, I BreakPoint with Charles Colson Commentary #021015 - 10/15/2002 Whose Choice Is 'Pro-Choice'? Abortion and the Violated Conscience When someone labels his position "pro-choice," whose choice does he or she mean? An article entitled "Who's Making the Choice?" in the Post-Abortion Review states, "[Hlundreds of .thousands of women undergo unwanted abortions ~ year to please someone else or because of pressure or coercion by their sexual partners, parents, social workers, counselors em loyers, or :;chool administrators." A boyfriend or parent threatens to throw her into the streets unless she foliows his or her wishes. A boss gives an empioyment ultimatum. Social or school stigma interferes with the "choice" the giri would otherwise make. According to a survey of 252 post-abortive women, more than half said they felt "forced" into the abortion by others. In one survey 70 percent of women "choosing an abortion"-so-called-say they believe abortion is immoral. They violated their own consciences because of pressure from people or circumstances.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
