and support from their loved ones or professional counselors.
We are drawn to unite with our sisters and loved ones to give voice to our experience. -One voice makes a difference. Please join us now.
