Come listen to the FRC's Marriage and Religion Research Institute team as they discuss the National Survey of Family Growth's numbers on aborting women in America. Some of the important findings that will be discussed include:

  • Almost 3/4 of abortions are to women who initiated sex at age 16 or younger
  • 40% of women who begin sexual intercourse very early (12-13-14) will have abortions
  • No great difference by income status in the percentage of women who procure abortions
