If Someone Is Pressuring You To Have An Abortion
When faced with an unintended pregnancy it’s your decision, and no one should decide for you or pressure you. According to The Justice Foundation, It is unlawful for anyone including parents, guardians, other relatives, boyfriends, or even counselors, to force, coerce, subject to duress or unduly pressure a pregnant person into having an abortion. The decision belongs to the mother, even if she is a minor (Bellotti v. Baird, 443 U.S. 622 (1979). The decision to have an abortion must be voluntary and fully informed. Once pregnant, she is a mother with the right to direct the upbringing and education of her child.
