BEHNA: FALSE! Pro-Abortionists Claim “95 Percent” Of Women Don’t Regret Having Abortion #MarchForLife
Abortion advocates tried to push the claim that "95 percent of women don't regret having an abortion."

During Friday’s large March for Life rally, abortion advocates tried to push the claim that “95 percent of women don’t regret having an abortion” to push their agenda.

Below were just some of them.

One of the main sources these abortion advocates probably get their stat from is a 2015 study published in a journal called PloS One, which has been used by liberal organizations including Think Progress.

According to a new study that tracked hundreds of women who had abortions, more than 95 percent of participants reported that ending a pregnancy was the right decision for them. Feelings of relief outweighed any negative emotions, even three years after the procedure.

However pro-life website AfterAbortion.org debunks the following stat as nothing more than a sham.

Here are some of the many flaws in the bogus study that they have found below.

Despite the initial selection bias, 15 percent of those agreeing to be interviewed subsequently opted out of the baseline interview and another 31 percent opted out within the three year followup period. This indicates that even among women who expected little or no negative reactions, the stress of participating in follow up interviews lead to a change of mind.

The authors report that sample has an elevated number of low socioeconomic backgrounds. That, too, makes the sample non-representative. The offer of $50 per interview may also have created a participation bias toward women who most desperately needed the money.

Notably, the claim of declining regret and declining negative reactions is at odds with Brenda Major’s two year longitudinal study, which also had high drop out rates, that found that there was a trend of decline in relief and increase in negative emotions over the two year period among those who did not drop out of her study.

It seems evident there is no way the leftists claim of 95 percent of women not regretting abortions holds true. Even if it were, that doesn’t make abortion ok. Just because a woman may not feel any regret from an abortion doesn’t change the fact that the horrendous act kills an unborn child.

It is sad when they use this flawed stat to push their agenda. All life is sacred, from conception to natural death.
